Weekly Wrap Up #416

I am really excited to participate in The Sunday Post hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and Stacking the Shelves hosted by Reading Reality.

My Life

Another whirlwind week is in the books. I didn’t work at the bookstore quite as much as usual so I guess I had a bit of a break in that area. My daughter who lives in Ohio paid us a quick visit on Tuesday. We actually didn’t get to see much of her at all. She went to a concert near our house with some friends and stayed the night at our house. We saw her for about 2 hours before she headed to the concert. She came back home a little after midnight which upset the dogs. She headed back to Ohio as I left for work the next morning.

Thanks to my loud dogs, I didn’t sleep well the night she was home, so I was dragging all day on Wednesday and crashed early that night. The rest of the week was spent doing exciting things like doing laundry, making dinner, and walking the dogs.

How was your week?

What I’m Reading

I only finished 2 audiobooks this week. I enjoyed You’d Look Better as a Ghost by Joanna Wallace. It seems like I have a thing for violent humor these days. I Want You More by Swan Huntley was a wonderful combination of thriller and twisted love story.

Of course, I didn’t pick up The Night Ends with Fire by K.X. Song this week. I plan to squeeze in this audiobook in the next week or two. Even though I have already read Winter Lost by Patricia Briggs, I decided to try the audiobook, and it is just as good as I remembered. I randomly picked up This Ordinary Stardust by Alan Townsend but haven’t read enough to form an opinion yet.

Books Added

The Seaside Sisters by Pamela Kelley (Publisher); Cuckoo by Gretchen Felker- Martin (Publisher); Horror Movie by Paul Tremblay (Publisher)

  1. Well at least you got the extra rest the next day? I’d be happy to have a week where something doesn’t break, stop working or fall apart. It seems like I have had a rash of those disruptions and the resulting costs.

    Anne – Books of My Heart This is my Sunday Post

  2. Why does it take so long to get over a bad night of sleep? I’m dragging for what feels like weeks afterwards. The Pamela Kelly book looks so fun and summery and I love the title for You’d Look Better as a Ghost. I hope you’re having a great week!
