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.
What a weekend. I was angry and saddened when I heard about the mass shooting in Buffalo--all those lives lost because of one person's hatred and idiotic ideology. And then to have it followed up by other shootings so soon after. These are just in a long line of other ones. I have no words right now. My ballot came in the mail this past week for the June election. You can bet I will be voting.
This post would have been up sooner but it's been kind of hectic around here. Late nights Mouse finishing up school reports and me putting in overtime due to staff shortages. Then on Friday, Mouse and my mom were in a car accident. They are both fine, my mom with a minor injury and Mouse a bit sore after (the other driver is okay too). Hopefully they won't develop any further symptoms as the week wears on. It was quite a scare though, getting that call about the accident and for them having been in the middle of it. I am so glad they are okay and weren't seriously hurt.
I hope you had a nice weekend!
The votes are in! Thank you to everyone who voted and helped me choose my next book to read. The Old Woman with the Knife by Gu Byeong-mo got four votes. A Darker Shade of Magic (Shades of Magic #1) by V.E. Schwab and The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels (Dangerous Damsels #1) by India Holton were tied for much of the week, each with nine votes. The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels won in the end, however, with ten votes.
Thank you for voting! What will you be reading next?
My TBR List is hosted by the awesome Michelle at 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 let you vote for my next read during that month. My review will follow (unfortunately, not likely in the same month, but eventually--that's all I can promise).

I'm glad the accident wasn't worse. I hope there are no lingering consequences. I enjoyed The Botanist's Guide to Parties and Poisons when I read the ARC. Come see my week here. Happy reading!ReplyDelete

Yes shootings fill me with great sadness and especially the hate that initiates them. Books look like good reading.ReplyDelete
Kathryn - It seems like every day there is another story about a shooting. It's so devastating.Delete
I have a Botanist's Guide to Parties and Poisons on my TBR list. And I hope The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels is as good as it sounds!ReplyDelete
Lark - I enjoyed both!Delete
It's really sad about what happened in Buffalo.ReplyDelete
Mary - It really is. And Uvalde.Delete
The Buffalo shooting saddened and angered me too. Also the response it's getting from the people who share the stupid ideology of the shooter. I'm so afraid of the direction our country, and even the world, is heading right now.ReplyDelete
Jenni Elyse - The direction our country is going really scares me too.Delete
Car accidents are so jarring, both physically and emotionally. I am glad to hear they are doing alright and hope nothing sneaks up on them.ReplyDelete
Helen - Thank you!Delete
I'm so glad you and Mouse are OK! So scary. I hope this week has been restful for you both.ReplyDelete
I love Victoria Schwabb. Darker Shade of Magic is on my list for this summer. The Wisteria book's cover looks so fun. I'll have to check it out.
Heather - No rest for the wicked, sadly. I hope you are well!Delete
