Weekly Reading Recap


Hi! Thanks for stopping by today, and welcome to all my new followers! I'm a little late putting this post together, but at least it's still Monday!

Last week was relatively quiet here, but I did put up a big giveaway post. I'm participating in the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop, and I'm giving away a book of your choice by a U.S. author. Be sure to enter before midnight on Thursday.

As far as reading goes, I finished The Manufactured Identity by Heath Sommer. It was very good, and is now on my long list of books to review! I really need to stop reading for a bit and write all these reviews. I'm never going to get caught up!

My son is still reading the Septimus Heap book, Flyte, by Angie Sage. He also picked up The Genius Files: Mission Unstoppable by Dan Gutman, which I read to him quite a while ago. He's now re-reading it himself.

Currently Reading
I'm still reading ec-o-nom-ics: a simple twist on normalcy by Kersten Kelly. It's not a long book but I've been going back and forth between that and other books. I also finally picked up 50 Shades of Grey by E.L. James ... already wondering how to write a review of that since I try to keep my blog family-friendly.

Up Next
I'm still planning to read These Ties by William Bortz next, and then I have The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce for a book tour next week.

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. Isn't it great when your kids are old enough to read on their own and are rediscovering old favorites (and new ones!)? I remember Jamie reading Septimus Heap many years ago.

    So, you are reading 50 Shades of Grey, huh? Not sure if I will read it or not - so much hype! I have heard from people who loved it and from those who said it was poorly written - hard to know what to believe! So maybe I need to read it for myself, too :)

    I am just back from a 3-week vacation and trying to catch up - currently browsing my favorite book blogs instead of reading the 950 e-mails sitting in my Inbox!

    Enjoy your books this week -

  2. I liked 50 Shades - and you can definitely write your feelings and still keep it PG :) Hope you like it, but its a little out there so beware!

  3. My daughter was home for the weekend just beginning 50 Shades. I still have not decided if I will be reading it or not. Hope you have a great week of reading.
