Currently Reading:

An international bestseller--the extraordinary memoir of a German-Nigerian woman who learns that her grandfather was the brutal Nazi commandant depicted in "Schindler's List"

I've been thumbing through The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up by Marie Kondo. I'm feeling inspired and am planning on hosting some sort of clutter busting challenge for book bloggers in the near future. Watch for it!

The Relentless Weekly Wrap-Up 01/25/2015

I'm giving away a stack of ARCs. Go enter!

In exciting style news I'm going to get a new haircut this week. Are you breathless with anticipation? I am! I'm going to have my guy cut off a bunch of hair and give me a messy bob. That's the plan at this point. I'm sure you'll stay tuned for any changes.

There weren't many adventures in the kitchen this week. I didn't make anything terribly exciting or new. I did  make a big dish of my granny's pizza hot dish. Mmm, it's like the Midwest in a bowl.

I recently finished All the Light We Cannot See. Good gravy, what a gorgeous book. I also read My Sunshine Away, a brilliant tale about crime and childhood. I found time to sneak in two adorable graphic novels by Raina Telgemeier: Smile and Drama. Right now I'm in the middle of My Grandfather Would Have Shot Me by Jennifer Teege. (It's INTENSE.) January is shaping up to be a stellar month of reading.

My pal Andi (Estella's Revenge) was in the Wall Street Journal! How cool is that?

Do you dig nonfiction? Doing Dewey has a Nonfiction Friday feature that you should totally be reading.

Anita published a piece on ARC overload. Check it out!

This week was weird. I'm very ready to move onto the next.
