I hope that every who celebrated had a Merry Christmas and that you are having a wonderful New Year! I spent my Christmas alone with my dogs which sounds kind of sad but I enjoyed my quiet day of puzzles and audiobooks. My husband ended up working a lot over this Christmas holiday. The extreme cold caused some pipes to burst and he was called to deal with it. Thankfully, things have warmed up a lot. Work was very quiet this week which made for some very long days but things should pick up soon. We scheduled my dog’s surgery for the end of March and I admit that I am a little nervous about it.
How are you dealing with the HarperCollins strike? I only have a couple of books to review that fall under this publisher right now so I am going to do as the union is asking and hold my reviews for now. I know that everyone’s opinions regarding labor disputes may vary. I do hope that they can come to an agreement very soon.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I finished 6 again books this week. I spent Christmas day listening to a couple of short audiobooks while working on a puzzle. Showdown in Mudbug and Jana DeLeon and Travel by Bullet by Zachary Quinto were both entertaining stories. Then I moved on to Begin Again by Emma Lord which I really enjoyed. Then I finished a book published by HarperCollins and I will wait for the strike to be settled to talk more about that one. I jumped right into my Books from the Backlog pick this week and read Second Star by Alyssa B Sheimel which I liked but wanted more closure. I finished Locklands by Robert Jackson Bennett on New Year’s Eve and thought it was a fitting end to the trilogy.
I am almost done with Court of the Vampire Queen by Katee Robert and I am a bit surprised by just how much I am enjoying it.
