I am really excited to participate in The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Reading Reality.

My Life

This was a fairly normal week. I spent most of the workweek alone at the office which I actually tend to enjoy. The sleepover with my niece and nephew ended with my niece getting sick and having to go home a few hours early. They are planning to come back in a few weeks and hopefully, nobody gets sick then. I took one of my dogs to the vet on Saturday and have determined that she is absolutely insane. I had to carry her into the vet’s office and she did her best to drag me to the door once inside. She weighs 45 pounds so I was tired by the time I got her home but she did get her shots so I guess that’s what matters.

How was your week?

What I’m Reading

I finished 3 books this week. I listened to All Things Cease to Appear by Elizabeth Brundage early in the week and found it to be a very interesting story. I spent a lot of time this week reading Crowbones by Anne Bishop and enjoyed seeing the crew from Lake Silence tackle another mystery. I then moved on to Skin Game by Jim Butcher and absolutely loved it.

I haven’t listened to too much of Shenanigans by Sarina Bowen yet but I am loving the drunken Vegas wedding setup. I have read almost 40% of The Match by Harlan Coben and am really enjoying it so far

Books Added

Unmasked: My Life Solving America’s Cold Cases by Paul Holes (Publisher); The Latecomer by Jean Hanff Korelitz (Publisher)

  1. Aww, sorry the sleepover was cut short. Your dog and I are kindred spirits when it comes to doctor’s visits. You have to drag me in too.

    • They made it through the night so I guess the sleepover was a success even if they had to leave earlier than expected.

  2. Alone at the office sounds like a nice break! I didn’t realize Crowbones took place back at Lake Silence. I need to adjust my expectations. For some reason I thought it would be in Bennett again. I’m listening to Shenanigans now, too, and really enjoying it. 🙂

    • For some reason, the group from Lake Silence has stayed in my memory better than the group from Wild Country. I was happy to see Vicki and the rest of the group in Crowbones.

  3. Sorry to hear your niece got sick! Hope the next sleepover ends happier! Yeah, our remaining dog isn’t much of a fan of going to the vet either. He doesn’t like the scale for some reason. My parents are always telling me how they have to life him on the scale and try to get him to stay for it to register his weight in time. Our poor pooch who is gone now was so much more chill about it all. Lol.

    Nice new reads! Those are new to me ones but I hope you enjoy them both!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

    • There was no way my dog was going to get on the scale. They had to weigh her in the back. Our previous dogs loved going to the vet.

  4. Normal is good. The Covid protocol at our vet is that they take the dog inside, we talk to the vet on the phone and then they bring her back out. Lulu loves everyone and is happy to see them all, plus she is under 20 pounds.

    I’m halfway through Crowbones and enjoying it.

    • We used to need to call the vet once we arrived and come in when told. They just lifted all of the mask mandates so that wasn’t the case this time around.

      I am glad that you are enjoying Crowbones!

  5. I need to read another Sandra Brown book! I am also eyeing The Latecomer, as I read one of the author’s books last year and enjoyed it (and the series based on it).

    Enjoy your week!

  6. Oh no, poor niece! Your dog sounds hilarious. One of my cats always goes limp as a dishrag and refuses to cooperate though he doesn’t get mean about the shots.
    Glad it was a quiet week and you loved your books. 🙂

    Have another good one, Carole!
