It's Monday, so let's talk books and pie

Hello friends. How ya doing?

It's been a busy, good week for us. We did a lot of cleaning and organizing, mostly in the room of a certain eight year old. I made some pies this week - one for a woman from our church who has been sick, and one for us to enjoy. (They're apple, by the way.)


On Friday, D and I went to see a high school production of Shrek. My mom did an amazing job playing a lot of music; she's a wonderful pianist.

          

This week, I read Mr. Splitfoot and it was so very good. I picked up 13 Ways of Looking at a Fat Girl, but it wasn't working for me. I will give it another try at some point. So now I am reading The Golem and the Jinni, which I have been meaning to read for forever!

          Mr. Splitfoot        The Golem and the Jinni (The Golem and the Jinni, #1)

I reviewed Flight of Dreams and The Only Ones, both of which I recommend. I also wrote about February, with all of its sickness and reading.

Next up is Passenger and Addie Zierman's new book Night Driving

           Passenger (Passenger, #1)      

What are you reading this week?

    1. Thanks Kathryn! Yes, it was wonderful. I may or may not have cried a bit about events that happened almost 100 years ago!

    1. The Master and Margarita is one of those books I keep seeing on all sorts of lists, but I haven't read yet. I will keep my eye out for your thoughts!

  6. Mr. Splitfoot has gotten a lot of rave reviews lately, but I can't decide whether it's for me. The pies look delicious!

  9. I've seen Passenger everywhere on book blogs, I don't know much about it, but it certainly seems popular, I hope it's good!

    1. It's a really fun concept. So far, it's about a girl who finds out she has the ability to travel through passages, and go to different times and places.

  10. Mmmm apple! And Shrek! Both fun (except the cleaning...I'm doing that here as well as I combine the littles' bedrooms).

    I was just thinking about The Golem and the Jinni! I need a really immersive book but I'm afraid it's too long for my brain right now. Look forward to hearing what you think!

    1. I hope the room combining goes well! Are the girls excited?

      It was a little long, but it didn't drag for me the way longer books sometimes do. I loved it a lot. :)
