Good morning. I hope you had a great week. My daughter marched in our local Christmas parade on Saturday with her dance school. She had a great time and it was an absolutely perfect day for the parade ~ about 60 degrees and sunny. Last night was my annual book club holiday dinner and book swap. I was thrilled to end up with a copy of Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I can't wait to read it!

This was a week for signing up for challenges! And I am hosting a giveaway of one of my favorite books of 2014.
I finished reading The Maze Runner by James Dashner. It was good but I told my 10 year old I'm not sure he'll want to read it right away. Those creatures in the maze are a bit scary!
I also read Matchless by Gregory Maguire, which was a very short Christmas story based on Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Match Girl. And now I'm reading Fifty Mice by Daniel Pyne. I'm enjoying the story but have struggled a bit with the writing style. Next up is Everything I Never Told You by Celeste Ng.
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!
