Week in Review & FrightFall Readathon Recap

       aaa1

Good evening. I am writing this pretty late in the day because I had it all written up earlier, and then hit some button and it all disappeared!! I have a new computer now and am still getting used to the keyboard. Hopefully this time I'll get through the whole post without deleting it!

Reviews and Blog Posts
Last week, I participated in a readathon, so I never got around to writing any reviews. I now have two books ready to review, so I just have to find time to write the reviews.

Reading
I participated in the FrightFall Readathon last week. It was hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. I finished reading A Dangerous Fiction: A Mystery by Barbara Rogan. Then I read The Killer Next Door by Alex Marwood. That was a great choice for the readathon, which required at least one scary read. Although, it was more gory than scary.

Now I'm going to start reading Palmetto Moon: A Lowcountry Novel by Kim Boykin, which I'm reading for a book tour on Friday.

Kids Reading
The kids spent a lot of time reading Poetry Speaks to Children, which has a great variety of poems that appeal to kids. It includes everything from The Raven by Edgar Allan Poe to poems about teddy bears and mommies.

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!

  2. I read Alex Marwood's The Wicked Girls for the readathon and thought it was a good choice as well, as it wasn't a "too scared to go to bed"read. I have The Killer Next Door on my kindle right now which I've been looking forward to, but will have to go in wary after your gory comment.

    1. Let's just say you'll learn a lot of details about how to preserve dead bodies, and what to do with the insides once you've removed them.... But still a good story with some interesting characters. I definitely want to check out The Wicked Girls now!
