Week In Review
July 1 – 7
Hello all! I’m coming off a very short work week, which somehow made this weekend feel like it’s been flying by. I had Monday off for Canada Day, then took Tuesday off for an extra-long weekend, then had Wednesday morning off work to attend a medical appointment.
Canada Day was full of drinks and yummy food with friends, the Blue Jays game on tv, and capped off with Parliament Hill’s fireworks (although we didn’t actually make it to Parliament Hill to see them!).
My husband and I started watching The Wire this week, and we flew through it, finishing season one yesterday. What a show! It’s so intense and gritty, and I love how the show really took its time establishing the setting and characters, setting up the story for the rest of the season. We’re looking for season two asap!
I’ve also got a very exciting announcement coming up Wednesday morning, in conjunction with Kathy from A Glass of Wine; Kelly from KellyVision; and Christy from The Reader Bee; so check back in to see what it is!
In new book news, I brought home the following books from book club a couple of weeks ago (and then forgot to mention them, so you get to hear about them now): The Archived by Victoria Schwab, which I’ve been wanting to read forevs; A Corner of White by Jaclyn Moriarty, which has intrigued me for some time; and Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane, which will be my first book of his.
I almost picked up Andrew Smith’s Winger as well, which I really really really want to read, but somehow restrained myself and instead am on hold at the library for a copy.
I’m almost done reading Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo, and am about halfway through Going Vintage by Lindsey Leavitt. I finished Jennifer E. Smith’s This Is What Happy Looks Like, so that review will be posted in a couple of weeks. I also picked up a copy of The Program from the library and am really excited to read it!
Well, that’s it for me. I’m planning to spend the day finishing Siege and Storm, playing Nintendo, watching baseball with my husband, and trying to stay cool!
