Literary Friday ya’ll….


Well, it’s been forever since I blogged. Book Expo was fun and I got some great books and had a nice time in NYC ( a recap to come… at some point!)

1. In good family news, my mom got some wonderful news from the doctor- no cancer in her lymph nodes and no more radiation and she won’t have to have chemo. We go to doctor next week to get started on a medicine that she will have to take for the next 5-10 years, but all in all, things are going good and relief is felt throughout the house. And another gentle reminder: Schedule your mammogram πŸ™‚


2. One my #FridayReads:

Thanks to @jkscommunications, I’ve got my next read! #partner . . About The Night Visitors: "ALICE gets off a bus in the middle of a snowstorm in Delphi, NY. She is fleeing an abusive relationship and desperate to protect… OREN, ten years old, a major Star Wars fan and wise beyond his years. Though Alice is wary, Oren bonds nearly instantly with… MATTIE, a social worker in her fifties who lives in an enormous run-down house in the middle of the woods. Mattie lives alone and is always available, and so she is the person the hotline always calls when they need a late-night pickup. And although according to protocol Mattie should take Alice and Oren to a local shelter, instead she brings them home for the night. She has plenty of room, she says. What she doesn't say is that Oren reminds her of her little brother, who died thirty years ago at the age of ten. But Mattie isn't the only one withholding elements of the truth. Alice is keeping her own secrets. And as the snowstorm worsens around them, each woman's past will prove itself unburied, stirring up threats both within and without." . . Have you read this book? It’s been in my pile for awhile, but because of life here lately- I’m behind on my normal amount of reading. . . #Thriller, #Suspense, #Psychologicalthriller, #PsychologicalFiction #genxbookstagrammers #booksofIG

3. Walking on The High Line in NYC (and let it be known that I will rarely pass up an opportunity for a selfie πŸ™‚


4. Saw Frozen on Broadway and it was AMAZING. When Elsa reveals her sparkling dress during Let It Go- I got a teeny bit emotional- the music was swelling and this gorgeous dress was revealed and it was SO good.


5. Hanging out with new and old friends at Book Expo is half the fun of going πŸ™‚


6. My Book Expo stack…



What are you reading and doing this weekend? The pool and books are calling my name πŸ™‚


Happy Reading and Bookishly Yours,

    • I am so excited about her news. We go this week to meet with a doctor about the meds she’ll have to take and I’m eager to hear what they will say. I am also VERY excited about the books I picked up at Expo. I’ve got some great reading ahead of me πŸ™‚

    • Thank you SO much!!! It’s been a whirlwind here- I got back from Expo, then we went to the doctor on the 3rd, then she heard about her ONCO score, then new appointments scheduled!!!!!

      Also, now Jerry is missing 😦 😦 First, Sir Thomas and now Jerry. 😦
