It's Monday and we are in Readathon recovery mode!

Good morning! How is everyone doing?

For me, this past week was mostly about getting ready for the Readathon! You can read all about my adventures here, but it was fun to have my mom along for the ride this time around. I did post reviews of Why We Came to the City, Drama High, and The Snow Child. Other than that, it was lots of usual work, taking care of the kids, and making sure some sleep happened once in a while! I am pretty excited because my birthday is tomorrow, so I am looking forward to being spoiled a bit by my family.

This week, I read Excellent Daughters. During the Readathon, I tackled Yes, Please, Birds of a Feather, and French Milk. I started Tales of Accidental Genius and finished it up on Sunday night before collapsing into sleep at 10 p.m. like the old lady I aspire to be.

        Tales of Accidental Genius    Excellent Daughters: The Secret Lives of Young Women Who Are Transforming the Arab World

        Birds of a Feather (Maisie Dobbs, #2)     French Milk 

So what am I going to read this week? Honestly, I have no idea. I made up my book list through Readathon and now I have to take a look at my books and see what is up next!

What are you reading this week?



  1. Wish I had stopped by to say hi on your blog during the readathon! Blogspot makes it really hard for me (impossible really) to comment on my phone!! :(

    And HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!! May you have lots of good food, good company and of course ALL THE GOOD BOOKS.

    1. Thanks so much!! It was a nice birthday indeed. :)

  2. Sounds like a great readathon! I adore Simon van Booy, but haven't read this one and Excellent Daughters sounds wonderful. Happy early birthday!

    1. I have quite a few Simon van Booy books to read myself. It's a nice thing to look forward to!

      Thanks for the birthday wishes. :)

  3. You have an incredibly interesting array of books!

  4. Happy, happy early birthday! :) I'm glad you had such a great Readathon to kick off your birth week!

  5. Sounds like you had a fun Readathon! I did too - my first time!

    I enjoyed French Milk - not quite as polished as her other books but still enjoyable (and made me want to go to Paris!)

    I;m sure you'll find something good to read - enjoy your books this week!

  6. Happy birthday. I'm visiting from the linkup.
    If you love short stories, would you like to review my short story collection? I've been selling it on Amazon but I am also looking for a few blogger reviews. You can look at it at my author page and let me know if you're interested.

  7. Happy birthday! I hope you are spoiled rotten and enjoy every minute of it!
