So this weekend, I've been completely wrapped up in Children of God, the sequel to The Sparrow by Mary Doria Russell. I'm already having that same feeling I had with the first book, that feeling that something awful is going to happen. It makes for quick, breathless reading, I tell you. And now and then I have to stop just to ease the tension.
But more on that in it's own post sometime this week as we hit the half way mark with the read along.
Overall it's been a good reading week. I finished three books this past week that I need to review soon:
Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr
A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner
and Mistwood by Leah Cypess
This week my plan is to start Bleak House for that read along, and get through the first assignment at least. Also, I've made a small start on The Eternal Ones, an ARC I got awhile back which I thought didn't come out quite yet, but no, it came out last week. So maybe I should read it.
Oh, and then I got Body for Life from the library because my sister is starting to do that plan, and I thought maybe I'd try it too. Ha. I don't have much faith in myself, so I will most likely sabotage it all before it even starts. But we'll see. Anyway, I've read quite a bit of that too.
One month until my book club starts up again! Yay!
A week and a half until Mockingjay! Yay!
School starts for the kids very soon! Yay!
Two weeks until the blogger party! Yay!
A week and a half until I get to see Lion King, the musical! Yay!
Four days and it's my anniversary! Yay!
Two weeks and my oldest turns 21! Yay? Crap.
Wow. Lots to look forward to. What you are looking forward to in the next few weeks?
