Mine go back on September 3rd (big ones) and 4th (little ones) so I have just over a week left. I'm torn between loving having them home and not having to race around like a loon & stick to timetables, and looking forward to them going back to get back in to some semblance of a routine... I can't decide which side of my brain is winning at the moment, all I know is that it's a bit fried.
I'm currently reading book 19, which means... drumroll... I have actually managed to READ A BOOK. Three books, in fact. Are you proud? I am. Considering I am the link host I am shockingly bad at keeping up and you all are putting me to shame.
I've read - and enjoyed - the first three books of The Mortal Instruments series, City of Bones, City of Ashes & City of Glass after a recommendation from the lovely @LadyKirsty1982 on Twitter. I'm currently reading the fourth book, City of Fallen Angels. If you're a fan of the paranormal genre then I highly recommend these books, too.
How are the rest of you getting on?
