Death and the Girl He Loves by Darynda Jones | Suite Française by Irène Némirovsky
It sure feels like I’ve been away for so long! How have you all been? Sorry for the short disappearing act there over the weekend. We were at the cabin for the first time in weeks. I lost my internet connection ever since Apple upgraded to Yosemite, so I have not been able to blog while were there. Long tedious story. Any who, if you’ve noticed that I didn’t have a Hoarders post this past weekend, it’s because I didn’t buy any books. I’m trying my best to stay away from bookstores nowadays as money is tight, and I’m trying my best to help my husband keep to our budget. He did promise that I can get a couple of books this week though. I know it’s not very feminist of me to have to depend on my husband for money. But that’s not true at all. It’s this thing called, “marriage”. Where you not only marry the person you love, but it also means the marriage of two incomes. So if you know what’s good for you, don’t get married! Haha. Kidding. 🙂
Anyway, that’s what’s going on with my personal life.
I have been reading quite a few books while I was fully immersed in reality. That’s at least the good news. I haven’t been distracted enough to stop reading. Goodness knows I don’t need a reading slump right now. Sigh. Sandra Brown once again occupied much of my time, but I’ve also read some wonderful books that I can’t wait to share with you all. As of this writing, I have 6 unread Sandra Brown left in my shelves. Which means, I have to prowl the thrift stores for more. Wish me luck!

Audible had a few books on sale for $4.95 each so of course I dare not resist downloading a couple. I’ve been hearing a lot about Sawyer Bennett, so I’m excited to listen to the first book of her Cold Fury series. I’m a huge fan of Jill Shalvis so I was so pumped to find this first book to her Wilders series. I’m going to listen to these two this week as well. Have you read these?
As for the books I chose this week, I’ve decided to finish Ms. Darynda Jones’ YA series. I enjoyed the first one, so I’m looking forward to reading the instalment. Suite Française was a recent book-to-film movie that I’ve not seen. I thought I’d do the next best thing and read the book.
That’s it for me! I’ve got some reviews this week including a couple of 5-star reads. A post about all the whys Sandra Brown’s books are so addictive. On Friday, please come back as I’ve recently taken pictures of my colour-coded shelves.
