My Week in Review

Holy moly! August is flying by, and I'm ok with it. I have been enjoying the cooler mornings so much and am looking forward to more and more days like that. 

I have to say, it was quite nice to attend a gathering. The food was good, there was cake, and I saw some people I have not seen in quite a while. Good times. My sister liked her gift too. I had originally wanted to get her tickets to a show, but, you know, 2020. She is a big lover of decorating her home for any and all holidays, and she loves Disney. I found this at The Bradford Exchange, and I know she wouldn't buy it for herself. 

Now that I have more time, I feel less productive. This has always been an issue with me. I  have been skipping discussion posts even though I have topics. I think I am falling into the doldrums. I need to work on my motivation. 

My daughter sent me this picture, and I thought it was very sweet.

I have so many books I want to buy, but I am holding out for some Amazon credits. I got this promo, that if I read 15 days during the month of August, I would get a $5 credit. According to my Kindle insights, I have read every day on my kindle for 753 days in a row. I think that $5 credit is mine. 


What I Read Last Week

I had NO DNFs this week! This is the first time in quite a while that I finished everything I started. My favorite book this week was The Brave.  It was a very beautiful story about a preteen dealing with his OCD and bullying. I loved that the author included parts of his Ojibwe culture, and it was filled with wonderful characters. It's had a lot of really emotional bits, but the overall vibe is positive and uplifting. 

Making Friends with Alice Dyson was also a hit. The beauty was in the sweet and tender moments she shared with me, as well as in all those times of reflection. I was touched and moved and you know I cried. I loved Nwosu's other book as well, Taking Down Evelyn Tait

The Roommate came in a close third. I am so impressed with where the author took that premise. It had all those rom-com feels, but also had quite a bit of depth. I was really excited to see that the author's follow up will be set in this world and cannot wait to return. 


What I Am Currently Reading

I am excited to be back in Moose Springs and delighted that this adventure includes some quality moose time as well. 

Sparrow is one of my overdue ARCs, so I thought, why not listen to the audio.
