Weekly Reading Recap

Good morning. Monday again. Hard to believe. We had a good week. Nothing too exciting happening around here, which is a good thing!

Last week, I wrote a review for The Ruins of Us by Kaija Parssinen, which I really enjoyed. You can click on the link to read my review.

I also finished reading 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans by Karl Pillemer. I'll write up my review this week.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Finding Nouf by Zoe Ferraris, which is my February book club selection.

Up Next
Next, I'm going to start on the Narnia Reading Project. I think I'm going to read The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe first.

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 remember reading and loving the Narnia books when I was little. You other books sound really intriguing, too. I plan on starting my February book club book for this month, Infidel - we meet at the end of the month and I usually like to read the book the week of our meeting so it stays fresh in my mind.

    Have a great week and here's my It's Monday post.

    1. I have Infidel on my shelf. I look forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

  2. So you're planning to read all the Narnia books! Good luck, I hope you have a great time with these old favorites.

    1. Yes, it will be my first time reading them. I'm looking forward to it!

  3. 30 Lessons for Living sounds interesting - I look forward to your review.

    And, of course, the entire Narnia series rocks! We read the whole thing every book, out loud with our sons years ago. Fabulous.

    Enjoy your books this week -


    1. I'm glad to hear you all enjoyed the Narnia series. My son has read a few of them but I've never read them myself. Well, I may have read the first one as a child but I don't remember it at all.

  4. Enjoy your week. I have been considering starting The Keeper... soon.

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 …
