It looks like my reading has been picking back up finally! Since last weekend I finished A Circle of Souls (for review) and Pretty in Plaid. Right now I'm working on Shanghai Girls and will probably finish it tonight! I haven't had a whole lot interrupt my reading time this weekend because I've been on-call for work. We generally don't plan much when I'm on call. So far I had to go in at 2:00 am Saturday morning for a few hours but that's it. My husband and I rented Knowing with Nicolas Cage last night. It was scarier than I expected and was good, but I'm not sure how I feel about the way it ended. Sort of strange.

I won my first Goodreads First Reader books, Evil at Heart by Chelsea Cain! Yay!! Hopefully that will arrive soon, though it says I should give it 2-3 weeks. I've also got a young adult book, After by Amy Efaw on the way for review. Also coming up this month are a blog tour for Murder on the Down Low and a review and giveaway (5 copies) of Close Encounters of the Third Grade Kind. What else... I joined a challenge for the 1001 books to read before you die. My pick for this month is The Namesake by Jumpa Lahiri.

I'm still working on fixing up my blog here and there to make it look nicer. Eventually I'll try for a new background or make one (or ask my hubby to!) but for now I'll keep what I have because it's much easier that way! There are a couple of "bookish" or "blogish" issues I wanted to post about, but I guess I'll do that at another time.
