Good morning. I hope you had a wonderful week. Mine was busy but fun. I participated in the Dewey's 24 Hour Readathon, which didn't go all that well for me. (Read my wrap-up here.) And I also participated in the Wonderfully Wicked Read-a-Thon, which was more successful for me. (Read my wrap-up here.) I think I've learned that I don't do well with short read-a-thons. I need those longer, 3-day or week-long read-a-thons. The 24-hour one really put the pressure on, making reading feel like a chore instead of fun. I know a lot of people love it, but I don't think I'll do that one again.
Anyway, here's what's been going on around here.
I hosted an interview with Ray Evans, author of Before the Last All Clear.
I finished reading Commune of Women by Suzan Still, and wrote a review for that. You can click on the title to read the review.
I also reviewed Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.
I shared some pictures of all the bookshelves we have in our house as part of the weekly Fall Into Reading Challenge Q&A.
And I celebrated my second Blogiversary last week, giving away a copy of my favorite book so far this year, The Keeper of Lost Causes by Jussi Adler-Olsen, to one of my followers, Marce from Tea Time with Marce.
And finally, I shared some books my kids have been reading.
I'm almost done with The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen. I'm also about halfway through Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
I'm going to move on to Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford next.
What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.
