Manic Monday Recaps [Week 8/23/10]

Happy Monday friends! I've had a hectic morning. The kids are back in school here in Miami-Dade County and traffic was a hot mess. My kids weren't very susceptible to the idea after having two weeks off with mommy - so this morning it was tearful, weepy hugs all around. Then it was rushing to work (my first day back) in order to get there on time. But alas, I am safe and sound sitting in front of my computer already back to the daily grind. These past couple of weeks off I planned on getting caught up on my reading and that (as always) was not the case. Instead, I spent my time with the kids giving them a couple of fun-filled weeks. Hopefully, I'll get back on track this week since I am now on the way to my normal routine.

Here's what I plan on reading this week:

Last week I read the following:
- Men and Dogs by Katie Crouch
- It's a Book by Lane Smith
- The Dead Boys by Royce Buckingham
- The Island by Elin Hilderbrand

I reviewed the following:

- Plain Kate by Erin Bow [review]
- Kiss Me Deadly: 13 Tales of Paranormal Love - anthology [review]

Have a great reading week.

Totally unrelated to your topic today, but after viewing your past VLOGS, how fast do you actually read?

I probably have about 70+ books I own that need reading, but I constantly have to put them to the bottom of the TBR pile so that I can read and review for my AURORA site I belong to.

@Chrystal It depends on the size of a book - but if it's anywhere between 200-300 pgs I normally read it in one day. My goal is to read anywhere from 6 to 7 books in a week although lately I've been slacking. I plan on getting back on track now that I'm back on a routine. But yes, like you, I have a ton of books at home ready to review.

Ahhhh! :) Good luck mamita.

So jealous that you got Crescendo!!
I'm probably buying one on preorder, by the Book Depository, along with Runaway by Meg Cabot (paperback, always paperback hehe)

I have to get myself back on track - I used to be able to read two to three books a week, but somehow I am managing maybe one a week sometimes one every two weeks.
