Books, and back to work

50 weeks of maternity leave and I'm back to work. It's been really hard to adjust and I'm still adjusting but I think being a working mom will be doable. I'm still very sleep deprived, Caleb doesn't sleep his night and I don't think he ever will... Some mornings he's up at 4:30 am. I'm just trying to enjoy all the time that I do have with him, and not think about all the hours he spends in daycare. I was fortunate to gradually transition him to daycare, and he's been doing great. 

Since I'm back to work, I'm commuting again which means I can read! I was in such a reading funk and couldn't get into anything for awhile. I picked up Kate Morton's House of Riverton. I love her books and this one has been on my tbr list for awhile. I'm hooked! The world is very similar to Downton Abbey, which I didn't expect but really held my attention from the beginning. I'm about half way through and hope to review it soon. 

I've also started looking into Booktubers. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. 

For those in the US, Happy Thanksgiving!
