**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
This morning, I woke up and started doing household tasks that I’ve put off all week. Yes, I had done some things during the week, and I always keep things picked up…but my most hated chores are scrubbing floors! So that’s what I’ve been doing today. Done, now! Just waiting for the bathroom rugs to dry. I am trying to stay cool, although even with the AC on, floor scrubbing definitely brought up my heat levels.
Reading was good, but not phenomenal. Three books read and reviewed, and since two of them were review ARCs, my Read the Books You Buy Challenge only went up one, now totaling 64 books.
I finished watching Shetland on Netflix...loved it! Now I have to find another series! I have added some to my queue: Ozark, Friends from College, and Father Brown. Has anyone seen them? I’ve enjoyed catching up on my TV shows, like Broadchurch and The Fosters. A new show I’m watching: The Bold Type.
So…that’s where some of my reading time went. And I finally went out to shop a little and had a late lunch one day. The usual food photo: soup and a margarita (see at the bottom of this post).
Here’s what morning in my office looks like:
And now, let’s take a look back….
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
INCOMING BOOKS: (Titles/Covers Linked to Amazon)
Empty mailbox! But I did purchase one newly released e-book.
The Lying Game (e-book), by Ruth Ware
Atmospheric, twisty, and with just the right amount of chill that will keep you wrong-footed—which has now become Ruth Ware’s signature style—The Lying Game is sure to be her next big bestseller. Another unputdownable thriller from the Agatha Christie of our time.
Still Reading: Emma in the Night (e-book), by Wendy Walker (NG-8-8)
Because my next NetGalley review books won’t be released until late August and September, I think I’ll try some of my purchased TBR books, like this one:
Sunday Morning Coming Down, (A Frieda Klein Novel), by Nicci French
The Bookshop on the Corner (e-book), by Jenny Colgan
That was my week! What did yours look like? (Below), my Thursday late afternoon repast: It is very familiar, isn’t it? But what can I say…I love that soup and that margarita.
