So, if you’re a blogger and you think you’d like to link your own reading posts from time to time, please comment below. (Post at will, no hard and fast commitment.) I rotate my blog posts, so this feature/link-up would only run once every four-five weeks, on Wednesdays, obviously.
I would provide the schedule and set up a mail list to send you a reminder a week in advance. I hope you’ll consider joining me!
My husband is listening to The Art of Work: A Proven Path to Discovering What You Were Meant to Do by Jeff Goins. He’s struggled for years to find his niche, and so far, he’s found the book very helpful. He’s also still wading through my novel, Stay With Me. (Ever seen one of those skeleton-on-a-bench memes? That’s me waiting for my husband to read my book. He’s more of an audiobook kind of guy these days, and I’m still working on getting a narrator for Stay With Me.)
I am reading The Painter’s Daughter by Julie Klassen. This is the third of Julie Klassen’s books that I’ve read, and though historical fiction isn’t my most favorite genre, I enjoy her style and voice. It’s got a Charlotte Bronte-esque quality to it. (I’ll also confess I like the marriage-of-convenience premise.) Something about the cover really draws me in, too.
My 12-year-old son is reading It Happened in the White House: Extraordinary Tales from America’s Most Favorite Home by Kathleen Karr.
Before people walked around with H’s on their clothing there was a different kind of Hollister: The Happy Hollisters. My oldest brother had the entire series by Jerry West, and I read each of them. (Think Brady Bunch meets Nancy Drew.) While both he and I recently bought my 7-year-old daughter used copies, I was happy to discover they are being published again! She’s reading The Happy Hollisters on a River Trip and also Judy Moody: Around the World in 8-1/2 Days by Megan McDonald.
My 2-year-old son and 4-year-old daughter have been requesting a lot of Little Blue Truck Leads the Way by Alice Shertle and Jill McElmurry. My son received the Little Blue Truck book for completing the library summer reading program, and he loves it! The illustrations are lively and fun, and I don’t tire of reading it. They also have been enjoying a lot of From Head to Toe by Eric Carle.
