Better Late Than Never? 52 Books/52 Weeks

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 - The Sea of Monsters by Rick Riordan also The Titan's Curse by Rick Riordan
Week 2 - The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan as well as The Last Olympian by Rick Riordan

The Sea of Monsters (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 2)     The Titan's Curse (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 3)     The Battle of the Labyrinth (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 4)    The Last Olympian (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 5)

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 5 – Brush with Death and Shooting Gallery by Hailey Lind
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

A Woman's Call to Prayer: Making Your Desire to Pray a Reality (George, Elizabeth (Insp))               Throw Out Fifty Things: Clear the Clutter, Find Your Life

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:

The Well-Trained Mind: A Guide to Classical Education at Home (Third Edition)               Frankly My Dear, I'm Dead

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

Fall of Giants (The Century Trilogy)            The Body in the Ivy: A Faith Fairchild Mystery (Faith Fairchild Mysteries)            The Body in the Gallery: A Faith Fairchild Mystery (Faith Fairchild Mysteries)

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?
