Weekly Reading Recap

I have a better week of reading to report on today. I actually managed to finish two books last week!

I read If Walls Could Talk: An Intimate History of the Home by Lucy Worsley and Girl with a Pearl Earring by Tracy Chevalier. I haven't written reviews for these yet, but I plan to write them this week.

I also shared some farm books my daughter and I read last week, since her theme at school was farms.

This afternoon, I'll have a 1st quarter recap linky up for my Non-Fiction Non-Memoir Reading Challenge. I also plan to write up my April reading recap post this week.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading another nonfiction book from NetGalley: Drinking from the Fire Hose: Making Smarter Decisions without Drowning in Information by Christopher J. Frank and Paul F. Magnone.

Up Next
Next, I'll be reading Off the Grid by Mark Young.

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.


  1. Off the Grid sounds good!
    I have so many blog tours and guest posts this month it will be hard to squeeze in some just for fun reading!

    Have an awesome week!

    1. I actually don't have many tours this month so I'm looking forward to catching up on some other reading!

  2. Did you enjoy Girl with a Pearl Earring? I don't usually that sort of period fiction. The movie was pretty good, though.

    Hope you enjoy your books this week -


    1. I did enjoy it for the most part. But I felt like there wasn't much to it. I'm struggling to write the review...

  3. I heard an interview with Lucy Worsley on NPR a few weeks back. Her book sounded interesting. I was especially interested in the history of the bedroom. Very intriguing stuff. Miht have to find the actual book.

    1. It was interesting. She uncovered some unique little bits of history.


Thanks for stopping by! I'd love to hear your thoughts!
