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

Look at what just arrived! - October 11, 2010

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?

I love legal thrillers too so My Lost sounds terrific - will look forward to your review.
Legal thrillers, very fun. Somehow I haven't heard of either of these books so I look forward to seeing what you think of them
