Wasn’t that a song?
Ok…I just finished a nice workout while Den zipped to Weggieman’s. They have this new bread…Honey Crisp Apple Bread…that we really want to try. We also love their 27 Grains As Well As Seeds Bread. I love toast…and my lovely little Wolfie Toaster Oven makes amazing toast…the bread gets toasted on one side and is perfect! I think I could live on peanut butter toast or toast and tomato sandwiches. Sigh! Toasted cheese…toast and avocado…toast and honey…toast and egg salad…toast and tuna salad…toast and salad! Apparently my list of toasted stuff appears to be endless!
Books…what I read and didn’t read over the weekend while Super Bowl took over my life.
I totally DNF’d this book. I pretty much disliked it. I rarely do this to a book but this one took me by surprise. Characters were awful…plot was unrecognizable…I was struggling. Really struggling…I know a book is an author’s precious gift to readers but…I could not read this one…
I needed something totally different so I started reading this one. Cora is the star of this show and a puzzle solving lady who hates puzzles. This book is highly entertaining mostly because Cora is kind of dry and acerbic? This is the 19th book in this series but my first one…I would definitely read more.
I am also reading The Hazel Wood…it’s soooo good I can’t stand it! Fairytales…an astranged grandmother, mother and daughter and a big old isolated family home.
Welcome to Melissa Albert’s The Hazel Wood―the fiercely stunning contemporary fantasy with six starred reviews everyone is raving about:
“Thoroughly, creepily captivating.” ―Kristin Cashore, author of Graceling and Jane, Unlimited
“Will be your next obsession.” ―Stephanie Garber, author of Caraval
“Destined to be a classic.” ―Kami Garcia, author of The Lovely Reckless
“Breathtaking.” ―Seanan McGuire, author of Every Heart a Doorway
“Mesmerizing.” ―Karen McManus, author of One of Us Is Lying
“One of the best books I’ve read in years.” ―Jennifer Niven, author of All the Bright Places
Once I finish both of these I want to read one of these…I am in a fantasy mood this week. The Wicker King is especially appealing to me.
We did not have a Super Bowl Party but with Den we don’t really need one…he is the party…he shouts, he yells, he cheers, he screams…I have even seen him tear up over a football game…and everything he does is very loud! However…he is fun to watch because he loves football so much. I think i might have mentioned that he grew up in Colorado and loves the Broncos but since we live near Philadelphia he loves the Eagles, too. So…yesterday was even more exciting…for him!
We did not even get to bed until close to midnight. Roxie could not be awakened this morning…it was too funny…we were actually worried about her but she was simply sleeping off the Super Bowl with her big sister!
Have an awesome Monday!
