Happy Anniversary to me! And to my sweetie too! We've been married 42 years today and I can hardly remember where all those years went. Seems like yesterday that I was packing to fly to Las Vegas to get married. (I think we were ahead of the game on destination weddings. lol) Let the celebrations begin………(probably take out pizza or perhaps burgers at our favorite burger joint tonight….we really do it up big, you know!) While we both read our books today. lol
Naturally, I sent out envelopes this week (and a few last week which I failed to show you.)
And then, of course, I ordered a few more books. (I know, don't yell at me! I do have to stop this crazy buying! I have at least 25 now in a stack to read on my dining room table and I think I still have some that have yet to be delivered from Amazon.)
Thankfully, I was able to finish 6 books this week. (Well, almost……I did skim two after I had completed about 150 pages in each. For some reason, they just didn't "do it" for me.)
"Looking for Salvation" Debut by Susan Gregg Gilmore
"Obitchuary" Debut by Stephanie Hayes
"The Shadow Tracer" by Meg Gardiner
"Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt" Debut by Beth Hoffman
"Landline" by Rainbow Rowell
"Life Drawing" Debut by Robin Black
# 2 and #3 were the ones where I skimmed the endings…..especially "Obitchuary". That author tried too hard to be funny. Sad! It could have been so good! "Saving Cee Cee Honeycutt" is an older book. My sister recommended it to me as one of her favorites of all times, and it was okay, but I compared it to the "Mitford Series" by Jan Karon which I read years ago and enjoyed tons more!!! The highlight of the bunch this week was the first one, "Looking for Salvation" by Susan Gregg Gilmore. It was a light, fun read that made me smile! The last two are new releases that I borrowed from the library and if I were you, I wouldn't bother. Both had decent reviews and I thought they would be good, but I was wrong! Maybe I'm just too old for some of this crazy stuff?? Last night though, I started reading "A Man Called Ove" which is another new release and so far, I am loving it, so who knows? It too, is another debut, so time will tell.
So, that's about the news here. Have a fun week my friends and stay well! And thanks for visiting! I know I'm not sewing now and you might be missing that and all I can say is I'm sorry. Not in the mood lately, I guess! Hopefully, by the time I read more books, I'll be inspired again.
