Currently reading: I managed to read some of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson and for a minute I thought I might finish it. But that didn’t happen. I’m getting really close, though!
I got through very little of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey this week. I’ve been really tired and not sleeping well so time to read before bed has gone away. I’m trying to commit to sleeping more so we’ll see if I can make more time!
I started Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati! I’m still on the prologue, but I’ll get there. It’s so fun to start something new.

41JYZlm4QsLRecently finished: I finished Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie on Saturday! I’m so glad to have finally finished this. I gave it Three out of Five Stars. I hope to write the book review this weekend and have it for you all early next week! It can be hard to find time with the Baby, but I’ll try to sneak away during a nap or pass them off to Dad for a little bit and sneak away.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: If I can keep making some progress with my ebook, I should be able to start A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman soon! Remaining optimistic.

Kelly

Currently reading: I don’t think I read any of The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson again. I wish this book grabbed me more so I had a reason to push forward with it, but it hasn’t demanded my attention as some have.
I read a chapter from True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey which felt great! I’d love to make more progress with this one since I’ve enjoyed it a lot. Hopefully I can keep that up.
The weather has finally started to turn warm so I’ve been able to listen to Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie while running consistently. I’m so close! I know I’ll have this one finished next week.

Recently finished: I’m feeling confident I’ll have something next week!

51FUsCV0vdLReading next: I’ll get to A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman. Eventually
I’m really hopeing I’ll start Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati next week. It seems like a good time to start a nice long audiobook.

Ghost

Currently reading: I didn’t read The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. I know I’m really close to finishing it, I just haven’t had any good time for an ebook so it’s lingering. If I can find a good time in my schedule to open it consistently, it will finish quickly, but I haven’t found a good time for that.
I did get through some of True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I’ve been making an effort to read a few pages before bed each night and it’s great to see some progress here!
It’s been nice enough (between snow storms) for some running so I’ve made progress with Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie, too! I’ve got about 10% left in the audio. Here’s hoping it stays nice enough to finish it up soon!

Recently finished: Optimism, optimism.

91tzXN8Fp0LReading next: Here’s hoping I get to A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman some time in March. We’ll see if I can make that happen.
With the summer rolling around, I think I can get to  Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati soon. It’s just a matter of how long it will take to finish once I start.

Currently reading: I didn’t open The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson. It was one of those weeks where I blinked and it was gone. It’s one of those weeks I’m surprised I had time to write this!
I read nothing in True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey either. Our house got hit hard by a stomach bug so it was a lot of sleep, naps, and TV time on the couch. Luckily, everyone is better now so I’m optimistic about next week!
I don’t think I grabbed any time for Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie either. We finally have spring weather and I was hoping to go for a run, but the stomach bug doesn’t lend it self well to that. Maybe next weekend?

Recently finished: I’m sure no one is surprised to have me say ‘Maybe next week’ here. I’ll stay optimistic.

51FUsCV0vdLReading next: I’ll push A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman another week. I’m sure this will all happen eventually, but life has pulled me in other directions right now.
At this pace, it will take me a year to finish Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati. Maybe summer sports and time out of the house will give me some more listening time.

Currently reading: I didn’t really have a lot of time for The Girl with Ghost Eyes by M.H. Boroson this week. It felt like the week flew by since my partner had some big work deadlines and I had my hands full with Baby. Things should slow down a bit now so I hope to get back to this.
I made some minor progress with True History of The Kelly Gang by Peter Carey. I try to read at least two pages each night and I even finished a chapter last week!
Unfortunately, there was snow again so I got to listen to some of Tabula Rasa by Ruth Downie while shoveling. I’m really hoping that’s the end of the snow for this season! I’m getting so tired of shoveling.

Recently finished: I feel like I’ve been saying ‘Maybe next week’ for a month, but I’ll keep with that mantra for another week.

51FUsCV0vdLReading next: I’m remaining optimistic. I hope to have started A House at the Bottom of a Lake by Josh Malerman next week. Keeping my fingers crossed.
With continued optimism, maybe I’ll have started Where the Light Enters by Sara Donati, too! Wouldn’t that be something?
