The Sunday Post hosted by the Caffeinated Reader is an opportunity to share with the blogging community what bookish things are happening in our world. So what have I been doing?
Blogging |Clearly, I have not been blogging. My last post was two months ago. Ah, life. And to be honest, regularly consistent posting was never part of my return to the blogging world. Still, I’m happy to say that for the next month, I have two posts per week already scheduled, and I’m banking on hitting like every other Sunday for an update post. So what’s in store for you readers:
Reading |Reviews and more reviews. I have scheduled posts up for Barracoon, Norse Mythology, How Full is Your Bucket, Sweetly, Stalking Jack the Ripper, Daughters of the Witching Hill, The Color of Water, Curious: The Desire to Know and Why Your Future Depends on It, all three books in Jeri Smith-Ready’s Shade series, and The Glittering Court. I have plans to start writing reviews for Girl in Translation and The Wicked + The Divine. Oh, and I just started reading Susan Cain’s Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking.
In other words, I may not have been blogging, but I’ve definitely been reading.
Visiting | And I’ve been playing with my kids and spending time with extended family:
We visited family in Iowa for a bit, then other familial Iowans came to visit us for a bit:
we plan on celebrating the fourth with family and friends, and in August, over 20 members of my family will be staying together in three houses for our family reunion…which lasts for a week. That’s right. A week. Right before the Fall semester begins. I go back to work on the exact same day the last 8 members of my family fly back home.
