It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

I didn’t get much reading done last week, as Wyatt was home sick, poor kiddo. I of course caught his cold, although a more mild version. I have my fingers crossed we are feeling better soon, because our family “UK dinner” is this weekend! I have decided on an Irish Beef Stew, and I am hoping that this is actually a thing in Ireland. If it’s not don’t tell me yet! Lol. It should be a fun night though. My cousin has been hard at work perfecting his Yorshire Pudding, and I have to say, his look like the best efforts our family has made since my grandma used to make it.

Read Last Week/Reading This week:

That being said, I have not been able to really read or focus on anything. I did download and start one book, and I hope to settle down and read it this week. I still also have The Starless Sea sitting here unopened.

By Book or by Crook by Eva Gates: I read Spook in the Stacks back in October, and decided it was time to circle around and start the series from the beginning. I didn’t read much but I did enjoy what I have read so far! (Amazon)

The Starless Sea by Erin Morgenstern: My husband finished this and is singing its praises so hopefully I get it started this week.

Nonfiction I am reading:

The Hands-On Home: I am a very seasonal person, so I am really excited to start this book!

Around the World in 80 Trees: I am continuing to read this every week, here and there.

Posted Last Week:

I am so glad I prepped some book reviews last weekend!

Book Review: Tuesday Mooney Talks to Ghosts

Book Reviews: Willow Tree Hall Series 1-3

Friday Favorites


Locke and Key, Grace and Frankie, and Doc Martin. He is still kind of harsh but I feel like I understand his character so much more now, especially after a couple of key episodes.

  1. I’m sorry that your son and you have been sick. No one feels like doing much of anything, even reading, when they feel sick. I hope you feel better this week, and I especially hope you get a chance to start Starless Sea.

    I don’t know if there is a real Irish Stew but it’s what my family called it, too, and some of them were said to be Irish.

    It’s nice to have some things ready to go on your blog when you don’t feel like writing.

    I hope you have a good week!

  2. So tell us more about this UK dinner. How did this tradition start? Why this weekend? Et cetera? 🙂

    I’ll be honest that I gave up on Doc Martin years ago. We like Martin Clunes, but for some reason, just never got back to it. So what season are you in in Frankie and Grace (oops, I mean, Grace and Frankie 😉 ) ? I’m just ready to start Season 4, but did give it a break this past week because the drama part of it sometimes is too much and this past week, it was.

    1. I am hoping to do a blog post – although my photos are horrid so I am not sure what to do about that part. I am a terrible food photographer. My brother just decided this year he wanted to do it, kind of because my sister in law had made a figgy pudding at Christmas and to celebrate our heritage as a family. Last year was rough, we lost my aunt and my stepfather within a few months of each other, and we are working on new traditions as part of our grieving process, if that makes sense at all.

      LOL! I am on the newest season, about halfway through. 🙂 And yeah, sometimes it doesn’t get a little over the top!

  3. I hope you are on the mend. I know I don’t feel like reading when I am battling any kind of illness. I’m still reading Willow Tree and so far, so good. Looks like you have some good books on the list to read when you are feeling better.

  4. I love, love that your husband liked Erin’s book. I liked Night Circus but sometimes it’s hard for me to “believe” magical realism. I’ll have to give that book another go.
