Weekly Review – Sunday, March 9, 2014

We’re already on our second week in March, and here in Nebraska, Spring has stopped by to say hello! We’re celebrating here in the Pathologically Literate household by spreading out some blankets in the sunshine and reading some good books, followed by some steaks on the grill for dinner – now, who can beat that? My kind of day, that’s for sure. My reading speed was on overdrive this past week, and I worked through more books than I’d expected, which was a pleasant surprise. Much of the week was spent nursing The Boy back to health from a stomach virus – blech. On the sunny side of things, however, I touched base with an old friend – it was great speaking with her, and I’m delighted to have her in my life again. True friendships are hard to come by, folks, so when you do – treasure them. Nurture them. Don’t let go. All right, y’all that’s enough of my sappy side for today. Let’s take a look at what I was reading this week:

Oh, y’all, did I discover a couple of doozies this week, or what?! OK – these were all good books, so you’d be doing well to read any of them, really, but there are two bright, bright, shiny stars in there that you absolutely must read as soon as possible! The Bear by Claire Cameron is one of the most captivating books I have read in ages. Written from the viewpoint of a five-year-old girl, this novel tells the story of Anna and her two-year-old brother as they struggle to survive in the Canadian wilderness after their parents are killed by a black bear. I could not put this book down. And when I did have to put it down, I could not stop thinking about it until I was able to pick it back up again. It is truly an amazing, amazing novel. Matthew Quick’s The Good Luck of Right Now is another novel that captured my heart this week. Written entirely in a series of letters to actor Richard Gere, this novel is full of humor, heartache, and wisdom beyond belief. Quick is quickly (pun not intended) becoming one of my favorite authors. Don’t pass up the chance to bliss out on these good reads, friends. It’s almost Springtime – live a little!

How did your week go? Hope you had some good reads in there somewhere!

    Clutter Free with Kids? Is that possible?! I have 3 year old twins and a small house. All I have is clutter! Then again, all my books don’t help. You certainly get through a lot of books a week, that’s a great amount of reading…
