It's Monday! What Are You Reading?



What a difference a week makes! Last week, I was here telling you I had read 929 pages the week before. Today, I can only report about 150 pages for the whole week! I didn't finish a single book and I only managed to put up one review.

The review is for a memoir called Before the Last All Clear by Ray Evans, who was evacuated to Wales when he was six years old to escape from the danger of World War II. I'm hosting a giveaway of a copy of this book and it ends tonight ~ so be sure to Enter Now!

Currently Reading
I'm still reading Commune of Women by Suzan Still. I haven't gotten very far, honestly.

Up Next
I plan to move on to The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen next. I also have signed up for two different read-a-thons for next weekend (see my right sidebar for links), so hopefully I'll get through another book or two during those. I also have two books I need to review.

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. When reading that you'd only read 150 pages, I was going to suggest a readathon, but I see you knew about them already.

    I'm doing the 24h readathon. Not sure I'd manage two.

    Have a fun week!

  4. We all have low weeks, sometimes life gets in the way, lol.

    I spent last week rebooting my blog on Wordpress. I hope you will stop by and let me know what you think.

  5. Been there with a bad book week. I'm not one who can put a book aside even if it's a bad one so sometimes when I've got a real snorer it sometimes takes me a couple if weeks to get through it. I hope this week goes better for you!

  6. No worries, Julie, some weeks are just like that! This time of year seems to get especially busy.

    Hope you 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 …
