Thanks to Kat for hosting us for this weekly link-up of projects and reading! In keeping with my theme this month of finishing up works in progress, I have been totally monogamous to my C2C crochet blanket, and look how much I've added just since yesterday!
Please excuse the wrinkly duvet cover; I thought I'd try something other than the carpeting in an effort to get the colors right, and while I still haven't quite managed to do that, this photo is a better representation than yesterday's. The rows are now getting noticeably shorter and the ball of yarn is getting smaller, so the end is in sight. I'm hoping I can manage to finish this up by the end of the week!
I have only finished one book since last week, but it was a good one! I ended up staying up after everyone else went to sleep on Friday night to finish The Once and Future Witches -- normally I would be reading in bed, but I wanted to make sure I stayed awake, so I went into the den so I could turn on a light! I spent much of the book worrying that it would live up to my expectations (because I adored the author's first book), but I'm happy to report that it did. This was another 5-star book for me. I think what I really love the most about both books is the worlds that Alix Harrow creates, especially that they are worlds in which strong women are the norm. I wrote quite an extensive review of this book on Goodreads, so I'll direct you there if you'd like to know more about my thoughts.
I have a bit of a wait until my next hold from the library (the next one in the list is the audiobook of Barack Obama's new book, so you can imagine how long that wait is!), so in the meantime I'm trying to read some of the books already in my Kindle library. I'm currently reading Opium and Absinthe, which was an Amazon First Reads freebie from sometime last year. It's not really grabbing me at the moment, but I'm invested enough to see where it goes.
I hope your projects and books are moving right along!
