This week has been interesting, still on the lookout for job hunting, but I have some interviews this week. I am not too worried about jobs though, I have two more weeks of PTO coming, but I hate being at home not working, I am going stir crazy. haha But hopefully I can find something good soon.

Reading has been really great this week, really devouring audiobooks this past week. With all the job hunting, I am breezing through them right now. And I am almost finished with getting caught up on all my backlogged books to be reviewed on Netgalley.

Grab It Up: Book Releases for August 31 2021 

Currently Reading

This is one of the few that are left for my backlisted books to review for Netgalley. And lucky enough I found it at my local library. And I do like these inked contemporary romance themes. And I have heard some good things about this author I am intrigued by.

Currently Listening

Highland Gladiator is a book I have been needing to read so badly, but when I saw that Brad Wills narrates this one (he is one of my favorites to listen to for historical audiobooks) I knew I wanted to listen to it.

    You’ve had a busy week on the blog. Good luck with the job hunt.

  2. Sam@WLABB

    That’s great that you have a little cushion while you job hunt. Good luck with your interviews and your search! I am so scared to read the Hoang book. The reviews are all over the place, but maybe it will be ok for me, since I have set expectations for the type of story it is. Maybe. Hope you enjoy it

    • Lover of Romance

      Thank you Sam. I am so scared to read that Hoang book too, its why I keep putting it off and I have seen the mixed reviews so I am so nervous but I need to read it over the next couple of days if I can get the time in for it. haha

  3. Greg

    Good luck with the job search! At least you’re getting through some books! 🙂

    Love the Stepback cover.

    • Lover of Romance

      Thank you Greg. I appreciate that. And I like that stepback too. I love these paranormal stepbacks these books used to have.

  4. Sophie

    Wow it seems that indeed job hunting is good for reading! 🙂 But I do hope you find a good job soon because I’d hate being inactive too 😉

    • Lover of Romance

      Yes it actually has been doubly productive in that respect haha I am going stir crazy to be honest. While its nice to have more relaxing days, I would prefer to have a job to go to every day.

  5. Samantha

    Good luck with the job hunt!! I’m off to check out your review of Bombshell. I’m very curious!!!

  6. Rachel

    Good luck in the job search! I have The Heart Principle coming next too. Hope we both love it!

  7. Tanya @ Girl Plus Books

    Good luck on the interviews this week, Renee! You’re really cranking out those backlog book reviews – go you! I hope Highland Gladiator ends up being a hit for you. It’s always extra special when a favorite narrator is involved.

  8. Sophia Rose

    Big well wishes as you hit those interviews, Renee. Woohoo on knocking out so many backlisted reviews. I enjoyed Highland Gladiator and hope you do as well.

    Have a good week!
