WHITE FLAG

Hi there! Let me tell you what I’ve learned about myself this week. I’ve learned that I’m no longer going to stress out about jobs and careers. I’m going to be a stay-at-home mom who will be constantly looking for a job until I find the right one. I will not settle. I know what I’m worth and I know what I can do. I am not going to accept something if I know I’m not going to be happy doing it. So yes. I am, once again, unemployed. This is so funny, I want to cry. But. Like I said, I’ve accepted the fact that putting pressure on myself creates unnecessary stress that I can live without.  Stress that affects my family life, my love of reading, and blogging.

BOOK CRATE WPG (aka silver lining)

I am in talks with a friend of mine who wants to do an online business. She’s the crafty one, and I’ll be the business person. I’ll talk more about this once we’ve got everything set up. But basically, it’s a store that will cater to us, book nerds. We’re shooting to go live by December 1st, so I at least have that to look forward to.

REREADING MY ENNUI AWAY

I’m sad to say that I’ve only read one new book this week and have mostly been rereading a whole bunch of Julianna Stone’s and Kate Perry’s books. I’ve always said that the best way to kick your reading blues away is to read something fun, easy and romantic. These two authors are pretty much my go-to when it comes to contemporary romance. So aside from figuring out that I, myself am the cause of my own hell, I reread those books to put some spark in my reading. And it worked!

MUCH LOVE. MUCH LOVE.

I would like to thank a couple of publishers for sending me some review copies. Simon & Schuster Canada for the ARC of Dangerous Lies. Penguin Random House Canada for the copies of The Masked Truth by Kelley Armstrong, Midnight Sun by Jo Nesbö, Cracked by Barbra Leslie and The Gap of Time by Jeannette Winterson.

HAVE A GREAT WEEKEND, EVERYONE and our thoughts and prayers to the people of France. May God be with you through these trying times.
