Things are still busy, I’m still behind, and I didn’t get much read this week. However, I did get some approvals (and I’m at that point where I’m equal parts excited and “oh my gods, why do I keep doing this to myself” when they come through!). The goal today is to try and get some reviews written, but we’ll see how it goes.
The past week has been rather uneventful. The weather has cooled down, even if it is still a bit humid. Yesterday was a beautifully atmospheric, foggy morning and today it’s supposed to rain most of the day. While I do love the rain, I’ve got some chairs to refinish and the weather is really not helping. Wouldn’t it be lovely if we had a clicker for the weather so we could change the weather to what suits us? Or at least pause what is coming for a few days so that a project isn’t continually delayed?
Which reminds me, my youngest daughter and I are going to a Girl Scouts camping event this weekend, and she is SO excited. At the last minute, our troop leaders were able to get us into a cabin, so we don’t have to mess with tents! Not that I’m afraid of tent building, but more so that I’m afraid of trying to build tents with a zillion 7 and 8 year old girls running around. 😉
But I digress, I present to thee, my week in reading:
Finished Last Week
Started Last Week
Approvals This Week
Did you happen to notice the 5 million new approvals? Do you know whose fault that is? Well, mostly mine, but I mean, you are not without guilt here. I’ve been trying to stay away from NetGalley and Edelweiss and have been rather successful at that evasion, but then I go and read all of your wonderful reviews and see the brilliant covers (stop with all the gorgeous, sparkly snow, holiday season covers people!), and I think “I’ll just check to see if that one amazing-sounding book is still available for request” and then BAM! I’m on NetGalley for an hour and my itchy little index finger is mindlessly requesting all the pretties. You are all a bad influence (in the best way possible!)!
Have you read any of these? Looking forward to reading any of them? What are you most looking forward to reading this week?
