Happy Sunday! How have you all been? Yesterday was the annual Dewey's read-a-thon, and although I didn't sign up to participate I ended up getting a lot of extra reading time in. I even finished two books yesterday which sounds really great even though I had been in the middle of them both. My youngest came home Friday from school not feeling well. Needless to say I got some unexpected extra reading time in while we laid low and worked on getting him feeling better. The only bummer was that he missed his last football game of the season which he wasn't too happy about.
This weekend wrapped up football for both of my boys and last weekend wrapped up softball for my daughter. Softball will practice year round so we aren't completely done by any means but I'm going to enjoy the lull in all of our activities. Time to catch up on some of my favorite shows. The Walking Dead season premiere is tonight!!!! I'm so pumped for it and then later this week Stranger Things. Eek! Not much else new to report since my last reading update. I thought that I was starting to go through a reading slump as I had only finished one book. Then I finished those two yesterday and now I'm feeling like I'm on a roll. How quickly things change!! Here's what I finished since my last update:
All The Secret Places by Anna Carlisle - I've already shared my thoughts on this one but suffice it to say that I enjoyed this second in the series just as much as book one. This author and series have moved on to my must read list. The hardest part is going to be waiting patiently for book three.
Arsenic With Austen by Katherine Bolger Hyde - I picked this one up from the library because I have the 2nd book on this series for review thanks to NetGalley. I adored this one for the most part and will be writing up my thoughts on this one soon. I'm now super excited to move on to the next book and will be doing that very soon.
Beneath The Surface by Sibel Hodge - I just finished this one late last night and I'm stilling mulling over my thoughts on it. It was good but not great.....and that's about all I'm willing to say about it right now. I will be working on writing up my thoughts on this one hopefully later today.
The Killing Floor by Lee Child is my current print read although I haven't yet begun reading it yet. I've been meaning to give this series a try for awhile now so I pulled this one off of my own shelves. I was in the mood for an action type thriller so I hope that this fits the bill! Into The Drowning Deep by Mira Grant will be my next read on my kindle. Her Newsflesh trilogy is some of my all-time favorite books yet I haven't read anything else by her. Time to change that, and the summary for this book is so unique that I just cannot wait to begin! Searching for Sunday by Rachel Held Evans is my current nonfiction read that I've started but only barely. I need to figure out a way to fit in more nonfiction reading as I am constantly adding nonfiction reads to my TBR list. I'm going to try reading three books at a time and see how that works out for me. I'll keep you posted on if this actually works or doesn't but I'm really hoping.
Plans for the day are my usual Sunday plans: laundry, football, and books. I sadly don't have any reviews written up for this week so I need to focus on that. Watching The Walking Dead premiere is a major priority. But like I said, just the usual. LOL! On a kind of exciting note, I've stayed away from NetGalley since the last time that we talked. I'm pretty proud of myself although I have to admit that it is so hard not to just check and see what's been added lately. I've also been doing really great with staying away from book tours. While I have found some amazing books thanks to book tours, the ability to read what I want whenever I want is really helping my reading mojo (NetGalley books aside). Anyways, I'm off to work on some reviews and cheer on my Bears.
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
