I started this blog almost 2 months ago in hopes of not only sharing all about literacy, but also to begin doing something I love, writing. So with the start of summer, I am refocused and ready to have you join me on the back porch for lots of literacy fun!
I thought it would be fun to start with What are you reading Wednesdays. On Wednesdays, I will share with you what I am reading and I hope you will share with me as well! I love summer as there is more time for me to read, both on my own and with the girls.
This week I started a new book, The Sunshine Girls by Jane Green. I had quickly grabbed it from a summer beach read shelf at the library about a week ago as we were checking out. The cover looked enticing and I had been looking for a fun read.
Yesterday, Izzie asked if we should return the book as we were heading back to the library and I had to admit that I hadn’t even started reading it yet! She told me that I better start right away and so I did. As I began reading, I was expecting a light, beach read. Instead, I was hit with a story about a woman dying and the fact that her daughters were not around. Not exactly what I had in mind! I will continue to read and see how the story unfolds.
Has that ever happened to you? Have you been expecting a book to take one direction and then it heads in another? I hope that I am in for some surprises and happy story for my quick book grab. So…what are you reading this week? I would love to hear from you! Happy reading!
