Weekly Reading Recap


Welcome back! I hope you've had a good week. I've done a lot of reading this week as part of the High Summer Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. So this week's recap serves as my finish line for that read-a-thon.

Last week, I read the following during the read-a-thon:
As far as reviews go, I'm still very far behind. I did put up my review of 15 Seconds by Andrew Gross. That's it. I have several books on my list to review now, including the rest of the books mentioned above, and:
That's six reviews I need to write, and I'm heading out on vacation this week, so I doubt I'll have much time to write...

My son is still reading Gregor the Overlander by Suzanne Collins, and he has the second book in the series ready to go. My daughter has been busy reading several books by Syd Hoff lately.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill. Just one book! Finally!

Up Next
I'm going to read Play Him Again by Jeffrey Stone 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.

  1. Read-a-thons do get you concentrating on page counts more than usual, and they are a great way to tidy up your stack! I'm never reading only one book at a time, but I do have a smaller stack than ever right now. I just finished the Lawrence Hill novel (which is titled The Book of Negroes here) and thought it was absolutely amazing. The audio version is beautifully presented as well.

    1. I'm so glad to hear you enjoyed it. I have another friend who just finished it too, and she loved it also.

  2. Right now I'm trying to get back into The Candymakers (middle grade book by Wendy Mass) after reading the first 100 pages and then ten or so other books before picking it up again!

    Sounds like you made some great progress this week!! :) It's nice to go back to just reading one book after reading several. I hope you review Someone Knows My Name! I've got that one on my list, but haven't read much about it in the way of reviews. Happy reading!

  5. I hope you enjoy reading ONE book at a time for once, lol ;) I've never been able to read more than one at a time, my poor brain would explode

    Happy reading this week!

    1. I don't usually read more than one at a time so I'm really enjoying being able to focus on just one again.
