My Life

This was a nice calm week. I spent the week completing my regular routine of going to work, walking the dogs, reading as if my life depended on it, and trying to make sure that everyone in the household was fed. There was one day that we had a ton of rain which meant the dogs didn’t get their walks and were full of energy all night. In other words, they drove us nuts until the rain stopped and they finally got a walk the next day. I have just started working on a puzzle and am looking forward to working on it more this weekend while listening to a book.

How was your week?

What I’m Reading

I finished 6 books again this week. Maybe 6 is my lucky number right now! I absolutely loved Conquer the Kingdom by Jennifer Estep and found it next to impossible to put down once I reach a certain point. She Wouldn’t Change a Thing by Sarah Adlakha was really a great and rather original time travel story that gets bonus points for the fabulous ending. I had such a great time with Float Plan by Trish Doller that I decided to jump right into The Suite Spot. I really enjoyed the fourth book in the Charley Davidson series, Fourth Grave Beneath My Feet by Darynda Jones, and am really looking forward to working my way through the rest of the series this year. I decided to do another round of immersion reading (listening to the audio while following along in the book) with The God of Endings by Jacqueline Holland and I was completely impressed that this sweeping story of an immortal woman was the author’s debut.

I have only read a couple of chapters of The Foxglove King by Hannah Whitten but it is off to a good start and I cannot wait to dive more deeply into the story.

  1. Yeah that rainy day was nuts! Just all day practically! Was glad that it was just rain though, it did make for relaxing reading time! But I can imagine you didn’t get any done with anxious dogs wanting a walk!

    Nice new reads! I still can’t believe I haven’t read Bones’ first book! Hopefully I can get to that this year! I’m excited for Hannah Whitten’s new book as I plan to go to her signing this week! And oooh Jessie Mihalik’s new one! Excited for that one too! That series has been a ton of fun! Hope you enjoy all of your new reads!

    Here’s my StS

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. Are any of your dogs those breeds that need to run a lot? My niece has an Australian Shepherd and that dog has energy for days. So glad you enjoyed She Wouldn’t Change a Thing. I sobbed my face off, but it was beautiful at the same time. Hope you adore reading Tanner & Louise. I thought that book was fabulous

  3. I also just received Capture the Sun so I am really excited for that one! I am so happy that you loved that Jennifer Estep one, I really need to look into reading those.

  4. Perfect sounding week with mostly quiet activities and work. Glad you can have one of those now and then. Wow, six this week! You’re really cooking.
    Some good ones in the haul, too. You’re getting a lot of action on your instagram posts.

  5. My cat isn’t happy when he can’t get outside either. Even getting out a little bit is good for him and that’s all he wants to do right now with the cold and snow. Enjoy your puzzle! I have one I started at home that I won’t be getting to for at least a week and a half since we won’t be there. 🙂

  6. It feels like it rained every day for the entire month of February. We are just now seeing the sun! Glad you had a nice normal week and kept everyone fed. That can definitely be a challenge because at least in my house the people keep needing to eat and requiring meals every day! Have a great week!
