Week In Review
March 31 – April 6
I’m doing this one a couple of days late because I was out of town this weekend and got sick, so I wasn’t feeling up to putting this post together on Sunday night when I got home.
On Friday, I took the train to Toronto to visit my mom, my younger sister, and her husband. We went to a Raptors game and got to watch from one of the executive suites, which was quite the experience! I’ve never done anything like that before and it was so much fun to watch while having food and drinks brought to us, including a dessert cart! Drake was at the game, and someone proposed to his girlfriend during an intermission, which was pretty exciting!
On Saturday, my mom and sister and I went to a Blue Jays game. I was super excited, since this was a bit of a last-minute decision, and it was their home-opening weekend. While it may not have been the most exciting game for my mom and sister to watch, I had a great time and was thrilled to see a win! I’m three for three as far as wins go for games I see in person, and I hope that streak continues when I go back with my husband and some friends to see the Jays play again in June.
The rest of the weekend was full of yummy food and learning to knit, and dealing with a cold that emerged on Saturday. The train ride back to Ottawa while stuffy and congested wasn’t entirely pleasant, but sitting in a window seat in business class helped a bit. 😉
It was a busy book week! I purchased Into the Still Blue by Veronica Rossi and my pre-order of The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith arrived. In Toronto, I purchased Laini Taylor’s Days of Blood and Starlight and Burial Rites by Hannah Kent.
I finished reading Blackout by Mira Grant; Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis (this was amazing!!); Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh; and Stella by Helen Eve. I also finished reading Servants of the Storm by Deliliah Dawson.
Last week I posted my review of The Crane Wife by Patrick Ness; a Top Ten Tuesday about my ‘gateway’ books; a write-up about the Ottawa book blogger meet up; my review of Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige; and my review of The Here and Now by Ann Brashares.
