Another weekend … another update!
In my life:
Oh, headache of all headaches. This week was a BUSY week. Work, appointments, family, funeral. It was nice to have some time to sit back and read, but I really relied on scheduled reading more than anything this week.
Can I just say I’m happy that fall is here? Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to be cooling down AT ALL but pumpkin lattes are back, so that’s good. Actually, since becoming preggo, I haven’t been having caffeine (well, not deliberately), so lattes are out, but pumpkin steamed milks are AWESOME. I wish Starbucks would sell that stuff so I could make my own at home. But they don’t. And that makes me sad.
On Saturday, we attended the humane society’s event People & Pooches Paddle … it was raining out and cold, but everyone still had a lot of fun! The husband came out with a few war wounds (the joy of swimming with dogs) and I stayed out on the sidelines taking pictures — since pregnant woman + 40 dogs in the pool = danger waiting to happen.
In reading (& blogging):
This week I read:
1. Hounded (The Iron Druid Chronicles, #1) by Kevin Hearne (I think I said I finished this last week … oops)
2. The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer (Mara Dyer, #1) by Michelle Hodkin (reread)
3. A Lady By Midnight (Spindle Cove, #3) by Tessa Dare (LOVED this one!)
4. Faerie Wars (The Faerie Wars Chronicles, #1) by Herbie Brennan (audiobook)
5. Imaginary Girls by Nova Ren Suma
6. Death Sentence (Escape from Furnace, #3) by Alexander Gordon Smith
Partway through the week, I discovered the beauty in speeding up audiobooks. Though my Music app on my iPod only does 2x the speed, not 1.5x, it was all good. Not tooooo fast, and it took a bit more concentration since the narrator was British, but it’s nice to finish an 11 hour audiobook in less time (well, would’ve been a LOT less had I figured this out more than 2/3 of the way through).
Now, onto the books! (Click on the covers to be taken to Goodreads)
*listens to the crickets*
I really didn’t get much at ALL this week! I did win a book from Molli over at Once Upon a Prologue:
AND I won a giftcard for $10 from Amazon.ca from Marie from the Canadian Reading Challenge back in July!
Big thanks to Molli and Marie! 🙂
How was your week? Have you read anything good lately?
