Three Weeks in Review

       aaa1

I can't believe I haven't participated in this meme all month! I was tempted to just wait and put up my month in review post next week! April has been a whirlwind for us but it's almost over. And things seem to be settling down. I have done quite a lot of reading, and some reviews as well. So here's a recap of that.

Blog Posts and Reviews 
I started the month with my March Month in Review post. Then I wrote four reviews:

Reading
Since I last wrote, I've read several books: North of Boston, The Girls of Atomic City, The Living Memories Project by Meryl Ain, Arthur M. Fischman, and Stewart Ain, and Ender's Game by Orson Scott Card.

I can't decide what to read next! I'm considering Insurgent by Veronica Roth or Defending Jacob by William Landay. I may spend some time writing reviews (I have four in the backlog) and then move on to my next book.

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. After reading The Wives of Los Alamos, I'm interested in reading the Girls of Atomic City.

  4. I enjoyed Defending Jacob, but I haven't read Insurgent, so can't compare. I think you should just read them both. Hsppy reading this week!

    1. Reading them both is in the plan, just not in one week most likely! :-) Enjoy your week!

  5. So glad to hear from you! I missed your Monday updates. Don;t feel bad about being behind - I JUST posted my March summary last week!

    Was that your first time reading Ender's Game? Did you love it?? I first read it 25 years ago when Ken and I were first dating - he lent it to me and I ended up reading the whole series. We were fated to be together! ;)

    I liked Defending Jacob, though I thought it had been overhyped. Also, just a warning that it's a pretty depressing novel - not too uplifting!

    I liked Insurgent OK but I liked the final book, Allegiant, much more because it finally delves into the background and history oh WHY things are the way they are. It's probably a pretty quick read (I listened to it on audio).

    Enjoy your books this week!

    1. See, I think I need to wait until I have time to read Insurgent and Allegiant together.

      As far as Ender's Game goes, yes it was my first time reading it. I thought it was good but wasn't as enthralled with it as I thought I would be. I'm not sure why...

      I'm going to check out your March summary since I haven't had a chance to do that yet. Have a great week!

    Have a wonderful week.

    1. Thanks! I think that's why I haven't gotten into it yet.
