Hello readers! Time for another Weekly Wrap Up! I hope you all are well and had a great week, enjoying that sunshine if you’re a spring person. For me, my least favorite time and season of the year starts at this time that lasts almost till September. It always feels there is no such thing as Spring here! Okay there is and it’s from mid Feb to mid April but come mid March and I always say it’s summer as temperature gets unbearable day by day. It’s already 90 here and this week temperature will be above 100. You can imagine how May will be. No need to go to hell to see the devil cooking poor souls. Thankgod for A.C. but we avoid looking at electricity bills.
As for personal life, my kid is speaking more than she was last year this time. There has been good improvement with her speech this month. But we are stuck with potty training. Nothing is working and I might leave it to when she is ready!
Last week has been good. I could read only one book but it has been an uneventful week. I finally made infographic that has been on my mind but I’m still not sure if it’s good enough. Maybe I’ll just post it and leave it to you all to judge from reaction how it has turned out. I also received an email with April eARCs. It arrived early this time and there are some interesting books that I would love to read before the publication date.
I watched movies with my kid. She saw some scenes that caught her attention and slept in middle of movie while I watched full movie and enjoying more than her! what can I say, I have always enjoyed animated movies even though my family says you are too old to enjoy them.
Last Week I Read
If You Ask Me by Libby Hubscher
This is heartfelt and fun read. I finished in less than 24 hrs. I enjoyed characters. It was easy to root for Violet and cheer her as she vent her feelings by burning her cheating husband’s clothes, deliberately bumping new car of her monster-in-law who always demean her but yes things go too far sometimes and I loved how Violet rectifies her mistakes and learned to give life and love second chance. I absolutely loved hero, a hot and handsome firefighter, who had a sunshine personality. He had his baggage but he learned to deal with it and I loved how through helping Violet he was making sure what happened in his past don’t happen to her too. I’m still thinking if to rate this 4 or 4.5 but I have some days to decide before review goes up in April.
At Least You Have Your Health by Madi Sinha
I’m at nearly 40% of the book and so far I like it but it’s a steady pace, a reason I couldn’t finish it in weekends. Steady paced books make me want to put it down for a while and pick it again when I’m mood. The story is about an Indian gynecologist married with three kids trying to juggle work and motherly duties and struggling in field dominated by men and white people. I liked representations of Indian immigrants, how Indian parents raise their kids and their expectations and how that affect second-generation Immigrants and how they live life. It’s very accurate and realistic. I can see many parents like that around me. Along with it there is social inequality, rich parents and their overly obsessive nature when it comes to their kids, women’s healthcare, and the healthcare system. In short, it involves many important topics and I love that most so far. I can’t wait to see where this is going.
