The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimberly @ Caffeinated Book Reviewer that I am linking my Sunday Sum-Ups with. Stop by and say hello!
This was a successful week! I returned from a small blogging break that was briefer than anticipated 🙂 Work remains challenging but good things happened. No back surgery! I ruptured some disks and just need to heal. Time is on my side. The neurosurgeon does think he has me figured out and will be following up with my regular neurologist to push them to confirm a diagnosis (he is not impressed with their lack of aggressiveness), but I will share this if/when I know for certain. It is something I knew was a possibility with my symptoms and the brain lesion. So I am okay and have actually accepted it. I just need to be who I am with the body I have. The important thing is proper treatment so that I am making the best of each day.
I did acquire a new (and very needed laptop). So I have been in the process of transferring over all my accounts. Amazing how fast you remember that you have forgotten your passwords.. Of course, I blame all of my frustrations on the new computer. But it is nice to be able to see on the larger screen. I am hoping it will help quite a bit.
My daughter made it back from Ohio and we have a nice trip to Vegas planned next month with my non-inlaws when our son returns. So for now, I am just resting and taking it day by day. It is quite possible I will be slowly unhauling my bookshelves by the time this posts.
What I Am Reading This Week
The Queens of Innis Lear
By Tessa Gratton
A kingdom at risk, a crown divided, a family drenched in blood.
The erratic decisions of a prophecy-obsessed king have drained Innis Lear of its wild magic, leaving behind a trail of barren crops and despondent subjects. Enemy nations circle the once-bountiful isle, sensing its growing vulnerability, hungry to control the ideal port for all trade routes.
The king’s three daughters—battle-hungry Gaela, master manipulator Reagan, and restrained, starblessed Elia—know the realm’s only chance of resurrection is to crown a new sovereign, proving a strong hand can resurrect magic and defend itself. But their father will not choose an heir until the longest night of the year, when prophecies align and a poison ritual can be enacted.
Refusing to leave their future in the hands of blind faith, the daughters of Innis Lear prepare for war—but regardless of who wins the crown, the shores of Innis will weep the blood of a house divided.
- On Monday I returned and kept it light by sharing Blogging Life: 6 More Things I Have Learned Since I Started Blogging.
- I was thrilled to have the pleasure of interviewing Craig Dilouie on Tuesday after having just reviewed his book One of Us.
- Saturday I decided to join in with Kaleena at Reader Voracious and share my first ever Sentranced Saturday post.
- Jackie at Death by Tsundoku was drawn as my next You Choose, I Read selector and chose Born A Crime by Trevor Noah. I am very excited to start this book soon!
I am really looking forward to this next week and accomplishing a few things and seeing a few friends ❤
