It’s Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I am still here! It’s been a busy month or two. My parents’ 40th anniversary was last month so my sister and I threw a party for them. Then we surprised them the following weekend with a family trip to Tybee Island in Georgia. We had a wonderful time! We drove into Savannah one day and it is gorgeous in the spring time with the azaleas blooming. I got my hands on some of my mom’s old family photo albums for the party so I’ve been working on scanning those pictures before I give them back. My husband has also started a new job and he’s completely off of night shifts. Yay! It’s great to have him home with me every night! We’re working to balance “me time” and “us time” now though.

That said, I haven’t posted since March 1. Holy cow. I did write one review, then I realized the book isn’t published until June. Oops. It’s scheduled but that didn’t help me look like any less of a slacker.

Up Next:

I’ve offered to read the first draft of my friend’s urban fantasy novel and give feedback. I’ve been slacking on that too and need to get it read by Thursday for her. Everything else will be on hold until I finish that! Luckily I’m one of several beta readers and she’s not pressuring us but I still want to get it done. I read the first chapter or so a while ago and I think this is going to be fantastic!

  1. Sounds like you've had a wonderful time with your family. I love Savannah and it is nice to visit in the spring. Usually my family goes in the summer just because my mother is a teacher and that is when it is easier to take vacations.

    I love the audio version of Girl in Translation and I want to listen to the Laini Taylor series on audio. I read the first book when it was published but I haven't read the rest of the series.

  2. You had a busy and very productive March – all those books read AND reviewed – big gold star for you 🙂

    Since Sheila is off-blog right now I will post my Monday link here

  3. I love that you are reading Mississippi Jack by L.A. Meyer! That is one of my favorite series and I get so excited when I see other people reading any of the books!
