It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
Busy week, and I honestly can't even tell you what we did. It was one of those weeks that was frittered away in small amounts, until it was gone. Not a bad week, just kind of a week, you know?
Prince's death was such a sad shock. I had to introduce Wyatt to his music, especially my favorite "Little Red Corvette". Prince was such a huge part of my childhood, musicwise. It's hard to believe he is gone.
I am finally after a year feeling easier about my leaving my son to go out for a few hours on date nights - his prematurity I think sent me into overprotective overdrive for a while. Last night my husband and I went to our favorite metropark, on a night bird walk and bonfire. It had been a warm but slightly brisk day, and neither of us dressed for how cold it became once the sun started to go down! We ended up staying to catch sight of the birds (American Woodcock) we had gone to hopefully see, then headed home. It was a fun night - we are obviously nerdy daters. This week we are going to the new penguin exhibit at the Detroit Zoo on a date. The new exhibit is the largest in the world, at 33,000 square feet and 326,000 gallons of water. The zoo is having special after hours members only evenings and so that is what we are going to do. Usually there are adult beverages at these special nighttime events, so a glass of wine would be nice too. Our dates are very bird-centric this month so far!
Read Last Week:
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler: I am so close to being done!! I am in love with this book so far, it is a really fun adaptation of Shakespeare's Taming of the Shrew.
I had no idea when I started this book last week, that last week was the week of Shakespeare's birthday! How appropriate, right? Goodreads had a weeklong celebration, and I saw so many online articles about the Bard, that I had to check them out. I will include the links to a few interesting ones at the end of my post!
Reading This Week:
Lowcountry Boneyard by Susan M. Boyer
Don't You Cry by Mary Kubica
I won't get to both of these but it is one of these I will be reading.
The Originals, Supernatural, TVD, The Ranch with Sam Elliot, and Game of Thrones returns tonight! Woohoo!
