Pandemic-fatigue | Weekly Snapshot

It got busy this week! Lots going on at home, work, and otherwise as well.  Life My daughter's school decided to close on Friday, along with several other schools in the area, with some being closed from Thursday. Not enough staff. The school had been on a mask mandate since the beginning of the pandemic, dropping it only for one week when the pandemic had appeared to have stabilized last year. And yet, they dropped the mandate completely at the beginning of this year, when cases were exponentially rising, only to bring it back again starting next week. I've gone from being very annoyed to angry to feeling fatigue in these first two weeks already. I won't lie - we all mask around here and try to avoid going where we don't have a need to be in, and still, we are not taking anything close to the extreme precaution we all took at the beginning of the pandemic. I cannot and don't want to keep my kids home - I have at least that much faith in the schools' precautions

This meme is hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

I had a good week with four review books on my doorstep.


  1. Fireworks over Toccoa by Jeffrey Stepakoff (from St. Martin's Press)
  2. The Overnight Socialite by Bridie Clark (from FSB)
  3. The Lumby Lines by Gail Fraser (from FSB)
  4. Glorious by Bernice L. McFadden (from Akashic Books)
See what others have bought over the last week!

I haven't read any of your new books, but I'm hoping you enjoy them. It is always such a nice surprise to open one of the padded envelopes :)
