• Something SUPER AWESOME BUT ALSO REALLY TERRIBLE happened this week: I decided to try a new restaurant. Matt and I were both too exhausted to cook and every day I pass a new Chinese place on my way home from work. No-brainer, right? Turns out, the food wasn’t just good, it was fantastic…and now I want to eat there ALL the time and it would be SO easy to stop every single day after work help
• I’m definitely a morning person and it’s getting a little out of control. I’m usually up between 5:30 and 6, but yesterday I needed to be up at 4:30. My internal clock is so insane that this morning I work up at 4:30 without an alarm – not that I needed to be up and Matt would probably kill me if I did set an alarm for that early lol. I love having a few hours to myself when Bay is still asleep, Matt’s still in bed, and it’s just me with a book or doing blog stuff. It’s the best!
• ugh I’ve been stuck in a reading rut lately and it’s so hard not to compare where I am now (38 books for the year) with where I was last year – I read 200 books in 2016 and I KNOW that will never happen again but I can’t shake the feeling that I suck with my reading right now.
• MISSED SOMETHING THIS WEEK? Eva Marie Everson’s latest, The One True Love of Alice-Ann is hands down one of my top reads of the year. WWII, a sixteen-year-old girl hopelessly in love with her brother’s best friend and determined to tell him before he leaves for war. This is definitely a coming of age novel as Alice-Ann grows up and realizes several things about love and the nature of those around her. I rambled on and on about this one in my review. ♥ So lovely.
Lucinda Riley’s The Shadow Sister has it all: mysterious origins, clues that lead halfway around the world, Beatrix Potter.
