Happy Sunday y’all! I think I found my reading mojo again 😀 I spent this week alternating among reading, listening and crocheting (my other love). I managed to read/listen to 5 books and am almost finished with my sixth. Can I just say I’ve missed my books? Of course it helped that the books I read this week were from some tried and true favorites of mine and one was a reread that I listened to, prepping for the final book’s in the series release.

So what am I crocheting? Why I’m glad you asked 😉 I’m working on two projects at the moment: a baby blanket for my niece who is trying to make an early appearance and a graphghan for myself. The baby blanket is a cute owl blanket that I’l share pis of when I’m finished and it’s in my sister-in-law’s hands. The graphghan is a pattern I’m following from Chaos & Chop Suey and a part of my first ever crochet-a-long. It’s based on Gilmore Girls and y’all I’m in love!

I may or may not have woken the neighbors on Friday night when I checked my Kindle and Laura Thalassa’s upcoming release Rhapsodic was waiting for me. Y’all I’m a huge fan of this author and so of course I dove right in. Let me just tell you I’m in love with Callie and Des <3

What are you reading this week?

This is going to be a busy, high anxiety week in America with the elections on Tuesday. I’ll be honest friends I’m SO glad that it’s almost over. This election has brought out the worst in people, including those I know and love. It’s sad and honestly no matter who wins it isn’t going to be pretty. I’m just glad it’s almost over….wait I said that already 😉

Reading wise I’m looking forward to the HoHoHo read-a-thon which starts later this week. Our weather has finally started to feel like fall again after temps in the 80s earlier this week so I’m actually getting in the Christmas spirit.

What are you looking forward to this week? Read any new favorites last week? Do you crochet or have another love like me? Share below

  1. Love that cover of Rhapsodic (is that what it’s called?). I’ve never heard of that series or author but I’m a total book cover snob so I must check it out! Oh and I got approved for The Dragon’s Price too! Loved the cover and loved the summary of it.

    New Sunday Post visitor. I’m with you on being ready for this election to be O-V-E-R! Enjoy your week and your new books!

    • That’s it! It’s the first in a new series by the author. It’s a sister series of sort to her series The Unearthly. It is fantastic so far! If you enjoy new adult urban fantasy I recommend it. She never disappoints 🙂
      I’m excited for The Dragon’s Price. I think it will be good. I’m like you and a cover snob as well 😉 Thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!

  2. I, too, am thrilled that this election is almost over. Its just been awful!
    I can’t wait to see your crochet creations. I have absolutely no talent in that area. I can’t even sew a button back on something.
    Have a great week!

  3. Being in the UK, I usually enjoy all the drama of your elections but I’ve never seen such a hate filled campaign in my life. Trouble is, if Clinton wins, Trump has already said he won’t respect the result and there could be trouble on the streets whoever wins. Might not be over after all… Glad you found your reading mojo again. It’s great when that happens!

    • That’s why I’m ready for this election to be over. Neither candidate is that great and both sides are fueled with hate. It’s awful!! I have a feeling this week will be ugly because neither candidate has enough electoral votes to win which means for the first time in a long time it will go to a house vote. Just thinking about it makes me cringe. So I read instead 😉

    • I don’t have much patience either but the graphghans are fun to make since there are so many variations and color change. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. I don’t have the patience for crochet lol but my mom does and she’s made me some blankets and I will always cherish them.

    I see “The Trouble with Christmas” there and I loved that book. Debbie Mason’s books are a must read for me. She has a new series and I’m loving it.

    Hope you have a good week! ~Aleen

    • I love Debbie Mason too. I started reading the Christmas Colorado series in the last two books so I thought I’d start st the beginning and read for the HohoHo readathon. Loved Mistletoe Cottage! Is that the one you’re referencing? It was such a sweet story.
      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  5. Oh my goodness….as a Canadian I’ve been watching your election with a growing sense of horror…so much anger, so much hatred. We spend so much time teaching our kids to be respectful and kind, and then grownups go and act like naughty children!

    • A majority of us feel the way you do but the media doesn’t cover that. I’m disgusted. It’s appalling how people have acted and I’m afraid it will only get worse after the election. I hope I’m wrong though.
