I hope you had a great week! I'm a bit late putting up my recap for last week, but I was a day late with an interview I had hoped to publish yesterday, so I decided to wait until evening to put this up. It's been a bit of a crazy evening as our washer, which is on the second floor, broke and we ended up with water dripping from the dining room ceiling below. Ugh! Luckily it seems to be minor damage. Now I'm hoping to spend some time writing book reviews since I'm a bit backed up, but I do have a new book to start as well...
Last week, I didn't manage to write any reviews, but I have now published two author interviews. The first was with thriller author Eric Van Lustbader. The second was with debut author Pamela King Cable.
What I'm Reading
I finished two books last week: Half Broke Horses by Jeannette Walls and The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg. Hopefully I'll manage to write those reviews before the end of the year!! [I need to find a write-a-thon so let me know if you know of one!!]
C is still reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory with his reading group at school. After tomorrow's meeting, they'll be set to read the last few chapters so he'll finally be done. I bought him the (original) movie for Christmas since he hasn't seen it yet. He finished The Lightning Thief and The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan. He's now reading The Titan's Curse.
What M is Reading
M's group is reading The House that Jack's Friends Built by Gare Thompson. It's an interesting book about a boy who enlists his friends' help in building him a house. I thought it would be a treehouse or something small, but they actually build a full-sized house, and then he has his friends live with him. I guess it's not very realistic!! But it's cute and is full of rhymes. M kept pointing out the rhymes on each page.
Up Next for Me
I'm going to start Redemption on the River by Loren DeShon this week.
