Sunday Post Meme"
Happy Sunday everyone! It has been awhile since I last posted. It has been pretty darn busy as of late and it isn't going to end any time soon. Reality is starting to set in as my oldest gets ready to graduate from eighth grade in a little over a week. I say this all the time it feels like, but I cannot believe that he is going into high school already. He is lifting for high school football after school four days a week. My daughter's softball is going strong as well. We have tournaments about every other weekend. She has improved so much this season - it has been a joy to watch! The youngest is also very busy with his baseball season. Soccer ended for him which was a bit of a relief....so many practices and games with all of this going on! I'm not complaining though as my husband and I love every minute of watching them play. But this is why I am largely absent from the blogging world. My weekends are filled and if they aren't I'm just playing catch up with everything. I've toyed with shutting the blog down but I just can't do it. Who else would I talk books with? Maybe I will be a very spotty blogger for awhile but I will still be here. I read all of your blogs even if I don't comment that often. I am taking the rest of this month off. I have a quiet Sunday planned for today and I'm going to work on scheduling some posts out for next month. That seems to work best for me so I'm going to try working on June's posts and count this month as a loss. It happens!
My reading has slowed down to a trickle. I don't know what my deal is lately but I sure haven't been reading like I usually do. I think I'm at least ten books behind on my Goodread's challenge. I'm not stressing though- it is what it is at this point. At least it means that I'm not as far behind on writing up reviews as I usually am. So there is a positive! I'm currently in the middle of three separate books:
Love & Death in Burgundy by Susan C. Shea is one that I've just barely begun. I'm reading it mainly on my phone but it is my current kindle read. The publicist emailed me about this one and I liked the sound of it so I couldn't resist downloading it. It's too early to tell you much more than that other than I'm loving the French setting.
Midnight Rescue by Elle Kennedy is my current print read and a library book. In the hopes of jump starting my reading, I decided that I would read whatever I wanted to in May. No "must reads" or anything like that. I've gotten this book from the library multiple times but finally decided to give it a try. I'm about 3/4th's of the way through and just haven't sat down and finished it. Which I really need to do already! I'm enjoying it for the most part although the subject matter isn't always to read about. Honestly, that is part of the reason why I still haven't finished as I'm a bit nervous for what is to come.
Locked In by Kerry Wilkinson is also a print read and one that I bought awhile back but am just now finally reading. I'm about halfway through this one but kind of stalled out on it. I plan to go back to it as it is good....I'm just being a really moody reader right now. It happens and I didn't want to force myself to read as this just turns into a reading slump.
Apparently even when I'm not reading I'm quite capable of downloading books from NetGalley. Sigh....I sure hope the next #COYER challenge is going to be starting up soon. I'm definitely going to need it. I'm really hoping that I can turn my reading troubles around pretty soon. I find that I stress a lot more when I don't read as much. I'm off to go work on my laundry piles to get this week started off right. I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend. I'll see you in June!
