OMG! I cant believe it's the end of July already . I have to admit that this summer has flown by!

No plans on Sunday but Saturday will be very busy. In the morning I have a memorial service and then a double birthday party in the afternoon. So it looks like Sunday will be spent running around and doing errands. Today is my good friend's birthday, we are going to do a little shopping and then out to lunch!

I finally finished the new Elizabeth Essex book -- Scandal In The Night -- it was just an okay read for me. I also read and enjoyed an ARC of A Lady's Secret Weapon by Tracey Develyn -- loved it. Up next The Suitor by Mary Balogh and then I have no idea.

Any plans this weekend? What are you reading?

Have a Good Weekend!

No plans here after the grocery store today. I just started Gaming For Keeps by Seleste Delaney and am enjoying it so far. I'm finding I'm gravitating toward the geeky type stories. Maybe because I can relate to them better?

The weather here in middle TN is beautiful--low 80's and low humidity. I am hoping to get a lot of reading in this weekend. I am not sure what, but I am finishing up reading JR Ward's Envy.

Today is my 27th wedding anniversary. We have no plans but maybe a bike ride this afternoon.

Happy weekend!

I'm currently reading Officer Off Limits by Tessa Bailey. I like her stuff...they're short and hot.

I'm not sure what I'll start next. Maybe Beautiful Bitch by Christina Laurens.

My husband wants to go to a movie tonight so I'm hoping I can get him to go see Red 2. I've been sick all week so I'm sure he's ready for us to get out.

Unfortunately, he got laid off his job last week that he'd been at for the last 9 years. So he's been working around the house and taking care of me while he figures out what his next move is. We finally finished his updated resume today and started sending it out.

Have a good weekend ladies!

Kyle, Sorry to hear your husband got laid off. Hope he can find a job soon.

Happy anniversary Eaglegirl!!!

It's a beautiful day in Pennsylvania. The sun is out, it's about 75 degrees and the humidity is LOW! This morning I cleaned windows outside, cleaned out the grill, and scrubbed the bathroom. This afternoon I'm planning on paying bills and trying a new cookie recipe. After that, I'm done. It's reading time.

This week I finished Sin Undone by Larissa Ione. Now I'm reading Promise Me by Harlan Coben. Not sure what I'll start next.

In the blink of an eye, I finished Gaming For Keeps by Seleste Delaney. It was a great, novella length read. Easily got my five star rating. It's a romantic suspense with a geek as a spy. Great story.

I'm now trying Texas Hold 'Em by Kay David. No opinion yet as I've literally just started.

Thank you all for your well wishes on my anniversary. We are not celebrating much. We did go on a bike ride which was something positive since we are both trying to lose weight and spend more time with each other....sometimes when you are empty nesters, you lose touch with your spouse, but so far so good!

I just finished Envy and I think I will start on Rapture. I am in a JR Ward frame of mind.

My oldest son just got back from Texas. He drove with a friend for a job interview. He downloaded all my audiobooks from my iTunes library....you all will never guess what they listened to on the way to TX....50 Shades :oops: :lol: All I have to say is that he is shocked that I listen to stuff like that...next stop is on Dr. Phil's couch :lol:

Congratulations Eaglegirl!

I have a wedding to go to today (and it's raining) The wedding is at 2:30 and the reception is at 6:30 -- that's kind of weird! It's my neighbor's son and I'm thinking seriously of just skipping the wedding and going to the reception later on. We'll see.

I just finished the first in the Whiskey Creek series by Brenda Novak which I really enjoyed. New author for me and I was pleasantly surprised. Now I'm reading a different kind of book for me: The Longest Road: Overland in Search of American from Key West to the Arctic Ocean by Philip Caputo. The author traveled by car pulling an Airstream trailer all those miles in the hopes of finding out what makes us united as Americans as opposed to all the political clashes. So far he's trashed conservatives twice and I'm only on page 34! Still I'm going through with reading it because I'm curious to see what he says about people. If he continues to be so onesided, I'm going to write him a letter LOL. My big disappointment is that there aren't any pictures -- well maybe two, one at the beginning and one at the end (I peeked).

Nice quiet weekend for me. Happy Anniversary Eaglegirl, and Kyle, I am sure your husband will find something, or be called back to work. I am keeping him in my prayers.
No big plans for the weekend. My sis and her hubby are up a camp and my daughter and hubby are with his parents and kids.( they just came home, so they are doing "Pittsburgh" fun things.)
I had book club and we finished summer Island by Kristin Hannah. I absolutely loved the book. I am starting Kevin O'Brien's new one Unspeakable. I love his thrillers.

No word on the new job, yet. They closed the request on Friday and I think interviews are coming up. Will keep you all updated. Mixed feelings about this.

Happy weekend all, and happy reading.
