Weekly Reading Recap


Well, I'm back for another recap despite the fact that I didn't manage to post at all this past week. Sorry about that. The Olympics have seriously impacted my reading and my blogging. I promise as soon as they are over, I will get back to writing more. Actually, my plan this week is to finish the book I'm currently reading, and then focus on writing some reviews before I pick up my next book. We'll see how that goes...

I did finally finish Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill. Wow! What an amazing book. I can't believe it sat on my bookshelf for so long! If you have it, read it. Review to come very soon.

I also signed up for Sit Down and Write Write-a-Thon. Hopefully that will give me a chance to get some reviews written later this month! It takes place the week of August 20th. Sign up if you have some writing to do too.

Currently Reading
I'm still reading Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynn Truss and I love it! I think that's mostly because I'm an editor and can completely understand her obsession with punctuation. But I wish everyone would read it!

Up Next
I have a couple book tours coming up at the end of the month, and I've decided to read one of those next, since I also want to spend time writing reviews this week. So I'll be reading A Leprechaun's Lament by Wayne Zurl. I really enjoyed his previous novel A New Prospect, which also featured the Sam Jenkins character.

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. I think it is good to let the real world impact on our online world from time to time. However having said that Julie I am pleased to have linked up with you on FB!

  3. Ah, glad to hear I'm not the only one not doing much writing or blogging lately! In my case, it;s family stuff going on rather than the Olympics (though my son has been glued to the TV!).

    And I LOVE the idea of the write-a-thon (and REALLY need it), but there's no way I can get much writing done until school starts.

    I listened to Eats, Shoots & Leaves on audio and loved it! Very clever.

    Enjoy your books AND the Olympics this week!
