Happy New Year! I hope 2015 is treating you well so far. I have had a wonderful couple of weeks spending time with family and friends, so I have not been here much. But now we are finally back to our regular routine, so I hope to be much more active on My Book Retreat starting this week. I have several reviews to write and would like to write a year-end wrap-up post as well. So I need to carve out some time to write!
Reviews and Blog Posts
The only thing I wrote last week is a post about my First Book of the Year.
I read The Martian: A Novel by Andy Weir last week. I really loved it, although the technical details were a bit much. But I cannot wait to see this as a movie now!
I haven't started another book yet, but I did skim through The Orphans of Race Point by Patry Francis. I read it last May, and am hosting a discussion of the book at the end of this month. So I wanted to reacquaint myself with some of the details that I couldn't remember.
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!
