Brrrr…. I hope everyone is staying warm today. It was colder in Atlanta this morning than in both Anchorage and Reykjavîk. All I want to do is snuggle in my favorite chair with Holly and knit. I’m making good progress on my Coatigan (pictured above), but it’s going to have to warm up a little for me to wear this as a coat! …and I guess it’s ok that’s the only unraveling I have to report 🙂
On the reading front, I finished two 4-star books this week:
What a delightful new series! Historical fiction with a bit of mystery and intrigue and a smart, strong female lead. I enjoyed learning about India and the 1920’s setting. Look forward to reading #2 next year.
So grateful to Maria Popova’s Brain Picking for the introduction (https://www.brainpickings.org/2015/04…). Julavits writes beautifully. I enjoyed each of the entries in this cleverly crafted “diary”. This book must be savored. I’m proud of myself for taking a full three weeks to read it!
Widows reminded me that I haven’t read Maisie Dobbs in a while. I put the next few books in the series on my Hold list and was delighted to see this morning that two are ready to pickup. Sadly, they’re not the next two in the series, but hopefully those will be there soon, too.
Hope only good things are unraveling in your world this week. Head on over to Kat’s to see what everyone else is up to!
