Yuck. It's been a rough few days. I am hereby decreeing that both children should not be allowed to be sick in the same week. I have now met my quota of cleaning up after sick kids for the year, thank you very much.
On a happier note, I think this should be a really fun week on the blog. I'm participating in a great Top Ten Tuesday and joining in with Trish to record and share A Day In the Life. I'm excited to write about our crazy lives and see what you all are up to during a day!
Read This Week:
By Megan Mayhew Bergman By Barbara Kingsolver

This Week's Reading:

What are you reading this week?
Like the sound of Equal of theSun. Is it set in Iran?ReplyDelete
Yes, in the late 1500s!Delete
I just received Dead Wake on audio. Hope everyone is feeling better!ReplyDelete
I will be interested to see if it works better in print or on audio!Delete
I have "Almost Famous Women" in my library queue and I'm looking forward to reading it!ReplyDelete
I read mine from the library too! Thank heavens for those places. :)Delete
I love the cover on Almost Famous Women - I hope the book lives up to it :-)ReplyDelete
Equal of the Sun looks interesting too.
The cover is a cool one. I really liked that Bergman included a photograph of the women (when there was one) at the beginning of each story. It gave you something to visualize if it was your first time hearing of them.Delete
Sick kids is the worst! (Well, maybe except for a sick, moan-y-groan-y husband!)ReplyDelete
Hope things get better.
Haha. At present, we have one healthy kid, one recovering kid, and one sick husband. All are behaving admirably, though. :)Delete
I'm looking forward to Dead Wake! Hope those kiddos are all better now.ReplyDelete
Me too! I own Devil in The White City, but somehow forgot to read In The Garden of Beasts. My tbr list has let me down!Delete
I hope the kids are better and you don't catch it next. All of your books are new to me. I hope you enjoy the ones on the stack for this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
I hope so too. Thanks Kathy!Delete
Sorry the kids have been sick. Luckily our household has made it through without sickness this year, but allergy season is warming up, so I'm expecting myself and the roommates to at least have some stuffy noses soon. Hope everyone feels better soon and gets to enjoy the nice weather coming up.ReplyDelete
Oh allergy season. Yuck. I am a fellow allergy sufferer, so I feel your pain!Delete
I'll be interested to hear your thoughts on Dead Wake. I love Larson, but wasn't psyched about that one. I saw others who loved it, though.ReplyDelete
I've only read the first chapter so far, but I am definitely interested!Delete
Hope the sickness is gone for good! Equal of the Sun looks intriguing. Have a healthy week! :)ReplyDelete
I've had Equal of the Sun sitting on my shelf for forever and I don't know why it's taken me so long to commit. I'm trying to do better about alternating between new releases and older books.Delete
It looks like you've got some great books lined up next. And I look forward to your fun upcoming posts, especially the day in the life. I love those kinds of posts, because if I'm being honest, I'm kind of a nosy parker. Haha!ReplyDelete
I hope you have a sickness free week this week, the rest of the month in fact!

I love them too! It's so fun to have a little window into other people's lives.Delete
