Happy Friday! I decided my weekend reading should be all YA/middle grade. A few are library books, and the rest I‘ve had on my shelves for quite some time now.

Lunchtime reading with Charlie Bird! I‘m excited to read this one!

hgrimes omg he‘s so cute!!! I used to have a parakeet that looked just like him when I was a kid. His name was Lima Bean. In fact, I went through 3 Lima Beans because his wife, Banana Peel (a yellow parakeet) lived to an advanced age and I didn‘t want her to know her Lima Bean died. 2w
Allietaylor16 @hgrimes that is so precious! 2w

I decided to take advantage of the $1.99 Kindle deal! I‘ve heard such good things, and I think I‘m doing my bookcase a favor by not adding another 800 page book to it!

Right now I cannot think of a better pairing than an ARC of the new Erin Morgenstern and a frozen margarita from one of my favorite restaurants.
