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 past week has been mostly quiet. Work was work and the house was mainly mine as the nonhubs has been in Florida, my son Ohio and my daughter had work. I did receive my scan results back and was not cleared for activity. So I am to remain on restrictions until the neurosurgeon can see me. I am frustrated with the lack of activity and climbing walls (also internally nervous but trying to play it cool), but remaining optimistic that the surgeon will have better news. In the meantime, I am just reading more! But I would be lying if I did not admit how sick I am of lying in this house 😉
I did actually finish my newsletter on time and it did go out today. If you are interested in signing up, you can do so here or via the link on the sidebar. I currently include highlights and blog updates with a monthly blogger and tea featured. But I am working to expand the content. So please feel free to drop a line in the comments or via the contact form if you have a request or suggestions!
What I Am Reading This Week
By Julie Murphy
Ramona was only five years old when Hurricane Katrina changed her life forever.
Since then, it’s been Ramona and her family against the world. Standing over six feet tall with unmistakable blue hair, Ramona is sure of three things: she likes girls, she’s fiercely devoted to her family, and she knows she’s destined for something bigger than the trailer she calls home in Eulogy, Mississippi. But juggling multiple jobs, her flaky mom, and her well-meaning but ineffectual dad forces her to be the adult of the family. Now, with her sister, Hattie, pregnant, responsibility weighs more heavily than ever.
The return of her childhood friend Freddie brings a welcome distraction. Ramona’s friendship with the former competitive swimmer picks up exactly where it left off, and soon he’s talked her into joining him for laps at the pool. But as Ramona falls in love with swimming, her feelings for Freddie begin to shift too, which is the last thing she expected. With her growing affection for Freddie making her question her sexual identity, Ramona begins to wonder if perhaps she likes girls and guys or if this new attraction is just a fluke. Either way, Ramona will discover that, for her, life and love are more fluid than they seem.
- Monday was a discussion post that I learned a lot from: Books Including Trigger Warnings: Let’s Discuss This.
- On Thursday I shared my normal end of the month Reading Goals for July & Current Challenge Updates
This was another week of reviews as I continue to “try” to catch up. I am laughing as I type this because I think we all know that “trying to catch up” is my perpetual state of existence. But I am very excited about some upcoming reads and sharing them with you.
“I am reading six books at once, the only way of reading; since, as you will agree, one book is only a single unaccompanied note, and to get the full sound, one needs ten others at the same time.”
I am a multi-reader! Do you read more than one book at a time? I can often be caught with 3 or more books open and lying around. What’s on your nightstand this week?
