It is a beautiful Monday morning. I think Spring may have finally arrived.

There have been no new book purchases since last week (this makes my wallet happy), but I did receive a Goodreads prize from Penguin Canada. I won Second Chance Friends by Jennifer Scott. The book is about four women from different paths who somehow meet each other at an extraordinary crossroads. I'm a fan of character centric stories so, this sounds like one I will enjoy. The book's release date is not until next month so, I'll be adding it to my May TBR.

As for what I read last week, both of the books I got through were ones that I loved.
How to Love by Katie Cotugno was a cute story about young, vulnerable love and the heartbreak that sometimes usually goes along with it. The Mountain Story by Lori Lansens was a story of survival, perseverance and redemption. This one is a keeper for me. I cannot wait to mee Lori Lansens next week!

I had originally started last week reading The Night Stages by Jane Urquhart, but had to put it down because I just couldn't get into it. I'm going to give it another go this week, but I fear it may end up in my DNF pile. I have also started The Man Who Learned to Walk Three Times:  A Memoir by Peter Kavanagh.

What do you have on deck this week?
