Hello Friends, Happy Sunday. Let’s chat about these past few days over a cup of coffee.
How did your week go? Did anything exciting happen? I was actually supposed to work this weekend, but got a call Tuesday telling me to not work because I was needed for something throughout next week. That was music to my ears! I have been pretty tired lately which I really think is caused by this new work schedule I’m on. So I really look forward to my down time. Sometimes it is really nice to have to not be anywhere.
I am in this limbo I find myself in quite often, where I am in the middle of a few different reads and they are all fantastic! So it is difficult to decide which one I want to read, when I am constantly in the mood for all of them. I am currently in the middle of two Debbie Macomber novels, Love Letters and Cottage by the Sea. I just finished the first story in Enchanted Crossings called Heart of the Hunter by Madeline Baker which I have quite a few thoughts about and on my Kindle, I started the arc of The Proposal by Jasmine Guillory. Next weekend is the 24in48 Hour Readathon and I’ve decided to participate but I want a clean slate, so finishing my current reads before next Saturday at midnight is ideal.
Surprisingly, I got a little bit of Podcast listening to in this week. I listened to the first episode of this season of You Must Remember This which is a podcast dedicated to classic Hollywood. To say that I’m obsessed with this Podcast is an understatement. Even if you aren’t a fan of classic Hollywood, I highly recommend it for the story telling alone. The lives old Hollywood actors, actresses, directors and writers were so interesting and the podcast host, Karina Longworth does such a fantastic job telling their stories. I also listened to a really fascinating episode of Smart Podcast Trashy Books which is hosted by Sarah Wendell from Smart Bitches. I listened to episode number 306 “Historical Gossip and Useful Women: An Interview with Darcie Wilde.” This episode is so good and jam packed with such interesting historical information, I have listened to it three times now just to make sure I’ve got it all right.
I went to the used book store a couple of nights ago on the prowl for gothic romances and surprisingly walked out with a few. I also bought a few gothic romances on ebay being that they are pretty hard to track down. I was honestly shocked to find them on ebay but I am so happy I did. I think they are going to make wonderful fall reads. I am so interested in older romances at the moment and I am interested to see how much the romance plays into some of these stories, because by the looks of some of their covers and the way the synopsis is written they can sound more like horror or suspense than romance.
So that is all that’s been going on with me. It has been a pretty chill week on my end. What about you? Anything new or exciting going on in your life? How has your reading been?
