It's Monday and the crazy continues!

Hi fellow bibliophiles! How are things?

You know what ensures that this time of year is never boring? Working in a church and having a husband who is a pastor. In the weeks leading up to Easter, things get downright hectic around here. Then we throw into the mix a 3rd grader who is off from school, a 3 year old who does normal toddler things (like cut off half of her hair with her brother's scissors), and my prep for a trip after Easter.

After typing all that out, I feel slightly better about the frantic list-making that is going on in my house right now. But that doesn't mean that reading has stopped. As it turns out, the reading has actually been quite plentiful this week! I'm trying to get through a stack of library books before I go away. So I read We Were the Lucky Ones, The Parents' Guide to Boys, The Princess Diarist, and A SeparationI started listening to Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe, because we all need to listen to Lin-Manuel Miranda read a book.

Now I'm reading The F Word. This will be my second foray into the books of Liza Palmer, after I enjoyed her Girl Before a Mirror. 

What are you reading this week?


  1. I have A Separation and The Princess Diarist on my read soon, I hope.

    The hair cutting takes me back. One of my kids cut the bangs of his younger brother...just before we were scheduled for a photo! We had some "rearranging" of hair to do.

    Good luck! Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  2. I am a Pastor's assistant and can empathize with the busyness of this time of the year. Hope you get some reading time this week.

  3. My brother-in-law is a pastor, so I can sympathize! Wasn't We Were the Lucky Ones great. A favorite of mine this year. Hope the rest of the week goes smoothly!

  4. Busy time of year but, for your family, sounds crazy! I'm dying to read A Separation. Dante and Aristotle has had me intrigued for a while! Happy Easter!

  5. ENJOY your books and your reading week.

    Hope your week gets better.

  6. Wow! The fact that you can fit that much reading with such a busy schedule is awesome! I would be beyond distracted!

    Hope you are able to get a handle on the other things soon enough. Until then, happy reading. :)
