Weekly Reads, Vol. 78

This week's round-up is a bit light. I think a lot of bloggers are on breaks. Or maybe they're just at a loss for words with all the chaos in our world lately. I can't say I blame them.  Regardless, I do have a few good posts for your enjoyment.

Erin is welcoming her first baby in the next few months. As she awaits her precious girl, she waivers back and forth between excitement and mourning the loss of pre-baby life. I think it sounds normal, but I'm as child-free as you can be. Can any other mommas relate?

As you might recall, I recently read the Harry Potter series for the first time. I enjoyed it and wouldn't mind finding others that are in a similar vein. Heather has some good suggestions here.

I am always trying to improve my habits. I more than like Joey's bullet-style journal of tracking her habits. I might have to do this.

Happy Sunday everyone!


  1. If you liked HP, then you'll enjoy Rick Riordan's books, particularly his Percy Jackson and the Olympians series and companion books, but I also enjoyed the Kane Chronicles series. I haven't started his last few books yet.

  2. Thanks for the link shoutout! While the books I wrote about have obvious references to Harry Potter in them, I was actually going to come comment about Percy Jackson until I saw that Miss B had beaten me to it. If you don't mind reading middle grade, two books I loved as a kid that had unique takes on the kids-learning-magic theme were So You Want to Be a Wizard by Diane Duane (set in that 70's/80's version of NYC where kids could walk around on the streets with no parents) and Wild Magic by Tamora Pierce (Pearce?).
