Good evening. Welcome back to my weekly reading update. I actually managed to post a week after my last update so this one will truly be a single week update. We are finally having real Spring weather here in North Carolina. It was up in the 80s today and is supposed to be about that warm for the next two weeks. I doubt we'll have many cold days after this. I planted tomatoes, cucumbers, red and yellow onions, bell peppers and hot peppers this weekend, so the gardens are all ready.
Since last week, I finished Twisted River by Siobhan MacDonald. I hope to review that one this week. I'm also about halfway through The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger, which is my April book club selection. I must admit I'm sick of Holden Caulfield and it's going to be a struggle to finish it, but I'm determined to do so. I may have to put it aside and read Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes, though, because I need something different.
What I'm writingI wrote one review last week:
The Changing Season by Steven Manchester
What my kids are readingM, who is in 3rd grade, finished the first book in The Land of Stories series by Chris Colfer and is now about halfway through the second book.
Carter, who is in 6th grade, has been reading a lot. He read the Mortality Doctrine series by James Dashner. Now he's reading The Lost Heiress, the second book in the Relic Master series by Catherine Fisher.
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!
