The Weekend Wrap-Up

A weekly recap post linking up with:


Thank you to Kimberly @ Caffeinated Reviewer | Deb @ Readerbuzz | Kathryn @ The Book Date for hosting! Please visit them to join the fun. What have you been up to this week?

This has been the year of home improvements at our place. We’ve had a new roof installed, bedrooms repainted, and just this week we had a new driveway & front steps poured. We decided it was time to spruce things up. As I was writing this post, we discovered that the lights in our hall bathroom don’t work! I suspect it’s a bad switch, so I guess we get to add some electrical stuff to the improvements list.

What I’ve Read Recently:

KILL ALL YOUR DARLINGS by David Bell (⭐⭐⭐⭐)

SHARICE’S BIG VOICE: A Native Kid Becomes a Congresswoman by Sharice Davids with Nancy K. Mays, Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley (Illustrator) (⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐)

Sharice Davids is my representative in Congress, so I was very excited about her picture book autobiography. It tells her inspirational life story from talkative child of an Army sergeant to one of the first Native American women in Congress, and the first LGBTQ congressperson representing Kansas. She worked hard, used her voice, and listened to people along the way. Even though she had doubters — “They thought I couldn’t win based on what I look like, who I love, and where I started” — she overcame obstacles through perseverance & triumphed in the end. The illustrations are vibrant and capture Rep. Davids’ message beautifully.
