I’m home! I flew back from the East Coast on Tuesday, took a couple of days to unpack, do laundry, and settle back into my normal life, and went right back to work (from home).

What did I read during the last week?
Perfect on Paper by Sophie Gonzales: A terrific YA novel. My review is here.
Romancing Mister Bridgerton by Julia Quinn: The Bridgerton books are perfect for airplane reading! My review of #4 is here.
Sweetshop of Dreams by Jenny Colgan: Such a sweet, fun audiobook! My review is here.

What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Ladies of the Secret Circus by Constance Sayers: The upcoming new release by the author of A Witch in Time, which I loved.

Christmas at Rosie Hopkins’ Sweetshop by Jenny Colgan: I don’t usually go for Christmas books, but this is the follow-up to Sweetshop of Dreams — and I just wasn’t ready to leave the characters from Sweetshop behind when I finished the book.
