Week in Review

       aaa1

I hope you had a great week. I certainly did. My family and I went on vacation to Destin, FL, and then visited family in Georgia before returning home. It was a great trip! We spent lots of time in the water at the beach, and now that the kids are older, I got some reading done too!

Reviews and Blog Posts
I wrote a review of Identity Crisis by Jean Hackensmith. I also wrote my July month in review post. I got a lot of reading done in July!

Reading
I read The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer while we were on vacation. Then I started reading The House We Grew Up In by Lisa Jewell, which I found on NetGalley.

Next up is The Beach House by Mary Alice Monroe. That's my August book club selection. I also want to read the second book in The Land of Stories series: The Land of Stories: The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer.

C read The Land of Stories: A Grimm Warning by Chris Colfer. M read Bad Kitty Gets a Bath by Nick Bruel.

  1. Destin is nice, glad you guys had a good time. My daughter loves the Land of Stories books, I've thought about reading them myself. She read us a snippet and my wife and I both thought it sounded like a lot of fun.

    Have a great week.

    1. They are a lot of fun! If she hasn't read them yet, she should also check out the League of Princes series by Christopher Healy.

  3. I want to read Beach House at some point in time. Isn't it so hard to see all the books you want to read, and then eye up the actual time you have to read them!

    1. Absolutely. That's why I love my book club. It makes me read a lot of books that I normally wouldn't get around to.

  6. One of the benefits of kids getting older is the luxury of time to read. :-) I'm glad you and your family had a terrific vacation.
