April 2017 TBR Final

Library Books:

  • I, Robot by Issac Asimov. I enjoyed this more than I expected. I might even read the next one in the series.
  • The Martian Chronicles by Ray Bradbury
  • Like Water for Chocolate by Laura Esquirel– Love. Love. Love. I’ve read it twice. Both times I borrowed the book. Someone, please buy me a copy! I love the movie.
  • The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton I admit– I read it, just in time for its 50th anniversary. Wow! I even liked it.
  • As the Crow Flies by Craig Johnson Loved it.

Kindle:

  • Incubation by Laura DiSilverio- Loved it. Must read the rest of series.
  • Bitter Harvest by Wendy Tyson I love the cover on this one.
  • Michelangelo’s Ghost by Gigi Pandian. OMG! (yes, I know that’s a bit old at this point.) I loved this book. It was so much fun. I grew up in love with Indiana Jones, and this book has that archeology element to it. I loved it. This is book 4, now I need to start over with book1.
  • Hunter by Mercedes Lackey- currently reading. I hope to finish soon.

I’ve made nice progress this month. I’ve read 6 books. Not bad. I’ve started two others but I’ll have to finish them in May 😉 Most of reads were related to the Mother-Daughter reading Challenge. It has definitely pushed me into reading books I would normally walk past. That’s a good thing. I’ve discovered new authors I love. I have four weeks left before summer officially arrives for me. Kids get out May 19, I think. I’m trying not to dive into books I’ve already labeled as “summer reads”. That could get difficult.

What was your favorite read?

2017 Goals Check-in April

Happy Spring Break!

I love living near a beach. This weekend was perfect beach weather. Needless to say, I’ve not accomplished much. But that’s okay. I’m spending time with the hubby and wee ones. I am throwing in a little research, but that’s still a secret.

2017

  • Write 200,000 words. No new progress here.
  • Edit 600 pages. I’ve edited 15 pages this week. 282 pages total.
  • Walk 2,600,000 steps. Currently at 474,725. I left my pedometer at home most days. It’s hard to clip it to a swimsuit! Funny story- after returning from the beach I threw on a load of wash. I did not realize that my pedometer was still attached to my pants. Now I no longer have a pedometer. Must alter goal later.
  • Read 80 books.
    I finished reading As the Crow Flies by Craig Johnson. Very good. I need to start at the beginning of the series. I’ve started The Outsiders, which is turning 50 this year!
  • Find the shipwreck at Ft. Morgan. (summer)
  • Complete devotional. I’m a little behind, Spring Break.
  • Deep Cleaning. Nope, Again- Spring Break.
  • Submissions. The rejections are rolling in. I sent out 1 query this week.

How did you do this week?
