It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning to you. Well, my vacation is over and it's back to work today. Bummer. I got a lot of reading done last week, but not much blogging! I didn't even publish my What My Children Are Reading post this weekend. I think that's the first time in months that I skipped it. That's what happens when you don't have Internet access while on vacation. It's hard to write blog posts on a BlackBerry!

I completed The Last Christian by David Gregory. You can click on the title and get to my review. I'm hosting a giveaway for this one as well, and I really loved it, so be sure to check it out and enter the giveaway!

I also completed Skinny is Overrated by Danielle Milano, MD, but I haven't written the review yet. You'll have to wait until later this week for that one.

Upcoming Reviews
The Post-War Dream by Mitch Cullin
Skinny is Overrated by Danielle Milano, MD

Currently Reading
Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky (June book club selection)

I haven't decided what I'm going to read next. I have a couple more books to read for the Spring Reading Thing Challenge and a couple more books to review. So we'll see what I get to next. What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  2. I'm curious about your thoughts on "Skinny Is Overrated," esp. since I agree wth jlshall about the title, but you know how I feel about the book! :( Don't know if you read my review, or waited til you finished yours, but man, I was so disappointed!

  6. I listened to Not My Daughter a few months ago and just remembered I didn't post a review!

    Can't wait to read your review - will you be discussing the book with the author? We discussed a book with her a few years ago - she's amazing. Her process for writing is unlike anything I have heard (in a good way).

    Have a wonderful week, Mari

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 …
