Week in Review - 12/9/12

What went on in my life:
I went back to work, my oldest went back to school, life resumes.  My youngest got his first report card of the year and it made me realize that no matter how different my two boys are, boys will be boys or second graders will be second graders.  I think if I pulled out my oldest's second grade report card it would read identical to my youngest's and I always thought my youngest was the more rambunctious one (and he is) but truthfully both liked to talk and got in trouble for it at that age and neither one could keep still, LOL.  And both love to read and it shows.  I love that.  The big difference, the youngest is really showing leadership ability, the teacher just wishes he could channel it better ;)  We'll work on that one.  It's been an excellent reading week with great books. And Saturday I decorated the house for Christmas, I'm finally feeling the spirit :)

How was your week?

What I read (links take you to my reviews or to Goodreads page):
Thoughtless by S.C. Stephens (review) - finished on Sunday after starting on Saturday night, I pretty much read 400+ pages straight-through on Sunday!
Reached by Ally Condie (library) - Great conclusion, I loved seeing this from all three points of view.
The Last Victim by Karen Robards (library) - Great suspense, loved the NC setting and the suspense/paranormal angle. Look forward to more books in this series.
Girl of Nightmares by Kendare Blake (library) - I loved Anna Dressed in Blood so I have been anxious to read this one. It was a great read and satisfied my Cas, Thomas and Carmel fix.

What I received (links take you to Goodreads page):
Losing It by Cora Carmack - received through Edelweiss, invitation by email from William Morrow, this was on my wishlist so I'm excited to add it to my review queue. Releases in paperback May 28, 2013.
Taking Chances by Molly McAdams - received through Edelweiss, invitation from William Morrow, another one on my wishlist. Releases in paperback April 16, 2013.
Ten Days by Janet Gilsdorf - received from Kelley and Hall book publicity and promotion, released in September 2012, I plan on reviewing in January.

What I'm Reading Now:
Heaven's Fury by Stephen Frey (library) - I have read a bunch of Stephen Frey's books in the past but it's been a few years, so I thought it was time to revisit him.
All-Together Dead by Charlaine Harris, Sookie Stackhouse #7 (audiobook) - I'm enjoying this, about 2/3 of the way through this now.
