After many more hot days, our temperatures dropped a little yesterday, but today is at 106.  A little better than 110, but not much!  I have been curled up in the air conditioning today, except for this morning, which was cool…I was reading on the patio for awhile.

Here’s what I’ve been up to this week.

  1. Will be interested to see what you think of Always Watching, a friend has just reviewed it and she was really disappointed. I had high expectations after loving Still Missing.
    Enjoy the slightly cooler weather and happy reading 🙂

      • I really hope I love Always Watching, as the premise really grabbed me…and I loved her other books. Thanks for visiting, Teddyree…and you’re right, it’s really HOT. One summer (seven years ago) we had around ten days of 110 and higher, as high as 114. I took off for the coast!

  2. Looks like you’ve got some good books coming up, Laurel-Rain. I haven’t read any of them but I have Chevy Stevens’ first book on my shelf waiting to be read. I’m in the middle of BIg Girl Panties and The Last Original Wife – enjoying both. Have a great week!

    On another subject, I just received my first Vine books and am trying to locate a “read by” date. Is there such a thing? Wondering where to find it. Maybe I’m concerned for nothing?

    • Mary, the “read by” date is on the Amazon Vine page, under the tab Vines for Review. It tells how many days you have before the deadline.

      This is something recent….and I stumbled upon it.

      Hope you enjoy the first Chevy Stevens book…I loved her first two, and hope to enjoy this one.

      Thanks for stopping by.

    • I have heard that others were disappointed….I am still holding onto hope that I’ll enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by, Shelleyrae, and I see that the forecast is 104 today, and continuing in the triple digits through Thursday. I’m not surprised…this is how it is for us. We just got a later start this year, meaning we enjoyed cooler weather all through May and into June.

    • Thanks, Beth…I have the sliding glass door open now to enjoy the 70 degrees and slightly higher we will have until almost noon. Then it will heat up to 104. But air conditioning helps! I am loving my reads, and I’m glad you could stop by.

  3. Enjoy your books this week. I finished What the Spell? by Brittany Geragotelis (4/5 stars) last week. This week I’m reading Solaris by Stanislaw Lem, Fields of Elysium by A.B. Whelan, and OCD Love Story by Corey Ann Haydu.
