What I Read…

Today is Show Us Your Books Day with Steph and Jana, and I have nothing to show for it. Between travel and baby and losing Lylee and life, September was the biggest clustercuss of my existence. I’m glad that month is over and I appreciate October being a little gentler.

Happy Anniversary to the link-up!! I wish I was contributing more today!

We have a ton of baby stuff this month (breastfeeding class, birthing class, baby shower, maternity pictures). My birthday is this month. We’re also still adjusting to life as it is now. Will I get anything read this month? Only time will tell.

I’m going to say it one more time: thank you so much for all the love these past few weeks. The comments and messages and cards and small gifts have been overwhelming. You are all wonderful & I love you. We are healing & we are grateful.

And now I’m off to read about all the fantastic books y’all read these past few weeks.

  1. I read almost nothing the month I lost the boys so I totally get it – I think I managed 3 books that month and one of those was in hospital while having an iron infusion so I couldn’t really do anything else!
    I hope October is an amazing month for you whether you manage to read or not.


    • I usually read when we travel & I did a little, but I didn’t finish anything. And then the end of Sept. was just awful and all I wanted to do was lay on the couch with Enzo and distract myself with the TV. I forgot a book both times I was in the hospital, plus I kind of just laid there and felt sorry for myself. So yeah… not a great reading month.
      I just put two books on hold at the library, though, so I have high hopes for October 😉


      • Oh yeah, I definitely spent some time lying around feeling sorry for myself, but the kept me in for 2 nights so while Jan was home picking up some clothes and stuff I read the one book I had with me. It was From the Mixed-Up Files Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler so it didn’t exactly take much effort. Haha.

        • I LOVE that book. And it’s the perfect melancholy hospital read- a little sad and a little lost, the characters away from home, the ending being about beauty and hope. Love that one!
