Hosted by Sheila of Book Journey - a weekly meme where we get to show what we've read, and what we hope to read.
My week was a very slow week for reading - though I felt busy, I accomplished very little that was fun
Sent e-mail to the winner of Stormwalker but still haven't heard back (Beverly! Come on, Girl! you'll enjoy this book but I need the address! )
I poisoned myself (bad, bad, bad)
I over-dusted/worked my lungs (bad - very bad)
I played a lot with grandchildren (fun, always fun)
I attempted to watch tv (anyone else have issues with Comcast's horrible viewing service? I haven't been able to watch a complete show all summer - we are looking for alternatives for cable)
I read one and a half books (good thing, wish I read more though)
wrote NO reviews (one is coming up though)
made some horrible tasting Caramel (so sad)
Stacia Kane! Can I just say - I love this series. A review is coming up - but in the meantime I love that we have here a main character that is right in the midst of an addiction, is fully aware of what she's doing, is still making it to work (drugs are expensive), and things don't go well for her, but she keeps picking herself up and muddling through because even though she's bringing a lot of her problems on herself - it's still her life and she's living it - damnit!
This is the half of the one and a half books I've read this past week. I'm more than halfway through and having fun with this - even though it's bringing back some strong memories of my own hypercritical latina mom - having a latina mom, there's just no comparison...Good book and the bonus for me (since my critical mom did NOT teach us spanish) is the glossary of phrases at the back. I was pleasantly surprised at how many of the phrases I knew. :)
I have plans to read these two books next - Black Magic Sanctions is one of my birthday books, or I would have had to wait for the paperback to come out. I only buy hardbacks from a few authors. The Pack is a YA book by L.M. Preston that I'm looking forward to reading and reviewing - these kids live on MARS. MARS!
I put off Little Beauties for now, because it seemed a little down, and I need stuff that's not so sad. I plan to read it though - soon.
Small week for me - but that's how it is for me.
