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.
