In mood for a vacation | Weekly Snapshot

Yet another week has gone by with no end in sight for the pandemic. Being able to distinguish weeks became a challenge months ago, so no surprises there. But the weather is getting colder and winter is coming (hopefully not Martin's winter - we had enough of that this year already). I used to love winter, I used to look forward to it. But for the past few years, it has tended to be a very gloomy season. I'm usually just looking forward to it ending. So, this year, it's going to be harder to get through the season, especially since we are all still mostly at home. Mind you, I don't mind the restrictions as they do have a useful purpose, but wish more people followed them well and that we had done a better job when the weather was warmer to keep the virus at bay so that it didn't have to last this long.

I am currently reading

The Chopin ManuscriptThe Chopin Manuscript by Jeffery Deaver (Audio book): I started this one last week. It's getting interesting, but unfortunately, I'm not getting much time to listen to it.

My reading plans for the next week

RainwaterRainwater by Sandra Brown: This one is due back in the library this Friday (one of the victims of my simultaneous holds coming together). I just might read this, I really want to, but I'll be choosing between this one and the book below!



Not my DaughterNot my Daughter by Barbara Delinsky: I've read a lot of good reviews about this book over the last week, that I'm really keen to read this one. What do you do, when you have to choose between two books you want to read? Try to read both, right? Probably give everything else second importance only? ::shudder::
Check out what others are reading here!

City of Bones is one I have been curious about. A girl in my book club is flying through these reads and says they are fantastic.

Have a great reading week!

I'll be looking forward to your review of City of Bones.

I came across The Chopin Manuscript somewhere, and it sounds intriguing. I can't wait to see what you think of that one either.

Enjoy your books!

bermudaonion, I wish I read even more! I'm never satisfied! ;-)

dArLyN, I did! I loved Rainwater!

Sheila, City of Bones was good! I think you should read it!

Lynne, I'll be reviewing Say you're one of them soon. But I wasn't too impressed by it!

Juju, thanks! :)

Cat, I had to drop Not my daughter! :-(

Jennifer G, I hope I finish The Chopin Manuscript soon! Being an audio book, I struggle to find time to listen to it.
