It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. How was your weekend? Here in NC, we got some snow on Saturday evening. It was very exciting, especially for the kids. We had a big snowball fight in the back yard and my husband pulled the kids around on their new sled for a bit. Most of it's gone now, except on our back deck where the sun rarely shines. Hopefully this early snow doesn't mean we're in for a snowy winter!

Last week, I did a lot of reading but didn't do much writing. Sorry about that! Part of the problem is that I started reading some books that I have for book tours later in the month, so I can't put up the reviews yet! I did review some Hanukkah books for kids. Happy Hanukkah to those of you who are celebrating!

I completed Hoodoo Sea by Rolf Hitzer, but you'll have to wait until December 17th for my review! It's an interesting sci-fi novel that kept my attention to the very end.

I'm just about done with Patch by Mucheru Njaga. I have to say I don't generally read young adult books, but this one is excellent! I can't wait to finish it and see how everything turns out. Watch for my review later this week!

Currently Reading
I'm still reading A Note from an Old Acquaintance by Bill Walker. I'm also reading The Active, Creative Child by Stephanie D. Vlahov.

Up Next
I have a couple books to choose from next, so I'm not sure yet which I'll pick up. I guess you'll have to wait until next week to find out!

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.

  3. Wow, you got snow already in NC?? My kids are dying for snow, but it's rare in DE before January. Meanwhile, my family up in Rochester, NY, has had lots already!

    Sounds like you're enjoying some good books lately - you sound excited - I look forward to your reviews.

    Don't you love that feeling of choosing your next book to read? Perusing all the choices and deciding what sounds good? I do!

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 …
