The roundup this week. I finished:
The Kingdom of Ohio by Matthew Flaming
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins
And I continued reading The Fellowship of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien. I’m trying to reign myself in and only read a few chapters at a time since this is supposed to be a read-along and not a devour the book in one afternoon reading session. Unlike The Hobbit, I plan to make this one last till the end of the month, if I can. I make no promises…
Stonehenge by Bernard Cornwell
The Fellowship of Rings, discussion 1
I hope to start Remarkable Creatures by Tracy Chevalier today or tomorrow but I don’t think I’ll be getting much reading in with all the cooking we’ll be doing this afternoon. My husband and I don’t go out for Valentine’s Day but we do cook a big fancy meal at home. This year I have planned a 5 course dinner — salad, soup, roasted pork, a cheese course, and a chocolate and strawberry cake to top it off. I’m really looking forward to dinner tonight! I baked the cake last night and it looks pretty good. Although I will admit to having to channel my grandmother and use a bit of icing to fix the slightly lopsided top. Thanks Gram! 🙂 I’m hoping to get a head start on the rest of dinner this afternoon so we can relax and enjoy it without getting too stressed.
This coming week I hope to get started on a few books that have been sitting around my house namely The Swan Thieves by Elizabeth Kostova. I also have Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel that I want to read and a few books by Helen Hollick that are also sitting on the shelf waiting for my attention. Who knows, maybe that will be this month’s reading.
Happy Sunday and Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Enjoy the day. I’m off to cook! 🙂

Remarkable Creatures sounds fascinating- I look forward to your review! And Happy Valentine’s Day!
