Welcome to the Weekend Book Buzz! It’s still the weekend somewhere in the world, right? We’re one week into a two-week absence of Daddy in our household, so blogging has taken a lower priority this week. But they say ‘better late than never’, and so here’s all your bookish news, even if it is Monday afternoon in Australia!
