In My Reading Life
Last week, I finished The Smell of Other People’s Houses by Bonnie-Sue Hitchcock. I think this is my new favorite book of 2018. Then I read It’s Like This, Cat by Emily Cheney Neville. Then I read . . . And Now Miguel by Joseph Krumgold. Both of those were different levels of disappointing. Right now, I’m reading Dome of the Hidden Pavilion: New Poems by James Tate. I’m thinking about DNFing it. It’s weird and funny, but I’m not sure what I’m supposed to be getting out of reading it.

In The Rest Of My Life
Five things that made me happy last week:
- The blog had a mini-makeover. You’re not going crazy. Things do look slightly different.
- I came up with a new posting schedule for the blog. Hopefully this one will have less self-imposed stress.
- I realized that I finished a lot of books in March. They weren’t all good books, but they’re no longer sitting on my TBR shelf.
- I reached 1300 Twitter followers.
- Rice Krispy treats. Yes, adults can eat those, too. Don’t judge. You know you want one.
Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other! See you around the blogosphere!
