"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?

I can't believe another week has been here and gone.  Only 10 weeks and 5 days until my due date.  Hard to believe it's coming up so "fast."  It'll be here before we know it. 
We worked on Anthony's new dresser this weekend.  We're redoing an older dresser that my hubby had growing up, and it's turned into a bit more work then we originally inspected.  We got it primed this weekend though, and he should be able to spray it with the paint this coming week and put the finish on it.  Once that's done, we'll do the headboard to match and then hopefully get the room all put together.  I'm excited to see how it all comes together.  It's sock monkey themed, and I'm really hoping that Anthony feels comfortable in there.  Once that's all done, I can take care of the last minute touch ups to the nursery and put baby girl's clothes away and start washing up all the newborn stuff, like the bouncy seat cover and swing cover.  So much to do and so little time!
Reading wise, I had a really good week.  I read some really good books, including the first in the Debbie Macomber Cedar Cove series.  I was hesitant at first because I didn't enjoy her new series, but I really enjoyed 16 Lighthouse Lane.  I'm looking forward to checking out the rest of the series.  Here's what I read this week:

I was sad to finish up the Southern Roads trilogy, and the Booktown mystery series, but I'm happy to say that the next Booktown book will be released in July, during my summer maternity leave.  Yay!!

Here's what I hope to wrap up this last week of March:

This poor book has been here three weeks in a row now.  Too many other books just keep coming my way and keep me from finishing it!
I'm about a third of the way through this one already, and really enjoying it.  I'm so glad I discovered cozy mysteries this year!
So far, I've tried listening to this one on audio,and then reading the print version.  Neither one is really hitting home, but I'm going to try to push through it and see if it gets better for me.  I don't think I'll be trying anymore Amelia Peabody books though.

Anne of Green Gables is my audio book choice for the week.  I don't remember if I ever read this one as a girl, and I'm looking forward to reading about Anne's adventures.  I do remember the PBS movie that was one when I was younger, and very much enjoyed it!  As for the others, these are all cozy mysteries that I'm giving a try, trying to find a new series I enjoy as much as the Booktown books!

Isn't it amazing how fast a pregnancy goes by, like it suddenly changes / happens when you're not paying attention? You have some great books on your list, there, I need to add some of those to my TBR :)

Here's my It's Monday post for this week.

Happy reading, and good luck on finishing up with the baby-room!

Your cozy mystery choices look like they will all be fun to read. I hope you enjoy them and have fun with all the preparations for the new baby too. Come see what I read at Inside of a Dog. Have a great reading week!

Anne of Green Gables was my favorite series as a young girl - I loved those books. I recently decided to reread them and got the audio for books 1-3 and loved them just as much. I read all the books in the Cedar Cove series and liked them. Did you know that there's going to be a tv series of them on the Hallmark Channel sometime this summer? I can't wait to watch it!

Have a great week and I hope you'll come see what I've been reading at Always With a Book.

I am currently reading Anne of Green Gables for my book club. I had not read this as a child although I am familiar with the story from waching the popular televisin mini-series. The book is so charming. I am really enjoying it. I keep meaning to read a "cozy mystery" but haven't yet. It sounds like a wonderful genre. Have a great week!
