Reading
I managed to find a little time to read as well. I finished reading The Precious One: A Novel by Marisa de los Santos. My review will be up tomorrow for the tour. I am now reading Unbecoming: A Novel by Rebecca Scherm.

C read The Long Haul (Diary of a Wimpy Kid, Book 9) by Jeff Kinney. He was happy to finally read this one. M is reading Home: The Chapter Book by Tracey West. We saw the movie on the weekend and loved it, so she wanted to read the book.

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've liked everything that Zevin has written, but I haven't seen this one. Have to see if I can hunt it down. I wonder how many people will be confused about the title of Home. Smekday was a much better title than this generic one!

    1. I hadn't realized it was based on a book until I saw it on the screen. I'd love to read the original at some point.

  2. Good for you getting so much done on your blog!

    I have been hearing good things about The Precious One - de los Santos is a local author! Looking forward to your review.

    Enjoy your books this week!

  3. Sounds like you had a busy and productive week! I haven't read any of those, but they sound good. I'm reading Seabiscuit last week and this week. It may take me a while, but I'm really enjoying it!

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
