Week in Review

       aaa1

Good morning. I hope you've enjoyed the last couple of weeks. We've been busy getting back into the routine of school and work, and enjoying a final trip to the pool before it closed for the season.

Reviews and Blog Posts
Since my last update, I wrote a review of After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman. I also wrote a recap of my participation in the 2014 Big Book Summer Challenge. I managed to read four big books (over 400 pages) this summer.

Reading
I never ended up finishing The Bone Seeker by M.J. McGrath. I read about half of it and just could not get into it. It seems to be getting decent reviews, so it's worth considering. I just couldn't connect to the characters or the setting, and wasn't crazy about the writing style.

Once I finally gave up on that one, I started reading The Missing Place by Sophie Littlefield. I'm still reading that one. It's been a slow couple of weeks as far as reading goes!

C has been reading a few of the books in the Swindle series by Gordon Korman. M has been busy reading some of the Rainbow Magic Books by Daisy Meadows.

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!
