Looking forward to the holidays | Weekly Snapshot

This coming week is a short week at work. One that I've been looking forward to for a while, if mainly to break the monotony of work + life at home and just have some life, movies, and fun.  Currently It looks like this week is going to be a very dull one in weather - cloudy, rainy sometimes, snowy towards the end of the week - very typical for winter but dull nevertheless. This is the season that has felt depressing to me ever since my first pregnancy - until then, I loved winter through and through. So, the extra restrictions that is the signature of 2020 is going to make this winter a dud. I think I'll just start planning for post-winter.  We wanted to go visit family in Boston but eventually, like many others, decided against it. Maybe there will be a vaccine available soon, and we can slowly start claiming some normalcy back.

mailboxmonday This meme was originally hosted by Marcia @ The Printed Page. It went on tour beginning August '10 and is hosted this month by She Reads and Reads. 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).

This week I received two books that I am excited about.

I saw My Lost Daughter by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg on a lot of blogs last week during a blog tour, and the pretty positive reviews have made me excited to read this one. This is a pretty huge book, so it will take me a while to get through it, but that's okay for books. This is supposed to be a legal thriller (and I love courtroom novels - I'm a big Perry Mason fan), which is the main reason I accepted this one for review from PR by the Book.

The other book that came in was The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson. I have been seeing this one occasionally on a few blogs, and the cover looks really wonderful, especially the color combination. I won this one at Joanne's Jo-Jo Loves to read during the BBAW giveaways.

Have you read any of these books?
