Good morning. Well, it's been a slow week here at My Book Retreat. I didn't manage to post at all. Sorry about that! I think BBAW wore me out the week before! As usual, I have several books to write reviews for, so I really should have done a few last week. Maybe this will be the week to get caught up!
Once again, I put aside the review book I've been trying to read. I'm starting think this one may need to be put aside indefinitely. I just can't seem to get into it, despite all the good reviews I've seen for it. Instead, I've been busy reading a very funny middle grade book that I picked up at the library on a whim: The Hero's Guide to Saving your Kingdom by Christopher Healy. It's quite entertaining.
My husband is still reading Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. It's pretty funny to hear his predictions about what's going to happen since I already know what's really going to happen!
My son finished Gregor and the Prophecy of Bane by Suzanne Collins, and is just about done with the next book, Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods. He took Gregor and the Marks of Secret to school this morning since he figures he'll be ready to start it today. He is really enjoying this series!
As mentioned above, I'm reading The Hero's Guide to Saving your Kingdom. I'm just about done with it.
Next up will be a memoir: Truth Be Told by Larry King, which I have for review.
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.
