This week was all about finishing things up for the school year, being supportive of my kids school projects (while occasionally making a run to Walgreen's, or the grocery store for last minute supplies), and fretting a bit as well. I want my kids to succeed in school, while making them responsible for their actions (they are in high school). It pains me to see one of my kids struggling, but I have done all I can to help. Or have I? That is what the fretting is all about. How does one step aside and let their kid fail? How do we teach about consequences? I hope my kid, and I, will learn something from this experience, however painful.
So I haven't read too much this week. just one book. I have acquired several new books for my Summer reading fun. One more week to go!!!
Read This Week:
I almost can't believe this! I "wished" for this on NetGalley and actually got it! This is only the second time this has happened to me. I just adore Kami Garcia, so I have high hopes for this book.
I couldn't finish Passenger from the library, so I broke down and bought a copy. I like the story so far. Under A Painted Sky is by Stacey Lee. I recently reviewed her latest book, Outrun The Moon, so now I want to check out her other books. Isn't the cover stunning?
Bought For My Kindle:
I can't resist a good sale and this was $1.99 on Kindle. I've heard great things about this book.
From The Library:
I have been on the wait list for these two books for months! Of course, they both come up at the same time. Thankfully, summer vacation is coming so I will have time to read them.
What did you get this week? What are you itching to start reading? Let me know in the comments.
