The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn - the plot was very similar to Ths Duke and I.
Food: A Love Story by Jim Gaffigan - I also love food so I related to this book. But it wasn't LOL funny for me.
QOTW: I have strong feelings about time changing! I hate it so much! I want the changing to stop! I would rather we stay with the time we are on right now because I don't like that it's light out at 9pm in the summer, but I won't care which one is picked if it just stops changing.
I read Conditional Citizens: On Belonging in America. It presented a lot of interesting points. This is a short book but I didn’t read more this week because I started and stopped something else.
QOTW: I like springing forward because I like more daylight. The only thing I like about falling back is gaining that extra hour of sleep. But having a kid around kind of makes that irrelevant nowadays.
I'm listening to The Power by Naomi Alderman, which I hadn't heard of until I saw it recommended on Twitter by Margaret Atwood. It is slightly reminiscent of Handmaid's Take in the storytelling but a very different premise where the women have all the power. I'm really enjoying it.
I'm re-reading the Outlander series in anticipation of the next book hopefully coming out this year. Not back-to-back, but intermittently. Right now I'm on Voyager. Gabaldon's web site says she's almost done with book 9 but it's said that for a very long time now so who knows.
QOTW: I don't love the change, especially tonight when we lose an hour!
Tangled Threads (#4 in series) by Jennifer Estep - urban fantasy; I liked the overall plot developments, but there weren't any interesting twists or reveals particularly in this book
Your Dad Will Do by Katee Robert - basically all smut (daddy-kink) and no plot, but it was well written *shrug*
Good Talk: A Memoir in Conversations by Mira Jacob - graphic novel; I really enjoyed this, recommended!
QOTW: I like that it gets dark later, I just wish we would stick with this time and not do the whole 'fall back' time adjustment later in the year. Also, we do this spring ahead time change two weeks ahead of when the UK does it, which makes some work meetings a scheduling nightmare until they 'catch up' to us.
