Week in Review

       aaa1

Good morning. I'm here after just one week. It's amazing! I hope you had a nice week. I had a good one. It was nice to have a week where our schedule was normal. Busy, but normal. Then we had an absolutely beautiful weekend. It was 80 degrees and sunny both days. We spent Saturday afternoon doing a local farm tour. We got to visit three farms. Then on Sunday, it was mostly a lazy day at home, with the kids playing with their friends and my husband and I alternating between getting things done and relaxing.

And now we're back to Monday...

Blog Posts and Reviews 
Last week, my blog was pretty active.
Reading
Even though I did the read-a-thon, I only managed to read one book last week: The Metaxy Project by Layton Green. Last night, I started my book club's May book, The Madonnas of Leningrad by Debra Dean.

Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon

I think I'm going to jump into another less-stressful read-a-thon this week. Michelle at Seasons of Reading is hosting the Spring into Horror Read-a-Thon that goes through the whole week. Once I finish the Madonnas book I'll pick up Eyes Closed Tight by Peter Leonard. It's a thriller so it should fit the creepy book requirement of the read-a-thon!

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!

  2. Glad to have you with me again, Julie! That thriller has a great title. Sounds good. You reminded me that I need to answer Layton's email about The Metaxy Project. I've been so busy lately!

    Enjoy the reading this week!

  3. Wow you did have a productive blogging week...and it sounds like a perfect weekend! My wasn't quite so well-balanced but we did have a nice mid-week getaway that helped.

    I really want to try a readathon one of these days. How on earth do you manage it with the kids around? Weekends are especially hectic here. Some day...

    Enjoy your books this week!

    1. I don't manage it very well, honestly. I only read for about 5 hours during the 24 hour read-a-thon. It's not impressive. I expect most book bloggers read that much in one normal weekend day! But it's more than I normally would. For the week-long read-a-thons, I just read every night, which I don't do normally. I also read longer, watch less TV, etc. But almost all of my reading is done after 9pm, when the kids are in bed.
