It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning and Happy Halloween! I've been looking forward to this day since the kids are so excited for trick or treating, but now I'm sick with what I think is the start of a head cold. I'm hoping I feel better tonight but have my doubts. It's also supposed to rain later. It hasn't rained on Halloween in years, so I guess it was bound to happen at some point. Of course, I should be happy we won't be trudging through snow to go trick or treating!

This week, I finished reading The Revisionists by Thomas Mullen. It was a very interesting and thought-provoking novel. I hope to have my review this week.

I also read Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford this week. That was a story of love during the Japanese-American internment in the 1940s. I hope to have time to review it this week as well.


I wrote a review of Beyond the Darkness, book two of the Darkness series by Leonard D. Hilley, II.

And I shared some Eric Carle books my daughter has been reading this week.

Currently Reading
I didn't read anymore of Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell, so I'm still about halfway done with it. I plan to finish it this week since it's due back to the library. I also started Crooked Letter, Crooked Letter by Tom Franklin, which won the poll I put up earlier in the week.

Up Next
Help me decide what to read next. Which should I choose?

  1. I liked Outliers a lot, hope you get back into it.

    I'm reading Alan Hollingworth's The Stranger's Child. Not the easiest book but in some sense quite appealing.

  2. I always loved Eric Carle - I have most of them from my teaching days that I now share with my children.

    I voted so I hope you enjoy your reading 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 …
