"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 long, long week.  Work seemed never ending, and every night we had something going on that caused us to be away.  Even Friday night we ended up spending the evening at the grocery store because we just weren't sure when else we'd have a chance to get it done!

I spent Sunday cleaning out hubby and I's closet and rehanging clothes and folding pants.  It had gotten completely out of hand this winter, and took me a better part of four hours to get it completely re-organized.  I was exhausted by the time I was done! 

This week, I have my glucose test for gestational diabetes.  I'm not looking forward to it.  For some reason it almost makes me nervous, and that stuff you have to drink is horribly gross.  We also grabbed the dresser from hubby's parent's this weekend for Anthony's new room.  We need to sand it down and repaint it and also paint the headboard so they match.  Once that is completed, we can start moving his clothes and stuff into that room and getting him situated.  Then I just need to start getting all of baby girl's stuff done.  Only 12 weeks to go.  It'll be here before we know it!

Reading wise, I fnished up four books this week:

 

I'm really enjoying the Stephanie Bond series, and I'm quickly making my way through the Booktown mysteries.  Unfortunately, I wasn't overly impressed with Debbie Macomber's book, but I'm going to give the Cedar Cove series a try and see if I enjoy that better.

Here's what I have going on this week:

This is a leftover from last week.  I have this one started and I'm about half finished and then other books started calling my name and I got distracted.  This is part of the Bridgerton series which I'm really enjoying and I hope to finish this one this week.

The third in the Southern Roads trilogy, I can't wait to finish this one up.  These books have really surprised me by how much I've enjoyed them!





I'm hoping for a great reading week.  What are you reading this week?

The bookish mysteries always look interesting. I prefer cozy mysteries. Is there a similar series that you would recommend?

Looks like you have some nice books lined up, and I can relate to the busy week that prevents you to read. I did not get a lot of reading done either! (although you actually finished books this week, I did not manage that :-)

Have a good week,
kind regards,

The Booktown mysteries sound like great cozy reads. I have never read Stephanie Bond but I must say the cover art looks nice! Have a great week.
Happy Reading,

I did the gestational diabetes test just a few weeks ago. The drink was not as bad as I remembered and it helped that my little guy cheered me on as I drank it!

Have a great week and enjoy your books! :)
