Week in Review

       aaa1


It's Monday again! And it's sleeting again. Yuck! Where is Spring??? My kids had to come home three hours early today because of the possibility of ice on the roads later. Yesterday, it was 70 degrees and sunny, and we spent hours outside walking, biking and playing. Anyway, on to my reading recap...

Middle Grade March Readathon
I decided to participate in a readathon over the weekend. It was a last-minute decision, but I'm glad I did it. There's also a month-long middle grade celebration called Middle Grade March that I'll be joining in. I figure it will give me a good reason to finish off all the books on C's Battle of the Books list. And the actual battle is this month, so it's good timing!

For the readathon, I read Woods Runner by Gary Paulsen and made it about halfway through Zora and Me by Victoria Bond and T.R. Simon.

Blog Posts and Reviews
In addition to posting about Middle Grade March, I also put up a review of The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe.

This week, I will be working on several reviews since I have a bit of a backlog. I will also put up my February month in review post, since I didn't get to that over the weekend.

Reading
I did a lot of reading last week. I finished Divergent by Veronica Roth. I really loved it and will definitely read the next book in the series soon.

I also read Inside Out & Back Again by Thanhha Lai, in addition to Woods Runner, mentioned above.

This week, I plan to finish Zora and Me, and then move on to Greetings from Nowhere by Barbara O'Connor and Tuesdays at the Castle by Jessica Day George.

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!
