Good morning. I guess this is actually two weeks in review since I didn't manage to post last week. I have to admit that the Olympics took over all of my reading and blogging time. I got a bit behind! But the games are over and I'm ready to get back into my normal routine again!
Blog Posts and Reviews
I reviewed The Free by Willy Vlautin last week. It's a really interesting contemporary novel that gets you thinking. I highly recommend it so be sure to check out my review.
Tonight is book club. We'll be discussing The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe, which I finally finished. It took me a long time, partly because of the Olympics interfering with reading time, and partly because it was really slow at times. I'll post a review later this week.
Once I got through the book club book, I started Divergent by Veronica Roth. No, I haven't read this one before. I'm fairly certain that I'm one of the only book bloggers who hasn't. I really am not a big YA fan, but I have to say I can't put this book down! I've read about 2/3 of it just over the weekend!!
My son, C, was so excited when the ARC of The Hero's Guide to Being an Outlaw by Christopher Healy arrived in the mail. He read the whole thing and loved it. I haven't let him tell me about it yet, though, because I don't want him to ruin it for me!
My daughter, M, who will turn 7 years old this week (where did the time go???) is reading the first Judy Moody book by Megan McDonald. She is also reading Judy Moody and the Bad Luck Charm at school as her guided reading book this week.
