I'm back! I was on vacation last week, so didn't get around to publishing my weekly recap. But I'm back now and I got some reading done over the past couple weeks despite the lack of blogging.
I published a review of The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens. I also read and reviewed Finding Marco by Kenneth C. Cancellara. And I finished reading The Middle Place by Kelly Corrigan. You can click on the title for my review of that one as well.
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides ~ This was just chosen as our September book club selection, and I'm hosting. So I figured I'd read it now and pass it along to others in my group. I'm also almost done with the audio version of A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle. I tried to listen to it on my ride to and from the beach, but with two kids in the car with me, I got interrupted too many times to finish it.
I think I'll move on to City of Dreams by William Martin next. I also have a couple non-fiction books on my Summer Reading list that I think I'll try to fit in.
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.
I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate. To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop: I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States. It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository . The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn. Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday! Enter here: a Rafflecopter giveaway Now check out all of the other giveaways you can enter at the links below!
