I’m still having a hard time to find enough time to myself to read as much as I’d like to, but with my husband finally starting all-day rehab this week, we’re settling down in a new routine and the boys have been reading a lot of books every day so I can’t complain.
– What I’m currently reading
I’m about to finish The Innocent by Harlan Coben, a murder mystery I have to read for my February book club meeting. I’d never read anything by Coben until now but I understand he’s quite famous and prolific in this genre. Although I’m not done with the book yet, I really like it so far. I was concerned about the many characters and how they would all come together since they seemed so disconnected, but Coben is tying things up nicely and I like how he takes time to develop each character. And of course there is a lot of suspense, murders and twists. I definitely want to read more of him and I think I’ll start with Tell No One, which was made into a French movie a couple of years ago.
– What I recently finished reading
Nothing new since I’m finishing up The Innocent this week.
– What I think I’ll read next
The Magician (The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel) by Michael Scott, the sequel to The Alchemyst: The Secrets of the Immortal Nicholas Flamel, which I enjoyed reading a few months ago.
– What they’re currently reading
My two kids start school 30 minutes apart every day, so after I drop off my five-year old, I go back to the car and read books with my three-year old, enjoying some nice, quiet reading time together. His favorite book to read in the car this past week has been Richard Scarry’s What Do People Do All Day.
We’re also enjoying the Cornelius P.Mud series, which we originally read probably two or three years ago:
– Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Bed?
– Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for School?
– Cornelius P. Mud, Are You Ready for Baby?
– What they recently finished reading
We’ve enjoyed reading a couple of books by Doreen Cronin:
– Diary of a Spider
– Diary of a Worm
They’re not as funny as her Click, Clack, Moo book series where farm animals blackmail the farmer to get what they want, but we still like them.
– What I think they’ll read next
I’ve ordered some new books from the library but they’re a little slow to come in. Fortunately we still have plenty of unread books to keep us entertained until then.
What about you? Any books you or your kids are reading you’d like to share?
