Good morning and Happy New Year! I haven't participated in these memes in a few weeks. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday. Here's what I've been up to since my last update on December 17th!
Recent Reviews and Other Posts
Here are the books I've reviewed over the past few weeks:
Redemption on the River by Loren DeShon
Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls
Santa's Sugar by Jane Gerencher
I also posted an interview with David Sakmyster and my 2012 recap/2013 plan.
And for those who participated in my Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge in 2012, I've posted the recap for that.
What I'm Reading
Since my last recap in December, I've only finished one book: Redemption on the River. That's it. I haven't been reading much in my time off, and I've been trying to get caught up with reviews and updates to my blog. I'm now reading Watering Heaven by Peter Tieryas Liu.
What C is Reading
C finished the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan over the holiday break. Now he's finishing up The Lost Hero, the first book in the Heroes of Olympus series. He is really loving these series and has become very interested in Greek mythology. If you have any suggestions for books about Greek mythology, let me know!
M and I have been reading more of the Rainbow Magic books. She's finally at the point where she can read the words in the books herself, but it's very challenging. So I've continued reading them to her. She just loves all the stories about the two girls, Kirsty and Rachel, helping the fairies with different adventures. Each story has the girls and the fairies trying to find things before Jack Frost's goblins. They're all very cute little adventure stories.
Up Next for Me
Once I finish Watering Heaven, I'll be starting Crossing the Rubicon by R.C. Richter.
