Folks, the end is in sight....the end of summer, that is! We spent this evening at the Back to School Picnic for my kids and they start back to school on Tuesday. This is the first year that both of them will be in school all day and, well, I guess I no longer have an excuse not to clean my house.
But, on that same note, I do have an excuse--no, a REASON--at the moment. I had a bit of an oopsie earlier this week. I did not trip over the cat--if I had tripped over the cat, I'd probably be fine. But, no....instead I did a weird step around the cat and hyperextended my knee. It was pretty sore for a while--it is getting better, but still sore, so I didn't even worry about my #FitReader goals this week. Sigh...maybe next week!
Right Now, I'm reading:
I can't say much about this as I am currently on page 9. It does have "Girl" in the title, which--lately, at least--indicates suspense...so we shall see!
I had to DNF a romance novel that I expected to enjoy, so I thought I would go back to something that was close to a guaranteed hit as can be. I've read the first two novels in this trilogy and found them delightful and I'm pretty sure this one will follow the trend.
I'm taking this one slowly--I'm aiming for an essay a night, but not sweating it if I miss a night. My review of it isn't scheduled until October 13, so I have plenty of time.
Still plugging along, although not as quickly as I'd like. I think I've fallen behind on my goal to finish this by the end of the year. I'd better get back to it!
Last week, I finished reading:
I pretty much ate this one up, even though I didn't find it to be the best of the series so far. On the whole, though, I have really enjoyed this series and was surprised to find that it is self-published. It is better than some of the stuff I've seen come from some of the major publishing houses.
This one is a case of the right book at the wrong time. I really appreciated how good this book was, but I didn't enjoy it the way I felt I should. It was nothing with the book--I think I just read it at the wrong time. However, I may go back int he future and re-read it.
This was my first Jill Shalvis book...and I'm not sure why that is! I follow her on social media and I have a few of her books on my kindle, but I just had never gotten around to reading any of them...until now. But, you'll have to wait to see what I thought of it!
Confession: I agreed to review this novel only because the author is a fellow William and Mary Grad. Hey--the Tribe has to stand up for each other! Anyway, I'm glad I did read it and I look forward to reading more by Fiona Davis in the future!
