This was an interesting week. Early in the week, I received the Kindle Scribe that I pre-ordered. This thing is HUGE! I am really liking it so far. I think that I will use the notebook functions a lot more than I originally thought that I would. It will be really handy to keep my TBR list on my device and I love the feeling of crossing books off that list when I finish them.
My husband and I celebrated our 23rd wedding anniversary on Thursday. Celebrate is probably the wrong word since we just stayed home and ate a frozen pizza but it is nice to acknowledge that milestone. When I got home from work on Thursday, we discovered that we had no internet. So my usual plans of writing reviews and blog hopping went out the window and I put on my headphones and started working on a puzzle. It was kind of a nice forced break.
On Saturday, I got together with part of my family that lives on the other side of the state to celebrate Christmas. It was nice to see everyone and I got to hold my new great-niece. Today, my husband and I are driving to my daughter’s college to pick up most of her stuff. We will leave her with just enough items to fit her in her for her final week of the semester.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I finished 6 books this week. I finished all four books I was working on last week plus 2 more. Curse of Shadows by A.K. Wilder was just as good as the first book in the series. Romancing My Love by Melissa Foster was a great romance to listen to at work. The Widowmaker by Hannah Morrissey was a very well-done mystery that kept me guessing until the end. I liked the second half of Priest by Sierra Simone more than the first and I am glad that I decided to finish it. I loved the main character, Maddie, in Maame by Jessica George and enjoyed how much her character grew over the course of the book. I decided to re-read Trouble in Mudbug by Jana DeLeon since I hope to tackle the rest of the series next year.
I started listening to Shorefall by Robert Jackson Bennett while I worked on a puzzle this week and am really enjoying it. I have just started The Last Outlaw by Rosanne Bittner and look forward to reading more of Jake and Miranda’s story.
