I am linking up to the Sunday Post hosted by Kim of Caffeinated Book Reviewer and The Sunday Salon (TSS) hosted by Deb Nance of Readerbuzz where participants recap our week, talk about what we are reading, share any new books that have come our way, and whatever else we want to talk about. I am also linking It's Monday! What Are you Reading? hosted by Kathryn of Book Date where readers talk about what they have been, are and will be reading.
In reading . . .
I finished reading Witches Get Stitches by Juliette Cross this week. It is the third book in the author's Stay a Spell romance series featuring a family of witches. This one focused on Violet and the werewolf she keeps trying to resist. It was a steamy and fun read.
I was not ready to leave New Orleans and the Savoie sisters just yet and so dived in the first story in Juliette Cross's Stay a Spell anthology, Walking in a Witchy Wonderland. I also have started reading a nonfiction book, The Real Valkyrie: The Hidden History of Viking Warrior Women by Nancy Marie Brown.
Mouse and I are still reading and enjoying Tilly and the Bookwanderers by Anna James. Mouse recently also picked up The Little White Horse by Elizabeth Goudge and has been reading it to me off and on.
Next up will likely be my September TBR List winner. I can't wait to read it! Chapter and Curse, the first in a new cozy mystery series by Elizabeth Penney, is also calling my name and I may not be able to resist it much longer.
What I Have Been Watching
I have been watching more of the same. I am on the second seasons of Grimm and Charmed. My family and I checked out the first episode of Doogie Kamealoha, M.D., reboot of the 1990's Doogie Howser television show. I think we are going to like this show. It has some similarities to the original but is very much it's own, featuring a 16 year old doctor trying to balance life as a teenager and that of a doctor with a full time job.
Off the Blog
It was a busy week but with the perk of an extra weekend day due to the Labor Day Holiday. At work, I sat in on interviews for a new supervisor early in the week. The candidates all seemed promising. The catch for my office is always the hours--the available shift is not a preferred one and tends to scare prospects away more often than not. Most of the people interviewed seemed okay with the hours/days though, and my manager made a selection Friday afternoon. The new supervisor will start the middle of October.
Mouse met with her Girl Scout troop this past week for their first meeting of the season. The weather was perfect for the outdoor meeting, held at a park. All their meetings last season were via Zoom and so it was nice to see everyone in person again. The girls have grown so much this past year.
It is a busy weekend for us. My mom is in town and Mouse had her usual dance classes on top of a Nutcracker audition (it went well) Saturday. Tomorrow she is attending a double birthday party for two of her friends. They are going mini golfing and then will have doughnuts in a nearby park.
This next week is my week in the office. I will miss my furry work buddies.
Sleeping on the job
Thank you for helping me decide what book from my TBR collection I should read next:
Because Reading. It’s a fun way to choose a book from your TBR pile to read. The 1st Saturday of every month, I will list 3 books I am considering reading and take a poll as to which you think I should read. I will read the winner that month. My review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).
I seem to be collecting Kate Quinn's novels and am grateful for your help in deciding which of her books to read first. It was really close with The Huntress coming in with 4 votes, The Alice Network with 5, and the winner, The Rose Code with 6 votes.
Thank you for voting! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Happy Reading!
