Happy Valentine’s Day! ❤️ Will you be celebrating today? My husband is a fantastic cook, and he’s making spicy fennel pasta for dinner and chocolate pots de crème for dessert. Yum!

This past week was filled with bitterly cold weather and a handful of expensive home repairs. When it rains, it pours, as they say! We added new insulation below our kids’ bedroom floors hoping it will keep them warmer, though not a lot helps when it’s -10°F. 🥶

This gave me a laugh a few days ago. You know how on the Goodreads sidebar it gives you recommendations based on what you’ve read? So mine said “Because you enjoyed Mr. Rochester” and the rec was Storey’s Guide to Raising Chickens. 🐓

I love it!!! 😍 Mr. Rochester is a Jane Eyre prequel of sorts, where the author imagines what Rochester’s life was like before Jane. And, I really did enjoy the book. Why the chicken connection, I don’t know! However, if my homeowner’s association would allow it, I’d love to raise chickens. 🥚 Have you noticed any strange Goodreads recs?

DOWN COMES THE NIGHT is a YA gothic fantasy that I was so excited to get from NetGalley! DISAPPEARING EARTH has been on my wish list forever, and it was recently an eBook deal that I had to grab. Have you read it? Thanks for stopping by & have a wonderful week! — 𝓓𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓪

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! 🏈 We live in the Kansas City area, so we’ll be cheering on the KC Chiefs later today. I’m sure the game will be a nail biter. I’m not a football fan at all, but I feel like I should support the hometown team! [Update 2/8/21: Yikes! That was a painful game to watch. It just wasn’t their night. Bummer! Still, they had an amazing season.]

So…it’s been many years since I’ve joined a weekly book blog meme. 😯 I’d say for the past five years or so I’ve been concentrating most of my time on Goodreads and Instagram (and cross-posting here), because I felt like the book community had shifted in those directions. Lately, though, I’ve been missing my good ole book blog. Have you noticed a change in the book blogging community?

⭐️ A quick side note: I recently deleted my Facebook account (personal & page), so if we were friends & you noticed I disappeared, that’s why!
