Some New Arrivals

Hope you all had a great weekend. I indulged in naps and probably too many sweets but I’d had a couple of stressful days last week and have to say that really helped. I’m also trying to keep up with a workout schedule so not all is bad.

Anyway, I wanted to share a couple of things that arrived in my mailbox last week. The first is the latest issue of Taproot Magazine. Isn’t that cover just so cozy? This is such a neat magazine with inspiration for your crafts, baking and other arts and domestic pursuits. I don’t do any baking or cooking but I’ll make sure to pass along the recipes to my husband. Haha…

My other is a book I’ve heard a lot about from a couple of Spanish speaking booktubers. Salvar el Fuego by Guillermo Arriaga won the Premio Alfaguara for best novel of 2020. I was excited about this book but little did I realize just how chunky this book is coming in at 659 pages. Can I just tell you that it took me three weeks to finish a novella of 168 pages recently? I have my work cut out for me with this one and I think I may just save it for my first book of the year.

Thinking about the next couple of weeks, I’d really like to do some quick write ups of books I’ve finished, tell you about some books on my radar, do my best of lists and talk about some other things I’ve been meaning to share. I’m also starting to think about reading challenges for 2021, some personal bookish goals, etc.

That’s about it for now friends. Hope you are all staying healthy and have a great start to the week!
