Three years

It’s been almost three years since my last post. To say that time flies is such a cliché, but it’s the truth. In three years, my youngest has went from being a newborn to a bouncy toddler. My oldest kids are mostly in high school and life has changed so much. I went from a being a stay-at-home mom to a library clerk and undergrad.

Yet through it all I’ve often thought about writing, about coming back to this blog or finding someone (anyone!) I can discuss books and reading with. I’ve wondered how my blogging friends are doing, what are they up to, and are they still blogging. At times, I’ve found myself on your blogs, peeking in a bit.

I think it’s time for me to come back to blogging. Or at least dip my toe in the waters again. I can’t wait to really see what you all have been up to.


Reading:// I’m currently in the middle of Wayétu Moore’s She Would Be King. It’s about the lives of three people gifted with heightened abilities and the creation of Liberia. The book is filled with magical realism. The book’s pace has been slow in places, while sometimes I can’t turn the pages fast enough. It’s beautiful and devastating.

Preparing://For my week. I’ve realized that when I sit down on Sundays to prepare for my week, gather my thoughts, and figure out what I need to accomplish, my week happens more smoothly. I have less hiccups and when the unexpected happens, I’m not caught off guard.

What are you up to today? What are you reading/doing/thinking about?

  1. Welcome back! I’m spending my Sunday thinking about the coming week, too. I wonder if Sunday Salon posts would help. I’m reading Ferguson’s Fault Lines for our book club.

    1. Thank you ! I looked up Ferguson’s Fault Lines and it sounds really interesting. I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it.

  2. It’s so good to see you back on here! I heard a lot about She Would Be King at Book Expo and look forward to your thoughts once you’ve finished it.

  3. Hooray! Happy to see you blogging again! It’s a rainy day here so I’m hoping to do some reading and also some cleaning up of our hallway closet which is full of junk.

  4. Lovely to see you back here … I’m working this Sunday, but I’ll do some pleasure reading later tonight.

  5. What I am up to at this very moment is being ridiculously excited that you’re blogging again!!! 🙂
    I’m reading Helen Oyeyemi’s What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours and Hawkeye/Kate Bishop comics.
    (This is Debi, btw.)

      1. Oh Natasha, I’ve missed you too!!! I’m loving Oyeyemi’s stories! I admit that sometimes I’m not quite sure what’s going on, but it doesn’t even matter because I’m so enchanted by her writing and her storytelling. I really, really need to read more of her novels (Boy Snow Bird is the only one I’ve read so far.)

  6. Oh, friend! I missed you! I am so thrilled to see you posting, especially about a book that I, too, am super excited to read! Oh how wonderful it will be to have you back blogging. If the internet were in person, I would be embracing you so enthusiastically right now.

  7. I was so excited to see a post from you! Time keeps moving on but books are our constant right? Looking forward to hearing more from you and wishing a wonderful 2019!

  8. Ah, it was so good to see a post from you pop up in my feed reader! I’m glad to see you’re dipping your toes back into the water. I did about two years of toe dipping before I fully returned to book blogging.

    A friend raved about ‘She Would Be King’ on GoodReads. With you echoing her sentiments, I’ll definitely have to check this one out.
