Good morning! I hope all my US friends are enjoying this Labor Day. It's cloudy and dreary here, so I'm very glad we spent a few hours at the pool on Saturday before this rainy weather arrived. We aren't planning any cookouts today, but we are happy that my husband is returning from a hunting trip with his friend. He's been gone since Friday, which means I've been doing a ton of reading! That's the one benefit of being left home alone with the kids for three nights!
I read two books this past week. First was The Mine by John A. Heldt, which I really loved. It's a mix of time travel and historical romance. Although I have a backlog of reviews to write, I am thinking of writing this one up this week while it's fresh in my mind.
The other book I read is Sitting Kills, Moving Heals by Joan Vernikos. I'll be posting that review tomorrow for the book tour, and then I have a guest post from the author going up on Wednesday.
My son finished Justin Case: School, Drool, and Other Daily Disasters by Rachel Veil and also read the next book in the series, Justin Case: Shells, Smells, and the Horrible Flip-Flops of Doom. He was sad to learn that there aren't any other books in the series yet. So he moved on to The Genius Files #2: Never Say Genius by Dan Gutman. I had read the first book in that series to him last year and we both really liked it. Obviously, the reading log he has to do for third grade is getting him back into reading!
Last night, I sat up until 2:00 a.m. reading the first half of The 13th Target by Mark de Castrique. It's quite good but I am very tired now!
Next, I'll be reading Play Him Again by Jeffrey Stone.
