Hi!

Hope everyone is staying cool in this heat.

Not much is happening this weekend except trying to stay cool. I'm going to try to read outside weekend and float in the pool.

I didn't get much reading in this past week....I did read and enjoy the new Julie Anne Long book It Happened One Midnight and I'm currently reading Scandal In The Night by Maggie Robinson. Up next the new Jude Deveraux book -- True Love.

Any plans this weekend....what are you reading!

Keep Cool Everyone!

Happy weekend everyone! It's my first weekend back since vacation. I started reading Lover at Last by JR Ward last weekend and I'm about half way through it. It's very good and I'm enjoying it a lot. I imagine I may be able to finish it this weekend.

On Sunday, my mom and dad and me and my brother are taking our kids (mine and my niece) to see Wicked at 2 pm. The kids are all very excited and I'm looking forward to seeing it again. I saw it with my husband a couple of years ago and it was tough to follow because he complained the whole time! :evil:

Work was a typical grind this week after being gone for almost 10 days but I am still feeling refreshed and in fact, already planning in my head where can I go next! :D I'm never going that long without a real vacation again. You know...where you completely check out and don't answer emails. I think for my mental health...I need that.

Have a great weekend girls!

Hi All,

I think I'll re-read "A Wanted Man" by Lee Child. Have been in a reading slump since Vince Flynn died. None of the romances I have on had have called my name at all.

It's been raining here for a week so I've stood in the window and watched the weeds grow before my eyes. I should be outside right now taking care of them... but you see I am a bit of a slacker. That's what awaits me for this weekend and many days (weeks) to come.

Y'All have a good one!

--Janie

Aside from running for groceries, no plans here. Too hot to move. For a change of pace, I'm reading (for review) a fantasy book, Charming by Elliott James. It's pretty good so far, I like the lead character. It is a little...erm..bloody...though, lol. Once I get done that, I think it will be the newest Monk book (also for review) and see how the new author holds up against Lee Goldberg who I always enjoy.

Edited to correct author name.

I picked up Hunting Eve by Iris Johansen from the library on Tuesday so I'm enjoying that. I had to wait until I finished Robyn Carr's The Newcomer before I started it so I'm really anxious to get into it. Not very far yet.

While I'm "Hunting Eve", I'll be literally hunting classmates for my 50th grade school reunion. Some people are just hard to find. Others are easy to find but don't want to be found LOL.

Other than that, I'll be indoors until this heat wave passes -- or maybe at the YMCA at the pool. Have a good weekend everyone. July is over half over, can you believe it? They are selling "back to school" supplies in the stores!

Janie, if you haven't read Brad Thor, be sure & check him out. He and Vince Flynn wrote very much alike. Thor's Scot Harveth books are excellent. After Flynn died, Thor wrote of how he encouraged him and helped him when he started his career. It shows too. They write the same type books and I'm not even sure which I like best, truth to tell.

A nice long weekend coming up for me. Brandon and I traded my Tuesday (he will work) and me his Friday. I am not crazy about working Fridays, but he is in another race so I said yes. I turned in my resume for another job at the "y". This is for and opening for a Director at the Senior center. Still part-time and you work 4 days a week, and have off in winter if schools have off. I think it will be fun because I know some the seniors... some real characters, but nothing I couldn't handle. I am nervous about this and hope I am making the right move. if I get it. I keep on saying "It is in God's hands, if I am meant to get it I will." If I don't it will be ok because I like my regular part time job fine, but was lured by the money and the freedom of being at the Senior Center.
I lost my Kat Martin book Against the Law and someone just found it and returned it to me... so, I am finishing that, next will be a Kristin Hannah book Summer Island for book club. I love her writing.
Hope you all have a nice "cool" weekend and happy reading.

Good luck, Paulette. Hope you get the job!

It's been too hot to do much of anything. The good news is I'm getting a lot of reading done since I'm not doing other things. In the last week I've read:

Ice Storm - Anne Stuart (4.5 Stars. My favorite from the Ice series so far)
True Love and Other Disasters - Rachel Gibson (4 Stars - Cute hockey romance)
Bring Me Home for Christmas - Robyn Carr (4 Stars)

Now I'm reading Sin Undone by Larissa Ione. I love her Demonica series. I heard there will be another book out soon.

I'm not reading much this weekend. My Aunt Laverne passed away and her funeral is Sunday.

Happy weekend! I am reading Back To You by Robin Kaye, book one of her new Red Hook series. Nice light and fun contemporary romance, which is about all I can handle right now.

Been getting a lot of reading and knitting done while I spend days with my dad, who has moved from the hospital back to the care center. This week we will get hospice care started for him too, so.......day to day is the only way I can live my life at present. Dad is always happy and in a good mood, so the time we spend together is good. He likes to go out for lunch or dinner, so we can still get out when he feels up to it.

Paulette, good luck with the job interview! I love my new very part time on call position and working with seniors. I have had 2 weeks off and now have 3 shifts this coming week, so the hours work well for me.

AmeliaD, sorry about your aunt. {{{big hug}}}

I finished two books, both of which I have been working on all week. One is/was a paperback, PROMISE ME ALWAYS by Christine Lynxwiler. The other an e-book, HER HUSBAND'S HARLOT by Grace Callaway.

I have been finding it hard to find something to hold my attention but I picked up a new release by Beth Harbison - Chose the Wrong Guy, Gave Him the Wrong Finger. Love her writing, very good book.

Thanks for the heads-up vol fan. I'll check him out when I get a chance. I do have The Apostle here at the house. It's such a long series would that be an okay place to start? My library doesn't have all of his books available.

I was looking to see if Brian Haig ( http://www.brianhaig.net ) had a new book coming out (he doesn't) and noticed some news he had with Vince Flynn before the cancer was known. Thought you might be interested, it would have been a great series.
