This isn't a good start to contributing to the Sunday Salon - week 2 and I am a day late! But, I have a good excuse! We were at the Wisconsin Dells with hubby's new company. We stayed in a waterpark hotel and the kids and I spent the majority of the time in the water. It was a very nice park and hotel, wonderful dinner with the company and great to meet a bunch of folks that he will work with in the coming years. And some of the spouses and kids too! We got back about 8pm last night after 7 plus hours of driving. So there's a nap in today's future! Anyway...on to books!
I finished The Space Between Before and After by Jean Reynolds Page last night after we got home. I enjoyed this character-driven novel much more than I expected. I will be reviewing it later this week. The only other book I finished this week was Killer Heat by Linda Fairstein. It was a fairly slow reading week as I went out a few times in the evenings - with book club and other first of the month meetings.
Oh, we did listen to Frindle by Andrew Clements during the trip to Wisconsin. All of us enjoyed that book! I will ask the kids to help me review it later this week. We started listening to a Focus on the Family dramatization of Anne of Green Gables on the way home. Once we finish that I'm hopeful that my kids will get into reading that series.
What to read next? Sometimes this is such a hard question to answer. Do I want a light, quick read? If so I'll read In Dublins Fair City, my next choice in the Molly Murphy series by Rhys Bowen. Do I want to get an non-fiction books off my to-do list? Then I can either choose Why the Wind Blows by Matthys Levy or Legerdemain by James P. Heaphey. (This is what I should do - just do it and get it over with - I'm sure I'll like them both but something about the non-fiction part scares me! LOL) Or there are so many others to choose - new mystery series to begin, womens friendship books and many others in my tbr pile! Aaagh the choices!
What are you reading this week? Did you read anything last week that I should add to my tbr list?
