It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Another week gone. Wow! Work has been a bit crazy for me, as I think I mentioned last week. But I managed to squeeze in a little reading in the evenings, and even got around to writing a review yesterday, despite the fact that I should have been working!

I finally got around to reviewing The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. And I shared some of the books my kids have been reading.

I read Jacob T. Marley by R. William Bennett this past week. I had to finish it quickly since the galley was about to expire! I loved it. I'll write my review this week ~ I hope!

Currently Reading
I'm still reading The Secret Speech by Tom Rob Smith. It's a good book, but I just haven't had time to read it, especially with having to fit in Jacob T. Marley last week. I will finish it this week!

Up Next
I'm not sure what I'll pick up next. One of the books I'm considering is Shanghai Girls by Lisa See, so that may be the one I choose. We'll see how I feel when I finish The Secret Speech.

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.

  5. The Secret Speech sounds really intriguing...can't wait to read your thoughts on it!

    I'm going to be reading Shanghai Girls as soon as I finish the book I am reading now (only 30 pages left!) - it's Kate Emerson's The Secrets of the Tudor Court: By Royal Decree.

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 …
