Spring Break

I'll be taking a couple of weeks off while my kids are on spring break and I take my midterm exams (yes, both those things are happening at the same time - very bad timing!)

I hope you all have a great couple of weeks and happy almost-spring!

My Reading List

I've been in school for almost half a semester now (I can't believe I've got my microbiology lab midterm next week - just about the halfway point!) and I'm loving it, really I am. But there is soooo much reading. Which really isn't so bad because for the most part it's pretty interesting stuff (especially anatomy & physiology.) The problem is, all this textbook reading doesn't leave nearly enough time for what I really want to be reading...

I just finished The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin (I loved it but not quite as much as The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer.)

I'm reading The Franchise Affair by Josephine Tey right now. I saw this book mentioned on another writer's blog last week and it sounded so interesting I had to give it a try. I didn't realize when I reserved it at the library that it was written in 1949. I very rarely read older books, but it's definitely caught my interest right from the start.

Next up: Moonlight Mile by Dennis Lehane (just because I love his writing) and Starters by Lissa Price (which was recommended to me by a dear friend - hi, Sharon!)

How about you? What are you reading now? Do you find yourself getting frustrated by not having enough time to read, or do you make reading a top priority? And do you like to read older books?
