It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by! I am very, very excited to announce that I completed **three books** this week! Usually, I'm lucky to finish one! I think I need to read more short books because it feels good to accomplish so much in one week.

I read and reviewed The Journey Home by Michael Baron and Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach. You can click on the titles to see my reviews. I enjoyed both of these books, which was nice!

Also, check out the guest post by Michael Baron, where he shared his thoughts on the meaning of home. I thought it was the perfect topic for Mother's Day weekend.

The other book I read is Life, In Spite of Me by Kristen Jane Anderson. This is for a blog tour that doesn't happen until the week of May 17th, so you'll have to wait until next week for my review. I will say I enjoyed it and I'll be hosting a giveaway when I put up my review on the 17th ~ so be sure to come back next week!

Finally, I published my What My Children Are Reading post again this week.

Currently reading
The Post-War Dream by Mitch Cullin (from my TBR pile)

Up Next
The Last Christian by David Gregory (blog tour May 24-28)
Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky (June book club selection)

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 …
