Sundays, er, Mondays In Bed With... West Cork and The Meaning of Birds

Welcome to our Sundays In Bed With… Meme! The meme that dares to ask what book has been in your bed this morning? Come share what book you’ve spent time curled up reading in bed, or which book you wish you had time to read today! 

We’re done trying to make this a blog hop, but still feel free to participate!  Maybe someday we’ll try to make it happen as a blog hop again, but right now we feel like Gretchen trying to make ‘fetch’ happen.

This morning Kim is reading:

Kate here for Kim!  I forgot to post yesterday, because I was running around all day- but Kim is off this morning for MLK Jr. Day, so hopefully she'll have to snuggle up and listen to this audiobook (it's freezing here, ya'll!).  This sounds cool, actually, so I might have to look into it!

The Meaning of Birds by Jaye Robin Brown

So I had a busy weekend even though I was mostly off. Late Friday night, Aaron and I went to see Glass (I LOVED it, but Unbreakable and Split are faves already, so I thought it was great).  I worked a tiny bit both Saturday and Sunday at both my jobs, but I had my niece's 20th birthday. Pokemon Go exraid in the the park where my sister-in-law, 2 of my nieces and I made friends with three other women PoGoers and had fun, then I had book club with my Midnight Book Club friends (Kim was there) where we ate and talked, and then went to a desserts only restaurant and had delicious, decadent desserts... and ran into my brother, my sister-in-law and 2 of my nieces who were there celebrating Grace's 20th birthday.  Then on Sunday, I hosted YA book club at the bookstore (Furyborn by Claire Legrand), which was fun.  After that, I had a quick lunch with the Hubs and went to my friend J's house to hang out with her and our other friend J, to make candles and celebrate the Blood/Wolf Moon.  All the business, but so much fun! 

I also made time to get almost half-way through The Meaning of Birds.  I loved Brown's Georgia Peaches and Other Forbidden Fruit, and I'm enjoying this one.  Jess, the main character, is dealing with the sudden death of her girlfriend, Vivi, and not dealing well with her anger issues (an ongoing problem for her, that had been mostly under control).  It's emotional, obviously, because it switches between the past (Jess and Vivi falling for each other) and the present (Jess spiraling out after Vivi's death), but it's not a sobfest.  Not sure how much time I'll have to read today, because I work all day at the bookstore.
