It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday and I'm late! Happy Memorial Day, by the way. We spent the morning at the pool and I'm just now getting some time to do a little blogging.

I spent last week busy with Armchair BEA. It was a blast. I put up posts all week long, so go ahead and check them out! I included a post on my favorite books of 2011 so far, and offered some blogging tips on Friday. I also interviewed author Jeanmarie Anaya.

I put up reviews of The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks and The Misadventures of Phillip Isaac Penn. And I reviewed a couple children's books.

Earlier today, I put up my review of Blood Trust by Eric Van Lustbader. I'm offering a giveaway of that book and the two previous books in the series, so be sure to ENTER TODAY!

Currently Reading
I'm currently reading A Game of Character by Craig Robinson. I'll have my review up on June 1st for the book tour, and I'll be offering a giveaway as well!

Up Next
I'm going to finish up A New Prospect by Wayne Zurl next. Then I'm not sure yet what I'll move on 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.

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 …
