Seriously, today is all about the snow. Was it just a few weeks ago that I was complaining about the lack of snow?? I'm pretty sure that I should have kept my mouth closed as we are in the midst of a winter storm. An inch an hour? Possibility of 15 inches? Yeah, this is what we get for me opening my big mouth. My kids are absolutely loving it though and have already been outside playing in the piles. Me not so much as my back is already sore from shoveling. What a workout though! Here is a picture just of the snow when I first woke up this morning (there is a lot more out there now):
Plans for today include lots of shoveling and time spent outside. I also have a house to clean, laundry to do, and certainly I will be fitting in some relaxation time as well. I need to fit in some quality reading time too as I'm currently reading three different books and would like to make some progress. January wasn't the best month numbers wise for me so I'm hoping to read a bit more in February. That being said I'm not stressing about it as quality wise January was a really great month. Not a single bad book in the bunch which had me very happy. Let's move on to my reading update though. In the past two weeks I have finished the following books:
India Black by Carol K. Carr was an absolute delight to read! I loved this one to pieces and cannot wait to continue on with her adventures. I really could not put this one down and blew through the pages. I should never have waited this long to read this book. A historical mystery filled with both spies and intrigue....this was a book that I instantly adored.
The Girl With a Clock For a Heart by Peter Swanson was also another really great read and quite thrilling as well. I'm participating in a blog tour for this one so I don't want to say a lot until my review but it is definitely a book to check out! The pacing of this one is quite intense and kept me on my toes. My thoughts will be posted on the 16th of this month if you are interested.
I'm now currently reading the following books:
They are all completely different from one another but that is a good thing. Slave to Sensation is my current print book and the one that I am having the hardest time setting down. I've been meaning to start this series for years. In Flames is for an upcoming blog tour and is my current e-read on my Paperwhite. I have no clue what is going on in this one yet I can't seem to stop reading. The Happiness Project is going to deserve a post of its' own. I'm reading this one before bed but I really should have a notebook near me when I read it as there are just so many things. Like I said, I will write up a post later for my thoughts just while reading it. Lot of really great reading ahead of me for sure!
I was doing so good until then I wasn't. Here are all of the books that have come into my house in the past two weeks. They are all from the publishers except Mistress of Rome which is a contest win (and one that I just cannot wait to read. It sounds so good!). Thank you Becca! I'm not even showing you the ebooks because I have failed in self control. Failed! So I will share those next week instead when hopefully you have forgotten about all of these :)
I'm off to scrub my kitchen down and then shovel (AGAIN!). I will be by to comment later as I'm getting a late start today thanks to this weather. We WILL be watching the Superbowl later although I will be reading while watching bits and pieces of it. If the Bears aren't there then I don't care. Ha!
Happy Sunday and Happy Reading!
