I seem to be on a mid-week pattern with these weekly updates! Too bad the memes are all on Mondays. Oh well. I've been reading quite a bit lately and got a few reviews up as well.
What I've Reviewed
What the Hell is Going on in My Life? by Lawrence Schwimmer
Into the Crossfire by Cindy McDonald
I'm now reading The Husband's Secret by Liane Moriarty. Actually, I'm just a few pages from finishing that one. We'll be discussing it at book club on Thursday night.
Before The Husband's Secret, I started The Tulip Eaters by Antoinette van Heugten. I had to put it aside so I could finish the other book in time for book club, but now I'm going to go back to it.
Up Next for Me
Up next, I have a few children's books to review, and then I'll be reading Who Asked You? by Terry McMillan.
What C is Reading
C is reading another book from his Battle of the Books list: Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. I actually read some of it with him to try to spark his interest. It's about a little Vietnamese girl who has to leave Saigon during the Vietnam War. What's fascinating is that this book is written in verse. I'm excited that C is being exposed to something like this. There's no way he would have chosen it on his own, but he seems to be enjoying it now.
M has her first guided reading book from school, so she's been reading that each night. It's Snail Hits the Trail by Laura Appleton-Smith, and it's a very cute book about a snail going on an adventure. She also pulled out The Polar Express by Chris Van Allsburg last night. I guess it's time to start reading all of our Christmas books!
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 check out the younger version of It's Monday!
