Weekly Reading Recap


Another week of the Olympics, another week of very little reading and writing. But they are finally over and I can finally get back to my regular routine! Yay!

I did manage to write one review for Someone Knows My Name by Lawrence Hill. It's a big one too. One of my favorite books of all time so you definitely need to check out my review! If you like historical fiction, I highly recommend it.

As far as reading goes, I finished Eats, Shoots & Leaves by Lynn Truss. I didn't get much else done. I know I will do a lot more this week though!

My son hasn't been reading much these past few weeks. He's finally told me he doesn't want to read the next book in the series he was reading so I'm off to find something new that will interest him. I think I'm going to stick with standalone books rather than series, as he seems to tire of series very quickly. Maybe something funny and lighthearted. Suggestions for late elementary/early middle grade books?

Currently Reading
I'm now reading A Leprechaun's Lament by Wayne Zurl for a book tour next week.

Up Next
Next, I'll be reading Final Approach by Lyle Prouse for another book tour.

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.
