What a week. What is there really to say?
In family news, it was my daughter’s birthday! I haven’t seen her in over a year, which makes me really sad, but we still managed to connect… and she did really like all the cozy gifts I sent her!
What did I read during the last week?
Dear Miss Kopp by Amy Stewart: The 6th book in the terrific Kopp Sisters series! My review is here.
The Mystery of Mrs. Christie by Marie Benedict: Powerful historical fiction based on a mysterious episode from Agatha Christie’s life. My review is here.
Across the Green Grass Fields by Seanan McGuire: The 6th book in the fantastic Wayward Children series. Loved it! My review is here.
The Duke & I by Julia Quinn: Well, of course I needed to start reading the books behind Bridgerton! And yes, I’m going to keep going. My review of book 1 is here.
Pop culture & TV:
This was definitely a week that called for mindless, distracting TV, and my favorite viewing was The History of Swear Words on Netflix. It’s six short episodes, and so much fun. Needless to say, if hearing swear words used and discussed bothers you, this isn’t for you — and don’t watch the trailer!
Puzzle of the week:
Another fun one!
A bunch of different books I’d ordered all arrived this week:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Lost Manuscript by Cathy Bonidan: Just getting started!

Our current classic read is part 2 of Don Quixote. My book group is reading and discussing three chapters per week. Plodding along…
So many books, so little time…
