It's Monday! What Are You Reading? --From Picture Books to YA is a weekly meme started by Jen at Teach Mentor Texts and Kellee at Unleashing Readers. This is a chance for bloggers to recap their week of reading and share their plans for the next reading adventures they will take. Visit the host blogs for a list of great blogs participating in this meme and a whole bunch of titles to add to your to-read lists.
This week was another slow reading week for me. I spent some of the week in the hospital and had some life-changing medical news so my mind was not exactly on my reading. I was out of school all week so some of my time was spent creating sub plans, but mostly I mindlessly watched HGTV. I hope that this week I will be able to escape into my books a little more, because I think that is some of what I need.
Books I Finished This Week:
This was actually a pretty perfect book to have with me for the endless waiting in the emergency room. It was not a book that required a lot of attention but was distracting enough to help me feel less nervous. I am not really loving this series that much and my sister feels the same. We are probably going to give up on the goal to finish the whole series. I might skip ahead to some of the more recent books in the series to see if I like them better.
I needed an easy book to distract my mind a little bit in the last few days. The Pretty Little Liars books do not disappoint in being an easy distraction. The books are by no means literature, but I find them really entertaining and I am glad I am reading the series.
I found Love That Dog in the clearance section at Half Price Books this weekend. I sat down and devoured it in one sitting. What a great celebration of poetry and writing! I LOVED this book!
Books I am Currently Reading:
I am still listening to Siege and Storm and just started reading So Cold The River by Michael Kortya, which is a mystery book.
I just hope that I can get myself to pick up a book and read. I am going back to work today and I feel overwhelmed already. I know I will also be reading quite a bit of research and information about medical issues in the next few months as well. I will just play it by ear and pick up what I feel like reading.
