Parenting with love and logic. Lol, nothing fun. After this, I'll be reading up on homebirth. Just when I thought I'd get to read something fun. ;)

I just finished a couple by Joy Fielding....she was the author of the month in another group. The first was Grand Avenue (good but kind of disturbing), and the other was Heartstopper (pretty good).  Now I am reading...I think it's called A Touch of Dead by Charlaine Harris....it's 5 Sookie Stackhouse short stories.  That will not take long, so next up is Best Friends Forever by Jennifer Weiner, and re-reading The Lost Symbol by Dan Brown.

Right now it seems like I am reading so many different books.  I just finished Love in a Time of Homeschooling, a book on Nikola Tesla, and I am currently reading a boook on Einstein, The ten most beautiful science experiments,  a book by Ashely Judd.  My 4th grader asked to learn physics this year so I am studying up on Physics and reading some really cool books on it.  Physics is so much more interesting that I ever thought it was.  I learning so many things about Thomas Edison and how he was not the good man as I was taught that he was while in school.  Last month my librarian asked me if I homeschooled.  I asked her if it shows.  LOL  Apparently I don't look like a person that would check our 4 adult physics books.

I am reading a Rick Riordan book, Rebel Island.  I love his books for the younger crowd, but this is the first of  his grown up books that I've read, and I'm not sure if I'm as enthralled with it as with The Lightning Thief or others...

I just finished Son of Neptune, the second in another series of his, and I recently read Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper.

Read first two in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series. Reading the first one in the Kane series. Also read Fallen and Vampire Academy. Um the first two books in the Morrganville vampire series. I know there are two mor but cannot think of them, and this was only the last two months or less. I'm a readaholic.
