It's Monday, so we meet again...


Hello again! How is everyone?

This feels like the longest week ever, which is why it took me a minute to remember what happened during the past few days. I went wedding dress shopping with my sister at the beginning of this week. David had an early dismissal on Monday and a snow day on Tuesday, even though we didn't get that much snow. Then it was a pretty usual couple of days, including a lovely and lazy Saturday. What were you up to this week?

  4. Lost & Found was sweet - I even have a pair of red gumboots thanks to a window display at work :-)

  6. The first book in Alan Bradley's series is on my 'I will read it this year!' type list, so many good things I've heard about these mysteries. I've seen some good reviews about Lost and Found, look forward to your thoughts on it.

  8. I have yet to read the Alan Bradley series, but glad you are enjoying it. Lost and Found looks very promising to me.

    I'm a long-time fan of Stewart O'Nan, especially his earlier books. This new one doesn't appeal to me because I'm not a Great Gatsby fan but I see you read one of his other books also this past week. I recommend Snow Angels, The Night Country, The Good Wife among others.

    2. Pretty much the same as you. An okay book, but definitely not my favorite O'Nan.

  12. I have my first snow day of the school year today, and it's been wonderful so far! An unexpected day at home is always a nice surprise. I may need to jump on the Alan Bradley bandwagon. Everyone seems to enjoy his books a lot.

    1. Wonderful! So many readers seem to enjoy her books, so I hope we both join the fan club. :)

  14. Sometimes the weeks that just seem to pass are some of the best... I think anyway!

    I've heard a fair bit about Liza Palmer and her work but I haven't actually got round to reading any of it. Enjoy all your upcoming reads!

    1. I've heard great things about Liza Palmer as well and then her newest book showed up in my mailbox! I think it was a sign that I should read her work already! :)
