Good morning. I hope you've had a nice week. I am finally able to say I'm not sick. Well, I did still have to use the inhaler this morning, and had my last dose of Prednisone this morning, but I really am feeling much, much better. Finally!
I spent quite a bit of time reading The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton this week, and finished it on Saturday. I'm so glad I finally read it. What a unique and interesting story.
I wrote up my review of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. Now I just have a backlog of three more reviews to write. Ugh!
Last week, I also shared Scholastic's list of the Hottest New Children's Books of the 2011 Holiday Season. I'm really hoping to buy books for most of the children on my list. The only issue is knowing what they've already read!
For the second week of Picture Book Month, I reviewed all the books my kids and I read that went along with the daily themes: transportation, birds, monsters, gardens, mice, chickens and sea were last week's themes.
And finally, I joined one last 2011 book challenge (I'm refusing to join any for 2012 until mid-December). I'm going to participate in The Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge, which sounds like fun!
I put up a poll last week and The Book Thief by Marcus Zusak received every single vote, so I will be starting that one tonight. I'm looking forward to it!
Help me decide what to read next. These are the remaining books on my Fall Into Reading Challenge list. Which should I choose?
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.
