I am really bad at participating in this lately, but I would definitely say it isn't my fault. With summer heading this way, quicker than I can get the cobwebs off the suntan lotion and get the ill fitting clothes out of the suitcase, my family have become the 'lets fill every minute of the weekend until we pass out with exhaustion' type of family. I end up needing the rest of the week to recover.
We had the local carnival yesterday, which involved a 2 and half hour walk around the town. Good for me in helping to get rid of the last few pounds, bad for the children as it just made them tired and grumpy. Community spirit leads the way in June and July in our little area of the world.
My girls were in the carnival representing the sea and I went along for support. I ended up collecting money on the way round and really got into the spirit of things. I am considering a new career as a carnival supporter, as I liked all the attention!
Today is Father's Day, which means I have to pamper my hubby all day long! So not much in the way of reading will be occurring this weekend.
The Once Upon A Time challenge comes to an end today and I am pleased to have read 12 books for this challenge, which you will find listed in my sidebar. I think my favourites would have to be the Spook's books which I hope to continue reading and definitely Valiant by Holly Black. I have really enjoyed taking part in the challenge, but now have quite a few other challenges to finish and a new one just for July, which you will find detailed here.
This week I have finished reading 3 books, and I am half way through 2 others, which is absolutely fabulous for me. They are:
1)The Shop At Blossom Street by Debbie Macomber.
2)Sanction by Jim Magwood
3)High Fidelity by Nick Hornby
4)Voodoo Season by Jewell Parker Rhodes - half way through.
5)The Funny Thing Is by Ellen Degeneres - half way through.
Next week I hope to read the following books.
1)Waiting on Manana by Miranda Innes
2)A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K. Hamilton
3)Wicked Lovely by Melissa Marr - there will be a giveaway with this review.
What have you been reading this week? What books have you got lined up for next week?
