Hey, everyone!

How has your week been? I’ve been working long hours since I’ve hurt my foot. I can’t quite walk the mile yet, so bussing is out. I keep having to rely on my husband to drive me at zero dark thirty in the morning. Then, wait for him to pick me up after work. And that man has become a workaholic as of late, so I end up staying late as well. I really hope I get my foot back to its full capacity soon, because I’m not very keen on working 12-hour days.

I went with my cousins on Friday night to watch Me Before You. I thought the movie was cast well. I especially loved Emilia Clarke’s portrayal of Louisa. She’s so spot on! She’s quirky, a natural comedian, with a penchant for clumsiness. I didn’t cry as much as I thought I would, but my cousins sure were like faucets! My God. They were sobbing. They thought I was heartless. Little do they know that the book fucked me up so bad. None of them has read the book yet but I didn’t bother recommending it because I don’t want to be the reason they would need therapy for life. Overall, it was a great movie, but as clichè as it sounds, the book was better.

My haul this week. Yes. Let’s talk about that. Usual hi-jinx happened this weekend. It doesn’t matter how stern a talking to I give myself. All it would take is a little invitation from my husband to go to the bookstore and I’m a puppy panting with my tongue hanging out. So that’s what happened, It also happens that they had a 4 for 3 sale, so I had to get 8. I hate myself.

The good news is I got my reading mojo back. I’m so happy, y’all! I’m at nine books as of this writing which is so much more than I could hope for. I’ve slowly chipped away at my GR reading challenge. I’m only behind 6 books now instead of 10. Phew. I read 4 books this week alone and I can’t wait to tell you all about it! I also have a blog tour this week for Burn, the fourth book in The Rephaim series by Paula Weston. I sure hope you’ll stop by and read my review.

Anyway, I hope you’ll all have a great reading week!
