Week in Review

       aaa1

Here we are back for another weekly recap. This week is also Bloggiesta so I'll be spending a lot of time working on some updates to the blog. You can see my full list of to-do items for Bloggiesta here: My Spring Bloggiesta To-Do List. I didn't manage any other posts last week, but hope to catch up with reviews as one of my things to focus on this week.

Reading
I finished reading September Sky by John Heldt, so I plan to write that review this week. Then I started reading The Precious One: A Novel by Marisa de los Santos.

I'm keeping my recap quick this week so I can focus my time on the updates I want to make during Bloggiesta, and on reading. I'm also spending extra time with the family since my kids have a bit of a spring break this week. They'll be in school a couple days, but have the rest of the week off.

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 usually like Marisa de los Santos' novels - she is from Delaware so a local author for us. I'll have to check this one out.

    Enjoy your books this week and the time off!

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 …
