Hey everyone! It’s time for another weekly recap post of all things happening on and off the blog. This week I’ll be linking to the Sunday Post, which is hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer and to Stacking the Shelves, which is hosted by Tynga’s Reviews.
I hope everyone who was celebrating had a happy and safe 4th of July holiday. My husband and I let our son dictate the festivities and ended up hosting the neighborhood kids in his age group for smores and a few fireworks. It was great fun and the kids even helped with clean up, so that part was even better!
This weekend my husband and I are celebrating our 18th wedding anniverary, which doesn’t even seem possible. I’ve almost reached that point in life where I’ve been with him for more years than I’ve been without him.
It was a pretty busy week for the blog too. I managed to get those writing days I was hoping for and am now all caught up on my book reviews (well, for the moment anyway!). Right now I’m in the process of writing a discussion post for later this week and am starting to read some of the books on my TBR for the summer reading challenge I’m participating in. Up first is A Court of Wings and Ruin, followed by Strange the Dreamer.
I also had my first DNF in a while this week. I just couldn’t connect with the characters in Conversations with Friends by Sally Rooney. I found them abrasive and annoying so I ended up ditching that book. I’ve had a run of great reads though, so I guess I was due for a DNF. Hopefully that won’t be the start of a run of bad books. Fingers crossed!
Well, that’s pretty much it for me. Have a great week, everyone!
