Good morning! Today’s post will link up to The Sunday Salon, The Sunday Post and Stacking the Shelves, for weekly updates.
**Mailbox Monday is hosted at the home site: Mailbox Monday.
And let’s join Kathryn, our leader in It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?, at Book Date.
Here I am at 4:13 a.m…. and SLEEPLESS ON SATURDAY. Yes, I had to take a jab at that “Sleepless in Seattle” movie title, one of my favorite Tom Hanks/Meg Ryan flicks. Why am I wide awake when I should still be curled up in my bed? I am not quite sure, but I suspect that my thoughts are still caught up in recent political events that are disturbing to me…and upcoming primary elections that might (hopefully) right some of the wrongs. I have a growing file here on my desk with primary election information and my official ballot that recently arrived in my mailbox. So...instead of tossing and turning, I am writing this post about my week and the great books I enjoyed.
I actually read three books again this week, all of which were really awesome. My mailbox was overflowing with new books (both physical and one NetGalley ARC), and I downloaded some purchases, too.
In the residence, our dining room table is overflowing with people who want to join us. Why? I suspect that our chatter and laughter are a draw. Good, right? We have had some lively conversations, not always agreeable, but there is nothing passive about us, that’s for sure. I am reminded (almost) of the days in the university student union. Hmm.
Anyway…let’s grab some coffee and take a closer look at the week.

Shay Miller wants to find love, but it eludes her. She wants to be fulfilled, but her job is a dead end. She wants to belong, but her life is increasingly lonely.
Until Shay meets the Moore sisters. Cassandra and Jane live a life of glamorous perfection, and always get what they desire. When they invite Shay into their circle, everything seems to get better.
Shay would die for them to like her.
She may have to.
That was my week. Was yours exciting/adventurous/content? Let’s take a peek at this delicious treat I recently enjoyed: (I think I have shared this before…but we had it again!).
