Week in Review and High Summer Readathon Recap


       aaa1

Good morning! I hope you've had a great week. I'm actually on vacation today, so this will be a quick post before I head to the beach!

Starting with reading this week, I participated in the High Summer Read-a-Thon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading. I finished reading  The Bookman's Tale: A Novel of Obsession by Charlie Lovett. Then I read 104 pages in The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer. I'm hoping to read more of that on the beach this week!

C read The Mysterious Benedict Society by Trenton Lee Stewart. And M read Happy Birthday, Bad Kitty by Nick Bruel.

I did write one review, as well: Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline.

Now it's time to hit the beach!

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. Oh, we LOVED The Mysterious Benedict Society - listened to it on audio on a summer road trip one year.

    One of my book groups just discussed Orphan Train and I missed it, but I still want to read it. Focused on getting through my Big Books right now, including several for September book groups.

    Enjoy your books and your vacation!
