Weekend reads, or digging out

I've got many books in the queue (Stolen Beauty, A Man Called Ove, Leopard At The Door) and they're all great, but I'm having such a hard time concentrating.

I have, in the words of someone I know, Trumpsomnia.

But I've been moved to tears over the response to Warren's unreasonable gagging, and have taken immense comfort in #NeverthelessShePersisted. (This gorgeous graphic is from Kimberly Faye Reads.)

We survived Winter Storm Niko, although I'm dreading digging out my car. Unabridged Toddler was scandalized that a construction vehicle was removing snow -- snow plows remove snow!

Hope all of you are doing well. What are you reading this weekend?

Teaser Tuesday, February 7

Today's teaser comes from Laurie Lico Albanese's Stolen Beauty.

This delicious and fascinating novel tells the stories of Adele Bloch-Bauer, Klimt's muse and lover, and Adele's niece Maria, who is a young woman in Austria during Hitler's invasion.

It's the kind of novel that makes you want to stay in all day to read, and I'm looking forward to this weekend when I hope to finish it!

My teaser is actually the novel's opening line, because it is good.

I was a love-struck newlywed when Hitler came to Austria.

I know, right?? What are you reading right now? Got a teaser to share?
