It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Good morning. I hope you've had a great week. I had so much fun participating in Banned Books Week. Here's a recap of what was happening here to celebrate banned books.
Review: And Tango Makes Three by Justin Richardson and Peter Parnell
Books on the Most Challenged Lists: Surprises
Review: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury

I also managed to put up a review of a book that has not been challenged, but was still quite a good thriller: Revenge: A Travis Mays Novel by Mark Young

I shared the books my kids read last week, and I put up my Month in Review for September.

As far as reading goes, I finished Fahrenheit 451, and started two other books.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Before the Last All Clear by Ray Evans and What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. I don't usually read two books at a time but it just sort of happened this week because What Alice Forgot became available from the library unexpectedly.

Up Next
I'm participating in the Frightful Fall Read-a-Thon this week, so I hope to get a lot of reading done. I plan to finish both of the books I'm currently reading, and then I'm moving on to a couple that fit the frightful theme better: Beyond the Darkness by Leonard D. Hilley II, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs, which I saw on the shelf at Barnes and Noble and couldn't resist buying!

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 have Miss Peregrine's on reserve at the library. Hopefully I will get it in time for Halloween.

  2. I have Miss Penegrine's on my wish list!!

    Have a wonderful week!!


  3. Wow, you had a really good blogging week last week! Not me - I'm behind again!

    I really want to read Mrs. Peregrine's. You did entice me to join a challenge, but I'm not ready to try a read-a-thon yet!

    Enjoy your books this week -

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 …
