The Sunday Post/It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

  


Check out the The Caffeinated Book Review for the Sunday Post
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

So this was the week in Michigan when it snowed. And snowed. And snowed some more. The snow here is so high - not crazy multiple feet high, but for us, pretty deep! We took Wyatt outside to play in it, and he loves snow as much as we do - at least for now. I also did some garden planning, trying to think spring, and we read lots of books. So despite the days of snow, we had a good time. And the best of all? The Olympics are on! I am such a fan of the Olympics! I think my favorite events are the moguls, alpine skiing, and figure skating. Wyatt seems to love the figure skating too! He dances along with the music, shaking his hair about wildly. He is such a musical kid.



Read Last Week:


The November Girl - I loved this book! Mostly for the Michigan settings, but I loved the world that Kang created, and the way that Anda could commune with everything. I especially liked her interactions with lighthouses. :)

Nevernight: My husband wanted me to read this and I finally started it. And I love it!! I call it Hogwarts for Assasins, or Harry Potter meets GoT. There is more to it than that though, and is its own entire world and story, but that is the best way to sum it up, in my opinion. Lol. I am only halfway through it, and I already feel like it is going to be a favorite series for me. 

Reading This Week:



February is my book club month, and I picked the two Adichie books for us to read. They are so short that I felt we could handle both. :) I am looking forward to reading them!

And of course I am going to finish Nevernight. 

Watching:

Top Chef, Riverdale, Outlander, The Alienist


What about you all? What have you been up to?

  1. The Olympics- love it! I like the moguls and alpine as well, and the ski jumping. The November Girl definitely has my attention with the Michigan angle.

    I need to catch up on Riverdal. I'm a week behind...

  3. Nevernight looks really good and I'm definitely adding it to my TBR to look into more closely. Also watching Riverdale (although I am a few episodes behind) and Outlander. Loved the Outlander books. They were so much fun. I'm loving the series as well. Thanks for sharing and have a great week!

  5. We could use some of your snow here in northern Minnesota. We are many inches below normal. I'm a fan of the Olympics too. Figure skating is my favorite. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  8. I really enjoyed both of Adichie's essays/books. She has such a way of making her essays about Nigeria, but also about the world and humanity in general.

    I really have to read her longer books.

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.
