Sunday.April.21 – Saturday.April.27

AKA: The week I rushed to the doctor and got a booster shot because I work with tiny little humans and I refuse to die from a 19th-century disease like some Dickens peasant…


The Husband’s Secret by Liane Moriarty

​Three different storylines intertwine, all relating in some way, to the husband’s secret. The secret itself a doozy, and one we find out early on in the book. The main focus is on the consequences of actions taken (or not taken) by the characters. An easy, fast-paced read. I really liked the epilogue! (A lot of… what if…) [3*]

Hamilton: The Revolution by Lin-Manuel Miranda and Jeremy McCarter (narrated by Mariska Hargitay and Lin-Manuel Miranda)

​Best book ever! Everything you ever wanted to know about the musical Hamilton is in this fabulous book. Costume choices, lighting, picking the performers, etc. I am #obsessed. FYI Lin-Manuel narrates the last part about the libretto lyrics, this is where the physical book would have been a better option [4.5*]

The Song of the Jade Lily by Kirsty Manning

RTC!! Eventually…


Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie (narrated by Jim Dale)

My second read, first time audio listen. Loving it!! Should be finishing it up before the month ends 🙂

Save the Date by Morgan Matson

Morgan Matson does it again! I am really enjoying this read!! About 73% through the book. Should be wrapping it up by tonight.


Furiously Happy: A Funny Book About Horrible Things by Jenny Lawson
I have this audiobook all set and ready to go as soon as I finish Peter Pan.

Well that wraps up another week in reading! Also, this is me right now:

  1. Damn, what the kids give you?

    Does the guy have a second family or something? I don’t know. I knew it would be a 3* read.

    I read the preview for Furiously Happy and I was instantly annoyed. It just was not for me.

    1. Lmao nothing. But my doctor was telling me there was a whooping cough death recently and we were discussing the measles epidemic. So when he said I was due for a booster shot and if I wanted to get vaccinated I quickly said “yes! Please. Now”. Lots of parents aren’t vaccinating their kids and I love these little humans but I’ll be damned if they pass some disease on to me.

      😮 really?! Audiobook! Although, I can see why it wouldn’t be for everyone haha. Her “quirks” are an acquired taste lol


      1. Vaccinations should be mandatory. Honestly, any parent who refuses should be sent to an island to live amongst other people who don’t believe in vaccinating their children. This is probably my harshest unpopular opinion, but parents who don’t vaccinate their children… well, should not be responsible for children either.

        She seems lovely, but it’s just one of those cases where the differences are too much. She’s the Leibniz to my Voltaire.
