Happiest of Wednesdays, book friends! The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, and I just got done doing yoga on my porch, so I’m in a pretty good mood!
I’ve got two longer books going right now and am making slow progress as a result, but I’m enjoying them, which is what matters. My Goodreads challenge has been alternating between “on track” and “one book behind” for about a month, which is honestly not that bad given we’re nearly halfway through the year.
I haven’t finished any new books since last week, though I have completed several more quests in Skyrim. So, there’s that.
In the mornings, I read one chapter from Modern Tarot, then a bit from Women Without Kids. I’m making decent progress on both and am enjoying them immensely. I’m honestly a bit surprised at how emotional the experience of reading Women Without Kids has been so far. I knew the book would resonate, but I wasn’t prepared for just how deeply.
My fiction read of the moment is still The Adventures of Amina Al-Sarafi. I’m enjoying it and I like the writing style, but it is a bit dense and therefore taking me some time to get through. I’m about at the halfway point.
Up Next & On to You
I will likely have to get back to ARCs before I finish Amina beacuse I’ve got some book tour deadlines coming up, so I foresee a lot of book juggling in my near future. With the holiday weekend here in the States for Memorial Day, I’m hoping to dig into some quality reading.
We’re hosting some folks at the farm for a cookout, but since it’s my house and I get overwhelmed by large groups, I may sit outside with a book for some of the festivities anyway. Such a rebel, I know.
That’s it for me this week. What have you been reading lately, book friends?

I know what you mean about large groups. It’s a standing joke in our family that I disappeared for over half an hour at my wedding reception. I was just sitting peacefully in our hotel room but nobody thought to look there 😃
Sometimes you just need a quiet moment, for sure!
That sounds like such a lovely and peaceful morning! ❤ I have seen mixed reviews for, The Adventures of Amina Al-Sarafi, so I can't wait to see what you think of it!
