Finally reading some great books | Weekly Snapshot

One more week down, again a very busy week in work but thankfully with far less worries.  Life My last couple of months were very busy with work, since I started a new project. While there's more coming up over the next few weeks, I am also hoping that maybe I have passed the point where it stops being a part of every waking moment and allow me to be able to read without interrupting thoughts fluttering around in my head. We'll see.  We got enough snow yesterday for the kids to be able to play and make a snow man. All the snow melted by noon but we are getting more overnight so hopefully there's more snow fun to be had.  Reading After not being able to stay with a book long enough to be pulled into it for the past couple of weeks, I was desperately looking for a book that was both a fast read and also one that I would love. That was a high bar to meet even under the best of circumstances, but luckily, yesterday morning, I found just the book. I devoured Meichi Ng's Bare

Off for a week!

Happy Thanksgiving and Hanukkah to all who celebrate it!

I will be away from the blog until next Wednesday as we are heading down to Miami and Key West this weekend. It will be interesting to step into the plane from 30 F weather and step out into 70 F weather. Not that I am looking forward to it. I love winter any day!

Still, it's a vacation, a break from work for 6 days, a chance to relax, enjoy Cuban cuisine, and read some books. These are what I've packed into my bag/kindle and cannot wait to dig into!




As usual, I am taking more books than I usually finish even in a month but who's to say I shouldn't be optimistic? Or overly optimistic. I may well read Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House, simply because I've heard way too much about it and it's due back at the library soon. Which one would you choose to read?

I am very late with this comment, so I just hope you loved all the books! Did you like Kindred?!

I loved Kindred! That's the only book I read on my vacatopm. I wish I had read it sooner for #Diversiverse. I still cannot get the book out of my head and cannot believe it took me so long to get to it.
