Reading recap

It's been a week since I last posted, and while I'd like to spend time reading right now, I thought I'd post a quick update.

I've been busy reading for the Winter's Respite Readathon. It's halfway over now. I finished the second half of Hidden Figures, and then went to the movie on Friday night with my entire family. It was wonderful and I'm glad I shared the story with my kids. The book gets into so much more detail (as usual) but is a little slow. It's still highly recommended. But also see the movie!


I'm now about halfway through No Man's Land by Simon Tolkien. That's what I'm looking forward to getting back to tonight!


At some point this week, I'm going to make time to write a review of a book or two, since I haven't posted a review in a while. I think I'm going to try out a new format this year. I'm going to continue to write detailed reviews of books provided to me for review, but some of the other books I read for pleasure may feature shorter reviews so I can keep up with them this year!

What are you reading?

Book links in this post are Amazon Affiliate links. It's been a while but I'm finally linking up with Book Date for It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

  2. Good idea on the shorter reviews! I may try to do more mini reviews this year, too! I've been hearing so much about Hidden Figures, but I think I'd rather see the movie.
