Weekly Reading Recap


Good morning. I hope you all had a good week. I'm officially another year older than I was last week, and have begun a new decade in my life. It was a fun weekend, celebrating my birthday and hosting a Super Bowl party last night.

As far as reading goes, I finally finished The Ruins of Us by Kaija Parssinen, which was a wonderful work of literary fiction that opened my eyes to life in Saudi Arabia. I'll be reading another book that takes place in Saudi Arabia, Finding Nouf by Zoe Ferraris, for my February book club meeting.

I wrote a review for Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand last week. And I shared some of the books my kids have been reading.

Currently Reading
I'm about halfway through 30 Lessons for Living: Tried and True Advice from the Wisest Americans by Karl Pillemer, which I'm really enjoying.

Up Next
Next, I'll be moving on to Finding Nouf.

  1. I don't think I've read any books set in Saudia Arabia before - I'll have to put that on my list for when I read more from that region.

  2. Oooh...on a geographical kick, huh? I've read quite a few books set in the Middle East but I don't think I've read a book set in Saudi Arabia yet. They both sound interesting.

    Happy Birthday and enjoy your books this week!!
