Week in Review

       aaa1

Good morning. As expected, I did not manage to write any blog posts last week. We spent the last four days in Myrtle Beach, SC, and it was a lot of fun. I did get some reading done. Now that the kids are older, I can actually sit on the beach and read, although I did spend a lot of time in the water too!

Reviews and Posts
I didn't write any reviews, but I did close out my Literary Blog Hop giveaway. Congratulations to Lindsey of Literary Lindsey, who won the two ARCs I was giving away!

Reading
With all my beach reading, I finished my second book for the Big Book Summer Challenge: Honolulu by Alan Brennert. It was a wonderful story of the life of a woman from Korea who goes to Hawai'i at a young age as a picture bride. I'll try to get the review up this week.

I also read The Curtain Call Caper: The Gabby St. Claire Diaries (Volume 1) by Christie Barritt, a fun middle grade mystery.

Now I'm reading One Plus One: A Novel, which I got from NetGalley last 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. You can also check out the younger version of It's Monday!

    1. I'm glad to hear that. I haven't read Me Before You, so I may pick it up if I enjoy this one.

  4. Hi there Julie. Glad to see unfamiliar titles here. Not that familiar with the authors as well, worth checking out!
