It's Monday and life is moving right along!

Last weekend was my birthday/readathon. This was the quiet weekend before my husband and daughter's birthdays/Mother's Day next weekend. I took most of the day on Saturday to go shopping with my mom and sister. Mom and I needed dresses for sister's wedding, and then sister and I got new dresses for the rehearsal dinner. The good news is that this crazy life is apparently not slowing down my reading!

What are you reading this week?


  1. The Bullet looks good. I haven't heard of it, but I am such a cover and title judger! It looks intriguing. But now I just searched for the synopsis, and it sounds like my kind of novel!

    1. Oh me too! I am a sucker for a good title/cover. It was a really good thriller. I think I sped through it in less than 24 hours!

  2. It's a busy time for you! The readathon sounds like a perfect way to celebrate a birthday, lol. (Happy belated!)

    I've heard really good things about My Brilliant Friend. I hope you enjoy it.

    I'm going to start A God in Ruins today. (The companion book to Life after Life by Kate Atkinson)

    1. Thanks Jennifer! I'm excited to hear what you think of God in Ruins. I just wrote a post about books with related characters and plot points, so it's definitely on my mind!

  3. I hope you had a great birthday!!!

  4. Wishful Thinking sounds like a fun read. Enjoy all the exciting family celebrations you have coming up! :)

    1. Thanks Julie! It's going to be a busy few weeks around here.
