Week in Review

       aaa1

Good morning. I hope you had a great week. My husband and I celebrated our 16th anniversary this weekend with dinner out at a fancy restaurant, a show (Pippin) and a kid-free night in a local resort hotel. It was wonderful! Then we spent some family time at our neighborhood pool yesterday. It was perfect weather for it. I'm so excited summer is almost here!

Book Club Picks: 18th & 19th Century Historical Fiction

I am still way behind on reviews, and I didn't get much reading done last week either. I've actually resorted to getting my son to read one of the review books I have for this month and am going to pay him to write a review since I don't know if I can fit it in!! This is why I have stopped accepting more books for review. I need a bit of a break from the commitments.

Reading
I am currently reading At the Water's Edge: A Novel by Sara Gruen. It's good so far, but I just haven't had a lot of time to read. I need to finish it soon before it is archived on NetGalley!!

My kids haven't been reading much this past week. With the end of the school year coming, it's been a bit hectic around here! We got some books from the library but are sending several back this week without reading them. I'm determined to get them back on track this week!

What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. Also check out the younger version of It's Monday!

  1. I hear you! I've been behind in everything, including reading, lately, too (that's why I haven't yet responded to your e-mail - though you are on my list for this week!).

    That's a great idea to enlist your son in writing a review - good for both of you! I have posted reviews written by my son and my young cousins.

    Loving your new book group feature and looking forward to contributing! And. remember the Big Book Summer Challenge starts on Friday!

  2. I hope you are enjoying Water's Edge. I liked Water for Elephants and her writing so I think it should be a good one. I do love that cover. So mysterious and lovely at the same time.
