The Sunday Salon- Catching Up!

Good morning Sunday Saloners! I've been absent for much of this week due to a nasty flu bug that went through our entire household. Yuck! Plus, my daughter managed to get a double ear infection which is no fun. I've been disinfecting my house like crazy to get rid of all of those nasty germs and trying to catch up on my laundry. Which means it has been a quiet week on my blog as I just haven't been up to posting.

I have been reading though and thought I would share what I've been reading lately. The first book that I finished this week was Wild Highland Magic by Kendra Leigh Castle. I have loved this series so far and this book didn't disappoint. I won't be posting a review until next month but suffice it to say that if you've enjoyed the first two books in this series you will like this one.

After I finished this one is about the time that everyone got sick. And I needed a comfort read to get me through which meant I picked up Divided in Death by J.D. Robb. I love these books and just gobble them up. I literally flew through this one and can't wait to read the next one. There is just something about this series that makes me feel like I am visiting old friends when I read one of these books. Great read!

Finally, last night I finished The Girl She Used To Be by David Cristofano. It was good for this being the author's first book but I just didn't love it. I'll share my thoughts more in depth in my review which I will try to post soon. I liked it but just not as much as I expected to after reading other reviews on it.

All in all, it was a great reading week for me even if we were all sick for a portion of it. I haven't quite decided what to read next but I am leaning towards The Rest Falls Away by Colleen Gleason. It is due at the library soon and I really want to read it before it goes back :) I'm focusing on laundry today but I think I'll try and write up a couple of my reviews for the week. Then I won't have to when I come home from work and have a million other things that I should be doing :) I'll be stopping by to visit everyone later on this afternoon. Have a great Sunday!

  2. Sorry you and your family have been unwell, hope this coming week is better.

  5. Sorry you were all sick Sam. Not the best when it hits everyone. Hope you're all on the mend now. Have a good week!

  6. Sorry you've got a sick house right now, not fun! I just finished The Rest Falls Away this morning and really liked it though I had a few problems.

  7. Our family got hit with a stomach bug this week - so I know what you went through - it hit hard and fast.

    I have GOT to start the JD Robb series - I have had the first book sitting in my TBR stack forever.

    I like Kendra Leigh Castle series too - I haven't read the third book yet - but looking forward to it.

  8. Trish- I have so many reviews that I need to is getting to be a bit ridiculous :)

    Kara- It was hard and fast! You do HAVE to give the Robb series a try..I bet that you would like it. You'll enjoy the 3rd book in the Castle series as well IMO :)

  9. I've been anxious to read the final book of Colleen's; I hope our library has it! I also hope that you feel better soon.

  10. Hope that you're all feeling better now. :)

  13. Happy to hear you are up and about again. I am sooo behind on my reviews as well. It's terrible! So many books so little time to blog about them.

  14. Strlady- That is the truth! I can't complain as I'm getting a lot of reading done but I just can't seem to catch up on the reviews :)


Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment. I appreciate each and every one of them :)
