Weekly Update (4/18/215): What I’m Reading and Doing


I’m sleeping, mostly.  In addition to getting a full night’s sleep, I’ve been taking a nap every afternoon.  I’m not going to lie.  It’s fabulous.  I figure that I need to get as much sleep as I can in now because once the baby’s born, my sleeping life will be non-existent. 

Other than sleeping, here’s what I’ve been up to.

New Books! (Stacking the Shelves):

Thank you to Penguin Random House for sending me Better Than Before by Gretchen Robin!  I’m really looking forward to this book.  Thank you to Walden Pond Press for sending me The Vanishing Island and the new paperback edition of The Real Boy.  I now own at least one copy of every edition of The Real Boy.  Is it crazy that I have no intention of giving up any of them?  I gave both of Anne Ursu’s books to my mom for Christmas, but I bought her her own copies.  I’m keeping mine!

Ernest Hemingway is one of those authors that I’ve always been curious about, but didn’t know where to start.  I got The Old Man and the Sea from the library and I have A Moveable Feast on hold.

What I read last week:

I read A Dragon’s Guide to the Care and Feeding of Humans to my kids.  I really enjoyed reading The Art of Work.  It’s a book I would highly recommend to everyone!  It’s definitely worth the read. Crimson Bound was good, but I enjoyed Cruel Beauty more.


As sad as this is, I couldn’t finish Stolen Magic by Gail Carson Levine.  I fully expected to love this book since I’ve enjoyed her other books, but I didn’t.  I got stuck several times and finally gave up about 40% of the way through.

What I’m currently reading:

Atlantis in Peril is also good, but there are some things about it I’m not liking.  Hopefully that changes as I get further into the book.  I just started Illusionarium and am loving it so far!   


What I’m reading next:

I’m really looking forward to reading The Island of Dr. Libris and Finding the Worm.  I don’t know anything about the Kathy Reich series, so I’m a little skeptical of Terminal, but I’m always willing to give a book a chance.
