Last week was a bit strange. It was my last partial work from home week but I ended up going up to the office on one of my WFH days anyway due to circumstances. I also am going through some personal things that I’d rather not bring up here so as not to air all my dirty laundry but blogging duties might take a bit of a back seat now and then as I work through some things. Don’t worry, I’m not really going anywhere, but if you see a couple of post-less days here or there or if I’m behind on blog hopping more than normal (so so sorry for being behind again!) then I’m just devoting some time to other pursuits. 🙂
So, yeah, I had some ups and downs last week. One of the ups was driving down to the beach for the day. Had an excellent time. Took a book down there with me but didn’t get a lot of reading done as I spent a lot of time in the ocean bopping up and down on the waves. It was so relaxing. I wish I could be in the water every day–I’m very fond of swimming.
I read three historical romance novels and one SFF novel. That’s still a lot of reading but it doesn’t feel like I did a lot of reading at all. And I also didn’t finish the books I’m ‘supposed’ to be reading. So. Argh! lol
I didn’t make much progress with The Obsidian Tower by Melissa Caruso once again. I think I’m something like 6 or 7% into it. I don’t know why I can’t let myself get carried away but this story but I suspect it’s just my mood. I even had a hard time reading one of my romance novels so maybe I just don’t feel like reading. Anywho. Hoping I’ll feel up to it this week.
I’m about halfway through Valor’s Choice by Tanya Huff. This is the first in her Confederate series and there’s a lot of set up in this one before things start to happen. That being said, I’m enjoying it. I hope to finish this one up in a day or two, just in time for my next audio release to arrive.
On the 30th my audio pre-order of The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty will arrive and I’m super excited for that! So I’ll be diving into that one as soon as I finish up the Huff book. Can’t wait to see how this series wraps up–it’s been a wild ride so far.
Now, this is what I intend to read this week, but who knows what I’ll actually read? Everything is up in the air these days depending on my mood. What are you reading this week? Leave a note in the comments, I’d love to chat!
