Week in Review

       aaa1

It's June! Oh, that means I should be writing my May wrap-up soon, even though I just posted my April wrap-up a few weeks ago! This year is flying by!! I hope you had a nice week. We had a busy week with school stuff and swimming and tennis and dance. It's a crazy time of the year. I'm looking forward to July, which should be a bit calmer.

Reviews and Posts
Last week, I finished The Orphans of Race Point by Patry Francis and put up my review. I also read and reviewed a beautiful picture book, Minnie in Paris by Sheila Sweeny Higginson.

Reading
Now I'm back to reading Insurgent by Veronica Roth, which I had started a while ago but put aside. Next up is my next book club selection, The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion.

I haven't written a kick-off post yet, but I've also decided to join the 2014 Big Book Summer Challenge hosted by Sue at Book By Book. Insurgent counts toward that one, since it's all about reading books that are over 400 pages. I have a few others on my list for the summer that are long, which is unusual for me. So I should be pretty successful at the challenge! I just need to write up my kick-off post!

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. The Big Book Challenge looks so fun. It's always easier to tackle those giant books when you know other people are in the same boat...or reading chair...

    1. Ha! Yes it is! You should join. You only have to read one big book the whole summer!
