It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Can you believe it's already June?! We're almost mid-way through the year. I can't believe it. C has just three weeks left of kindergarten. This school year went by way too fast! Anyway, last week was a pretty productive blogging week for me.

I completed and reviewed Not My Daughter by Barbara Delinsky. I also read and reviewed Freedom's Call by John Walker. You can click on the titles to see my reviews.

I published my What My Children Are Reading this week. I have a few interesting children's picture books that I'll be reviewing over the next few weeks as well.

Finally, I'm hosting a giveaway for a gift card to CSN Stores. It ends on Wednesday, so be sure to check it out and enter to win!

Currently Reading
One Foot in Eden: A Novel by Ron Rash

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 …
