Weekly Reading Recap

It was a quiet week at My Book Retreat. We went to Myrtle Beach for Thanksgiving and had a great time. We went to Medieval Times for the first time, and loved it. We had Thanksgiving dinner at a restaurant, but the food was pretty good. It didn't quite feel like Thanksgiving, but it was fun and relaxing!

I obviously didn't publish any reviews, and I didn't have an author interview scheduled for this holiday weekend. I do plan to get back on track with my Sunday author interviews starting next week. As far as reading goes, I'm very close to finishing Father Night by Eric Van Lustbader. Can't say I've technically finished it yet though. That's it.

Currently Reading
Once I finish Father Night (tonight), I'll have to read Half Broke Horses by Jeanette Wall very quickly since my book club meeting is on Thursday night!!!

Up Next
After that, I really want to read The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. I've been wanting to read it and found it on NetGalley! Very excited to finally get to it.

What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

C finished One False Note by Gordon Kormon. That was the second book in the 39 Clues series. We didn't have the next one, so he started reading The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan. He is also still reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl with his reading group at school.

I've been reading some of the Rainbow Magic books to M after getting them from a friend. She is loving these books but isn't quite at the point of reading them herself yet. We read two of the books in the Party Fairies series, which were about two little girls who help the fairies to keep the goblins away from their party bags.

  3. Looks like you have some good stuff coming up! I hope you like Horses, I certainly did.

    Have a great week of reading!

  4. A Thanksgiving vacation? Sounds wonderful! We drove 8 hours each way and spent the weekend going form one family member's house to another! It was wonderful to see everyone but very hectic.

    Half-Broke Horses was great - my entire book group loved it.

    And my boys both loved Riordan's Percy Jackson series - hope C likes it!

    Enjoy your books this week -
