Hello guys and gals! How ya doing?
It's been a good week here. We are of course doing lots of adjusting with an infant in the house, but I think we are all doing admirably considering that some of us are sleeping more than others!
I'm excited to have a lot of new books friends come in to the house this past week or so.
The Memory Keeper's Daughter (from a friend)
The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (from library book sale)
We Were The Mulvaneys (from library book sale)
Sight Reading (for review)
The World's Strongest Librarian (for review)
Also, I have to direct your attention here. I have a giveaway going on through Friday. Don't miss it!

Can you believe I've never read anything by Joyce Carol Oates? I'm excited to read this one!Delete
Have a wonderful week! :)
I missed the announcement somehow - congratulations and welcome to your new baby!ReplyDelete
I hope you have a fabulous week - and get some sleep!
Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out
Thanks so much, Shellyrae! She was born last Friday night, so we are certainly still in the adjustment phase.Delete
Have a great week!
Ah, I missed baby coming whilst I was away! I went through posts though and saw a picture, what a cutie! Congratulations!ReplyDelete
You still seem to be busy with books, even with the extra little one on your hands now!
I look forward to a review on The Ask and the Answer having never read anything by Patrick Ness, but heard great things.
Enjoy your reads this week!
My Book Bubble
Thank you so much, Jade! She's still sleeping quite a bit during the day so I'm finding time to sneak in some reading. :)Delete
Both of the Patrick Ness books I've read so far have been great. I hope you get the chance to read something of his.
The Ask and The ANswer sounds interesting. I hope you enjoy it. Congratulations, by the way!ReplyDelete
Take a look at what I'm reading this week.
It's great! I'm looking forward to reading the last book in the trilogy.Delete
Congrats on the beautiful new addition, she's gorgeous. We are slowly getting to the other side of the sleepless nights as our princess is sleeping most of the night. I do miss those early morning just for Mom cuddles though. Glad you still seem to be keeping up with the reviews and books as its not easy but Mommy needs a little Mommy time to. Enjoy your week.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much. :)Delete
Congrats on your little one sleeping through the night! The early morning cuddles are wonderful though.
Have a great week with your little girl!
Nice new stack of books! They are all good ones! (I haven't read Sight Reading, I hope that one is good too!)ReplyDelete
I've been meaning to get to Tiny Beautiful Things forever, can't wait to hear your thoughts!
I hope you are all adjusting to the new bambino :)
I'm excited to read them. I really needed a whole bunch of new books, right??? :)Delete
Tiny Beautiful Things is really good. You could probably read it a bit at a time while reading another book...or you could be like me and just race through it in a day or two!
The new bambino is doing well. I know that as soon as we think we are adjusted, she will throw us for another loop!
I have Sight Reading on my tbr list. I read and absolutely loved her other book, Russian Winter.ReplyDelete
Your daughter is beautiful and I love her name!
Have a great week!
~Kristin @ Always With a Book
I was thrilled to get it. Russian Winter was such a great read.Delete
Thanks so much! She has two very lovely namesakes. :)
Congratulations on the baby! And good luck on finding the time to still read from one new mom to another. I'm currently reading The Host by Stephenie Meyer.ReplyDelete
Thanks Rose! Congrats on your new little one too and I hope you enjoy your books this week. :)Delete
Great sounding books. Have a fab week! See what I'm reading here.ReplyDelete
Tasha @ A Trillian Books xxx
Thank you Tasha. I hope you have a wonderful week too!Delete
Being a grandma ( I LOVE being a grandma, and bring it up every chance I get...*g*), and mother of four I can attest to how much fun having a baby is. It's exhausting at times, but it's sooooo much fun. I hope you are able to soak in the joy of it. Remember when you're the most tired - to just sit and look at your baby and enjoy. It helps. :) So does calling a granma or aunt or uncle and saying - "HEY! take the baby for a few hours so I can rest, take a nap, watch a show"...whatever. It's my hope that many parents take advantage of other people helping out during those first few exhausting months (or years! lol) Now, done with the semi lecture/encouragement....ReplyDelete
You have some interesting novels listed. I've seen so many interesting books this week on everyone's posts - it's great. In contrast, i finished only one novel. Just one. That's it. But it was a good one. :)
My Reading Week
Have a great week, and enjoy that infant! :)
It is a lot of fun, isn't it? I think one of the good things about being a mama for the second time is that you become much better at asking for help when you need it and reclaiming your kiddo when you want some snuggle time for yourself! Thank you for the encouragement and I hope you have a wonderful week too! :)Delete
Happy reading! Thanks for stopping by :)ReplyDelete
Happy reading to you too!Delete
