Today was my last day of school until September and I’m definitely on ‘Cloud 9’ because we all know what no more school means for me – more time to read books!
To start the holidays off right, I went to the Children’s Hospital Book Market at St. Vital Mall (on now until tomorrow!) and pops and I picked up a few gems. Now, I generally classify book market week as the most wonderful time of year (besides Christmas, obviously, because you all know how much I love Christmas), but I’ll admit to dropping the ball this year. The sale started on Tuesday and by the time dad and I got there yesterday, a lot of books by the authors we tend to read were already gone. We were a little bummed, armed as we were with our lists of books by authors so that we could fill in the holes in series we own, but managed to look on the bright side of things and explore new titles. We walked away with six new treasures (dad calls them ‘mercy buys’) so that we could support this worthy cause. As you head into the weekend, consider stopping by the mall and perusing the tables upon tables of wonderful books longing to be read!
I’m heading out of town tomorrow for a weekend of fun and relaxation (and shopping!) and can’t wait to start Kimberly McCreight’s newest release, Where They Found Her.
It’s sure to be a thrilling mystery and I am looking forward to having time to fully immerse myself in the story on my road trip (trust me, I won’t be driving – safety first, kids!).
Over the summer, I’ll also be developing a new project that I’ll be unveiling in autumn! Fun stuff! So stay tuned, my dear loyal readers, as exciting things are happening. Although school has come to an end, I will still check in on the blog whenever I can and entertain you with all things bookish throughout the summer. You’ve all been an amazing support and I’ve loved chatting with you about books and life and all things literary.
Happy reading, much love, and many thanks,
