"Before you, Bella, my life was like a moonless night. Very dark, but there were stars, points of light and reason. ...And then you shot across my sky like a meteor. Suddenly everything was on fire; there was brilliancy, there was beauty. When you were gone, when the meteor had fallen over the horizon, everything went black. Nothing had changed, but my eyes were blinded by the light. I couldn’t see the stars anymore. And there was no more reason, for anything."

What are you reading??


Oh what another long week.  Monday was hubby's grandmother's funeral.  Tuesday I went back to work, and I'm pretty sure that the next four days were the slowest of my entire life.  On Saturday, I spent the day with some wonderful friends wondering around IKEA, and buying all sorts of fun stuff for Anthony's big boy room.  Now I just need to find the energy to start painting.  I woke up on Sunday to a very sick little boy.  The flu's been going around, and it looks like he finally caught it.  I spent the day scrubbing floors and changing pj's.  Hubby gave multiple baths, and watched several hours of Veggie Tales as they laid on the couch together.  He seems to be a feeling a little better, and kept some pretzels down so here's hoping we're out of the woods.

Reading wise, I had a really good week.  I read some great books and was able to mark a few off the hold TBR list.  Here's what I finished this week:

I adored True Love and Other Disasters and The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.  I absolutely hated Safe Haven, which was a disappointment since I normally really enjoy Nicholas Sparks.

This coming week lookings like it should have plenty of reading time available, so I'm looking forward to be able to sit back and relax with some good books.  Here's what the week holds:

 
I'm not 100% sure yet about Cinder, as it is completely out of my reading box, but I'm going to give it a try as I've heard really, really good things about it!

Charlaine Harris' series is really good. I have read until book five. Cinder is on my tbr. Nothing to Fear but Ferrets makes me curious. I'm a new follower.
