Yesterday I was blog hopping. It was such a wonderful spring day, why not hop around?! But I digress...
I was visiting and linking up with this week's HipHomeschoolHop and found the Winecup Christian Academy. After hopping around her blog a bit, I found a post about reading 52 books in 52 weeks. I thought 'I read a lot, I could probably do that.' So I visited the 52 Books blog for more details. As my luck would have it, they started January 1st. I'm late. Then again, when am I ever on time for anything? I can still do this!
So with library list and NookColor in hand, I can figure out and share the books I've read so far, and maybe a few that will be for upcoming weeks.
Week 1 and 2 were all about catching up on the Lightning Thief series that the little one and I had started last year. She received the new book in the new series for Christmas and I was dying to read it, so I had to read read read! This series is so good! The little one loves learning about Greek Myths. In fact, one of our favorite books is D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths.
Week 3 – The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan
Week 4 – Roast Mortem by Cleo Coyle
Week 6 – Sew Deadly by Elizabeth Lynn Casey
Week 7 – Truly Madly by Heather Webber
Week 8 – Bookplate Special by Lorna Barrett
Week 9 – Fundraising the Dead by Sheila Connolly
Week 10 – A Woman's Call to Prayer by Elizabeth George
Week 11 – Throw Out 50 Things by Gail Blanke
This week we are obsessed on deciding if we will add chickens to our family. So several books I'm perusing are all about chickens. But I probably won't put all of those down in my little list. My plan this week is this:
Week 12 – The Well Trained Mind by Susan Wise Bauer, as well as possibly finishing up Frankly My Dear, I'm Dead by Livia J. Washburn
For upcoming weeks: I have Ken Follett's Fall of Giants sitting on my shelf to read, right next to The Body in the Ivy and The Body in the Gallery both by Katherine Hall Page.
What are you reading this week? My choice of books seems to be all about mystery! lol I need to throw in some worthwhile books as well. Any suggestions?
