Good morning. I hope you've had a good week and weekend. We spent three hours at the pool on Saturday and several hours at birthday parties yesterday, so it was a busy weekend!
Last week, I put up a review of The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. I just loved this book. It's a fabulous work of literary fiction and I hope to be able to discuss it with my book club at some point.
I got quite a bit of reading done last week as well. I finally finished 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. I'll write my thoughts about that later this week.
My son finally gave up on the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage. I'm not sure what he didn't like about it but when he had been reading the second book for about a month, I finally told him it was okay if he didn't want to finish it! Now, he's reading Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins. He seems to like it but said he was disappointed there isn't really any magic in the story, so I'm not sure if he'll want to read the whole series.
I'm still reading ec-o-nom-ics: a simple twist on normalcy by Kersten Kelly. Actually, I've had it on hold for a bit so will finish it up this week. I'm also reading 15 Seconds by Andrew Gross for a book tour on Wednesday.
I'm going to read some poetry next: These Ties by William Bortz. I'd also like to pick up Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill since it's been on my shelf for so long and my friend just read it and loved it.
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.
