Happenings of Week 16 of 2022
This has been such an interesting week, our weather here has been so bi-polar, I swear I feel all over the place. One day it snows, then it rains, then it’s 70 degrees warm and sunshine and then we have a cold overcast at 35 degrees. Utah weather is a struggle in April. It’s like it can’t decide if it wants to shrug off winter or embrace spring. I love the rain though so I wouldn’t complain if we were receiving lots of rain, I am really ready for warmer temperatures and for everything to blossom. I know I have kinda been out of it, I would like to blame my blood pressure, but honestly, I found a show and binged on it. haha, this is why I don’t keep streaming subscriptions because it’s too much temptation. And it was like I want to read and do blog stuff but I can’t stop watching the show (for those curious, its Walking Dead, and even though Zombies aren’t my thing I was hooked, and yes I have now watched all but the last season, it’s calmer now and I am reading again so there is that). It does feel like I have been waking up from a drugged sleep though which is probably why I don’t binge hardly ever. And now I am behind on my Goodreads reading goal so I have some work to do this week. Work has been pretty good though, nothing really new there, we did move around the office, as they expanded the space, and I like where we are at more now, with much better lighting. I also treated myself to getting my nails done. I like having long nails, but my natural nails will crack off once they get too long and I hate that haha, but I found this really nice clean nail spa with chandeliers and everything, so I found my spot. And they have this soothing music that is just the perfect vibe.
Bookish Posts and Books Read of the Week of April 10-April 16
Book Read-When He’s An Alpha by Suzanne Wright (Review releasing soon) but I will say I enjoy it but it’s a typical Wright shifter book. Is it just me or do they all feel the same at this point?
I am just finishing up The Warrior Maiden and I am really liking this Mulan retelling, its so interesting, although pretty close to the Disney movie. I got What If I never as a freebie, but dang its good and has this sexy elevator scene and the hero is a ex FBI agent turned author. I received Wicked Beauty from Sourcebooks, so I am excited for this one. I found the Mary Jo Putney on a whim from my library subscription, and I read a sample and I was so intrigued and pulled into the story I just had to pick it up.
