2019 Reading Challenge

Didn’t quite meet the goal in 2018, but that’s never stopped me from trying again.  Same goal as last year, 52 books.  With my buying ban, once again, firmly in place, I plan to [attempt] to read books that I currently own or library books.  As always, I make no promises to myself, or anyone…

R.I.P. Moma Cat

Many of you went on her journey of pregnancy, fostering, birth and rerelease into the wild with me. Sadly Moma Cat’s journey has come to an end.  We found her in her shelter this morning.  Best guess is she was sick and we didn’t know it.  She seemed perfectly all right yesterday and I’m positive…

Grateful My Hubby is a Cheapskate…

…let me preface this with, he’s not really; he spoils the crap out of me and our girls.   So ever since my dad passed my mom, brother & myself have made a point of getting together every month or two and having dinner, catching up, just seeing each other.  It’s just the three of…

When I Die…

…it will probably be beneath anavalanche  of books and Funko Pops. I had a serious discussion with myself and decided I’m okay with that.

Review: Saga, Volume 7

Review: Wowzers this series is getting harder and harder to read.  The loss is going to be the death of me.  The family is together again, but still separated.  Alanna’s having another baby, Hazel’s growing up so fast and has moved into her bratty phase.   So much drama and angst.  I hate it.  I…

Review: A Ruin Of Shadows

Review: I have no idea how to review this, because I don’t want to spoil it.  I’ll do my best.  The story was original and once I stop letting myself be distracted by outside forces (e.g. children, husband) I couldn’t put it down!   The author has quite a way with words.  They were so…

Stranded! Book Swap 2018

So nearly a week later, I’ve found a minute to post my box.  Mallory, thank you so much, I love it!   Where to start?  Okay, how cleaver were you to send me a message in a bottle?!  I never thought to do that and was tickled by it.  I adore the wrapping paper and…

Review: Master And Commander

Review: This book is the beginning of Jack Aubrey’s captaincy, and the start of physician Stephen Maturin’s tenor as a naval surgeon.   Jack is made captain of the Sloop, Sophie.  In his excitement at finally being made captain, Aubrey seeks out Maturin, with whom he had an unpleasant meeting with the previous evening, to apologize and invite to…

Reading progress update: I’ve read 200 out of 459 pages.

Finally got back to this one. I’m not even sure how long ago I started it [it’s easily been years.]  I’m loving the early development of Jack & Stephen’s friendship. Original post: Virago77.booklikes.com/post/1814587/reading-progress-update-i-ve-read-200-out-of-459-pages
