Readathon Updates ~ 9/17/21

Happy Friday! I hope you have all had a great week. I am loving the start of the fall weather here in Louisiana. Some of the leaves are beginning to change and our days are getting shorter. And we got some much needed rain today. Plus pumpkin everything! I’m eating a pumpkin donut as I type this.

I have been loving immersing myself in seasonal reads. I’ve been reading tons of horror and thrillers and that’s so unusual for me, but I’m so very much enjoying it. I’m still reading plenty of romance, too, though. And I’m also currently reading a Christmas book (and just finished another one). So, I have plenty of light to counter the dark. Plus, it’s not all dark, a lot of fall reads are just cozy.

WWW Wednesday 9/8/21

Welcome to WWW Wednesday! This meme is hosted by Taking on a World of Words.

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone’s having a great week! Sorry, I still don’t have bookshelf pics. I worked for hours yesterday, and I’m completely sore from all of the bending, squatting, and ladder climbing with the books. But, I’d say that I’ve only gotten about a quarter of the shelves to my liking so far. This morning I’m taking a rest from it, and I’ll get back to it this afternoon.

#IMWAYR ~ 9/6/21

Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend! And, I hope you’re not like this little boy with his Mondays, but rather that you’re enjoying your day.

I’m a bit happy myself because my brother just sent me pics of my bookshelves all completed. He’ll be installing them tomorrow, and then I can finally get my new library put together. I know I had hoped to have my daughter fully in her new room, and the library completed before summer was over, and well, I technically accomplished that. I had really been meaning before school starts, but hey, with all of the complications we dealt with this summer, I’m just happy that we’re all alive and well, and it’s the icing on the cake that I’m finally getting my new shelves.

Some Quick Reviews & Updates

Happy Thursday! I’m sure this isn’t surprising, but I just haven’t felt like putting review posts together lately. But, I’ve been trying to at least leave brief thoughts on Goodreads after I finish each book. I thought I’d share a few recent ones today. And if you don’t already have me as a friend on Goodreads, you can find me HERE.

Now for a few quick thoughts on some recent reads (I linked to Goodreads so you can check out the blurbs if you aren’t familiar with the book) ~

August Wrap-Up

Holy WoW. Is it really September already? August seems like a blur of back to school stuff for us. Maybe September will be a little calmer, a little slower. I am definitely hoping it’s going to be bringing me some cooler temps. We were on track to get some of those cooler temps this week, but then the hurricane came through bringing hot temps with it. We were previously going to have highs between 89 and 92. Now today’s high is 99.
