Week in Review


Hello from the Outer Banks in North Carolina. Last week, I was busy getting ready for vacation, so I didn't get much reading or writing done. And this week, I'm on vacation so I don't plan on spending much time on the computer ~ it's raining at the moment, so I figured I'd hop on and get this post up at least! I hope you've had a good week.

What I'm Reading
I'm still reading The Lake House by Marci Nault, which is turning out to be a great beach read.

Up Next for Me
I'll need to pick up Big Girl Panties by Stephanie Evanovich, which is on tour right now. My review is scheduled for August 8.

What the Kids are Reading
C read The Lemonade War by Jacqueline Davies last week. He really enjoyed this story about a brother and sister.

M is now reading Frog and Toad Are Friends by Arnold Lobel, a classic that she seems to be enjoying.

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.

  2. I don't blame you for ignoring the computer one bit! :)

    The Outer Banks is a place I have wanted to visit for years! Ever since I read Anne Rivers Siddons. Lol.

    Enjoy your trip and your beach reading, The Lake House sounds wonderful!

  3. Outer Banks sounds wonderful! I've been in the same boat - too much packing, etc. to have time for writing but I;m alone this week so hoping to catch up.

    I LOVE Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series but once tried one of her non-Plum books and didn't like it much - will be interested to hear what you think of this one.

    When my boys were little, we loved the Frog and Toad books! "Birds, we have cookies!" lol

    Enjoy your books and your vacation this week - now get off the computer and out to the beach!

  4. Will be looking for your review of Big Girl Panties. It was an ok read for me. It had too much sex and romance for me. :) Not a bad book, though.

    ENJOY your week.

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 …
