Man have I had a busy week! Work (about which I will have exciting news next week), workouts, and other commitments have taken up a lot of time that might have otherwise been spent reading and blogging. Thus I committed this weekend to those pursuits with the goal of reading four books. So far I have only finished one so I expect I will only finish two more today. I also need to work on commenting, my perpetual quest.
Also how are we almost done with September when each day seems to be taking forever? I'm thrilled because I won a dress and two books (will talk about them more when they arrive.)
First up my softball team got our first win this week...mostly because
the other team forfeited! I cannot tell you how often just showing up
has paid off for me and this is another example I see in my life.
Instead we had a nice batting practice and I even scooped up some ground
balls from second base.
I feel like such a bad fan for forgetting that Manchester United was playing their first Champions match of the year. It was a very Rooney-centric victory so I didn't mind too much. Then I forgot my Eagles were on Thursday Night football but since they lost, it was probably for the best for my nerves. Furthermore my ability to watch football has been seriously eroded due to soccer's commercial-free pace. I was watching football last Sunday when it came back from commercials for about 30 seconds with no plays only to then return to commercials! I definitely prefer watching soccer now.
In other excitement, my dad is traveling to Germany on a business trip and is hoping to pick up a German World Cup jersey for me, which would be so cool! While my number one team is the US, if they are knocked out early (probable), I will turn my fandom toward Germany.
What Goes Around by Courtney Summers-won from I Want to Read That-thank you!
Will in Scarlet by Matthew Cody
Bracelet-instead of getting two books from Amazon Vine, I only got the above and a bracelet. This should make writing my reviews a bit less time-consuming.
Week to Come:
Asylum by Madeleine Roux-standalone mysterious thriller with photos
Starry Nights by Daisy Whitney-fantastical contemporary featuring the art world
Rogue by Gina Damico-conclusion to the Croak trilogy
Engines of the Broken World by Jason Vanhee-YA horror
Where the Stars Still Shine by Trish Doller-intense sounding contemporary
When the Marquess Met His Match by Laura Lee Guhrke-adult historical romance
Hope your reading is going well-have a lovely week!
