Here we are, y’all, nearly at the end of May already – can you believe it? Already nearly halfway through 2014 – that’s crazy! There’s so much I’d planned to do this year that I haven’t done yet; I suppose I’d better get my bum in gear. One thing I haven’t been slacking on is reading, that’s for sure. So far this year I have read a total of 106 books. My goal for the year is 150 – I think I’m going to make it! Let’s take a look at how this week went:
Books I read this week:
- Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris
- Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner
- Shotgun Lovesongs by Nickolas Butler
- The Secret of Magic by Deborah Johnson
Book I’m currently reading:

Things slowed waaay down this week when I read around 4 1/2 books compared to the 8 I read last week during the read-a-thon. Not sure how that happened, but c’est la vie! Midnight Crossroad was a bit ho-hum in my opinion, but the other books I read more than made up for that. For starters, I re-read one of my favorite books of all time, Good in Bed by Jennifer Weiner. This is the third time I’ve read it, and it was just as fabulous as ever. I can’t wait to read Weiner’s newest novel, All Fall Down – it’s not due out until June 17th, but I have an ARC so I get to read it before then. Yay, me! Jennifer Weiner rocks. Shotgun Lovesongs was a great tale of the lifelong friendship between four very different men from Wisconsin – I promise it’s much better than it sounds! The Secret of Magic – oh, my. What an amazing novel. Set in 1946, one of the first female lawyers for the NAACP travels to Revere, Mississippi to achieve justice for the death of a returning WWII veteran. What follows is heartbreaking and breathtaking. It would do you good to check out any of these books, y’all. We don’t have big plans for Memorial Day, just a little grilling out with the Pathologically Literate Family in the backyard. How ‘bout y’all? Whatever your plans are, I wish you all a Happy Memorial Day!
