After seeing the gorgeous cover and the odd title, I knew I had to pick this one up.  The Smell of Other People’s Houses?  What’s that all about?

Happy Sunday bookworms!

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend.  As school is starting to wind down for the school year for my kids, things are fairly hectic around here.  It’s like all the teachers decided to organize a million end of the year activities (breakfasts at school, lunch with your kid day, field days, field trips, etc. etc.) and cram them all into a 2 week period.  I think I am looking forward to summer vacation just  as much as my kids are.

Anyways!  Let’s see what else I had going on this week…

Happy Sunday bookworms!

And Happy Mother’s Day to all those celebrating here in the U.S.  I will be spending the day with my family, then tonight I will be off to enjoy my Mother’s Day present, which happens to be concert tickets to see Red Hot Chili Peppers tonight in Columbus!  Sounds like the perfect Mother’s Day to me 🙂

This week was a little less productive than I wanted due to the fact that I caught a nasty stomach bug and was down for the count for 3 days.  I did get a decent amount of reading done, but I didn’t get as much done on my backlist of book reviews to write than I was planning on.  Must. Write. Book. Reviews. #TheStruggleIsReal

Let’s see what I did get done this week, shall we?
