Thirteen Reasons Why by Jay Asher
What I did Last Week
I had a pretty decent reading week last week. First up I read The Bookshop On The Corner. This was a pretty good book and most of it I enjoyed, though I did have a couple of issues with it. I’ll be posting a full review of this book in March.
Next up was Water For Elephants and what a wonderful book this was. I was really surprised by this one, especially since I thought it would be something completely different and thus had avoided it up to this point. I’ll be posting a full review of this book in March.
Then lastly I read The Empty Throne. This book wasn’t as good as I had hoped it would be. I’ll be posting a full review of this book in March.
Well, we ended up giving the TV a much deserved break this week. We did watch Ice Age: Collision Course because it was free to watch. I did finally finish up season two of Gilmore Girls as well. For family movie night we ended up watching The Jungle Book, the 2016 live action version. The boy and I had already seen it, but this was the first time hubby got to watch it, we all really enjoyed it.
We didn’t do too much last week. Played a few board games, like Settlers of Catan, Mouse Trap and Connect Four, among a few others. The boys spent a lot of time playing video games, which I can’t fault them for that given that the boy got a 3DS for Christmas and wants to do nothing but play it. I also did a bunch of cooking and canning, mostly stuff involving leftover turkey, but it was kind of nice to get back into doing that again, as I have let my regular baking slip a lot in the last few months.
What I Plan To Do This Week
Well, I have a bunch of possible reads for this week, as I am participating in Bout of Books. I’m not sure which ones I will read, but will likely pick whichever one jumps out at me from the pile. Hoping to get through a number of them this week. No matter what, I will devoting a lot of time to reading this week.
No definite plans this week. I’ll probably watch whatever I feel like on a particular day.
Well, the boy is back at school and hubby goes back to work this week. So I will be enjoying some alone time once again, but also likely devoting a bunch of time to cleaning up the house now that I will have time to work on that.
