Week In Revew
February 23 – March 1
Hello and welcome to March! I know February is a short month, but with the ridiculously cold winter I’ve been experiencing, there were times I felt that the month would never end and warmer weather would never come (not that warmer weather has come yet, but we’re getting closer).
Anyway. This was a fun week in the world of condo purchasing because my husband and I got to go select tiles and cabinets and counter tops and faucets and much more. It was overwhelming and there was definitely some option overload, but it was also a lot of fun.
As for books, this was a pretty fabulous book week! I won a giveaway so thanks to Jess of Read My Breath Away and Candlewick Press, I received a box of goodies: The Tiger Rising and The Miraculous Journey of Edward Tulane by Kate DiCamillo; A Monster Calls by Patrick Ness and illustrated by Jim Kay; The Knife of Never Letting Go by Patrick Ness; Feed by M.T. Anderson; and Boy Proof by Cecil Castellucci. Thank you!!
And I finally used my last Chrismas gift card to purchase the first three books in Maureen Johnson’s Shades of London series: The Name of the Star, The Madness Underneath, and the just-released-this-month The Shadow Cabinet. The Madness Underneath ended in a way that kind of emotionally devastated me, and I can’t wait to see what happens next in The Shadow Cabinet!
That’s it for me! I need coffee, some food, and some reading time before my usual Sunday night viewing of The Walking Dead! Happy Sunday!
