It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


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

This past week was better for our family, thank goodness. I was pretty busy, but it was all fun - hair appointment, book club, and my sister in law's baby shower. I had a blast at book club - I love my friends. Alyssa made the best darn food too - Chickpea dumpling soup, pizza, chocolate cake. I was drowning in delicious comfort foods washed down by wine. Lol. I also had a morning coffee date with my husband, which was really nice. We don't get enough time just the two of us, hanging out. And finally, today we had a big family dinner with my mom, brother, aunt, and cousin and his family over at my cousin's house. It was an awesome time, and one we plan to repeat every month. 

I'm pretty excited about February. Usually the slowest yuckiest month here in Michigan, this year I am going to embrace it, and do some Valentines things. I am currently making valentines for Wyatt to send to his friends, and planning a few more fun outings, including a dinner out for Billy and I at a restaurant we've been wanting to go to. It is also my book club month! I am having a hard time deciding on a book - I am open to suggestions for a fun, lighthearted read, that is easy for everyone to get at a library. I was kind of thinking The Readers of Broken Wheel? 

Read Last Week:

In keeping with my week of comfort, I sought out a comfort read. I've read this before, and I can't help but love it. And, it snowed! It's been so ugly and gross here, that we needed a little bit of happy snow.



Reading this Week:

So, moving on!


Confessions of a Domestic Failure by Bunmi Laditan: I am looking forward to this fun sounding read! From NetGalley.

Watching:

Veronica Mars, How to get Away with Murder, Sherlock, Top Chef, Alone - the list is getting kind of long! I blame winter. Lol.

  2. Yeah the dreary Michigan winter rolls on. :) At least we're closer to March- I just hate January and February lol. Glad you had a good week! Veronica MArs is a show I wanted to try, but never have... maybe one of these days? The 100 comes this week so I'm happy. :)

    1. The sun is out here today! It has been a while, everyday has been gray. Yay for the sun! Veronica Mars is really good, and so so 90s/early 2000s you gotta love it. My husband is excited for the 100 as well!

  4. Sounds like a great week. I am with you on book clubs. I love mine, though we don't meet as often as we once did due to commitments. We stopped doing a specific book and started reading on themes which has been a lot of fun and then we share the books afterwards.

  7. Sounds like you had quite a good week, especially all that lovely food, prepared by someone else. Confessions of a Domestic Failure sounds like it might be a fun read.

  8. Glad you had a nice week. Your book group sounds like fun. It can be hard to come up with books. That is probably the one thing I don't like about running book groups. I haven't read Readers of Broken Wheel but it does sound like a light read. Some lighter reads my book groups have liked: The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore, A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman (also My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She's Sorry), The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion and The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce.

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
