This first full week of October in East Tennessee was very, very wet! In fact, it rained everyday. We didn’t have a single day without it, which for this Mama meant that I had one very bored, very rambunctious three year old boy. To keep him occupied, I’ve taught him some new songs, we’ve watched some new halloween cartoons, we’ve read A LOT, and of course the whole potty training bit. Then one day, one desperate day on my part, we played in the rain when it wasn’t pouring buckets and got all muddy on the playground. It was worth it 😀
Also this week, I took a bit of a break from my review TBR pile and dug into my own pile. I needed a bit of a break, and I must say it has recharged me. I read only books I wanted to read which consisted of a re-read of Guards of the Shadowland series by Sarah Fine and the reading of the conclusion which I’m still torn up about by the way! I’m now ready to tackle those review TBRs!

This Week’s Book Fix
I was told by my husband it was time to slow down on my books. However he tells me this while taking me through a bookstore!!!! That’s like taking a toddler into a toy store and telling him he can’t have any of the toys! But I digress. This week’s book haul is not as large as my previous (probably best for my own sanity 😉 ) and I only purchased two books, the rest were freebies.
As always, the links connect to the book’s Goodreads page. Happy Reading 😀

Got a Question for You
I posted the following question last week and had great results and suggestions. So I wanted to post it again! Thank you to everyone for their input last week. You really made my day 🙂
After much pressure from my husband and my mom, I’ve decided to think (keyword here) about publishing a book I wrote five years ago. But I have a few questions and I’d love all your opinions on them. Readers when you are looking to buy a book, what attracts you? The cover…the synopsis…and why? Authors best route to publish…indie or with a publisher?
Thank you in advance for your answers. I promise to read and take all of them to heart!
