Good morning everybody!
Sarah update: Well the Bout of Books readathon was happening all this past week, so obviously this week was just full of awesome. I don’t even remember what I did most days… ran a lot of errands mostly. Like FINALLY going to the post office and mailing the stuff I had to mail. And sending in some paperwork for some stuff. And yeah. Things. (I’m only on my first cup of coffee here people, don’t expect me to be articulate.) Oh yeah and my work schedule was all wonky and I worked 5 days even though it was my normal amount of hours, I just worked like 2 half shifts. That wasn’t so bad, and actually gave me a lot of my reading time this week.
Hmmm what else… Oh yeah this week there was a lot of Dexter-watching, cause season 6 came out on DVD on Tuesday, and I’m pretty sure that for date night that’s what we’ll be doing. The honeyman loves his Dexter and I’m sure is going nuts because we haven’t been able to watch it since my sis got here. My little sis and L came into town Friday night, which of course involved lots of hilarity. After she got here we went out to dinner with my little brother at the Olive Garden and that was fun. L is taking little steps now, which is cute, and he has this big adorable goofy smile with a gap between his two front teeth. I’m enjoying this time with him this weekend cause now that’s he’s over a year old, his cute factor is going to start going wayyyy down. Saturday night we went and had dinner at my older sister’s house, which was cool and L got to play with his older cousins, and I was the only one there that didn’t have kids to watch and THAT was awesome. And today there’s some big fair and yay! Good thing I took today off
Bookish update: I love readathons. Just love em. They’re so motivating. I’ve already read more this month than I last month, and there’s still so much of this month left! Anyhoo, I finished 3 books during the readathon: White Raven by Irina Lopatina, A Witch Before Dying by Heather Blake, and A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. A Discovery of Witches was surprisingly very awesome and I have so much to say about it, but that review is going to have to wait for tomorrow. I already have the sequel, Shadow of Night, on my shelf waiting to be read. Part of me doesn’t want to start it yet though, cause I’ll finish it and want to read the third book but there’s not even a date or title for the third book yet.
Also, The Moonstone readalong is still going awesomely, even though I kind of slacked on commenting around this week cause you know, all the busy and readathoning. I’ve been taking part in a lot of readalongs lately, and I’m kind of struggling with whether or not I should write a final, spoiler-free review after the readalong is over. Cause otherwise the “review” consists of all four or five posts full of spoilers, and that’s not cool. So… I don’t know. I’m thinking about it. In the meantime though, I’m going to keep September readalong-free cause I’m kind of burning myself out with them all.
ANYWAYS I should stop rambling to go get ready to have a day full of fun and taking a bajillion pics of my cute little nephew. Also, Gabby keeps trying to get my coffee and I need to defend it.
Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
