Let’s Discuss… Endings!

Hi Everyone,

How do you like your books to end? Do you like Happily Ever Afters or at least an ending that wraps everything up in a nice, neat package?

What are You Reading?

Hi Everyone,

I had a rough health week, so sadly, I didn’t read as much as I had planned. Therefore today, I will be finishing up two books and reading Astonish Me by Maggie Shipstead. The weather outside is quite lovely, but my boys decided we should read in bed, today. They impatiently waited, while I gathered my things. I hope everyone affected by Hermine is safe and dry.

What are you reading this weekend?

Enjoy!
