What a whirlwind couple of weeks it’s been! I’m still on the East Coast, flying home tomorrow. After a brief quarantine and a negative COVID test, post-flight, I’ve been able to visit my dad every day while here, which feels like an absolute blessing.
Thanks to my sister, I’ve also been transformed! Well, in terms of appearance, anyway. After a year of no salon visits and no hair coloring, my sister convinced me that I am just too young (LOL) for that much white hair. Et voila! Here are my before and after shots:
What did I read during the last week?
Not much, actually. Between family time and trying to work all the rest of the time, I’ve barely been reading. But here’s what I managed to get through:
Emily’s Quest by L. M. Montgomery: I finished the Emily Starr trilogy, and just can’t recommend these books highly enough! Beautiful reading experience. My wrap-up post is here.
An Unexpected Peril by Deanna Raybourn: So much fun! I love this series. My review is here.
Pop culture & TV:
I watched the 3rd Lara Jean movie on Netflix!
So cute! The first one is still my favorite, but I liked this a lot.
No new books while I’m away… but I know a few are waiting for me back at home.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales: A little YA to start the week.
Now playing via audiobook:
Sweetshop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan: I needed something sweet and light to keep me company on the treadmill this week, and Jenny Colgan books are perfect!
- Outlander Book Club is re-reading Outlander! We’re reading and discussing one chapter per week. This week: Chapter 39, “To Ransom A Man’s Soul”. This is a tough chapter. I’m not actually looking forward to re-reading it…
- Our group classic read is part 2 of Don Quixote. Continuing onward, 3 chapters per week. Current status: 75%.
So many books, so little time…
