Oh, Lord, y’all, the Pathologically Literate home has been overrun with tween boys all weekend long. I cannot wait for Monday to get here so I can have some peace and quiet! Don’t get me wrong – I adore these little guys, these little almost-teenagers trying to act so grown and tough but who still let their little boy sides shine through much of the time. All my life I thought I wanted a daughter some day, when all along it turned out I was best suited for a son. I don’t know what I’d do without The Boy – or his sweet little friends, who have become like family to us. I’ve even managed to get a few of them onto the reading track – ha! My ulterior motives are coming to fruition. Love it! Let’s take a look at what I read this week:

What a week of great reads! Where do I begin? Loteria was so, so powerful and I won’t soon forget it. Truly a must read, folks. The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry was an sweet and enchanting tale that stole my heart. Little Bee… Oh, Little Bee. You know those books that you run across now and then that change you just a little bit at the core of your being? That’s what Little Bee did to me. If you read any book out of the books I’ve brought to you here, make it this one. Alias Grace was an epic tale of a (wrongly?) accused young woman in 1800’s Canada and her trip through the justice system and beyond. Epic as in looong, y’all – but still a good read. Accused was one of my “guilty pleasure” reads, kind of one of those mystery novels that drive themselves along without you having to think too much on your own. I do still like to enjoy one of those from time to time. I just earned some Amazon gift cards from Swagbucks so I’ll be making some purchases soon – can’t wait to start the book shopping later this week!
