Week in Review


Welcome back to another weekly recap. I hope you had a good week. While you read this, I should be in Busch Gardens Williamsburg enjoying Spring Break with my kids! This will be a quick update since I'm typing on Sunday evening while my 6 year old lies next to me trying to fall asleep! I forgot to hit publish, so actually I'm posting this Monday night. Whoops! Hope you had a good day. We spent 8 hours at Busch Gardens and had a great time!

Recent Reviews and Other Posts
I posted a review of The Last Child by John Hart. That's it for posts last week. The basketball games have been taking up too much of my reading time in the evenings!

What I'm Reading
I'm still reading Maphead by Ken Jennings. I also picked up The Hero's Guide to Storming the Castle by Christopher Healy. I needed something light to go with the heavier book about geography!

Up Next for Me
I'm not sure what I'll pick up next. And I'm going to skip the kids' reading update this week since we're on vacation. I'll pick up with that again next week.

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.

  1. I'm reading Forest has a Song debut picture book of poetry from Amy Ludwig Vanderpool and Mr. Limoncello's Library ... I think that is most of the title.

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 …
