**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.
Another busy week has flown by, with numerous appointments…and great books. I read and reviewed three books, all of them NetGalley ARCs being released on August 6, and loved them all. Four blog posts almost brought me to my previous level of connecting with other bloggers. Now I am in a countdown to my surgery, tentatively scheduled for July 22…but first I have to pass a couple of additional tests.
Meanwhile, my granddaughter has been helping with my interiors…and enjoying lunches, too. Here is one of my favorite photos of her at lunch at one of our special places, California Pizza Kitchen:
Back at my little apartment, she hung the rest of my photos. Here’s a favorite version of my entry way. Note the Elvis handbag on the hall tree. We emptied documents out of it in our shredding exercise, and the photos above the table were snapped by my eldest son when he was living in Ireland:
Now…let’s take a peek at my blogging while sipping an additional cup of coffee:
LAST WEEK ON THE BLOGS:
Empty mailbox…but I downloaded one e-book.
The author of Other People’s Houses and The Garden of Small Beginnings delivers a quirky and charming novel chronicling the life of confirmed introvert Nina Hill as she does her best to fly under everyone’s radar.
Meet Nina Hill: A young woman supremely confident in her own…shell.
I love Waxman’s books…and can’t wait to meet this wonderful character.
My next ARC is Because You’re Mine, by Rea Frey (Release Date – 8/6)
An “insidious, suspenseful tale” (J.T. Ellison) with a “shocker of an ending you won’t see coming” (Michele Campbell), Because You’re Mine by Rea Frey, the author who “brings to mind Jodi Picoult” (Booklist) and “will appeal to readers of Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen” (Sally Hepworth) is a novel about how the truth will set you free.
But it’s the lies that keep you safe.
That was my week. What did yours look like? Last night I enjoyed Tiramisu. Delicious!
