It’s a cold and rainy morning here in Southern California: perfect spring weather. The kids have been up since about three o’clock waiting to open their Easter baskets and see which books and candy they received. Which means I’m a little tired right now!
I’m currently on spring break so I’m reading as much as I can. This morning I finished Please Look After Mom by Kyung-Sook Shin. It was an amazing read that had me a little teary at times. I also read The Violets of March by Sarah Jio, which was an absorbing read. Hours flew by as I sat and read the story of forbidden love affairs and family secrets. Last week I also finished two graphic novels: Empire State by Jason Shiga and Page by Paige by Laura Lee Gulledge along with several children’s books.
This morning I started Zita The Spacegirl by Ben Hatke. It’s a graphic novel that has been on my list for months. I also just started re-reading American Gods by Neil Gaiman. It’s fantastic. The first time I read it was on audio now I’m toting around a huge hardcover. I have a nice stack of e-books, paperbacks, and audio books to read this week. Being on spring break gives me permission to read as much as I want and I’m taking advantage of it. I’m hoping to read at least 10 books this week. We’ll see how I do.
I hope everyone is having a great Sunday. What are you reading today?
