Weekly Reading Recap

Good evening! I'm a little late writing this since we were on the road today. We spent the weekend in Myrtle Beach, SC, visiting family. I'm very excited to say that I finally got some reading done in 2013! I finished the book I was reading last week, and I read an entire second book. Woohoo!

Recent Reviews and Other Posts
I finished reading Watering Heaven by Peter Tieryas Liu, and I wrote the review too!
I also posted an interview with author Steven Manchester.

The recap linky is still open for the Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge in 2012. If you participated in the challenge, be sure to link up so you can be entered to win an Amazon gift card!

What I'm Reading

In addition to finishing Watering Heaven, I also read Crossing the Rubicon by R.C. Richter. I hope to write the review later this week.

This week is the Winter's Respite Read-a-Thon at Seasons of Reading. It started today but I'll be starting up with it tomorrow.

Up Next for Me
I'll be picking up The Prophet by Ethan Cross next. I'm hoping to get through that and The Forever Year by Lou Aronica this week during the readathon.

What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too. Want to see more children's book reviews? Check out the Children's Bookshelf.

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!

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 …
