Linking up with Kimberly @ Sunday Post and Kathryn @ It’s Monday! What are you reading?
Hello, again! It’s been a looong time since I’ve put together a weekly recap post, so I wanted to check in and say hi. Work at the elementary school is fantastic, and that along with family things keeps me pretty busy.
Spring break starts this week, and I’m just going to ignore the lingering snow on the ground. This Thursday, St. Patrick’s Day, is a special day because it marks my 12th blogging anniversary. Twelve years!!
I wanted to share the wonderful goodies I recently won from Atria Books and Pickled Stamps.
From the publisher I received a lovely copy of THE PARIS LIBRARY by Janet Skeslien Charles that I’m excited to read. And from Pickled Stamps, I received a cool personalized library embosser. I went with “Ex Libris Book of Secrets” since that’s been my bookish identity for so long. Love it!
Now one of my spring break projects is to start embossing the hundreds of books on my shelves! Do you have a library stamp or embosser?
What I’ve Been Reading:
Here are most of the adult books I’ve read during the first quarter of 2022:
THE OVERNIGHT GUEST by Heather Gudenkauf (★★★★★)
BENEATH THE STAIRS by Jennifer Fawcett (★★★★½)
WOULD I LIE TO YOU? by Aliya Ali-Afzal (★★★★½)
THE IT GIRL by Ruth Ware (★★★★) *
ALL I WANT by Darcey Bell (★★★)
THE ACCOMPLICE by Lisa Lutz (★★)

What I’m Currently Reading:
ROAD OF BONES by Christopher Golden
“A stunning supernatural thriller set in Siberia, where a film crew is covering an elusive ghost story about the Kolyma Highway, a road built on top of the bones of prisoners of Stalin’s gulag.”
Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful week! — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪
Hi there Diana! Welcome back to the recap posts! I do try to stay on top of it most weeks. Mostly to keep my own thoughts sorted!! Ha ha!! Working at any school is always hard work. I’ve been teaching the better part of 12 years and your life is always crazy. But filled with fun.
I love that embossed stamp. Gosh, I need to figure out if someone can make me one….
Have a wonderful week ahead and enjoy your spring break!
I read The Overnight Guest also and loved it. I love pretty much every book by Gudenkauf. I just added Beneath the Stairs to my wish to read list. Have a good week.
Congratulations on 12 years of blogging!!
Happy Blogoversary!! How lovely that you have spring break! Ours isn’t until April 4th. I am curious about Road of Bones. Have a wonderful week!
Congrats on your blogging milestone. Those years sure do fly by. My blog will be 14 in June. I see you were not a fan a Vladimir either – that was a DNF at the 51% mark for me. I do want to read the Overnight Guest. Have a great week.
Oooh the Paris Library is on my TBR! I hope you’ll enjoy!
Happy anniversary this week!
Sorry to see the Lisa Lutz was only a two star. I read The PAssenger I think it was by her a few years ago…
Enjoy your spring break! Being out of school/the education field, I don’t get a spring break, however, I am taking a vacation soon, and I can’t wait!
The Paris Library looks really good. Hope you have a great week!
I have a library embosser. They are very cool! Hope you enjoy it!
Good to hear you are enjoying the work at the school. I enjoyed The Paris Library quite a bit, so hope its to your taste too.
Welcome back to the summary posts!
Always fun to win books. Have a great reading week
That supernatural thriller sounds like a good read. Happy blogging anniversary and St. Pat’s Day!
Congratulations on 12 years of blogging! That is awesome! I have been blogging for 10 years, but my book blog is less than a year. Have a great week!
Happy 12 years of blogging! Hope you have a great Spring Break!
I enjoyed The Overnight Guest and have my eye on the Ruth Ware book. Enjoy your week, and here are my WEEKLY UPDATES
I’ve been eyeing those embossers for a while. Then I think how many books I actually buy in print these days which tells me I don’t need an embosser. Happy blogging anniversary. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Hope you enjoy your spring break. And congrats with your 12 years blogging anniversary, that is so impressive! I love Siberia as a setting, so perhaps I should look into Road of Bones.
I love that library embosser! What a cool win! Congratulations on 12 years of blogging!
I’ve enjoyed Heather Gudenkauf in the past so I definitely want to check out The Overnight Guest seeing your 5 stars.
I LOVED Spring Break when I resided in Chicago. Over here the flowers and trees are all blooming, we’ve not seen 1 drop of snow…
Lovely to have you back and happy 12th blogoversary! 🎉 Take care, happy reading and enjoy those prizes! 😃
