The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas is a powerful and moving novel about police brutality and systematic racism. It was on my 2019 book list and I had requested the hardcover and audiobook knowing that it would be a long waitlist. I started listening to the audiobook and I got through about 75% of…
When I One of Us is Lying to my 2019 book list, I didn’t know it was a teen mystery. It only took me a few pages into the first chapter to realize it, but that didn’t stop me from reading and throughly enjoying it.
When we first moved to our Cincinnati house we joked about having a formal living room. I associate them with furniture you can’t sit on, carpet you can’t walk on, and floral patterns that hurt your eyes.

I finally finished My Family and Other Animals! Nothing like a dysfunctional family story to entertain and amuse you. The majority of it was read on the patio, with glass of wine via a Queen Bee glass. So happy summer is finally here!

I haven’t done a Currently Post since February! Time to discuss a few recent favorites and one very exciting development.
I can’t believe we’re already through all the long training runs and we’re into the taper! Last weekend was the 22-mile run from Washington Park and now we’ll taper the next three weeks until the Flying Pig Marathon. Could not have gotten this far without this amazing group. 🙂
I just finished Behind Closed Doors by B. A. Paris and couldn’t wait to share! It was so good! I first heard about it on the Young House Love podcast last year, but it didn’t quite make the 2019 book list cut.
