It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

2a

It’s Monday! is a weekly meme hosted over at Book Journey that allows bloggers to post a sort of wrap-up of the past week while also looking to the week ahead. Without further ado…

Last Week: I went on vacation! We did a Southern sampler kind of vacation, hopping from Tybee Island to Savannah to Charleston, sampling the sights and tastes of each location. Among my highlights – I went to the beach for the first time EVER, ate at Paula Deen’s restaurant, and climbed to the top of a lighthouse! It was a fun time to get away with my aunt and grandma and a time I’ll never forget!

I don’t understand how some people go on vacation and read. For us, each day was jam-packed, and by the time we got back to the hotel each night, I was too exhausted to do anything but watch HGTV and fall asleep. And even after I got back on Wednesday, it was hard to get back in the groove of things. So I only read two books last week.

Blue Lily, Lily Blue by Maggie Stiefvater The Penguin Book of Witches by Katherine Howe

Here in Lexington, the weather has finally caught up! It’s been cool, rainy, and blustery – my favorite type of weather! It finally feels like fall. Dark, wet evenings, a briskness to the air, and just a sense of possibility. My reading has definitely been reflecting the season. How about yours?

  3. I think there are two kinds of trips. Sometimes you lay around and read and relax, but sometimes there are lots of things to do! Both kinds are great.

    Enjoy your reads this week!
