Words, words, words, to quote Hamlet

Where has my time gone? Ah yes, I took a reading break, then a scrapbooking break to scrap our vacation, and now we're headed into a hugely busy week! So I'll be reading again (as the scrapbook is almost done).

What am I reading? Well, let me tell you:


  • Reclaiming Nick and Finding Stefanie, volumes 1 and 3 in the Noble Legacy Series, by Susan May Warren. (Book 2 is Taming Rafe, and my library doesn't have it...so I guess I'll have to catch it another time, as I'm not purchasing books during the month of August!). My review for Stefanie's story is due next week. I have to say, after briefly visiting eastern Montana on our recent vacation; Susan Warren did a fabulous job of describing the landscape. Gorgeous.
  • Curves by Gary Heavin. I'm a Curves circuit coach part-time, and I'm taking on the added responsibility of teaching the 6-week Weight Loss Challenge this fall. To that end, I'm reading the NYT bestselling book, sometimes.
  • Love Starts With Elle by Rachel Hauck. Mmmmmmm, so glad to have this book in my hot little tote bag! I love me some Rachel Hauck chick lit.
  • Catch a Rising Star by Tracey Bateman. Drama Queens series. How could you not love a series with that name? I am hoping to have book 2 before reading book 3, which I'm reviewing for CFBA next week.

I received quite a few PBS wishes in the past week or so; seems as if that website is feast or famine. I noted on a previous blog post that I have book 2 in an Air Force mystery series, and I want to read it as well! But book review books take precedence, and that's that.

I did finish the Monk mystery. I love Monk. If you don't watch it, I highly recommend it. Such OCD fun. And while I miss Dr. Kroger (Stanley Kamel suddenly passed away this summer, to everyone's dismay), I adore Hector Elizondo as the new therapist. He's divine.

I agree with you about Monk, Pattie. Such an entertaining, clean show! I'm slightly behind on watching them, however, as I record and save each week's episode to watch later.

All We Ever Wanted by Emily Giffin My rating: 5 of 5 stars All We Ever Wanted is worthy of the buzz it's receiving this summer. I h...
