Good morning. I'm writing this ahead of time since I'll be on the road on Monday, heading home from a weekend in Myrtle Beach visiting my mother-in-law. We had a nice weekend, even though it was pretty cold at the beach.
Last week, I had my book club meeting where we discussed Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand. I didn't manage to finish the book before the meeting, and I still have about 50 pages to go, but it was still a great discussion. I didn't bring the book on my trip so I'll finish it this coming week.
I did bring my Nook to the beach, so I started reading The Ruins of Us by Kaija Parssinen.
Last week, I wrote two reviews. The first was for The Secret of the Sacred Scarab by Fiona Ingram, a middle grade novel that was very good. The second was for The Art of Life by Sabin Howard and Traci L. Slatton, the first book for my Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge.
This week, I hope to get time to write a couple more reviews since I'm a bit behind.
I plan to finish Unbroken this week, and then I'm hoping to also finish The Ruins of Us.
Next, I'll be moving on to another middle grade book, Nate Rocks the World by Karen Toz.
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.
