It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Monday again! Thanks for stopping by! It's been like summer here this weekend. Absolutely beautiful! I hope you had a wonderful weekend, and if you celebrate Easter, I hope you enjoyed the time with your families.

I had a much better reading week. I finally finished up A Hundred Feet Over Hell by Jim Hooper. This was an excellent book so check out my review by clicking on the title. If you know anyone who enjoys war stories, I highly recommend it!

I also published my weekly What My Children Are Reading recap.

And I participated in the Book Blogger Hop at Crazy-for-Books again last week, which brought me up to over 50 followers! How exciting! THANK YOU to all of my followers!! UPDATE: To celebrate my 50+ followers, I've decided to have a giveaway. Click here to enter!!

I'm currently reading The Piano Teacher: A Novel by Janice Y. K. Lee. This is my book club's April selection so I'm glad it finally became available at the library! I'm about halfway done with this one.

Up next:
Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze for a blog tour during the week of April 12th
The Power of Your Child's Imagination for a blog tour ~ posting review on April 21st

  7. Hey everyone! Thanks for coming by!

    Staci, I hope it's a good one. I should be starting it by the end of the week.

    Lydia, That's interesting that you're reading it as well. So far, I'm not liking Claire and her storyline all that much but overall it's flowing well, so we'll see what I think at the end!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

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.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
