Week in Review

       aaa1

Good Monday morning! I hope you had a fabulous week. After two weeks of just going to school one day, my kids finally went to school for almost a whole week. They had a delay on Friday but at least they went eventually. And now, Spring has finally arrived in North Carolina. The 10-day forecast looks wonderful, so M and I got outside yesterday and planted our carrots and onions. Hopefully we'll be able to plant the rest within a few weeks.

Reviews and Blog Posts

I only managed one post last week. I'm not really sure what happened, but somehow I never got around to writing more than that. This week, I have several things planned so you'll see a lot more of me!

Book Review: Relish: My Life in the Kitchen by Lucy Knisley

Storied Life of A.J. Fikry Reading
I have been reading The Daughter: A Novel by Jane Shemilt for the entire week. I will finish it today and post my review tomorrow for the tour. After that, I'll probably start The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: A Novel by Gabrielle Zevin, since I picked it up from the library on the weekend. It's my March book club selection.

C is reading The War of the Worlds by H.G. Wells. He seems to be enjoying it! He had to pick a poem to recite at school this month, so I got him a couple poetry books as well from the library. He wanted something humorous so he's picking one of the poems from For Laughing Out Loud: Poems to Tickle Your Funnybone by Jack Prelutsky.

What are you reading this week? It's Monday! is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too. You can also check out the younger version of It's Monday!

  1. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on The Daughter, I've read some good reviews for it. I loved A. J. Fikry, one of my favorite books last year.

  2. I hear you - my son only went to school 2 days last week! We are still covered with snow here from last week's storm, but it went up to 50 today (!) so hopefully, we will be thinking spring by the end of the week.

    I just bought The Storied Life of AJ Fikry for my friend for her birthday. I'd heard it was a very uplifting novel which is right up her alley - hope you like it!

    1. I'm glad to hear that about AJ Fikry. I also heard it was a quick read, which is what I need right about now! I had to get the large print version because that's all that was available at the library, so I figure it will be even easier to read, even when I'm tired!

    And enjoy Fikry. It's very charming.

    1. Yes! I was excited to hear he decided to read that. He read The Time Machine for school and the book we have includes three other stories by H.G. Wells.
