Pull It All Together Monday...

Monday is always my day to put the fun and relaxation of the weekend aside and gently put our house back together...laundry, dusting, fun stuff...but it gives me a sense of...hmmm...order?

Yes...and I love order!

Reluctantly finished this...and it was a lovely book...the words of this author are so real.

Can you tell that I loved this book? The thing about reading so much is that I always think that I love all of the books that I read and I do...but then every once in a while I read a book that is so quietly lovely that I am overwhelmed by it...literally gobsmacked by it...and I am incredulous that I have never read anything by this lovely endearing amazing author before. This is the kind of book where I read about the author and I read the acknowledgements and the preface and still I can't get enough of it all! were so right! Plus it ended my start/stop streak!

Reading this now...for sure!

Off to start my Monday!

Buona Lettura!


  1. Ugh laundry and dusting, two things I'd rather avoid on a Monday, well any day really LOL

  2. Yay, I'm glad I was right! I loved that book too!

    1. You were so right...have you read anything else by her?

  3. Patty, I seriously would love to read this interesting book...A Place at the Table...just by looking at the cover. I was reading The Winner Stands Alone by: Paul Coelho (thrift find book, .79) nearly half way done. Nice and cosy reading at the fab hotel where we were staying in Orlando!

  4. That does look like a good book! Chores are endless; it is good to take a break with a good book!

  5. I do love books that are "quietly lovely," and there is nothing like them. Elizabeth Berg does that for me...and now I must try Susan Rebecca White.

    I got two new Vine books yesterday...and yay! Pretty covers!

    Someone Else's Love Story, by Joshilyn Jackson and MaddAdam, by Margaret Atwood.

    Every time I open a box from Vine, I hold my breath: will it have a pretty cover?
