Week in Review

       aaa1

Good morning. I hope you've enjoyed the last couple of weeks. We've been busy getting back into the routine of school and work, and enjoying a final trip to the pool before it closed for the season.

Reviews and Blog Posts
Since my last update, I wrote a review of After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman. I also wrote a recap of my participation in the 2014 Big Book Summer Challenge. I managed to read four big books (over 400 pages) this summer.

Reading
I never ended up finishing The Bone Seeker by M.J. McGrath. I read about half of it and just could not get into it. It seems to be getting decent reviews, so it's worth considering. I just couldn't connect to the characters or the setting, and wasn't crazy about the writing style.

Once I finally gave up on that one, I started reading The Missing Place by Sophie Littlefield. I'm still reading that one. It's been a slow couple of weeks as far as reading goes!

C has been reading a few of the books in the Swindle series by Gordon Korman. M has been busy reading some of the Rainbow Magic Books by Daisy Meadows.
