Week in Review

       aaa1

It's not Monday anymore, but I figured I'd still share a recap of last week. I hope you had a fabulous week, and for all the moms out there, I hope you enjoyed your Mother's Day. I spent most of the day on the couch, coloring with M and reading. It was quite nice, although it would have been nicer to sit by the pool if it hadn't been rainy and cloudy!

Reviews and Blog Posts
Book Review & Giveaway: Ryder: Bird of Prey by Nick Pengelley
Book Club Picks: Contemporary Fiction

Reading
I read and reviewed Ryder: Bird of Prey by Nick Pengelley last week. Then I read The Book of Unknown Americans: A novel by Cristina Henriquez, which is this month's book club selection. I have mixed feelings about this novel so I'm waiting to write my review until after our discussion this week.

Speaking of reviews, I'm way behind, so at some point when I take the time to write, I will have several to share!

M has read the first two Magic Tree House books, and she read Chocolate Fever by Robert Kimmel Smith at school. She said she liked it. C read More Bones: Scary Stories from Around the World by Arielle North Olson and Howard Schwartz, which he picked up at the library. He hasn't read the first book in that series, so we'll have to look for it.

What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. Also check out the younger version of It's Monday!
