I'm taking a break from my blog during the month of July.
At some point last year, I had full intentions of no longer reviewing books if I couldn't involve my children in the reading and reviewing of them. I don't know what happened, but I ended up with a ridiculous stack of books. Thankfully, I finally saw the light of day, and stopped requesting again. I made a goal to be done with everything by July 1st, so I could escape from the internet just a bit during July. I'm exhausted and my head and my eyes hurt from so much reading, but I'm done. Hallelujah! :D (Now you know why so many posts went through today....I had a GOAL to accomplish!) ;)
It should remain quiet around here, unless I've forgotten a commitment, in which case you'll see that pop up.
I'll leave you with a few of my favorite books from the past few months. Despite the HUGE amount of reading I've done, it seems very few of them have made it to my blog.
The Glass Casket by Mccormick Templeman
This book is beautiful, but dark and creepy. Don't judge it by its horrible cover, though! It's so much better than that, and I loved it. It's a retelling of Snow White and Rose Red. Just don't read it at night!
The Riverman by Aaron Starmer
Though I don't recommend it AT ALL for the target age, I think it is an amazing story for adults to read. I was quickly turning the pages, and couldn't figure out what was going on. It's very strange, but thought provoking.
The Boys of Fire and Ash by Meaghan McIsaac
This one has more of a science fiction feel to it than average old YA fiction. It's unique, and another one I loved.
Lord willing, I'll see y'all in August! Have fun! I'm simply preparing for some rest and play now. :D
