Happy New Year everyone. I hope everyone had a good holiday season and that Santa was good to everyone.
It was good but extremely busy more so then usually but it was good. Over the holiday Michael took part in a curling tournament and his team came in second place out of seven teams. This teams came from a few places in Quebec and one Ontario team.
As for hockey the team lost in the tournament, Michael didn’t get to play in the deciding game because he had curling.
We did alot of visiting with friends and family and it was so much fun. We are slowly getting back into reality so to speak and Michael is home another week before he starts back to school so it will be nice to chill this week.
I figured since it was the new year that I would take part in It’s Monday! What are you reading? again. I did some of it last year but for some reason I think I got myself overwhelmed and was commiting to reading to many books in a week so this year will be different.
One of my favorite bloggers Sheila from Book Journey is the host of this weekly meme. If you haven’t checked out Sheila’s blog yet then what are you waiting for. I love reading Sheila’s blog because she covers it all and I always end up walking away like I get to know Sheila a little more from her post. Hopefully this year I might actually get to meet her if she goes to NYC (HINT HINT Sheila).
I also just discovered recently that Sheila has partnered with Jen from Teach Mentor Texts and they come up with a fun meme with a kidlit focus – anyone reading and reviewing books in children’s literature – it can be picture books, chapter books, middle grade novels, young adult novels, you name it in the world of kidlit and it’s in!
So in case you are wondering what It’s Monday! What are you reading? is about well its a great way to recap what you read and/or reviewed the previous week and to plan out your reading and reviews for the upcoming week. It’s also a great chance to see what others are reading right now…who knows, you might discover that next “must read” book!
For me I will be keeping this simple and not overwhelming myself like I did the last time. I am going to base this on a Sunday to Sunday week and I am going to be posting my reviews during the current week.
What I read:
I read this one yesterday, Sunday. It was a some what fast read but very heavy and sad. Review will be posted this week.
So this is what I have planned, what about you?

You have been busy! The kids went back to school today here. I’m reading If Jack’s In Love and have no clue what I’ll pick up next.
It’s good to re-evaluate our reading schedules from time to time so as not to become overwhelmed. Enjoy your last week with Micheal at home and your reading!
It sounds like you had a great holiday season Cindy!
Never Eighteen does sound very sad. I will look forward to your review.
