I spent much of the evening in a lovely Facetime session with my sister and brother-in-law in California, so I have just a few minutes to squeeze in this post before heading off to bed.
It's been a pretty good week around here. D lost a tooth, which means he lost two teeth in as many weeks. I had a meeting about some new editing work, so I'm excited to start working with them and grow my little editing business.
I read The Hate U Give, which was just as well-written and thoughtful as everyone says, and A Simple Favor for a TLC Book Tour. I also squeezed in The Magnolia Story, which will make you smile if you love watching Fixer Upper on HGTV.
Right now, I'm reading We Were the Lucky Ones, one of many books in my giant library pile.
What are you reading this week?
The Hate U Give is on my wishlist. It's Monday, What Are you reading?ReplyDelete
Excellent! I hope you enjoy it!Delete
Loved We Were the Lucky Ones. I hope it works for you, too!ReplyDelete
I just finished it today. I would never have guessed it was a debut novel!Delete
We were the lucky ones is one of those books that will draw my attention immediately! Cover, title..... Everything screams read me! Will keep an eye out for your review. Here's my April Library Card: http://marelithalkink.blogspot.co.za/2017/04/library-card-april-2017.htmlReplyDelete
It was the same for me. I tend to read a lot of historical fiction set in that era and I'm trying to branch out a bit, but I had to read this one after hearing so much praise!Delete
I have The Magnolia Story on my Kindle but haven't gotten it onto my calendar yet. I try to set up a calendar for reviews and stick to the plan. I fit in books from TBR mountain around the review copies. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
That makes a lot of sense. I do something similar with my books, review books, and my library books.Delete
I've got to read the Hate U Give, sounds so great and thought-provoking. We Were the Lucky Ones also looks so cute. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
My Monday post
I recommend both, although I wouldn't call We Were the Lucky Ones cute! It's a story of three generations of a Jewish family during WWII based on the author's own family.Delete
"We Were the Lucky Ones" does look good (based on the cover, of course).ReplyDelete
Doesn't every literary love affair begin with a good cover? :)Delete
I love Chip and Joanna Gaines.ReplyDelete
Love the cover of We Are The Lucky Ones.
Have a terrific week.
My It's Monday, What Are You Reading
We do too! My husband and I were watching a clip show that other night, and they just make you laugh and feel like there is still some silly goodness still in the world.Delete
I've had We Were the Lucky Ones on my list for my book club to read. If they don't agree to it, I'll just add to my own list. I've heard so many great things about that one. Have a great week!ReplyDelete
That seems like a good plan. You win either way!Delete
I'm really keen the read We Were the Lucky Ones, it has attracted so many positive reviews on various blogs/Goodreads. Enjoy, I would love tot hear your thoughts on it.ReplyDelete
Have a lovely week :-)

Definitely well-deserved! I read a lot of WWII era novels and this one still taught me new things and had me nervous about the fates of the characters.Delete
