How’s everyone’s summer been? Things here are rocking and rolling – while it hasn’t been a terribly exciting summer, we’ve stayed consistently busy. House updates (we finally more or less finished the bathroom), Beersploring trips, boating, lots of travel agenting, and not a lot of reading. I hit a major reading slump in the spring, hence the quiet blog.
I’m happy to say that slump has passed, and I’m now considering how difficult it would be to read the 4 books a week I’d need to still meet my Goodreads Challenge goal.
I’m also putting a little more energy back into the blog, so while we won’t be getting back to weekly posts for while, it shouldn’t be another two months before you hear from me again! Annnnnd, I finally got the link to travel specials up. I have no idea how that site works, so if you play around with it, please come back and let me know.
As always, thanks for sticking with me.
I’m Currently Reading
I Just Finished Reading
August’s Book Club book. I’m not sure why it’s a bestseller unless people just really like cats, but it was an easy enough read.
Puppies. Romance novels. Free. Sit….Stay….Beg is the reason I got over my reading slump. I liked it better than New Leash on Life, but they’re both definitely fun reads. I fully intend to read the rest of the series.
I love this series. Pawprints and Predicaments is number 3, and just as much fun as the first two (Death by Chocolate Lab and Dial Meow for Murder). This one features a Saint Bernard, and more Artie.
2.5 stars for this one, really. I expected lots of action – which I didn’t get. I haven’t yet read Hartman’s Seraphina, but it’s set in the same world. Tess of the Road is too long and plodding in my opinion, but keep in mind I’m coming off a slump so it could just be me.
My most recent listen. I’m torn on An American Marriage. I wanted to love it, but there’s absolutely no character growth. It’s a shame, too, because there are so many opportunities for it within the story.
I’m Traveling To
Back to Negril! We had such a great time in April that we’re going back next month. More details on that soon, as well as a recap of our first trip. Here’s a hint though – we loved the snorkeling.
