It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning. I hope you had a great weekend. I got a lot accomplished last week ~ reading and blogging. C was still home sick for three days last week, but finally went back to school on Thursday and Friday after being out for eight days. We're all looking forward to some time off together this week to celebrate Thanksgiving.

Last week, I read When No One is Watching by Joseph Hayes. It was a thriller/morality tale that was very interesting. I'll be putting up my review later this week.

I wrote reviews of Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins and The Kitchen House by Kathleen Grissom. I also shared some of the Thanksgiving books my kids and I have been reading.

Finally, I finished up the Birth Year Reading Challenge. That was a fun one!

Currently Reading
I just started reading A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker. I'm also going to start The Christmas Gift by R. William Bennett this week.

Up Next
Next, I plan to read a couple books I'll be reviewing for book tours in December: Hoodoo Sea by Rolf Hitzer and The Active, Creative Child by Stephanie D. Vlahov.

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.

  1. I read your review of Mockingjay and like you I was disappointed with it. Hunger Games is by far my favorite of the trilogy and Mockingjay my least fav. Hope you have a great week and a Happy Thanksgiving!

  3. So glad to hear C was feeling better and able to get to school! Eight days of sick is hard on everyone, including mom. :o)

    I have Mockingjay on my "hope to read" this holiday weekend list.

    Have a fabulous reading week, a Happy Thanksgiving (if it applies ;o) ) and if you have a second take a look at what I’ve been reading at There’s A Book.

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 …
