Cheers to the Weekend 4.7.18

The April showers are in full effect around here, but we're trying enjoy all the time indoors, knowing this is the last of it. Reading and endless cups of hot tea are just the ticket! Spring is slowly showing up outside and we're anxiously awaiting more sun and the warm, dry days that we know are just ahead.

If your current TBR needs a springy refresh, there's a list for every genre in this list of New Reads for a New Season

Having watched this TED Talk for class recently, I feel the power of diverse literature more than ever.

A recent article on Maggie O'Farrell's memoir, I Am I Am I Am. If you haven't read it yet, check this out, we both loved it and highly recommend it.

These satirical book covers had us snorting our coffee out of our noses laughing.

What We're Reading This Week 

Michaela - I broke out of the reading slump that had been plaguing me the past 2 months, and devoured both My Kitchen Year and All The Names They Used For God. I'm kicking off the weekend with a fresh read (one I've been anticipating picking up for actual years) called Children of Earth and Sky by Guy Gavriel Kay who is my very favorite author!

Rikki - I just finished Digging In for a virtual book club; not my fave, just a little fun entertaining story. I am starting my final assigned reading, The Red Umbrella, and I'm still soaking in all the great YA I've read the last few months. Lastly, I'm finally getting to Lincoln in the Bardo, as well as Flannery O'Connor's short stories,  A Good Man is Hard to Find on audio. So far, so good!
