My reading this morning is a little on the dry side. We're starting a program for my oldest and his anxiety. I have to read up on my portion before we start his portion after school. It's going to be a long process, but I'm really hoping it helps him.

I made a huge dent in the cleaning while my little guy was napping! Now I'm sitting down with some lunch and rewarding myself with a chapter or two. I'm really enjoying this one so far (about 100 pages in), though I already have my suspicions about what is happening. #LunchTimeReading

Trying to find an interesting audiobook on either Hoopla or Overdrive today. I have tons of #audiocleaning to do. It's Thanksgiving weekend here this weekend and I'm hosting, but my house is currently a wreck. Need to find something to keep me going!

Mdargusch I love Liane Moriarty audiobooks. They always make me laugh out loud. And the narrator is excellent. 5d
Hestapleton This book made me laugh until I cried on audio! 5d
sherryvdh @Mdargusch @Hestapleton Thanks! I'll keep an eye out for those! 5d
Readswithcoffee The Harry Potter audiobooks are narrated by Jim Dale who is a voice master. I also like the Inspector Gamache series by Louise Penny. I LOVE audiobooks! 5d

Zoo City | Lauren Beukes
Pickpick

I'm so unsure about how to rate this book. I was enthralled right off the bat, but then about 1/4 of the way in, things seemed to wane. Between 1/2 and 3/4 through, it picked up again and I couldn't put it down. The end left me wanting to know more. It was definitely an intriguing world, and I haven't read too many books set in South Africa, so the setting felt new to me. Overall, I'd say it was a pick.

1. 64/75 Almost there!
2. My husband broke my toe on our first date.
3. 🤷‍♀️ It's more about the lyrics and how I feel than about the genre. Probably more pop and rock than other genres in my playlists though.
4. The broken toe happened 19 years ago in January.

It has been a week for the books! We were without power for almost 4 days after the storm, and further cell/internet issues during and after. The last couple of days have been crazy busy trying to play catch up with chores that went undone during our power outage. All I want to do is #CurlUpAndRead. Last load of laundry just went in, so I'm grabbing 15 minutes before I have to pick up the eldest boy. Hope everyone's had a stellar week!

I'm reading by oil lamp this evening, while everyone else sleeps around me in the livingroom. Hurricane Dorian is still wreaking its havoc outside, the power hasbeen out since mid-afternoon, and we distracted the boys with a family sleep over in the livingroom. I've had lots of time to read today, and I'm not ready to put it down yet. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend! #WhenTheTitleSuitsTheWeather

Grabbing a little mommy time before I need to get supper ready. I've been anxiously awaiting this book to come in from the library, and the timing couldn't have been better. I wasn't sure I'd recall enough of the previous book. It dove right back into the action, and I'm all in. #SixthWorld #ThisSeriesIsSoGood

I've decided to flip back and forth between this and The Devourers. I'm feeling really unfocused with my reading the last week or two, so rather than forcing myself to read one book, I'm giving myself room to float around. It's not my usual way of doing things, but these 2 books are likely different enough that I won't confuse the plots. #InspectorGamache #StartingANewRead #WildAndCrazySaturdayNight

The Wolves of Winter | Tyrell Johnson
Mehso-so

It took me a while to get into because I found the writing choppy. Once I got used to the style, I devoured about 3/4 of it in 24 hours. I also found the end felt a bit rushed for me. That being said, I'd pick up another book by this author if the plot intrigued me, seeing as this was a debut novel and it was an enjoyable read overall.

I listened to this at the exact moment I needed it most. The past month or two, stresses and anxiety have been getting the better of me, and the mom guilt has been riding high. This book was the perfect reminder that I'm not alone and that I don't have to be perfect. It left me feeling optimistic and more confident than I've felt in weeks. I may need to get a hard copy that I can mark up and use when I need a pick me up.

It seems every time I read a book with a wazir in it, I always find him less than likeable. I'd love to find a book with a likeable (or female) wazir.
That being said, I'm loving this audio so far! I'm finding the characters intriguing, and the relationship dynamics between some of the characters is relatable to me. I've been very stressed and anxious the past month or so, and this is a great diversion from the overwhelming feelings.

StayCurious I can‘t get over this cover ❤️ 4mo

After having a sick toddler all week, I really need to get things done, including some penpal responses. Hope everyone has a great weekend (and a great long weekend for those who have one this weekend)!
