Week in Review

       aaa1

It's Monday and I'm blogging! It's amazing. I'm hoping to post a review this week too. Wouldn't that be thrilling?! I'm hosting Thanksgiving, but once dinner is over, we actually don't have a lot of plans on the weekend. Perhaps I'll finally have time to do some writing!

What I'm Reading
I'm reading The Tulip Eaters by Antoinette van Heugten now. It's an interesting murder mystery that's keeping my attention so far. I'm hoping to finish it tonight.

Up Next for Me
Up next, I have a few children's books to review, and then I'll be reading Who Asked You? by Terry McMillan. That's a repeat from last week, since I didn't finish The Tulip Eaters yet.

What C is Reading
C finished Inside Out and Back Again by Thanhha Lai. He was surprised to have enjoyed it, given it was written in verse and was about a Vietnamese girl who had to leave Vietnam when Saigon fell and move to the United States.

He is now starting another Battle of the Books selection: A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Park.

What M is Reading
M has been reading all the different Christmas books we have on our shelves. She's definitely ready for the holidays!!

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. You can also check out the younger version of It's Monday!

  1. I love the cover design for The Tulip Eaters - and the title too - I'm a sucker for "weird (and interesting)" book titles.

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 …
