The Sunday Salon - September 27


Another busy week - we had FIL over on Wednesday night to celebrate his birthday and then the usual school and kids things along with me having a MRI done on Thursday morning. It's a quiet weekend though with my parents keeping the children, so I have read and sewn and spent time with DH. It's been nice.

I read several great books this week, mainly young adult. Here's what I finished:
  • The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins (library)
  • Beyond the Highland Mist by Karen Marie Moning (audio)
  • The Season by Sarah MacLean (library)
  • Only In Your Dreams by Cecily von Ziegesar
  • Give Up The Ghost by Megan Crewe (1-Arc-Tours)
  • Luv Ya Bunches by Lauren Myracle (review)
All the books I read this week I really enjoyed. I am so glad I tried out the Highlander series by Karen Marie Moning finally - I really liked this one and can't wait to read the next one. I am also anxiously awaiting Catching Fire to see what happens next. I got my gossip girl fix, read a historical young adult novel, a tween book and also a paranormal young adult. It was a very interesting reading week.

I'm currently reading:
  • A Change in Altitude by Anita Shreve (review)
  • Silent Killer by Beverly Barton
  • Dead to the World by Charlaine Harris (audio)
  • The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe (audio I listen to with DS in the van)
Watched:
  • Season premiere of House on Monday
  • Survivor on Thursday
  • 4 episodes from House season 2 Friday night
  • 3 episodes of Friends Season 3 Saturday while sewing
  • 4 episodes of Project Runway, the current season, I had to catch up, while sewing
That's pretty much it for my week. I've been organizing books and rethinking my tbr piles. I'm a planner but I never seem to follow through - I'm working on that though.

Hi-thanks for visiting my blog
-I just finished a young adult book I loved and was totally moved by-"Milkweed" by Jerry Spinelli-I also really liked "The Book Thief" and "I am the Messenger"-both young adult books by Markus Zusak-I have found the best of the young adult books to be very well written and the books themselves tend to have higher production values, something that matters to me. I like your blog a log and am now following it
