I am tired. My day job has been a bit busier than normal and it still takes me forever to do anything in the new software so I just keep falling further and further behind. I will eventually catch up but I don’t know when that will be. I volunteered to work 4 shifts per week at the bookstore until Christmas. I worked Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday this past week and my schedule will be the same next week.
My husband and I celebrated our 24th anniversary this past week. We didn’t celebrate beyond acknowledging the day. Maybe next year we’ll try to do something.
How was your week?
What I’m Reading
I finished 5 books this week. I started the week with Barnes & Noble’s Book of the Year – The Heaven & Earth Grocery Store by James McBride. I didn’t hate it but it won’t be my book of the year. I wanted something different so I picked up Butcher & Blackbird by Brynne Weaver and had a fantastic time with it. I liked The Mystery Guest by Nita Prose even more than I liked the first book in the series. I thought that I Want It That Way by Karen Grey was a solid romance. Housebroke by Jaci Burton was really good and I loved that the dogs were a big part of the story.
I didn’t listen to Alone with You in the Ether by Olivie Blake at all this week but I hope to get back to it soon. I wanted to listen to something that I wouldn’t have to review so I picked up Danger Zone by Brooke Blaine and Ella Frank which is a spicy gay Top Gun retelling.
