Weekly Reading Recap


Hi! I had another busy week on the blog, mostly due to the fact that I had a backlog of reviews to publish. I need another Bloggiesta event to get more reviews written now!

Here are the reviews I published last week:
Bossypants by Tina Fey
The 13th Target by Mark de Castrique

I also wrote about the Junie B. Jones series by Barbara Park for Banned Books Week. I'm giving away the first book in that series so be sure to enter if you're interested!

As far as reading goes, I finished Truth Be Told by Larry King. It's an interesting collection of his stories and memories.

And for those of you participating in my Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge, be sure to check out the Third Quarter Recap post and enter to win a Malcolm Gladwell book!

My husband finished Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins. Like me, he felt that the series went downhill as it progressed. He was annoyed by Katniss and thought it just got to be too much in the end. I'm hoping I can convince him to pick up another book soon!

My son is reading the third book in the Septimus Heap series by Angie Sage and Mark Zug: Physik. Actually, he's probably done with it at this point; he took it to school today and didn't have much left to read. I guess we'll need to make a run to the library later to get the next one!

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Leaves by Michael Baron and Election! by Dan Gutman.

Up Next
Next up will be Cold Light by Jenn Ashworth and The Secret Life of Cee Cee Wilkes by Diane Chamberlain.

  1. Sounds like a good reading week for your family, Julie!

    I bet the Larry King book was interesting!

    Your son might also like the Simon Bloom series - my boys loved it on audio on one of our long road trips a few years ago. They also liked The Oracle of Delphi Keep. I often recommend these two series to kids who enjoyed the Gregor series and Septimus Heap.

    Enjoy your books this week!
