Last week, I went apple picking for the first time in two years. We got apples, pears, apple cider, and cider donuts – everyone’s favorite. We also learned that the orchard we always go to is even bigger than we thought. There’s a whole new area that we didn’t even realize was part of the property, plus we go to take the hayride to get around which I haven’t done in ages.
We also got our firewood delivery for the winter, so we spent a couple days getting a rather large pile of logs all stacked up and put away for the colder days ahead.
Last Week I Finished Reading
The Tea Dragon Society by K. O’Neill – This book is so stinkin cute. The art is lovely, the story is sweet. And I wish tea dragons were real because they are adorable and I want one
Heartstopper, volumes 3 & 4 by Alice Oseman – I’ve been reading this on Webtoon, so I guess technically I’m halfway through volume 5. Heartwarming contemporary is generally not my scene, but Alice Oseman does a wonderful job at capturing the feelings of figuring out who you are, whatever that may mean, as well as some of the less certain feelings within new relationships and changing friendships
Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow by Jessica Townsend – This had been recommended to me by a few people, and I hear nothing but good things about it within the book community. It’s exciting and magical. I’m a big Fenastra fan, although I imagine interacting with her would be incredibly frustrating
Kings of the Wyld by Nicholas Eames – I’m a bit worried I won’t finish this before my library loan is due and I’ll have to wait a while to finish it. I’m enjoying the story, I love the plot and the tone and the characters. It’s just the right amount of not taking itself too seriously without becoming a parody that I tend to be partial to.
