It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
Whew this week was a rough one. Just everything was fight to get through for some reason. I am hoping this week goes easier! Maybe it is just the weather making things feel this way - where the heck is spring? "O wind, if Winter comes, can Spring be far behind?" All I can say is, we had thunder sleet the other day.
We did get to babysit my adorable niece last week - she and W. played so nicely together! It was a fun little cousin play date. The first of many. Usually they just kind of ignore each other, or pull each other's hair, etc. but this time was more of a mutual interest and playtime.
In church last week, our pastor asked us to think about our calling - she said this can be anything, it doesn't need to be a huge calling, but something we feel that we need to do. Then I started the Happiness of Pursuit book, and that is all about personal quests - what makes a quest, stories of people's quests - so far it is a pretty interesting book. It has definitely given me a lot to think about!
Read Last Week:
Death of a Nurse by M.C. Beaton: It was a nice week to return to Hamish and his beloved Lochdubh. This was a fun quick read.
Neanderthal Seeks Human by Penny Reid: I finally finished this! I was almost done a few weeks ago but then never actually finished it. I took care of that this week.
Reading This Week:
Trying to knock out some of my NetGalley books this week!
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler: I am curious about this one - I always liked The Taming of the Shrew!
Once a Rancher by Linda Lael Miller: I didn't get to this a few weeks ago- I want to try to wrap up these books. I'm feeling bad!
Slow Read with Husband:
The Happiness of Pursuit : Our little own book club book. Billy is also listening to the Mistborn series, and says it is awesome!
TWD!!! What the heck finale!!!! I think I know who it is though... :(
Outsiders, The Originals, Vampire Diaries, iZombie
For class this week, we had to watch Engineering an Empire: Egypt from the History Channel. It was really long but pretty fascinating!!
