Week in Review

       aaa1

It's Monday and I finally got around to writing my weekly update. We had an absolutely beautiful weekend here in NC. It was in the 60s both days. My son and I went for a long walk/run on Sunday, and we were able to spend a lot of time outside. Here's what I managed to do here on the blog.

Reviews and Blog Posts

Month in Review: January
It's My Birthday! Time for a Giveaway!
Book Review: Gooseberry Island by Steven Manchester
Saturday Snapshot: A Cool Tree at Meredith College
Book Review: Gathering Blue by Lois Lowry

Reading
I finished reading Gooseberry Island and then I started reading Night Is the Hunter: A Harlan Donnally Novel by Steven Gore.

C, who is 10, read Messenger by Lois Lowry, and is now reading the last book in the Giver Quartet series, Son.

  1. Ah, good - I was looking for your weekly summary earlier :)

    Sounds like you need to catch up with your son. Very impressed you got your January summary up so quickly - I just realized yesterday that I forgot about that. I still need to sign up for 2015 challenges! Yikes.

    Enjoy your books this week -

    1. Yes, I do need to catch up with my son! He's much faster than me - although I'll use the excuse that I've been busy reading review books. :-) Have a good week!

    1. It was a good one. I hope your weather warms up. Our temps just plummeted. I guess winter is here to stay for a while.

  4. I enjoyed reading your review of Gathering Blue. I read it last fall and then started reading the series all over again. So far I've only finished The Giver. Lois Lowry can really write! I am impressed with how well it endures. I really have to get moving on Messenger.

    1. I need to get moving on Messenger too! My son is about to finish Son, and it's a library book. So I need to read Messenger and Son within the next week!

  5. I loved The Giver trilogy but haven't yet bought a copy of Son. I hope to grab my copy soon.
