Oh, my Lord, y’all. What have I gotten myself into? I hate to be redundant, but for the second week in a row: we have a new member to the Pathologically Literate family this week. Meet Bunny Foo Foo (the bunny in the middle of the above picture). After months and months of negotiation, The Boy won out and this little creature now lives in our home. Y’all, I really hope our house doesn’t start smelling like a zoo. I will move to the shed out back if that happens, you mark my word. Although, out of all the critters, Bunny Foo Foo is the cutest, and has managed to worm her way into my heart just a little bit. The deal is that The Boy is going to do a rabbit project for 4-H, so B.F.F. will be a learning experience as well as a pet. I couldn’t say no to that, could I? While children and bunnies were romping around together, I got a lot of reading done. Let’s take a look:

Last Sunday I picked up The Aviator’s Wife, fearing it would be as stagnant as The Paris Wife was, only to be pleasantly surprised that Melanie Benjamin spun a very well-written and interesting tale about Anne Morrow Lindbergh’s marriage to Charles Lindbergh. That old Lucky Lindy had some issues, that is fo sho, y’all. Brooklyn was a nice little novel about a young Irish immigrant and her experience as she makes her way in America. Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald was nice as well – I really liked that it focused on Zelda’s younger years and her marriage to Scottie-Boy. So much of what I’ve read in the past focuses on the years in which she struggled with mental illness; it was a breath of fresh air to see things from a young Zelda’s point of view. The Winter People was rather spooky, if you ask me – and I’m not too down with spooky. It did still prove to be a good read, however, and that is what’s most important. I’ve got some more great reads lined up for the coming week, as well, and I can’t wait to get started. Happy reading to you all!
