Sunday Post--June 2

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer. This is where I take a look at my last week and look ahead to what I might be doing next week.

My Sunday Post is a Monday Post this! I was busier than expected and without internet for quite a bit of last week.

Last Week

Around the House
I was in Wisconsin and Iowa last week. My husband joined my daughter and I in Des Moines on Friday to help our daughter move into her new place. She found a great place to rent and it sounds like she's working for a great company. I had a great time with her over the last week and a half.

My husband and I flew back to Maryland Sunday afternoon and our flights were delayed--first for mechanical problems and then for thunderstorms in Baltimore. We should have been home a little after 8 p.m. Instead we finally got home around 1:30 a.m. because of the weather, backed up planes, baggage delays and other problems. I don't want to travel again for! I've had too many late nights and early mornings!

I also realized how much I enjoy spending time reading blogs, writing blog posts and reading. I didn't have much time or opportunity to do those things! Ah...but the time with my daughter made up for the lost time on the internet or with a book!

Review: Suddenly Royal by Nichole Chase 

Books read
Cinder by Marissa Meyer

The Viscount Who Loved Me by Julia Quinn--I read half of this book out loud while my daughter drove all the places we went. We've done this before on some of our drives. We had both read this book before and when we stopped our driving I decided not to continue reading on my own!

Next Week

Around the house
I expect to need a day or two to rest up and get back into my routine! My husband leaves on a business trip on June 3 so he's going to be very busy as well. I'm going to try to catch up with my internet class (about WordPress blogs and websites), this blog and also the many cards I need to make and send to friends and family this month for graduations, birthdays, anniversaries, thank yous, babies....

June Books--June 4

And I hope to have at least two reviews ready to post


  1. One Upon A Tower looks awesome and yeah I hate traveling, isn't it funny how when we are away, we miss our books, blog and the wonderful blogging community!

    1. I really like Eloisa James books so I'm looking forward to this one. After our trip home on Sunday flying is one of my least favorite!

  2. Faefever, such an awesome series.

    That sucks about your travel travails but it's good you're safely home now. :)

    1. I'm enjoying this series so much. I don't know why it took me so long to start the series.

  3. Ohhh, hope you enjoy The Chocolate Rose! I just reviewed it last Friday. Did you read any books from her yet?

    1. No, I haven't read any of her books...even though I've bought several of them. lol
