Last week our house was dealing with germs! My son caught the dreaded back to school cold and passed it on to my husband. I have been dealing with my own asthma for two weeks, thanks to ragweed season. Fingers crossed for a better week! We did manage to visit the zoo for a quick few hours Friday morning, and then go to Hawkfest with my brother and his family on Saturday. I am excited, this week I get to take my niece on a school field trip to the pumpkin patch! It should be fun, and I am looking forward to hanging out with her.

Read Last Week:

The Daughters of Temperance Hobbs is a sequel to The Physick Book of Deliverance Dance, which I loved. I was so excited to read this one, and I loved it just as much! Review this week.

Reading This Week:

The Simple Wild (Wild, #1)

I finally picked this up and I am loving it! Just what I needed after a few super intense reads. If I do finish it, I am reading this one next, although I am nervous.

Wild and Crooked

I have mixed feelings about reading this – as the mother of a child with Cerebral Palsy I am thrilled that there is a book with a main character that has CP; on another level, I know this will probably be a bit emotional to read as well.

Watching:

We binged and finished up Mindhunter Season 2- that show really is fantastic. I was riveted and when the season ended I wasn’t ready! We also started watching The British Bake Off, which we always love. This week we might start the Dark Crystal series on Netflix – I loved that movie as a kid!

Posted Last Week:

Date Night: Ragtime Street Fair and Motor Muster

It’s Wednesday! What Are You Listening to?

What about you? What is happening in your world?

  1. Let me try again.

    I hope Wild and Crooked is everything you look for in a story. It is very important to me that books are both windows and mirrors. I will be curious to see what you think of this one.

    We volunteered yesterday at the Hummingbird Xtravaganza. It was great fun. I plan to go to our hawk watch soon.

    Have a wonderful week.

    • I love your comment about books being doors and windows. What a great thought. So true!

      Ooo Hummingbirds!!! That is awesome! It was really interesting at Hawkwatch this year, it was so hot and humid, that the hawks were not migrating yet. So much later every year.

  2. Sorry to hear you had a difficult week with germs and being unwell, I hope all is better for you this week 🙂 I’ve never heard of your books for this week but I’ll certainly look them up, some gorgeous covers there too! Have a lovely week!

  3. Ooh Hawkfest sounds fun! I like raptor/ bird of prey type exhibits- they’re such fascinating birds! And the sickness has been raging over here too- my daughter has asthma and everyone’s been sick!

    That Dark crystal series does look good!

  4. Sorry to hear you’ve all been battling the bugs! Fingers crossed everyone makes a speedy recovery! (Not to mention your asthma settling down.)

    I finally watched a trailer for Mindhunter after seeing people rave about it and I’ll admit I’m intrigued! Will definitely be binging it at some point soon!
