This week, I read and read and read. I finished two different Sookie Stackhouse novels and started Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti. I also made sure to squeeze in dinner dates with my husband, Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, a baby shower, and packing. After spending so much time with the self-help books, academic textbooks, and lengthy classics, I’m thoroughly enjoying my time with lighter literary fare.
Vacation time!! My mini-vacation from the kids has come to an end. We picked them up from my parents’ house yesterday and will spend the next week traveling across the state of Wisconsin camping, visiting my grandmother, hitting some water parks and summer festivals. It should be a fun time, as is any time away from your regular routine. Of course, I have one entire bag filled with books. With that much highway time awaiting us, it is a great opportunity to make a dent in my TBR pile, or at least finish up some monstrosities that I’ve been avoiding (i.e. Middlemarch by George Eliot). I hope to come back from vacation rested, relaxed and with plenty of book reviews to write!! Happy reading, everyone!
