Wow! It has been a few weeks since I last had the chance to post or share my thoughts on any books with you all. Life happens, it's summer time - that should really tell you all you need to know. LOL! We've been busy and on the go almost nonstop these past couple of months which is the last time I did a post like this. The spring/summer baseball and softball seasons have just recently ended which means life is starting to slow down just a bit. It won't be lasting very long but I for one am fully appreciating a clean house. So much falls to the wayside when you are at a softball tournament every weekend or a game/practice most nights of the week. It makes me tired just thinking about it but we survived and a great time was had by all!
Currently my oldest is in full football swing getting ready for the upcoming season which is exciting as I always look forward to watching him play. My youngest two both have travel tryouts coming up so they are practicing and getting ready for that. We will have a few weeks break and then things will start to pick up again which means I need to appreciate my nights home with no plans as much as possible. I HAVE been reading although of course my reading pace has dropped considerably these past couple of months. I'm still four books ahead on my Goodread's reading challenge so let's count that as a win. I'm not going to even attempt to do a reading update for all of the books I've finished since my last post like this. I do plan on writing up reviews though on all of the books I've finished and haven't yet shared my thoughts on. It is going to take me a bit thought to catch up as I'm probably close to ten books or so behind. I'm going to work on trying to get ahead and get some posts scheduled so that I won't have two week blogging breaks like I have been doing. Let's move on though to the books!
Last book I finished reading was:
I've actually got my thoughts on this one written up so watch for my review on Tuesday of this week. I really enjoyed it!
Big Little Lies by Liane Moriarty is the book I'm mostly turning to at this point. I started this one and was immediately sucked in. I'm not quite at a hundred pages yet but I'm really eager to relax and curl up with this book for some quality reading time soon! The Paris Wedding by Charlotte Nash is a review copy and one that I'm on the fence on. I haven't quite connected with this book yet even though I'm a little over halfway through it. Some parts I enjoy and other parts not as much. I'm trying to decide if I'm going to stick it out and see how it all ends or just move on to something else. Has anyone else read this one? Have an opinion to share on it?
Plans for today include lots of yard work. So many nights at the softball and baseball fields have meant that my yard has suffered. My husband and I plan to really dig into working and getting our yard back into shape. I'm hoping that we also get the chance to grill out for the first time this summer. Sad but true. I also need to work on catch up with my never-ending laundry piles that are beyond ridiculous at this point. Other than that, I'm hoping for a quiet day with some reading time squeezed in. It sure is nice to be back though and chatting with all of you!
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
