Good Morning! Everyone recovered from the Big Game? I don’t know about you, but I actually watched more of the Puppy Bowl than the actual Superbowl. I am not much of a football fan, so I didn’t have any hopes and dreams dashed last night. And if the rest of the winter is like the past few days (above freezing and sunny here in Cleveland!), then I am a-ok with the giant rodent’s predictions. I am not even close to being prepared to do yard work. I am enjoying the blanket of snow that is hiding all of my half-started projects. Besides, this is reading weather! Not that I really did much reading last week…
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
- Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis is a disturbing look at a world without an abundance of fresh water. I really enjoyed this debut novel from a fellow Ohioan.
- Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh offers a painful, but sometimes hilarious glimpse into the world of depression. This book is composed of materials previously published on the author’s blog, Hyperbole and a Half as well as new material. The stories about the dogs was my favorite and left me in tears (my own dogs now know for a fact that I am insane).
I just love Sarah Addison Allen’s books, and her newest, Lost Lake is just as dreamy and charming as I expected it to be. I will finish this one this week. On Playaway I have Half Brother by Kenneth Oppel. The dogs and I are all thrilled to have warmer temperatures so we can get back into our walking (and listening) routines. I think Half Brother will make an excellent addition to my book club reading list!
My next audiobook is definitely the new Flavia book! As for print books, I am not sure what will be next.
