Reading progress update: I've read 35 out of 384 pages.
The Tea Girl of Hummingbird Lane - Lisa See

Lisa See is my favorite author. I am always enchanted by her novels. So much so that I preordered this book, something i never do. So far, very interesting. 

 

 

When she replied to my post on Facebook I practically cried. 

 

 

It's not often I get excited about a book. And I know this will not disappoint.

I'm behind in my challenge this year from all the illness. So, I'm sort of cheating and knocking out these Sailor Moon books. Each book has 3 "episodes". They are pretty decent for being junior novels. The second one had a few grammatical errors, but other than that, they seem true to the comics. Very 90s. But cool. They are making some references that make me cringe, like Furby and CK and Hilfiger. Wow. Blast from the past.

Caraval - Stephanie G. Garber

This might be me being overly critical, but Scarlett hasn't eaten anything in days. And she doesn't seem hungry. Am I the only one noticing she's not eating while competing in Caraval?

Queen of Kings - Maria Dahvana Headley

I love Egyptian mythology, so I'm enjoying this a lot. The romance is breaking my heart. 

 

In real life, my house is back in order. The dishwasher is fixed, the carpet is reinstalled. The super flu has finally left us. We have paid off some debt with our taxes, ordered a new love seat that's supposed to arrive in a couple of weeks, and we are taking a trip back to Tennessee to see my daddy next week. Pray I don't get sick again. It's been a winter full of illness. I'm so far behind on my reading because I keep getting whatever virus of the week. 

 

I'm excited to visit home tho. I haven't seen my dad in 2 years. It's expensive to make an 8 hour drive. It requires finding animal sitters and gas money and vacation time. But Jake is on spring break so we're off. It should be a nice bit of relaxing. My dad doesn't have any furniture except his own bed and 2 recliners. Hahaha. Looks like we will be sleeping on air mattresses. 

 

 

My books came in!!

Quick note of apology

I haven't been regularly updating on BookLikes in a while, so I have a backlog of reviews to add so there might be a temporary influx of posts from me on your feed.  Apologies!
