The Sunday Post/It's Monday! What Are You Reading?




Check out the The Caffeinated Book Review for the Sunday Post
It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date

It's been quite a week or so for the United States, with all of these natural disasters and fires. I hope that everyone is staying safe. Thoughts and prayers to all of you caught in the way of hurricanes, flooding, fire, and earthquakes.

Thank you for the kind comments and well wishes for aunt. She is doing well, and even came home last Friday! Initial thoughts were that she would have a three week hospital stay, but she is doing so well. 

Read Last Week:

  

When We Were Worthy is a book I received from Lake Union Publishing, and I absolutely devoured it within a day or two. Review this week. 

Rituals - Pussreboots commented to me last week that she could read Armstrong's books all the time and never get bored - and I have to agree. Armstrong has become a favorite of mine, especially with the Cainsville series and Rockton series. I loved Rituals. I am only sad that this is the last book in the series!

Reading This Week:

Ugh, I hate waiting for library holds! I am doing great without buying books for myself this year. It has been hard, but I'm doing it! I may cave this fall though - if there is ever a time to indulge, it is autumn!

  

I started this a while ago and didn't finish. This seems like the perfect week to pick it back up. 

Watching:

Midnight, Texas, American Gods, Land Girls on Netflix. Also, The Lowe Files with Rob Lowe. I am in love with this show. Plus, it doesn't hurt that Rob Lowe is still a very attractive man! Lol.


How about all of you? How's it been going?

    1. Yes! I totally agree! I remember crushing on him with my TeenBeat magazines and The Outsiders in the 80s, when I was just a preteen. Lol. Now I can be *ahem* the age I am now and still think it. Lol.

  2. I have to admire you for attempting to go all year without buying a book. Wow! That's something I don't think I could ever do.

    1. I didn't intend to do it! Then I realized I hadn't bought any, and thought, I can do this! It's been rough at times. I have bought books for my son, but not me.

  3. Glad your grandmother is doing well! And yes it's like nature gone wild lately- crazy stuff. I could read more Armstrong, and probably will, her Rockton books have made me a convert.

    I'm thinking of trying Midnight Tx.

    1. I love her new stuff so much. More than her earlier books, honestly. She has gotten better over the years IMO. I did enjoy her previous series' but not like Cainsville or Rockton. :)

      I am loving Midnight. It's a cool little world.

  4. Library holds never work out quite how I want them to! Fall is definitely going to be all about the wishlist. :)

  5. I actually love Rob Lowe's looks better now than when he was young. Back then, he was "too pretty." LOL.

    When We Were Worthy is on my list.

    Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

    1. I was a huge fangirl of his when I was younger, and it hasn't seemed to go away. And I totally agree, he is more attractive now!

      It was really good!

I love hearing from people, don't be shy! I would love to hear what you think! I always reply back, although it takes me a bit longer these days due to the little guy.
