Week in READview:
Real life & Blogging:
Last weekend on Sunday we celebrated the Kittens 3rd birthday. I can’t believe Auggie and Calliope are three already. Furbabies grow up just as quickly as human kids! They are still super cute and adorable.
Speaking of cute and adorable. Poppy Von Schweetz, the baby velociraptor is getting spayed and her hernia fixed on Monday. I’m a nervous wreck but we are hoping that it calms her down a touch but not too much since she is so much fun and keeps the other two on their toes.
Last week work was so slow. It’s making me so nervous. I am hoping we pick up at work or Limabean Designs picks up because I don’t know what we are going to do. So with that said is anyone is interested…”Are you a blogger and need a new feature, meme or challenge you want to start but don’t feel like making a logo? Well…Let me do it for you! For $5 I will make you the logo you need. Email me today to get started Limabean74@gmail.com!”
I posted something new this week about Podcasts. I’m obsessed with them and since Jan have listened to so many it’s unreal. I plan to review and share all of the podcasts I have listened and still am listening too. I am also working on something for October that I am hoping I can get organized for the first week of September so if anyone wants to join they will have time to get posts ready for October. The last 3 months of the year are always my favorite and I have tons of ideas that I am hoping I can actually do.
Miracle Creek Christmas is such a great book, I am loving how hallmark it feels and it’s making me long for the holidays. I have a feeling I am going to be super sad when I am done reading that. My next read is a big boy, and my Series in a Month challenge series. All of the books are big and I hope to read at least two of them but if I read all three before the end of September I am throwing a party with drinks and confetti because I would be so impressed with myself. lol
Ghostland turned out to be a pretty good read but I had issues. I did a review for it yesterday if you want to check it out.
What I grabbed:
Book box book is gorgeous and I have been thinking of cancelling but the last 4 or 5 books that I got have been stunning and I love the colored edges and alternate cover. Next months book box book is going to be amazing, I already know what it is and can’t wait to get it! 🙂
I have The Poppy Wars already in ebook and I saw book two was on Sale so I grabbed it. Might turn into a series in a month read if I grab the last one.
Of course, I have my proper romance books and these two come out next year. I love Shadow Mountain Publishings stories and can’t wait to read these. They are both set at sea and on a ship. I love a good ship story.
