This was a pretty normal week. President’s Day on Monday was incredibly slow at work so we ended up leaving at lunchtime. My daughter and I spent the afternoon working on a puzzle and listening to audiobooks which was much better than sitting at a computer. I was alone at the office on Tuesday and Wednesday. I would rather not go into the office at all but being there alone is the next best option. I had a regular doctor’s appointment on Thursday so I mentioned my shoulder pain. I ended up getting an x-ray which was normal (exactly what I expected). I have some anti-inflammatory medication to take to see if it can offer some relief.
I tried something new last week and wrote the week’s reviews over the weekend so that I didn’t have to spend so much time during the week prepping blog posts. I am going to try to continue doing that since it made the week much less stressful for me. I added a lot of books to my review pile again this week. To be fair, publishers surprised me with three of the books but I am going to need to slow down with the requests for a bit.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I finished 6 books again this week. I thought Best Served Hot by Amanda Elliot was a fantastic foodie romance. Dog Days Forever by Shannon Richard was filled with wonderful characters and a nice assortment of dogs which made me very happy. I can finally say that I have read The Shining by Stephen King and I liked it, although not as much as some of his other books. It took a bit to really get hooked by I’ll Take Everything You Have by James Klise but once I did, I didn’t want to put it down. I thought the middle-grade novel, How to Get Away with Myrtle by Elizabeth C. Bunce, was a fantastic and rather complex mystery. I loved The Soulmate by Sally Hepworth and found all of the story’s twists and turns exciting.
I am loving Conquer the Kingdom by Jennifer Estep so far and cannot wait to see which direction the story takes us. I have just started listening to She Wouldn’t Change a Thing by Sarah Adlakha and think that the book is off to a strong start.
