It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
It was a crazy week last week in our household. On Wednesday, my mom, Wyatt and I met my sister-in-law, niece, and my SIL's mom at the street art fair in our city. It was such a hot and humid day, and Wyatt began to flag early. I was concerned about him and decided we had to leave. I am glad we did, because he actually was fine once I got him somewhere cool, but my mother practically collapsed from heat exhaustion. She is doing fine now, but she had me very worried! We will not be venturing out into such a hot day again - too much for my heart to take between my mom and son! In better news, we had book club woohoo!! None of us were able to read the book. I know that sounds crazy, but there was only one copy available in the library system and to be honest, I checked it out but it was just too much for me to handle, theme wise. It was intense and violent, and with the world the way it is right now, I couldn't do it. We still had fun hanging out - it was a beautiful night, and we sat on my friend's deck enjoying wine in the cool night breeze, chatting away. Reality intruded quickly though, when we realized we could while away the time too easily, and we all had babies to get home too. It was a nice time, and a nice few hours out.
My goal this week on the blog is to try to catch up on reviews! It is supposed to be another hot week here in the mitten. In fact one weather report I saw described the heat as torrid. Yuck.
Read Last Week:
A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J. Maas: I had heard there are conflicting opinions on this book, and after reading it, I could see why. However, I am firmly in the camp of LOVING this book!!! It is over 600 pages and I was sad when it ended. Now I have to wait for the next one. Noooo!
Reading This Week:
Feast or famine, I think I said in another post- and all of my library holds are in now. Lol. I need to decide what I am reading. I have so many good choices!!! I think I am going to start with these two.
The Tour de France - I love this race! My husband and I watch most of it seperately during the day, and save the last 30 km to watch with each other at night. It is a fun way to watch, and we get to watch the exciting stuff together. Is anyone else watching? What did you think of the run Froome did? So crazy!
We are also watching Alone, Wayward Pines, Penny Dreadful, Outlander, although we are falling behind on Alone and Pines, due to the Tour.
How about you all? What's going on in your corner of the world?
