Things I’m loving this Thursday

The nice and cool morning we’re having. A bit of an overcast sky is a nice change from the full blast of the sun!

Jenny Lewis is back with Voyager. I’m so glad.

This three ingredient salsa from Smitten Kitchen makes me want to go out and get me some tomatoes!

This blueberry lemon cake with lemon glaze from Averie Cooks

Celery Bread sounds like a good way to use up celery next time.

I’m going to see whether my library has any of these books by Rose Tremain for Savidge Reads’ Trespassing with Tremain

I’ve added books to my TBR list thanks to these links:

Mr Gwyn – Alessandro Baricco (B&N Review)

This one’s for the kids: What Do You Do With an Idea? by Kobi Yamada, illustrated by Mae Besom (BookDragon)

JoV at Bibliojunkie is back on her blog and making me want to read Apple Tree Yard by Louis Doughty!

Aarti’s #Diversiverse genre spotlights, like this one on non-fiction, this one on historical fiction. And here’s her main post explaining what it’s all about.



  1. Gosh, I am so honoured to be in your headline! 🙂 You have to read the Apple Tree Yard. It doesn’t get enough publicity it deserves but it is a haunting read. I am curious about Trespassing with Rose Tremain. I love Rose Tremain from “Home” and I have Colour with me. I am sure I have a few more of her books lying about… in my Kindle. 😉


  2. and your two boys remind me of my two. Close age gap, non-stop competition. Hope they don’t fight for the same toy, like mine do, All the time …. ~ sigh.
