Last week was full of yard work. Spring decided to stick around, so we started working on our mud pit we pretend is a backyard. Other than growing lots of muscles with all the digging and wheelbarrowing I’ve done, here’s what’s I’ve been up to.
What I’m currently reading:
I’m almost finished The Hero’s Guide to Being an Outlaw. Part of me doesn’t want to finish it because then the series is over. I was thinking about buying all three books in hardcover so that I can have them forever. Then, any time I need a pick-me-up, I can read one and laugh ’til the cows come home.
My daughter and I are still working on The Ostrich Conspiracy (Platypus Police Squad #2). We are about 75% of the way through it and she is still loving it. She’s disappointed that there isn’t another book out yet. I had to explain that it takes a long time for authors to write and illustrate books, and that technically, this book isn’t out yet either. I’m half way done with Glamorous Illusions and I am loving it! It’s different from other historical fiction books and it’s really well written. I just started Lost & Found, but so far, so good.
I’m still hoping to read The Center of Everything before I have to take it back to the library. It’s a short book. You’d think I would be able to squeeze it in somewhere, but I’ve had it for a month and haven’t found the time yet.
I have been working on Anne Elisabeth Stengl’s Tales of Goldstone Wood series (Heartless, Veiled Rose, Moonblood) over the past several weeks and I finally caught up to where I need to be in order to read Shadow Hand. I’m really biting the bit to get started, especially after how much I loved Moonblood.
I’m participating in the blog tour for Meant to be Mine in May. Because I don’t work well under pressure, I usually read tour books well in advance. It’s not because I’m organized. It’s because I don’t like panicking, which I’m guaranteed to do if I don’t read them early. I’m also interested in how Mister Max: The Book of Lost Things is going to turn out. I’ve had it on my TBR for a LONG time, so I’m happy to start reading it this week.
One week left until my brother comes to visit!
