Where did this week go? I'm sure we did some things. I'm just not sure what they were...We are at the two and half week mark until school starts, so I think we have a lot to fit in during the next few weeks!

What are you reading this week?
Enjoy these last couple of weeks before school starts!ReplyDelete
Thank you! I certainly hope to do that. :)Delete
Enjoy the rest of the holidays and your books!ReplyDelete
The Snow Queen is on my wishlist and Friendship looks like cute chick-lit. Hope you enjoy the last days of summer with the kids!ReplyDelete
The Snow Queen was ok. Cunningham's The Hours is one of my all time favorites and I sometimes wonder if any of his other books will live up to that one!Delete
We start early Sept too- coming up fast! Interrupted and Tigerman both look good. I like the cover of The Snow Queen as well.ReplyDelete
I can't believe summer is almost gone. Are your kids excited or dreading going back to school?Delete
Interrupted was great and I think Tigerman will be good, although I started it and put it back down again. I don't think I was in the right mood to read it!
I love the look of the first two :)ReplyDelete
Thanks! A pretty cover is always a good start for a book, isn't it?Delete
I hate it when Jesus does that...and he is always doing that!ReplyDelete
Here's my It's Monday!
He is always doing that. I guess that means we are paying attention to him!Delete
I've enjoyed a couple of Michael Cunningham's books. Hope to read The Snow Queen soon.ReplyDelete
Which ones were your favorites?Delete
The Hundred year old house is on my wishlist.ReplyDelete
Enjoy your week!
It is such an interesting premise for a story. I hope you have a great week too!Delete
School starts for me next Monday! I plan to relax as hard as I can this week since it is my last vacation week. You can see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Good! I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing week before you get back to the craziness. :)Delete
I need to know ALL the thoughts on The Hundred Year House and The Snow Queen!ReplyDelete
I liked them both, but I didn't love either one. I hate saying that!Delete
How was Interrupted? The title is intriguing.ReplyDelete
It was really good. It really resonated with my life right now and Jen is a great writer!Delete
School starts next week for my sons, and my oldest moves back onto campus this Friday, so super busy here, too!ReplyDelete
Enjoy your books this week!
Book By Book
Oh my goodness, you do have a crazy week! I hope everything goes smoothly. :)Delete
Wow, the cover of Tigerman is swell.ReplyDelete
I'm readying Sea Glass this week, by my favorite fantasy author, Maria V. Snyder and am currently wondering how Opal, the protagonist is going to get out of (yet another) life threatening experience.
I know. It's such a fun cover!Delete
I've never read anything by Snyder. Where should a newbie start??
