Good Monday morning! Thanks for stopping by. Welcome to all my new followers who joined My Book Retreat during the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop last week. Each Monday, I participate in this meme, hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, in which I share what I've been reading and reviewing over the past week.
Last week, I put up a review of Replay by Ken Grimwood. It was a great sci-fi novel that prompted some interesting discussions during my book club meeting a couple weeks ago.
As far as reading goes, I didn't manage to complete either of the two books I was reading last week, and I also picked up a third book! So now I'm halfway through three different books. I never do this to myself and am a bit frustrated, so I know I will be done with all three by next Monday! I generally prefer to read one book at a time.
My son is still reading the Septimus Heap book, Flyte, by Angie Sage. It's hard to believe he's been on that same book for several weeks. I think my exceptional reader is slacking this summer. I may need to start pushing him a bit to get back into reading over the rest of his break!
So I'm still reading ec-o-nom-ics: a simple twist on normalcy by Kersten Kelly and 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James. I'm also reading The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce. I'm scheduled to put my review up for that book tour tomorrow, so I'll definitely be finishing that one today!
I'll need to pick up 15 Seconds by Andrew Gross next since that's my next book tour that's coming up next week.
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.
