Is this one of those times I can speak something into existence? After a week of strep for the husband and sniffles and coughs for David and me, I think we are done being sick for a while around here. The weekend was a good one, though. Hubby and I got out for a while last night to have some dinner and start our registry for the baby. Today, David and the other kids sang a song in church and my mom and sister accompanied the choir, so the service was quite musical today! After lunch with the family, we have just been taking it easy with some napping and reading. How was your week?

I'm glad to hear that you guys are feeling better. Being sick is the pits :( Year of Wonders is waiting for me at the library and I can't wait to go get it! Have a great week :)ReplyDelete
Thanks, Jennifer. I'm so excited that you will be reading Year of Wonders. I hope you love it!Delete
Ugh strep is just so draining!ReplyDelete

Shelleyrae @ Book'd OUt
Yes, it is! Have a great week, Shelleyrae. :)Delete
Glad to hear that you're all better in your household!ReplyDelete
Seraphina piqued my interest a while back, I've never got round to reading it though. I hope we'll get a review :-)
Thanks, Jade. I will definitely be writing a review of Seraphina. I'm excited to read it.Delete
Glad everyone is feeling better...there's nothing worse than being sick and not being able to get rid of it.ReplyDelete
Have a great week!
~Kristin @ Always With a Book
It's terrible this time of year. I feel like we just pass the same illnesses back and forth!Delete
Have a wonderful week, Kristin!
Glad you are feeling better. How did you like Iscariot? I'm thinking about adding it to my to read list but not sure if I'll enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Thanks, Sarah. Iscariot was a great read. I don't know that I agree with the way Lee explains some of his choices, but she made him incredibly human and very interesting.Delete
It feel so good when you stop being sick, doesn't it? Such a relief.ReplyDelete
I wasn't reading Seraphina because I didn't care for the cover, but people seem to love it, so I'll probably give it a try. Hope you like it!
I'm excited to read it. I've heard such rave reviews. :)Delete
Have a lovely reading week! What Are You Reading This Week @ The Brunette LibrarianReplyDelete
Thanks - you too!Delete
Yay for being done with being sick! I had a cold last week and can only now breathe properly through my nose and it is BLISS!ReplyDelete
You never really appreciate breathing through your nose or sleeping through the night without waking up coughing until you get over being sick! I'm glad you are feeling better. :)Delete
That cover of Seraphina looks great. I'm a new follower. I'll look for your review of Catch 22ReplyDelete
Hooray! I'm so glad you will be following.Delete
Catch 22 is slow going so far, but I'm definitely intrigued.
Oh, I hope you guys stay well! I've heard great things about Seraphina.ReplyDelete
Thanks so much, Jennifer. I'm excited to start reading Seraphina soon!Delete
I wasn't able to get into the book or movie of Catch 22,but I'll look out for your review to see what you think of it. I like the look of Seraphina and the Laura Lamont book. Hope your week is a happy and healthier one! xReplyDelete
I'm plugging along with Catch 22. I've heard that the first 100 pages are the hardest to get through.Delete
Laura Lamont was great. I'm glad I've finally read an Emma Straub book. Have you read her story collection?
Heller's Catch 22 is one that I am yet to read so I look forward to reading what you think about it :D Have a lovely day :DReplyDelete
It's not a speedy read, but it's definitely interesting! I hope your week is going well. :)Delete
