We’ve made it through Week One of the summer and it was a doozy, I will tell you what. The Boy had a sleepover on Monday night that turned into a weeklong ordeal that didn’t end until Friday evening. Yes, y’all – it was a Four. Night. Long. Sleepover. Five days, if you count the fact that this young man did not leave until 5:30 PM on Friday. Do you have any idea how many games of UNO that entailed? Seriously, I love that child almost like he was my own, but am I glad that is over! Back to our regular programming, now, please! One good thing that came of our houseguest was that I had a little extra time for reading in the evenings – here’s a glimpse at what my week looked like on the literary front:
Books I read this week:
- The End of Always by Randi Davenport
- The Dirty Girls Social Club by Alisa Valdes
- One Hundred Names by Cecelia Ahern
- Dream with Little Angels by Michael Hiebert
- Close to the Broken Hearted by Michael Hiebert
Book I’m currently reading:
- The Forgotten Seamstress by Liz Trenow
Posts from the week of June 1st:
Upcoming posts for the week of June 9th:
- Review: The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches by Alan Bradley
- Library Love
- …and more!
I’d been looking forward to reading The End of Always for quite a while, and I wasn’t disappointed. Look for my review later this week. The Dirty Girls Social Club has been one of my fave books from years past and I dusted it off for a re-read this week – still just as wonderful as before. Cecelia Ahern is back to the basics with One Hundred Names – none of that fantastical, magical crap that I found so annoying in some of her past novels; this one is reminiscent of her earlier writing. Dream with Little Angels and Close to the Broken Hearted are the first and second novels in a series by Michael Hiebert – pretty good; it’s quite possible I’ll continue to keep up with the following novels in the series. You’ll see a review for one of these coming up on the blog soon, as well. Hope y’all enjoyed this glance at my week – and as always, Happy Reading to you all!
