The snowstorm missed us but we are getting ice rain. The commute to work tomorrow will be a mess.
I'm nursing a tiny cold and so did a lot of reading this past week. My hubby and I started our daily evening walks again, but the cold is back and we cut some of them short. I'm dreaming of beaches...

She has been dubbed the successor to Ghandi. I love learning about strong women who are game changers for the good of humanity.
Historical fiction set in Italy during WWII
Free Kobo books:
Sounds like the main characters are Italian-American
What I read and/or featured last week:
Book Towns: Forty-Five Paradises of the Printed Word by Alex Johnson (Review) This one gave me the travel bug. I want to visit every one of those book towns.
ICE by Lauren Carr (Review and Giveaway!) This was another winner by Lauren Carr. A new series with a strong set of characters
I'm loving this one
Stop by and enter my giveaways!
Also posted on the right sidebar.
Hope you all have a great reading week.
I am dreaming of beaches, too, and we don't even have any snow!ReplyDelete
I like the look of A Family Affair: The Secret. Enjoy!
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.
I do hope we both get to go to the beach this summer. ;-)Delete
I think icy rain is worse than snow. I hope it's not too bad and you're feeling 100% soon.ReplyDelete
The civil disobedience book sounds very timely.
I agree. Snow is so much easier to navigate than ice. I hope it melts fast.Delete
Ice rain and sleet here too, it sleeted all night. such joyful weather. I too could use some beaches...ReplyDelete
The Madonna of the Mountains looks interesting. Italy is always a great setting but I actually don't know if I've read anything set there in WWII, now that I think about it.
Yeah, looks like we get similar weather. I've read a few WWII set in Italy and loved them.Delete
Weather here was in the 80's on Friday, and it is pouring rain right now with snow expected.ReplyDelete
It is April, right? :)
Love Susanna Kearsley's books...ENJOY!!
Both THE MADONNA OF THE MOUNTAINS and A FAMILY AFFAIR look quite good.
ENJOY, and I hope we both get better weather soon.
It was warm here too on Friday, but then it got so cold this weekend. I love Kearsley's books too, and I'm excited about my new books.Delete
The Madonna of the Mountains looks good.ReplyDelete
I'm looking forward t reading it.Delete
It's ice, rain and snow where I am too - crazy Spring weather!ReplyDelete
Nice assortment of books. The snow didn't miss us. 12.7 inches set a new record for April 15 where I live. My only consolation is that April snow can't last long. Except they are forecasting more for Wednesday.Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete
Oh my, you have it way worse than we do here in Canada. I hope it melts fast.Delete
Love that the Kearsley book is good, I like what I have read of her. Just looked up Mary Campisi and see the book is part of a series and I like the sound of the first one so going to check them out more.ReplyDelete
Hehe. I went to Amazon and see I already have the first one on my Kindle and so I got the second one to add to it for 77c. :)ReplyDelete
Glad you discovered a new series here. I need to get that first book too!Delete
A Family Affair looks good. Heck yes, I am dreaming of the beaches too. Hopefully it warms up soon. Have a great week and feel better.ReplyDelete
Oh ergs on the icy rain. Not fun at all. Hope you're feeling better soon.ReplyDelete
The Vandana Shiva book would be a good read. I remember her eco-feminism books.ReplyDelete
I wish there was a way to share weather. We'd love some of your cooler temps and I'd love to give you at least 10 degrees of our warm weather. 90s is a little warmer thank I like for April. Bellewether looks really good, so I'm glad you're loving it. Have a fantastic week!ReplyDelete
Tressa @ Wishful Endings
I wish so too! I love hot weather. I was born in the wrong country. I just finished Bellewether and it was really good.Delete
Hope you don't succumb to the bug and that you stay safe on the roads.ReplyDelete
I've enjoyed some Kearsley. Happy Reading!
