Weekly Update (9/1/2014): What I’m Reading Now


My parents came down from Canada to visit me last week.  It was so much fun to see them and show them around.  I only get to see my family once or twice a year, so I was really happy to have them here.  They went home to the frozen north once again, while I am left to sit and swelter in North Carolina. Not that I’m complaining.  I don’t like the cold.  I would take the humidity over the snow any day.

At any rate, my reading has been pretty sparse while they were here, but I managed to get a few books in after they left.  I went on a complete early chapter book binge readathon.  I’m not going to lie; I enjoyed every minute of it!

What I read the last two weeks:

Illusions of Fate was SO good!  I loved it.  A Tale of Light and Shadow was also good.  Once I adjusted my expectations, I really liked the story.  Wonder was amazing.  Just amazing.  Zita the Spacegirl was better than expected and Flora and Ulysses made me laugh out loud until I was crying.  Wild Water Magic, Franny K. Stein, and Roxie and the Hooligans were all fun, short chapter books full of adventure.

What I’m currently reading:

I’m about halfway through the second Janitors book, but I haven’t made much progress on my business book or The Worst Hard Time.  I got distracted with a new project and have been reading a bunch of fun chapter books.

What I plan to read next:

Again, I’ve been distracted and I’ve added more to my pile than I normally would.  There are just so many good books out there!  Hopefully I’ll get them all read.  Wish me luck!

What are you reading?

    I'm looking forward to your thoughts on Janitors 2. I've read the first one.

      So far, I'm liking it more than the first one. I'm not sure why, other than things have already been set up in book one, so book two has more action in it.

    Illusions of Fate is on my list to read. I'm glad to know you liked it. I LOVED Wonder and Zita the Spacegirl is a favorite series by everyone, every age in my house. The Janiors series is awesome. The newest book is in my stash to review in October. You are reading some awesome books!! 🙂

      We have a lot in common! Ha ha. I hope you like Illusions of Fate. It was one of my favorite YA reads of the year.
