"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??

What a beautiful evening!  I'm sitting here writing this, with my window open, enjoying a cool spring breeze.  I'm also ignoring the fact that it's supposed to be 30 degrees and snowing by Wednesday. 

We had a wonderful weekend.  The weather was perfect, reaching almost 65 degrees today.  Hubby cleaned up the back yard, and put down some wood chips to help with the mud until we can weed and mulch and clean out the flower beds closer to summer.  After his nap this afternoon, we took Anthony outside to play.  We played with sidewalk chalk, swung on the swing set, practiced our golf swing, and slide down the slide.  We also ran after balls in the yard.  Well him and hubby ran, I more so waddled after them at nearly 7 months pregnant.  But we had a wonderful wonderful time!

Because of the weather, I spent more time outside running around than reading, but I still had a rather productive week.  I finished and reviewed the following:

I thoroughly enjoyed all four books, and I'm looking forward to continuing both series in the coming week.  I'm also looking for some more good cozy mystery series to read since I'm only a few books away from being completely caught up on the Booktown Mysteries.
This week I have a few more good ones on my reading plate.  These first few I've already sunk my teeth into :)
This is my first book by Stephanie Bond.  I had originally started it on audio, but decided that after about 20 minutes, the print version would probably be a better fit.  Thankfully my library had the e book available for download and I'm about a quarter of the way through it.  I started out really disliking the male protagonist, but he's starting to grow on me.  I'm curious to see how this one develops.

I'm already half way through Benedict Bridgerton's story.  It shouldn't take me long to finish this one up as I seem to devour these books!

Also on the list this week
 This will be my first Debbie Macomber book, and I'm really looking forward to it.  I've heard such wonderful things about her!

Well, here's to a happy reading week!

Sounds like a great way to spend an unexpectedly warm day.

A great turn in weather, no wonder you were outside. Hope your last few months go quickly, very exciting. Enjoy the reading week.

I love the Bridgerton series! I still have to read two of them (Eloise and Francesca's stories).

I enjoyed the warmer weather today too. I wish it could just stay that warm and winter would be over...

The Duke & I has been on my TBR shelf for months! I think I need to remedy that, this year. Happy reading!

Love the sound of the Booktown series. Sounds like a quirky read. I read a few knitting mysteries and enjoyed those. Have a great week.

I haven't read any of these, but I definitely have heard of them. I do have a few old paperbacks of Macomber's I'll get to at some point this lifetime.
Here is my Bookish Memes post.
Have a great week!

I want to read the new Debbie Macomber...and I've never read anything by Julia Quinn, but her books look delightful. Enjoy your week.

I love Debbie Macomber - she has some great books. Do try the Cedar Cove series - it's great!!!

I also love reading cozy mysteries and some of my favorites are The Tea Shop Mysteries by Laura Childs, The Domestic Diva mysteries by Krista Davis and the Vintage Magic Mysteries by Annette Blair. I haven't tried the Lorna Barrett ones - will have to add them to my list!

Have a great week!
