TSS – Springing Forward

Good morning, friends!

Well, Spring Forward seems to have officially brought spring to Chicago. Our entire upcoming week is supposed to be in the mid- to upper-60s, which will be just lovely. I am still disappointed by our (lack of) winter, but at this point I’m ready to move onto a season that will hopefully behave properly. Plus, I’m looking forward to sitting out on the back lawn with a book while Daniel runs in circles.

In addition to actual spring weather, March is also bringing with it some Twitter chats for great books. Penguin’s second #readPenguin selection is A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (which I loved) and HarperCollins has invited some special guests to discuss the Maisie Dobbs series and the publication of the 9th book in the series. You can find details on participating in both chats on my Tumblr.

This turned out to be a pretty good week for reading, and I’m anticipating that this next week will be even better. Here’s what I finished this week:

And what I reviewed, in case you missed any of it:

  • I loved A Discovery of Witches too – wonderful book. What did you think of Vanishers? I just put it on my TBR list based on it being a March Book of the Month pick on Amazon – but I just read at “Book’d Out” where it was a DNF for her.

    • I really liked it, I think it is wonderfully written, although I can see how some people wouldn’t mesh well with it. If I can figure out how to write about it my review will be up tomorrow.

  • DC seems to have done the same thing, nonexistent winter and the forecast for this week is all in the 70s, maybe even 80 on day!

    I see that you just finished “Being Lara”. I received that in the mail from Library Thing yesterday. I saw some bad reveiws of it. I am really hoping that it is better than they said, Will be reading it soon.

  • Your warm weather means it’s already HOT down here. Definitely not ready for that yet.

  • March is Maisie month for me, too, as I await the arrival of the new book!
