Week in Review


So two weeks ago, I said, "This is the week. Really. This time I'm going to finally write some reviews!" Yeah, and then I wrote one other post (not a review) since then. I think I'm going to have to throw in the towel and admit that there's no way I'm going to catch up. So, I'm giving up my standard review format that I've been using since 2009!!! And I'm going to do something a little easier. And I'm going to get these reviews written! Really. I am.


What I'm Reading
I finished reading Wool by Hugh Howey. Loved it!! I also read Snow Day by Dan Maurer, and I also loved that one too. Two very different books but both excellent. The Snow Day review will be up on Thursday, since it's part of a tour. The Wool review will be up soon. I think I'll write the reviews for books I have for review first. Wool was one I just read for fun.

Up Next for Me
I'm not sure what I'm going to read next. Probably my next review book: Play Something Dancy by Dee Simon.

What C is Reading
C finished the Harry Potter series. I can't believe he's done with it at the age of 9!! We own all but two of the books. I plan to buy the other two eventually so we have the whole set. I figure someday M and I will read them to. C also read a version of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow that we got in the dollar section of Target. I'm not sure what he's reading now.

What M is Reading
M and I took a break on Charlotte's Web by E.B. White but I really want to get back to it this week. She's been reading some picture books that she got from the school library, but nothing too exciting to talk about this week.

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. I also read Wool trilogy and Snow Day. Both different types of books from my reading norm in a way. I thought Wool started out as a fantastic idea for a story, but my interest kind of slipped further on. Perhaps if the author condensed the three books a bit tighter. Still a good read. Thanks for sharing your reading week.

    1. I can understand your thoughts on Wool. I do think it could have been condensed a bit, but I did love the characters and the overall story. Thanks for stopping by!

  3. That is a REALLY good idea, Julie! To switch to shorter, simpler reviews. Maybe I should consider that, too. Sometimes it seems I will never catch up! I also like an idea I saw on my favorite podcast, Books on the Nightstand. One of the hosts was doing a short-story-a-day challenge for this year. She got behind this summer and just declared "bankruptcy", forgot the missing ones, and just rebooted!

    I can't wait to read Wool - have heard so many good things about it.

    I can't believe C finished the entire Harry Potter series already!

    Enjoy your books this week -
