I hope everyone had a relaxing and fun Thanksgiving weekend! I know I have thoroughly enjoyed my four days without an alarm and with nothing on the schedule. I was able to participate in the Thankfully Reading Weekend, hosted by Jenn’s Bookshelves, Beth Fish Reads, and Devourer of Books. As an extremely low-key event, it fit in perfectly with my weekend of relaxation.
I managed to review three books this week, a definite improvement and one that makes me feel a bit more like an actual book blogger than a “regular” blogger. My favorite book of the week is definitely Erin Blakemore’s The Heroine’s Bookshelf; I find myself still thinking about the lessons to be learned from each heroine. I also shared my thoughts on Charles Brokaw’s The Lucifer Code and Marie Phillips’ Gods Behaving Badly. I waxed poetic on why I am thankful this season and provided an update on my Motivate Me feature. Meanwhile, Connor shared his thoughts on a favorite classic, The Hobbit.
This week, I start back working full-time again. Given the additional time at work and the fact that I will be fitting in my exercise during my now-extended lunch hour, it is going to be a bit of an adjustment, not only to dinner times but also to the time I spend reading during the day. I’m hoping that the adjustment is not as drastic as I fear it could be, but we’ll find out tomorrow.
That’s about it from the Shannon household for this week. I need to go enjoy the last of my vacation, even if it means finally changing out of my pajamas for the day. I hope everyone enjoys their Sunday. Have a great week. Happy reading!
Thanks, Florinda! I hate writing reviews five days a week, but only two reviews was getting embarrassing. We'll see if I can write four reviews this week!
Good luck with the back-to-work thing!
"(It) makes me feel a bit more like an actual book blogger than a "regular" blogger." Been there…I mentioned it in my own TSS post today, actually. There have been times I've felt like a book-blogging pretender, and it's nice NOT to feel that way!

Thanks, Amy! It should be interesting. I am going to miss coming home at 4 PM each afternoon. 6 PM seems so late!
Best of luck with the transition back to full time. I'm sure you will manage to work out a good schedule soon!
