The two week update | Weekly Snapshot

Oh yikes, this once-in-two-week blogging routine better not be a habit. I hope it's just an indication of how busy July can get with planning for a birthday and doing different summer things. Life The girl had her birthday party today with friends from school and she had a fun day! It was nice seeing the kids have fun outside of school and take over the bouncy event place like they knew every corner of it. I was grateful for everyone who were brave enough to come to a party despite recent rises in case count. Thankfully most or all of us were vaccinated so that made the decision-making easier. Now that the party is behind me, I have a ton of things to get back to. I am hoping for a quieter week ahead and a chance to catch up on a few things. Reading I honestly haven't read much in the last two weeks. Well, at least not prose. Instead, I've been reading Marvel Comics. Don't ask. So far, I've read Thor: Son of Asgard and Wolverine's Origin stories. Loved all of th

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).

My mailbox had a pretty good satiating week this time. I almost crooned with delight as a parcel came in almost every day of this week.


  1. Reading Lolita in Tehran by Azar Nafisi was a win at Sheila's Book Journey.
  2. My Name is Memory by Ann Brashares arrived for review from Putnam (Penguin US)
  3. Denial: A Memoir of Terror by Jessica Stern arrived for review from Harper Collins, courtesy TLC.
  4. Night by Elie Wiesel: I bought this and the below three books from BetterWorldBooks on an Earth Day coupon. Gotta love BWB!
  5. The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini: Also from BWB.
  6. A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini: Also from BWB.
  7. Schindler's List by Thomas Keneally: Also from BWB.
What do you think of any of these books?

I am a big fan of Better World Books too! Khaled Hosseini's books are two of my favorite of all time - enjoy!
I've read most of these and enjoyed them, if that's the right word. They're emotionally tough to get through, but they're important. The only ones I haven't read are My Name is Memory, which I do want to read, Denial, and Schindler's List. Since I've seen the movie, I'm not sure if I'll ever get around to reading Schindler's List. It's hard for me to read books if I've already seen the movie and know the general idea. Enjoy!

You're going to need some fluff after you read all of those books! They do look great, though. I'm going to check out Better World Books now.
I received the Ann Brashares book also. It looks good doesn't it? Enjoy all your new reads!

Happy reading!
The only one I've read is Night by Elie Wiesel. I had to read it in high school, but unlike everyone else that was dreading it, I was super psyched. I read anything that has to do with the holocaust. It's a great read, and will most definitely make you cry!

I have Night in house and yet to read! and of course, you already know that I want to read A Thousand Splendid Suns. :)

Good looking mailbox there. I didn't love the Hosseini books as much as everyone else did but I'm starting to suspect that is a personal failing on my part. ;-)
