Once again I'm linking up with Kimba over at the Caffeinated Book Reviewer for The Sunday Post where we talk about what's happening on and off the blog.
What I Got:
This week I ended up a few more books than I planned on!
The Blood of an Englishman by M.C. Beaton - I've enjoyed the handful of Agatha Raisin books I've read but it's been awhile so I thought I'd give the newest in the series a try.
Hideaway Cove by Anna Sullivan - I've seen good reviews for this book and thought I'd try it as I've been in a contemporary mood lately.
It's in His Kiss by Jill Shalvis - I love Shalvis's Lucky Harbor series
He's So Fine by Jill Shalvis - so I couldn't resist requesting this one
One in a Million by Jill Shalvis - or this one for that matter though it says this is going to be the last one. I'm glad that she's not going to write the series to death like happens so often but now I have to find a replacement!
Rival's Challenge by Abby Green - I didn't care for the first book in the series but I love the grand hotel in London so much that I decided to give this another try. It's by a different author so I'm hopeful.
Scene of the Climb by Kate Dyer-Seely - this was sent by the author for review consideration. It's a cozy featuring a woman who writes for an adventure magazine who may have exaggerated her athletic abilities. I'm pretty excited about it as it looks like a fun mystery with a dash of humor.
Off the Blog:
We are officially in back to school mode. Emma and Paul started Tuesday, the Tornado starts Monday and Eleanor heads back to university next weekend. They've changed the school time for Emma and Paul's school to deal with a busing issue we have here and have changed some of the traffic routes. Apparently it's total chaos but I don't have to deal with it at all because Emma is driving to school. I'm so happy about it I can't even begin to describe it! I love this time of year because it's like New Years day part 2. I reevaluate all my systems and get back on track with everything. I feel all organized and on top of things until towards the end of November when all the holiday madness hits and things spin out of control again.
My tomatoes have slowed down a bit and I finally learned how to tell the difference between an Armenian cucumber and a regular cucumber so I'm picking everything at their correct size. I still have zucchini coming out my ears and am running of things to do with it that don't involve baking with it because I've yet to become a fan of zucchini bread. I'm thinking I'm going to try fritters next.
I'm finally well again! I have a twinge of cough and some allergy issues but the cold is finally gone! It's so great to not feel like death warmed over anymore!
