Weekend Book Report #8

Well by the title of this post and most post lately, one would think all I did was read. Which is kind of true. If you haven't noticed I'm a BIG reader. As my hubby says though he has no idea how I get through so many books, because most of the time he finds me asleep with the book in hand.

As for lately not much has been going on. Was kind of down and out with an infection last week. I think I'm on the mend now. Also it is the start of fall sports. So that means trying to get to as many of middle school football games as possible for The Boy. Also there been a lot of struggle with getting him to go to practice and get homework done. As for the practice we've told him that it's okay if doesn't like it, but he needs to finish the season.

There's been some crafting. I ripped out a whole side of the sweater I knitted. I've re-knitted it to where I was. I got one block done on new wall hanging. And I helped my sister make some kitchen hand towels. Which I think turned out awesome. We also made some potholders. We weren't impressed with them. I'll probably make some like that for myself at home, but they didn't turn out as nice for gifts.

As for books a got a couple finished and started a few more. Again no pics of the books. But there are some in the bookshelf over on the side. I'll leave them up there for a while.

First off I read Kiss the Girls by James Patterson. This is the second book in the Alex Cross series. This is a very popular mystery series. There has been a movie made of this one. In this one Alex's niece has been kidnapped and it has been linked to a serial killers crimes. Alex gets involved and ends up on the hunt for two serial killers on opposite sides of the country. I'd give this a good three stars. I wanted to find out the ending . . . but don't need to add it to my library at home or read it again.

The other book I finished was Prairie Tale by Melissa Gilbert. This is an auto-biography. In her memoir Melissa talks about her childhood and struggles in adulthood. I loved reading this book. Four stars.

Well I hope to be back soon with some more craft stuff. But one never knows what life going to throw at them. Hope everyone is having a good start to fall.
