Purposefully, a very light add week. Only a couple in the mail this week. I'm still getting settled in the new job, and just signed a lease on a place closer to work, so I'll be moving at the end of June.
This Wednesday I will be having some surgery, and crazily, I'm looking forward to the forced downtime afterward to catch up on my reading. Of course, now I'm going to have to also start packing, which is something I hate, hate, hate.
I've been reading Little Black Lies by Sharon Bolton. It's really good, but I just haven't had enough down time to read in earnest.
My daughter graduated on Thursday so we had lots of family and friends time this week, which was wonderful. On Friday, the house felt too quiet and empty. I've got three grown up girls now, which makes me both happy and melancholy for the days of being overwhelmed by little kids.
Now with my youngest daughter all grown, I get to have the much anticipated mid life crisis. What do you do when you've spent your whole life raising kids and working way too much? I've been divorced for 18 years, so I don't even have anyone else to stare at or complain about.
Maybe I'll finally read without guilt.......
In the Mail
The only book I got in the mail this week was from Booksparks for the Summer Reading Challenge 2015.
Worthy by Catherine Ryan Hyde....Virginia finally had the chance to explore a relationship with Aaronwhen he asked her on a date. She had been waiting, hoping that the widower and his young son, Buddy, would welcome her into their lives. But a terrible tragedy strikes on the night of their first kiss, crushing their hopes for a future together.
Nineteen years later, Virginia is engaged, though she has not forgotten Aaron or Buddy. When her dog goes missing and it comes to light that her fiancé set him loose, a distraught Virginia breaks off the engagement and is alone once again. A shy young man has found the missing pet, and although he’s bonded with the animal, he answers his conscience and returns the dog. Before long, Virginia and the young man discover a connection from their pasts that will help them let go of painful memories and change their lives forever.
I've always like Hyde's books. But they are usually tearjerkers, and this looks like no exception.
