This morning finds me really tired, as I spent yesterday at a huge scrapbooking show in London, so a bleary eyed welcome to all Sunday Saloners this morning. If you want to know more about Sunday Salon you will find it here.
I am feeling really pleased with myself today, as this week I completed the second one of my reading challenges and we are only a quarter of the way through the year. I have read 25 new authors to me. How fabulous is that. I am not going to list all 25 here, as they are listed on the right hand side of my blog.
I have read some fabulous new authors and there are quite a few I plan to read again. Holly Black and Cassandra Clare might just be my favourite out of them all. I also really enjoyed R.J Anderson who wrote Knife. I have also really enjoyed the Spooks series by Joseph Delaney.
This week I feel my reading has slowed down a bit. I think that is mainly due to the kids being off for Easter and I have spent most of Easter rushing around like a loony in order to keep them entertained. Normal life will resume tomorrow and I might stop feeling so tired.
This week I finished reading the following three books:
Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton
The Spook's Apprentice by Joseph Delaney.
Little House in the Big Woods by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The first two I have already reviewed this week, so if you click on the titles, they will take you to the reviews. Little House in the Big Woods will be reviewed tomorrow.
I am still reading Memoirs of a Geisha by Arthur Golden and Bad Blood by Lorna Sage. I have also started reading the second Spooks book - The Spook's Curse and Holy Fools by Joanne Harris.
I have loads of new books to read, so I hope to start some of them soon.
Have you managed to get a lot of reading done with the children off?
