It's been an interesting year so far. I've lost both my Moms. My mother died in January after a long decline. Soon after, my Mother-in-Law went in for bypass surgery. While her heart healed, other issues zapped her strength and she died April 22.

I may have challenge update posts but I don't know when I'll be posting regularly or when I'll get to visit everyone who is working on the challenges I'm hosting.

Happy Monday!

A link from Dear Author, Cats Imitating Art, some of these are spot on, my favorites will show up on a Purrsday.

50 books! I have more than 50 books listed on my 150+ challenge, only 100 to go. ;)

Read-a-Thon, Read-a-Thon, Read-a-Thon, Read-a-Thon, ....yea, just a little happy to participate in Dewey's 24 hour Read-a-Thon.

Totally wiped from Saturday and Spring into Horror started Sunday!

Another family birthday party :D This one was much more casual with store bought cake and finger foods. I asked if we were coordinating the food and when the answer was no, I said great, maybe we'll all bring brownie bites! I made finger Jello...don't really care for the orange when it is all by itself.

Watching the news at the gym, forgot my music, the Feds are still searching for Etan. Need more info? check out my review of After Etan

Hope everyone has a great week planned.

Mailbox Monday is a place to share all the wonderful books that have come to live in your home– including paper books, e-books and audio books. Started by Marcia of The Printed Page, the mailbox is currently on tour. Check it out so you know where to go next month.

Your need to review list is nice!

Speak is gut wrenching but excellent. I hope you love your new books!

Blueberry Hill is on my wish list. I read the first in the series (listened actually) and really enjoyed it.

Kristin said...

I also list the books that I still need to do reviews for and I find it keeps me motivated to get them done. I always refer back to my It's Monday post during the week to see if I've made any progress on that list.

Have a great week!

I've stopped reading Christine Feehan and just realized it when I didn't recognize the title you had down. Maybe its a good time to go find one of her titles!

Happy Reading this week! It's Monday! What Are YOU Reading??
