Just a heads up that I'm going dark for several weeks. I may still update posts/challenges but there will be no new content, not even Thursdays.

My Mom died and I'm taking each day as it comes, plus helping my Dad go through her stuff.

Jan 16 update: Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, is in the hospital for bypass surgery

Feb 19 update: MIL is home now :-D and slowly getting better. I'm still helping my Dad with Mom's stuff but since my brother is out of town, I'm spending 4 nights at his house every week for a month. It's MUCH closer to Dad's and they do meals together and hang out.

Mar 8 update: I'm having a blast with my Dad. MIL has gone back to the hospital

Mar 29 update: MIL is home but not doing well.

Apr 9 update: SIL is nurse and has taken time off work to care for MIL who is basically receiving hospice care at home.

I'll see you in May . . . April 23 update: My Mother-in-law, who I call Mom, died yesterday.

I'm so excited but a little scared!

I started blogging so I'd have some place to keep track of reading challenges. Then someone asked if I'd like to review a book for them. WOW! People send me free books and all I have to do it read and review it. How cool is that? I have a stack of them but I'm kicking it up a notch with specific dates.
AND there are thirteen books total to read and review this summer! So yeah, I'm a lot excited to be reading new-to-me authors and a little scared that I'm going to fall behind or not be able to get into a book.

Sooooo, along with having extended family over for a party in May, helping plan a bigger extended family (other side) party in July, and being at the beach for a week in August, keeping up with my review books, reading challenges, and reading-just-because books, . . . .

I'll be reading the following books and posting a review on the date specified.

21st - The One and Only by Emily Giffin
23rd - Love and Other Foreign Words by Erin McCahan
28th - Cure for the Common Breakup by Beth Kendrick

20th - The Witch of Belladonna Bay by Suzanne Palmieri
25th - The Revealed by Jessica Hickam
27th - The Walk In Closet by Abdi Nazemian

9th - Elly in Love by Colleen Oakes
16th - After I Do by Taylor Jenkins Reid
25th - Serenade by Emily Kiebel
30th - Queen of Hearts Vol. 2 by Colleen Oakes

15th - Gravel on the Side of the Road by Kris Raddish
20th - The Curse of Van Gogh by Paul Hoppe
22nd - Wild Within by Melissa Hart


I'm looking forward to the challenge and am crossing my fingers that everything gets shipped/emailed soon so I can get started.
