This is my first It's Monday! of 2013. Unfortunately for us, the week before Christmas my daughter came down with the flu. Then my son came down with it. Then my husband. And then me. Yep, Christmas day we were all recovering from the flu. It took two weeks for everyone to get better and for me, well I just finished a course of antibiotics. So needless to say, reading and blogging for me was non-existent! But I'm finally getting back to normal and I'm excited to be back!
What I Read Last Week:
My first read of 2013 was The Twelve Tribes of Hattie by Ayana Mathis, a book that tons of people are talking about right now and I see why. I also finally finished reading Siddhartha by Herman Hesse after putting it down before Christmas.
What I'm Reading Now:
The Heavy is about Dara-Lynn Weiss' journey to help her overweight 8 year old daughter lose weight and is a mother-daughter memoir that first told its story in the pages of Vogue last year.
What I Plan to Read Next:
The Painted Girls by Cathy Marie Buchanan is the story of two sisters in Paris in 1878 who struggle to hold on to their place in society after the death of their father. And I Heart London by Lindsey Kelk looks to be a fun chick lit novel about a British woman in New York who has to return to London and face unfinished business. I didn't read as much chick lit last year as I would have liked, so I plan on fixing that this year!
What are you reading this week?
