It's Monday and I have a book nook!

Good morning, boys and girls. How are things in your corner of the world?

I fully intended to do this post last night but after I put the kids to bed, I just sat on my couch and happily vegged out to HGtv instead. But I'm here now and ready to talk books!

First, I have to brag about my husband just a little bit. We have this little bit of space at the end of our upstairs hallway that wasn't doing anything in particular. My husband decided that we needed a book nook (he was totally right, of course). Although my toddler claims that it is "her bed," I have already had some nice reading time here and I am looking forward to many more hours of reading here.



Now for the books I actually read this week! Why We Came To The City was excellent and I'm excited to see that Kristopher Jansma is continuing his streak of great books. The Girl From Everywhere was just ok for me and I have to confess that this is the first time I'm seeing the face on the cover! How did I miss that before?

               Why We Came to the City       The Girl from Everywhere (The Girl from Everywhere, #1)

This week, I actually got some things posted. Feel free to wander over to my reviews of Making It Home, Felicity, and Nimona. I also did my March wrap-up post.

Now I'm reading Undetected by Dee Henderson, although I might put it aside for a while to read Version Control first. We will have to see how the week goes!

  3. A book nook! I'm so jealous! I live in a teeny-tiny apartment, so pretty much every space is allocated, so my book nook is pretty much any free space that isn't being used for something else. ;) Enjoy it!

    1. If we are using that definition, then I suspect I have several book nooks around the house. :)

  4. Ooh I'm so envious! I keep saying to my husband we need to do something about our front room and maybe a reading nook is what it needs

  7. I LOVE the nook! Adorable! And so glad to hear you loved Why We Came to the City. It looks like I'm between that one and Jane Steele for my first go once I'm done with Shelter.

  9. I love your book nook! It looks like a very comfortable and inviting place to read. And I am a serious HGTV watcher - if it were a sport I could be a contender. Lol.

    1. HGTV for the win. Although I also enjoy some Food Network. There's just something kind of good and comforting about people finding the perfect home or making a delicious meal.
