It's Monday again so time for another weekly recap. It was a good week and a great weekend. My daughter and I spent yesterday doing a girls' day out. We went to brunch, then went to see a matinee of Cinderella. We both enjoyed it, although it is quite a sad story. After the movie we got our nails done just in time for sandal weather! We finished the day off with frozen yogurt. It was a lot of fun!
I got a few things published on the blog last week.
Book Review: The Daughter by Jane Shemilt
Beyond Books: Grilled Potatoes Recipe
Book Review: Because of Winn-Dixie by Kate DiCamillo
I finished reading The Daughter and then moved on to The Storied Life of A. J. Fikry: A Novel by Gabrielle Zevin, which I loved. I will write a review this week. After that, I started September Sky by John Heldt.
M is finally finishing Maleficent by Elizabeth Rudnick, which follows the storyline of the movie. She and I also started our new book group at school on Friday. We are reading Bunnicula: A Rabbit Tale of Mystery by Deborah and James Howe. The vocabulary seems a bit challenging for this group of second graders, but hopefully we'll make it work!
