Welcome back to another weekly recap. I hope you had a good couple of weeks. I missed my recap last week. Life has been busy as usual. Before I get started, I just have to say that I am so saddened by the bombing at the Boston Marathon. I am from the Boston area and am glad to know my family and friends are safe. But I am heartbroken for everyone who was hurt and their families as well. It's just so hard to imagine this has happened.
Recent Reviews and Other Posts
Last weekend, I posted an interview with Starr Gardinier Reina last weekend. I've been silent otherwise. I have a couple reviews to write so hopefully that will happen this week.
I read The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy. It was a fun continuation of that series!
Now I'm reading Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman for book club.
Up Next for Me
I'm not sure what I'll pick up next, but it will be something from my Spring Reading Thing list.
What C is Reading
C finished the Charlie Bone series so he has now started The Secret Kingdom by Jenny Nimmo, the first book in the Chronicles of the Red King series. This is the follow on to Charlie Bone, I believe. I happened to go to the library without him and picked it out, so I'm glad to see he's already halfway through the first book in just two days!!
M has started reading the first Ivy and Bean book and she's enjoying it. I'm so excited for her that she's at that reading level now. She'll have lots of options for books to read. At school, her guided reading book is about butterflies so we got another butterfly book from the library: Are You a Butterfly? by Judy Allen. What a cute book! And it gives such detail about the science of metamorphosis and the life of a caterpillar and butterfly. I highly recommend if if you're teaching your kids about butterflies, and I'm going to check out the other books in this series as well!
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.
