It's Monday and I'm back!


Hi guys! I missed you. Did you have a fantastic Christmas? Did you read lots of books and eat too many cookies? That is a trick question. There is no such thing as too many cookies at Christmastime. The good thing about not blogging for a week is that I read a ton of books and I am psyched to get back to telling you which books I loved and learning which books you think I should read next. 

What books did you get under the tree? Here is my holiday loot. 


Now I would be remiss if I did not brag here for a short moment. My husband...he is better than yours. I'm sorry to bust your bubble like that, but he did a super wonderful really amazing thing. When I was a little girl, my neighbor got me an autographed Madeleine L'Engle book. Somewhere in the shuffle of changing rooms and going to college, that book was lost. Madeleine is not with us anymore to sign a new book for me. So my awesome husband got me not one, but two signed Madeleine L'Engle novels. And one of them? A limited first edition. Yup. My husband won Christmas. 


End of bragging. Here is what I have read since my last "It's Monday" post:

    1. It's funny how when you are a kid you appreciate the flash and size of a gift, but as a grownup you really just appreciate when someone was paying attention.

      So far, so good on the New Year's front - nothing like starting a new year with pumpkin pancakes. :) I hope you are having a wonderful first day of 2013!

  4. Aww, it sounds like you have the cutest husband ever! My fictional husband is Nathan Fillion and in my head, he's as cute as that. I have no real husband to be disappointed in, lol.

    Glad to hear you had such a wonderful Christmas! Hope your New Years was amazing :)
