Read-a-Thon Update and Mini Challenge: Frightful Sentence


Knitting and Sundries is hosting a mini challenge for the Frightful Fall Read-a-Thon. Here's the challenge:
The challenge is to make a frightful sentence out of book titles. Take a picture post it on your blog, and leave the link in the comments. 

Unfortunately, I can't take a picture since all the books I'm reading, with the exception of one, are ebooks. So instead of taking a picture, I'll just write out the sentence for you. I decided to try to work in all four books I'm planning to read during the read-a-thon:

What Alice forgot before the last all clear [was] Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children beyond the darkness.


I had to add a verb in there since none of the book titles had one that worked in a sentence.

And a quick update on the read-a-thon itself: I've finished What Alice Forgot by Liane Moriarty. I'm hoping to finish the remaining 115 pages in Before the Last All Clear by Ray Evans today. Then I'll move on to my scary-themed books: Beyond the Darkness by Leonard D. Hilley II, and Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs.

By the way, I'm keeping track of my progress over on the right sidebar since I won't be posting frequently as I try to focus on actually reading!

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 …
