Happy Holy Week! Sunday was Palm Sunday; Holy Thursday, Passover, Good Friday, and Resurrection Sunday are later this week. Accordingly, for this week’s What to Read Wednesday I’m sharing our favorite Easter book, as well as a few random titles we’ve recently completed. Be sure to also check out the most popular post shared last week, below: Fill Your Easter Basket With Books.
I finished a Tree Grows in Brooklyn last week and simply adored the turn of the century tale set in immigrant-rich New York. I also muscled through Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine (spoiler: she isn’t), which was peculiar and had me questioning my own sanity until the very end.
We finished Louisa May Alcott’s Little Men aloud, which was precious and inspiring to this weary homeschool mom; then started The Mysterious Benedict Society, which is so far quite fun and reminiscent of Lemony Snicket’s A Series of Unfortunate Events— which we adore. (Season 2 of the Netflix series kicks off this week, we’ll be watching!)
I also just received my much-anticipated pre-order of Sarah Mackenzie’s The Read-Aloud Family in the mail and am pacing myself, lest I devour it like Bruce Bogtrotter does chocolate cake.
Most excitedly, I’m digging into Kristen Welch of We Are THAT Family fame’s latest book, Raising World Changers in a Changing World, as part of her official launch team. Stay tuned for my formal review once I’m through. You’ll recall I also reviewed her last book, Raising Grateful Kids in an Entitled World.
