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 slipped A Spindle Splintered (Fractured Fables #1) by Alix E. Harrow in early in the week and just finished reading Erin Sterling's The Ex Hex, both of which I enjoyed.
I wish I could tell you I made a lot of progress in Nancy Marie Brown's The Real Valkyrie: The Hidden History of Viking Warrior Women, but the truth is I barely picked it up this past week. I was more in the mood for escape and something light. To be honest, I find myself going back and forth about whether I will finish this one.
I am looking forward to reading this month's TBR List winner (thank you to all who voted!). Three other of my books also vying for my attention right now are Mango, Mambo, and Murder (A Caribbean Kitchen Mystery #1) by Raquel V. Reyes, The Outlaw Demon Wails (The Hollows #6), and The Keeper of Night (#1) by Kylie Lee Baker. I am having a hard time deciding which direction to go. They all sound good!
What I Have Been Watching
My husband and I decided to check out The Morning Show starring Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. We have only seen the first three episodes but are enjoying it so far. There's so much talent in the show! We watched the season finale of Ted Lasso. I talked my family into watching the first couple episodes of The Wonder Years reboot. Reboots do not always work, but I highly recommend this one.
Off the Blog
I wish I had something exciting to share, but the week was fairly normal. The new supervisor was out all week and I found myself working quite a bit of overtime as a result. There was also the usual shuttling of Mouse to her various extracurricular activities. My husband, daughter and I had a little music party last night, joining our Spotify lists and taking turns playing songs. It made for a fun family night--even if we stayed up much later than we should have.
Catching the morning breeze
Tell me what you have been up to! What are you reading, listening to and watching? How was your week?
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).
This week's poll was very close between two of the contenders. The cozy mystery In the Company of Witches by Auralee Wallace came in third place with three votes. C.J. Cooke's The Lighthouse Witches, with its historical Gothic themes, came in second with eight votes. The leaves Cackle by Rachel Harrison, which won this month's poll with 9 votes! I hear the spiders will give me nightmares. I can't wait to see for myself!
Thank you for voting! I hope you all have a wonderful week! Happy Reading!
