Love, Lies, and Spies by Cindy Anstey | Half A Lifelong Romance by Eileen Chang | Tell Me Three Things by Julie Buxbaum | When We Collided by Emery Lord | The Haters by Jesse Andrews | The Last Boy and Girl in the World by Siobhan Vivian | The Raven King by Maggie Stiefvater | A Gathering of Shadows by V. E. Schwab
As you can tell from the books I’ve hoarded this week, my earlier plan to only buy what I want to read was thrown out of the window. In my defense, three of these books were bought by my husband from his work trip to Washington (When We Collided, A Gathering of Shadows, Half A Lifelong Romance). I went to the bookstore with my kids on Saturday with every intention of picking up one book and one book only (Tell Me Three Things), but best-laid plans and all that. Though I shouldn’t feel so guilty about going considering The Raven King was put out early. Still. I ended up with more books that I’d intended.
Playing Catch Up
I am, once again, playing catch up with you all. Now that my husband is home, I think I’ll be able to do more blogging stuff when I get home from work. I’ve given myself some talking to about Netflix and Gilmore Girls. I promised to keep my watching to a minimum of two episodes a night. I know it’s tough to keep to that promise, but I will try.
Work is going well. I’m just so happy fo finally have a structure again. Being off work and not knowing what to do with my time was tough. It’s funny how I kept wishing about being a stay-at-home mom before I lost my job. And when I was finally at home, I found out that I would rather be slaving away at a desk for 8 hours a day.
