Week in Review

       aaa1

Good morning. I hope you had a great week, and if you're in the U.S., a great holiday! We spent the afternoon and evening of the 4th at a local amphitheater, watching the NC Symphony and then fireworks. It was a lot of fun, although very hot since we were out in the sun for hours. Then we went to a great pool party on the 5th. It was a nice long weekend.

Reviews and Posts
Last week, I put together my June Month in Review post. I actually managed to do it within the first few days of the month!

I also published a review of Honolulu by Alan Brennert, a wonderful historical fiction novel.

This week, I have two reviews and a giveaway planned, so be sure to check back or follow me on Facebook to keep up with my posts!

Reading
I finished reading One Plus One: A Novel by Jojo Moyes, and I really enjoyed it. I hadn't read anything by her before.

Now I'm reading Identity Crisis, a very suspenseful detective novel by Jean Hackensmith. It's one of those books where I want to jump ahead to the end to see what the heck is really going on! But I'm trying hard not to do that!!

I may read Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline next. That's my July book club selection. I can't make it to the meeting this month, but I'd still like to read the book since I've heard good things about it.

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. I loved Moloka'i. That's why I bought Honolulu! Hmmm, maybe I should check out Palisades Park now...

  6. Identity crisis sounds like a book that will fit our reading theme with the picture of the dogtag there. :) Thanks for sharing these titles. Have a great reading week!

    1. The dog tags are an important part of the story, but honestly it's not really focused on military/war. Still a good book, though! Have a great week!
