Week in Review


This is the week. Really. This time I'm going to finally write some reviews! I have to do it. I am so behind!! I have been reading a lot but haven't written a thing. Sorry about that!

What I'm Reading
Last week, I read Silver Linings Play Book by Matthew Quick, which is my book club's September selection. Now I'm reading Wool by Hugh Howey. I had read the first part of the book a while ago, but when I was at the airport on Sunday and saw the full book sitting there, I couldn't resist!

Up Next for Me
Next up, I'll be reading a review book, Snow Day by Dan Maurer.

What C is Reading
C finished Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J.K. Rowling. He loved it so I got the next one for him from the library tonight. So he's now reading Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. I held off for a while before letting him read these last few since I've heard they're pretty dark, but he said he wasn't upset by book 5, so we're moving on to 6...

What M is Reading
I've been reading Charlotte's Web by E.B. White to M, and we're both really enjoying it. I also got a couple books for her from the library tonight. She read Chicken Soup with Rice by Maurice Sendak and A Chair for My Mother by Vera B. Williams.

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.

  1. Looking forward to hearing about WOOL! It's supposed to be so good :)

    I also have CHARLOTTE'S WEB waiting for me to reread it. I read it as a kid, but want to appreciate it as an adult (and one who writes). Looking forward to that, too!

    Meanwhile, I'm presently reading THE UNDERNEATH. Stellar writing!

  2. Oh, I've heard such good things about both Wool and Silver Linings Playbook (saw the movie but haven't read the book). Sounds like you're on a streak of excellent reading!

    Glad to hear your son is enjoying the Harry Potter books.

    And I LOVE Charlotte's Web and remember reading it to my boys - just be ready for some tears at the end!

    Just a friendly reminder to wrap-up your Big Book Summer Challenge and add your link to the wrap-up list:
