Good morning, friends. Another week has flown by and it seems like the weekend goes even faster. Things have been relatively uneventful here... and that's fine with me. We haven't had any more snow and that's good news, too.
Read last week//
The Deep End by Julie MulhernHave you heard of The Country Club Murders? I don't read many mysteries, but something about the cover and 1970s country club setting appealed to me. Katherine and Greg both enjoyed the second in the series, so when I found Book 1 for just $2.99, "buy now with 1-click" happened. This also counts toward RIP X , so I haven't been a complete failure in that department after all. Look for my review later this week.
Out Stealing Horses by Per PettersonOur next book club selection. I decided to add in the audio version after Debbie mentioned how good it was. So glad I took her advice! Both the story and the narration suit my current mood and the weather perfectly. I'll finish later today or tomorrow.
New books in the house//
My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth StroutStrout's new novel will be released in January. I've sworn off Netgalley, but she is a favorite, so I just had to request this one. I'm tempted to read it now and sit on my review until next year.
Oxford Reader's Companion to Trollope by R. C. Terry , editorYou didn't expect an update post completely devoid of Trollope, did you? I know I'm slightly obsessed right now, but Lisa is to blame/thank for this purchase.

The Week Ahead//
I'm looking forward to Halloween next weekend. We only get a handful of trick-or-treaters (it takes some effort to get little ones out here), but I love seeing the kids all dressed up. It reminds me of the days we gathered for take-out pizza with friends and took all the kids out trick-or-treating. Great memories!
Twin A is coming home on Thursday for a long weekend. I can't wait! She will enjoy all the Halloween festivities and I think she's already looking forward to the extra hour of sleep Saturday night when Daylight Savings Time ends.
How was your week? Did you read anything good?
