Look at me posting two weekly wrap-ups in a row! Its nice to be getting back into the swing of a blogging schedule after about a month of little involvement.
It's hot as hell here in Ontario and I am so thankful for my AC, even if it is just a small window unit. Everything is so beautiful and green now. This is a great time of year to drive down some back country roads and gaze out over the rolling farmers fields.
My parents garden is blooming nicely. I hope to take some pictures of it to share with you throughout the summer. They planted a vegetable garden and we are starting to see sprouts up already. We are all looking forward to fresh, home grown produce.
My Reading Progress:
I made great progress this past week with my reading. It helps that the books I've selected have been really keeping my interest.
As I mentioned last week, my partner and I were listening to this book in audio via the Overdrive app. We both really enjoyed it. I gave it 4/5 and can't wait to read the second book in the series,
Friday night we watched the movie adaptation of The Lightning Thief. We both agreed that the book was much better. There were so many important details that were left out, which was disappointing. However I thought it was an okay movie.
Its been years since I read this series, so it is bringing back memories of my childhood when my teacher read the Little House books aloud to the class. I admit the stories don't have the same impact on me now that they had over 20 years ago, but I'm still enjoying it. I gave it 3/5 rating.
Wednesday: Book Review: Saving CeeCee Honeycutt by Beth Hoffman RATING: 5/5
Friday: Book Review: Days of Grace by Catherine Hall RATING: 3/5
Coming up this week:
Wednesday: Monthly Wrap-up: May 2016

And I can't put it down! Why oh why have I waited so long to read this?!
I hope you have all had a wonderful weekend. Did you do a weekly wrap-up post? If so leave me your links in the comments so I can check them out.
