Hi friends! How are you doing? What are you reading?
I am sitting happily in my living room with a blanket, watching TV with the hubby. We have completed our mandatory "It's the end of the world pre-snow run" to stock up on milk, bread, and rock salt. Now we are just waiting to see what the skies are going to dump on our heads and how many days David gets to take off from school!

Lost and Found

I'm not sure. I was going to pick up some holds from the library tomorrow, but with the giant snowstorm, I may be reading from my bookshelves for the next few days.
What are you reading this week?
I hope you enjoy Lost & Found. I really loved it. It reminded me of Emma Donoghue's Room (which I also loved).ReplyDelete
I'm glad to hear that! It certainly sounds like a unique story.Delete
That sound like a good evening, and also like you are anticipating some bad weather! WE were supposed to get snow ( a bit) but we got sunshine, that was a surprise. Hope you don't get hit too hard.ReplyDelete
Thanks Greg! We are doing ok so far but school has been preemptively cancelled for tomorrow, so we will see what happens!Delete
Snow? Where are you? I have Lost and Found too,I hope it is good!ReplyDelete
New Jersey! It's already snowed a bit and it's supposed to get pretty heavy overnight. :)Delete
Great reads! It is snowing here in Ohio, and I'm just glad we are not supposed to get more than 4-6".ReplyDelete
Have a great week reading!

The snow is pretty as long as you can drive the next day and the power stays on!! :)Delete
Sounds snuggly! I've been dying to read 'The Sun Also Rises' and have somehow never gotten around to it! I am planning to remedy that this year! I'm also reading 'Station Eleven' at the moment and really enjoying it! Thanks for sharing :) Have a great week!ReplyDelete
My Monday post

Station Eleven is just fantastic. I'm so excited to see other readers enjoying it. :)Delete
Good luck getting through the storm - hopefully it just means extra reading time :) I've heard some good things about Lost & Found!ReplyDelete
I hope so. I think we might be able to get some good reading time in tomorrow!Delete
Good luck with the storm. Hope it will give more pleasure than problems. Have been seeing Lost & Found a lot the last week. Hope you will enjoy it.ReplyDelete
Thanks Ciska! I hope so too.Delete
Lost & Found is on my list to read too. Hope you have a good stack of books to keep you occupied for this latest Snowpocalypse. :-)ReplyDelete
Awesome! I hope you get the chance to read it soon.Delete
I don't enjoy Hemingway so I applaud those who can get into him and his tales. Hope you enjoyed them!ReplyDelete
I like all 3 books you talked about last week on your blog and read one and am considering the other two. I haven't gotten to the library recently, but I did go to Barnes and Noble twice and bought paperbacks, and also ordered Amazon ebooks with my Christmas gift cards, so I am set for awhile with good titles.
Stay safe in the snow!
It's my first time reading Hemingway and I have to say that I don't feel like I need to jump right in and read another one...Delete
I keep seeing Lost and Found mentioned here and there on the web, I will have to look out for it and look forward to reading your thoughts if you review it. Hope you're safe in the snow.ReplyDelete
Thanks Lindsay! Everything is fine so far. We will have to see how it goes tonight and tomorrow!Delete
You'll have to let me know how you like Hemingway. I'm reading a YA mystery right now in which he's a central focus, but I've never read any of his actual work.ReplyDelete
I found it ok. I'm not really clamoring to read more of his work though. I'm trying to read more classics and am finding some that I'm sad I missed up to now and some that make me wonder why exactly they are considered classics...Delete
You've been in a Fitzgerald/Hemingway phase! I tend to think of those two together.ReplyDelete
There is a Jazz Age January event going on right now at Books Speak Volumes. I wanted to participate before it ends!Delete
Stay in, warm and safe! IF you're like me, you've got plenty to read on your shelves. I joke I'm prepared for the zombie apocalypse.ReplyDelete
Haha, that is certainly true! I think the milk and bread would run out long before the books!Delete
Lost & Found! Hooray :D I thought that was such a quirky, moving, delight! I hope you're finding the same.ReplyDelete
Have a great week...and stay warm!
I loved Lost and Found so much. I just want to hug everyone in that story for a ridiculously long time!Delete
Glad to see you loved Station Eleven, it's on my wishlist and I have an Amazon gift voucher to spend so I think that will be a pick. Have a great week and happy reading :)ReplyDelete
That would be great use of your voucher! I'm so happy I finally read it. :)Delete
