It's Monday and I'm a bit lethargic

Hey kids. I'm feeling a bit grumpy and lethargic right now. I'm going to chalk it up to someone being sick in my house for the past month or so and just a lot of frustrating stuff going on. I guess the good news is that there is still lots of reading happening in this house. I took the kids to the library this weekend, and current favorites are Mercy Watson and the books of Brian Selznick.

As for me, I read The Gone-Away World and The Bluest Eye. Then I snuck in Nimona on Saturday while I waited for dinner to cook in the crockpot. Yes, I am the last book blogger to read it and yes, I get all the love now.

    The Gone-Away World   The Bluest Eye   Nimona

This week, I participated in Book Blogger Appreciation Week by interviewing Julianne of Outlandish Lit. I reviewed Sara Bareilles' memoir Sounds Like Me and did my weekly check-in of the joys and trials of one Alexander Hamilton.

Now I'm planning to read Ariel Lawhon's Flight of Dreams and Dorothy Must Die.

  4. You are not the last book blogger to read Nimona. I will save that honor for myself because I have absolutely no desire to read graphic novels of any kind. LOL!

  10. Nimona is such a brilliant read - love how the very concept of monstrosity was challenged in a very tongue-in-cheek fashion in the graphic novel.

  12. So you're definitely not the last book blogger to read "Nimona" because I don't even know what that is! Probably means I should ho look it up right now... Hope your week is looking up! :)
