We had one of those good and hectic weekends. I worked late on Friday and picked up the boy from a sleepover on Saturday morning, Then we all went to the birthday party of our nephew Saturday afternoon and spent Sunday at church and the afternoon/evening celebrating Father's Day with my husband and dad.
I have still been reading, of course. It is good for this lady's mental health to find some quiet time every day to read a few chapters. I finished Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World and then read What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi. Currently, I'm reading The Fifth Avenue Artists Society and am looking forward to tackling Stewart O'Nan's City of Secrets next.
What are you reading this week?
What is not yours is on my TBR.ReplyDelete
I think Oyeyemi is such a fascinating writer! Have you read anything by her before?Delete
You just made my TBR list grow. I'd like to read all of these. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
Well, my work here is done. :)Delete
Will you be sharing your thoughts on Raising Grateful Kids In An Entitled World? I look forward to that if so.ReplyDelete
Yes I will! I think I will probably have that review up later this week.Delete
I hope you review The Fifth Avenue Artists Society...it looks like a good one. :)ReplyDelete
I liked it. It reminded me of beloved stories like Little Women!Delete
Looks like a nice variety of books for you...and a lovely weekend with your family! I'm with you - that reading time at the end of each day is my special treat :)ReplyDelete

Oh yes, reading is some of the best medicine to relax and unwind. Hope you have a great week.ReplyDelete
Thank goodness for it, right??Delete
Hope your family had a great Father's Day! You've been reading so much - can't wait to hear what you thought of the new Helen Oyeyemi!ReplyDelete
I think I'm on a good reading streak. :)Delete
The Oyeyemi was a mixed bag for me. I loved some of the stories, but there were a few that I had to motivate myself to keep reading.
The Fifth Avenue Artist Society sounds interesting! I've been so busy there hasn't been any quiet time. This week I'm planning some down time. I'm looking forward to summer.ReplyDelete
I hope you get some of that quiet reading time this week, Heidi!Delete
I haven't read any of these titles, but I have read several Stewart O'Nan books in the past years and remember really enjoying him! Hope it's a good one.ReplyDelete
I have really enjoyed several of his books too, so I'm looking forward to this one!Delete
