When I heard that NBC was going to start airing British Premier League Football, I was nervous that they would try to stuff in commercial breaks, which would have totally spoiled the viewing experience. Happily yesterday's Manchester United fixture was not interrupted and it had a delightful outcome in my opinion with Man U handily winning.

I've seen two bookish surveys around lately and I am working on posts for both of them. Then I've been reflecting on my beloved BSC books and how that impacted my reading life as I embark on a BSC reread experience. Another fun thing is a readalong with Jen Ryland/YA Romantics of The Scarlet Pimpernel-we may still be hammering out some details :) but I'm excited to read a classic with such a good friend. Lastly I have my Taylor Swift/Ed Sheeran concert experience post. Not all of these posts are not going up this week but be prepared for a bit more content than usual on the blog.
I had a super fun day with my friends yesterday. We did a boot camp that had bonus content with the theme of "You are who you hang out with." I'm so glad that I hang out with positive people who push, encourage, and inspire me as we're working toward our goals. For me that includes the people I physically hang out with as well as all you wonderful bookish people with your exciting content and how you're maybe working on a novel of your own or reaching out to support others through social media. You're wonderful! I don't know how much I'll be around though as this week is kicking off a season of busy-ness for me with orchestra and softball beginning again...consequently my reading/blogging has already fallen off a bit as I prepare and will continue to take some hits. Eventually I will have commitments Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday nights in addition to planning social outings with friends. This means way less reading but I will definitely still be around. I managed it last year!
Week to Come:
Tumble and Fall by Alexandra Coutts-ever since I saw this gorgeous cover, I've been coveting this book so I'm pleased to be presenting an early review of it.
The Social Code by Sadie Hayes
Yellowcake by Margo Lanagan-I've heard mixed things about these short stories
This Song Will Save Your Life by Leila Sales-I've heard so much good buzz
The Winter Prince by Elizabeth Wein-as the author of my beloved Code Name Verity, I have high expectations of this backlist title
The Truth About You and Me by Amanda Grace
What have you all been up to? How do you balance working full-time and other commitments with blogging if that's your situation?
