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

mailboxmonday 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 totally forgotten about this win @ Sera's Laughing through the Chaos. After reading the many warm reviews of this book, I'd love to read it too!


Balancing Acts by Zoe Fishman


Library Loot is a weekly event co-hosted by Eva @ A Striped Armchair and Marg @ Reading Adventures that encourages bloggers to share the books they’ve checked out from the library.

I had a slow library week. I guess I need to get through my last loot before I head for the next pile. My hold for Push just came through.
  1. Push by Sapphire: Last time I picked this book, I was neck-deep in work with no time to read any book. I'm glad that's not the case now. I can't wait to read this.
What do you think of any of these books?

I haven't read Balancing Acts, but it's gotten fantastic reviews. I really enjoyed Push, but it's gritty and difficult to read at times. Have a great week in books!

I bought Balancing Acts a few weeks ago. I need to read it :) Have a good week!
PUSH has been on my list for a while, but it's ALWAYS checked out of my school's library. That's a good sign though.
