Welcome back to another weekly recap. I was actually rather active here on the blog last week, but I didn't manage to participate in this meme last Monday. That means today is a two-week recap instead of just one. You would think that would mean I'd have a lot of progress in reading and reviewing to share, but I didn't accomplish quite as much as I had hoped.
I did host book club last week, and that was fun. We had a nice discussion of The Precious One by Marisa de los Santos. I made mimosas and snacks and enjoyed the company of my neighbors.
Blog posts and reviewsbookshelf devoted to my TBR books. There were 51 books on it when I shared the picture, but I've found more books around the house and am up to 57 now...
I wrote two book reviews, both thrillers:
What I'm readingSince I last posted, I finished The Ex by Alafair Burke. I credit the A Winter's Respite Readathon hosted by Michelle at Seasons of Reading for that, although I never did write a recap of the readathon. Now I'm about halfway through The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown, which I will be discussing with my book club this month.
What my kids are readingM, who is in 3rd grade, is about halfway through Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J.K. Rowling.
Carter, who is in 6th grade, is reading The Sorceress by Michael Scott. He is also about halfway through Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon by Steve Sheinkin for his nonfiction novel study at school.
I'm linking up with Book Date for It's Monday! What Are You Reading? as well as Unleashing Readers and Teach Mentor Texts for the children's and YA version of this weekly gathering. What are you reading? Please share in the comments!
