Week(s) in Review

       aaa1


It's been a couple of weeks again. I appreciate those of you who stick around with my sporadic blogging!! We've been quite busy here lately. Last time I wrote was the day before Thanksgiving. We had some friends and family over for the holiday and it was a nice time. Then I got sick for a week. That was not a nice time! I have been trying to run every day since Thanksgiving, but I missed three days, mostly because of illness.

I've also been busy with my son's tennis lessons, daughter's dance lessons, son's piano recital, Christmas shopping, work, and myriad other things. Needless to say, my reading update isn't much of an update! I've been reading Who Asked You? by Terry McMillan for two weeks now and can't seem to get past halfway. This is not to say that I'm not enjoying it. Actually, I really like it. I just haven't had a lot of time to read recently.

I did post a review of The Tulip Eaters by Antoinette van Heugten. And I have read a couple children's books that I need to review. I will get those up this week, so I can focus on reading!

I've also signed up for the Christmas Spirit Reading Challenge, so I need to finish Who Asked You? so I can move on to some holiday reads!

C finished reading A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park, and loved it. Now he's reading another Battle of the Books selection: Zora and Me by Victoria Bond. He only has a couple more books left to read before his first Battle meeting in January.

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!

  1. Ha ha - that's funny because I was going to apologize for not visiting your blog much in the past two weeks! Guess we are on the same track. I have also been tied up with illness plus holiday prep.

    Enjoy your books this week, Julie!

  4. Zora and Me looks great. December truly is a busy season. I am so looking forward to my middleschooler's school holidays. She's also been working so hard on so many projects and preparing for quite a number of school performances and basketball game too. So I can totally relate. Have a great reading week!
