Week in Review

Good morning. I hope you had a nice week. For those of you who participated in the Dewey's 24-hour readathon, I hope you got a lot of reading done. I had signed up but didn't end up having time to read much on Saturday. We went to a couple of the local farms ~ most of the farms around here opened up for tours on the weekend. It was a lot of fun! We got to see where a lot of our food comes from.

Recent Reviews and Other Posts
Last week, I posted a review of The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy. What a fun middle grade series that is!!

What I'm Reading
I still reading All Over But the Shoutin' by Rick Bragg. I'm really enjoying it ~ so glad I finally picked it up off my shelf!

Up Next for Me
Next up will be something from my Spring Reading Thing list.

What C is Reading
C is still just re-reading some of the books in the Percy Jackson and Heroes of Olympus series by Rick Riordan. He's considering moving on to the Kane Chronicles next. We just haven't made it to the library to pick up the first book.

What M is Reading
M finished Ivy and Bean by Annie Barrows and really liked it. I'm sure we'll be continuing that series! Now she has started a new Junie B. Jones book: Junie B. Jones Is Captain Field Day by Barbara Park. I figured this was a good one to read this week since she has her first field day on Thursday. She seems to be enjoying 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. You can also see more children's book reviews at The Children's Bookshelf.


  1. Julie, have you ever read Coraline? I thought it was weird, have no idea how to review it. I should see if you have posted about it.

    1. Sorry to hear that! I have not read it so I can't help you out with the review. I will say, though, that I'm glad to know that you look at other reviews when you're writing your own. I do that sometimes too!

  2. We are reading Ivy and Bean series ourselves and have the Junie B and others on list too! I am reading a classic called The Secret Garden. I found a beautifully illustrated title and cant wait to read it out.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. You know, I've never read The Secret Garden. I should really get a copy and read it aloud to my daughter. I bet she'd enjoy it! Thanks for stopping by!


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
