Good morning. I hope you had a fabulous week. The sun is shining brightly today and I think it's supposed to get up to about 60, so I'm in a great mood. It also helps that it's a holiday here, so I'm not working today. Instead, I'll be getting together with friends and taking the kids to see Penguins of Madagascar, followed by a trip to the playground to enjoy the weather.
Reviews and Blog Posts
I only wrote a couple things last week because I've been very busy with updates to the blog.
Mini Winter Bloggiesta
Book Review: The Martian by Andy Weir
Bloggiesta is continuing through today since it's a holiday. I've completed most of my list. I just have to write some reviews and put a few on Amazon, then I'll be done. Check my new pages:
Books Read in 2014
I finished reading Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty. I really enjoyed it. Now I'm reading The Shining by Stephen King! Big difference!
C, who is 10, is reading Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry. I'm planning on reading that one when he finishes. We have the next two books in the series on hold at the library.
M, who is almost 8, is still reading Maleficent by Elizabeth Rudnick. She also read Lucy Steps Through the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis, which gave her a taste of Narnia. I think I'll try to convince her to read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe now since she liked the short story.
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!
