It's Monday.....and I (and a few million other American's) get the day off!

It's Monday!  So happy to have an extra day off.  I had a procedure done on Friday that I wasn't expecting, so my body is rebelling and making me pay a little, but luckily I get to relax and take it easy for a few days. 
the way my body treats me when it's upset

 Now it's just a matter of waiting for some results....which, I'm assured will mostly likely be fine.

It's time.  Time for book news.  It's Monday, What Are You Reading is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.  I'm pretty sure we all know what it's about by now....
what we're reading, what we've read, and sometimes our planned, or hopeful reads. 

Oh - it's been a verrrrrra slow reading month....
and a verrrrrrra slow reading week, also.  After picking up one book, and then another, and yet another...I finally grabbed the one book I've been reading here and there - a page or two, once in a while.

I've had this book for a few years; won it from a book contest at least five years ago.
It's sometimes sad, sometimes funny, and sometimes frustrating book about a young girl - covers at least 8 years of her life.  From the time she's a young girl to the time she's 18.  And by the time she's 18, she's been married a few years and has lost and gained family and friends.  It's quite a book, and I believe there's a sequel or two....and it's been made into a movie.  Haven't seen the movie yet, but I would like to. 

That was it.  I finished one book last week, and one book the week before...

Currently reading?

#2 of the series
#1 of the series
yes, a little.  Haven't quite settled on one book yet.  I picked out of my stack near the bed (I have a few different areas for my TBR stacks) the sequel Moonshifted.  I've read exactly two pages out of it.  Sometimes if a book doesn't quite grab me in that first couple of pages, then I go wandering off to another book.  Moonshifted is the sequel to Nightshifted by Cassie Alexander - R.N./writer of urban fantasy.  

Another book I've recently picked up, and wouldn't mind
finishing if I could remember where I set it is Hammered, part of the Iron Druid series by Kevin fact, I just might tiptoe into the living and find it.  That's the last place I remember seeing it, and it's about 2:30 a.m. right now, so I need to be a little considerate, i.e. quiet.  

Then again - Kill Bill Vol II is on right now, and watching extra bloody Tarantino over the top fight scenes IS kind of interesting.  In a very bloody, gross way.  I never have been able to catch either Vol I or II from the very beginning, so I'm not quite sure what's going on other than a white girl is wreaking havoc on many other women.

Happy Labor Day to all - and hope there's lots of food, family, and/or friends.  Whichever you feel the need for.  I'm looking forward to kicking back, and maybe reading.  Being lazy is my favorite thing to do - like a hobby.  :)

Good Night, All and Happy Reading


  1. I was laughing about trying to figure out where you put the book. I usually leave my books in one of a few places, but then my darling husband gets to tidying and I can't find a thing!
    I hope you enjoy your day off and use it to rest up and get lots of reading done!

    1. Doesn't it seem to you that the things that need to get put away are left lying around, and the things you want to be around (easy access) are the things that get "put away" or thrown away? LOL Sometimes the tidying up process makes no sense to me....I'll hear the dishes being moved around and lots of noise from water and sink stuff....then later I see most of the dishes and ALL of the silverware still in the sink, waiting to be washed. What was the point? I wonder....

      Or lots of junk mail is left on the table or coffee table and that one important piece of paper gets thrown away...and no one remembers seeing it. You're given this blank "whut?" AHHHH..... marriage. It's not for the feint hearted. :)
