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?
Ozzy, Jagger and Astonish Me.
It has been a few weeks since I have been able to read for a whole day. Now that Jagger is strong enough to get in the bed, the boys and I have mapped out a fantastic Read-a-thon and Cuddle-thon day. We have been up for hours and have already finished a contemporary romance book. (Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie.) We will be conquering these four books next:
Harry Potter and the Cursed Child by J. K. Rowling and Jack Thorns (a play)
The Curse of Beauty by James Bone (a biography)
Love Medicine by Louise Erdrich (historical fiction)
The Vanishing Year by Kate Moretti (contemporary thriller)
Yes, I believe in balance when it comes to reading and I am covering several genres today! Yay! Even my boys are so excited that it was difficult to pose for a picture, but we managed.
Jagger, Ozzy and four books.
Tell me how you are spending your Sunday?
“Give me a room whose every nook is dedicated to a book.”
This sounds like my ideal room!
Sundays are meant for reading! Today, I have been catching up on a couple of different books that I had partially read, including last month’s Read with Ariesgrl book. Jagger was very needy today. He wanted one-on-one attention and play time, so my reading was spotty today.
Tell me, what great books you have read this weekend!

How have you been celebrating National Book Lover’s Day? I spent some precious time cuddling with my Jagger, this morning. I thought today would be the ideal day to start a romance book about books! (Love Literary Style by Karin Gillespie.) Tonight, as I have tried to write this post, he has been wanting my full attention, Ozzy has moved my computer away from me and the internet has crashed. So I am calling it an early night, tonight, my fellow book lovers.
Let me know how you celebrated the day!
