This, that, and the other.....

What a busy weekend! I had every intention to get on here and post but never could find the time. I had to plan sharing time for our ward this week so that kept me busy and of course reading, reading, and more reading.  

Spent a little time on Facebook stalking people too!  I love Facebook because I can keep track of the goings on in my friends and family's lives. However, I don't post much info or comments to their pages so I feel like a stalker most of the time!  That sounds kind of creepy doesn't it? I am going to try and be better and actually post comments to these people sometime. I don't know why I haven't done that much in the first place since I love to talk and converse with people. Maybe because it is so public? That sounds crazy since I am writing a blog right? I have to admit though that the first post I had on here was very terrifying for me. I still get a little worried what people that read this think but with each post it does get easier. That is another reason why I try to post everyday to get past that fear.(Another reason I could not be an author - other than the reason I can't write) I am going to get a Facebook page for this blog but time just ran away from me this weekend and I still haven't gotten to it. I will try to get to that this week.

Now let's get to the reading, reading, and more reading part!  Well I finished Journey of Honor by Jaclyn M Hawkes. I am hosting a review for the online book tour for Media Guests on Monday, March 28th so I will post that review at that time. A sneak peek? NOPE! It will be worth the wait:)

Then I started reading another book and didn't even have the chance to get on here to update my current reading status. I just finished A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness. I will have that review in the next day or so. Stay tuned because you won't want to miss this one!

It is a large book - 579 pages. I was so deeply engrossed like I usually am with books. I tend to take on the mood of the story too. My poor family! I am truly blessed that they continually put up with me and keep me around after all these years of manic reading. So needless to say I am trying to finish the last 50 pages of this book and nobody would leave me alone! This was very frustrating because I was so into this story. I kept changing rooms all day to try to get this finished. I couldn't even find the solace in my own room. Once one kid comes in then there is always more to follow. Then of course the dogs had to join in the party too. It wasn't even like they were talking to me either. They just come in and start having their own conversations with each other. Couldn't they possibly have done this somewhere else? At least my husband knows me enough to just let me finish and the whole house will be happier! I did finish and I will post the review in the next day or so.

Well the night is still early so I am off to start my next book - Birth Marked by Caragh M O'Brien. Very excited to try out this author! Don't worry I will have this review ready for you by the end of the week!

We have been friends on Goodreads THISWHOLETIME and I never knew it was you. I totally thought you were another Melissa I know, and I was always surprised at how sophisticated her taste in books was...and now I know. It suddenly all makes sense! It was you!

Anyway, thanks for stopping by...I look forward to having another irl blogging buddy :)

P.S. You are a great writer.
