Weekend Book Buzz – 3/4 February 2018

Weekend Book Buzz

Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! I hope you’ve had a chance to stick your head in a good book this weekend. Our family went to the cricket in Sydney this weekend—a two hour drive each way from where we live—but it certainly didn’t stop some of us from getting some reading done. And I’m not just talking about myself!

Abbie at cricketThis is my youngest reading at the cricket. It seems she’s taken at least one piece of her mother’s wisdom to heart: Never go anywhere without a book! I didn’t even know she’d brought one with her, but apparently she packed it in her backpack, just in case. That’s my girl! 😊 (It’s Horton Hears a Who for those of you who are squinting and trying to read the cover. And I know you are. Don’t bother denying it! 😁)

Do you take a book with you everywhere, just in case? If you’re looking for some suggestions (and lots more bookish news besides), you’ve come to the right place!

  1. Thanks for the update! I entered a Goodreads give-away (fingers crossed!). I was curious to see your thoughts on YOU’RE THE CREAM IN MY COFFEE. I thought it was a good little read, too. I really enjoyed the 1920s era and the details to set the time period. My grandparents lived in Chicago, so I was familiar with Marshall Fields and enjoyed that aspect of the story, too. The author has another book coming out, but I can’t remember when. Thanks for keeping my TBR healthy (or not!). LOL I try not to stress over it. 🙂
