It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Good Monday morning! Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to check out my GIVEAWAY for a copy of First Daughter by Eric Van Lustbader. We had some friends visiting for the past few days, so I haven't gotten much reading done this week. Usually I read in the evenings after the kids are in bed, but lately I've been socializing instead!

Currently reading:
This Is Where I Leave You by Jonathan Trotter

Reviews written last week:
First Daughter by Eric Van Lustbader *GIVEAWAY Ends Monday, March 1st*

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.
