Hello, September. This year has flown by. I'm not sure how I feel about that, but I'm looking forward to fall. I may start getting things ready for Halloween a bit early this year. I could use the extra boost of good feelings.
Happy Labor Day to those who are celebrating a day off today. I have spent most of my long weekend working from home. That's just the way things are at work right now. I'm looking forward to things slowing down soon.
As for my reading week, I'd like a complete redo, please. 2 out of 3 books were a total bust for me.
Books Read Last Week
Mirror Image by Michael Scott
I could not make it through Mirror Image. I hated that book. I made it about 75%, and that's all I could do. Between the constant info dumping of things I already knew and the ridiculous, repetitive scenarios to "feed" the mirror, I had had enough. Consider this my review.
2/10: Hated It
The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman
I loved this one. I promise to review it soon.
The Jersey Devil by Hunter Shea
I'm so mad at this book. I'll review it soon, but I won't leave you in suspense. One of the jersey devils was described as looking like a cross between a child with down syndrome and a goat. I can't even. This may be the first book ever to get no stars at all.
I haven't managed to pick up anything yet. I think my mind is trying to resist a repeat of last week. This might be a really good week for some rereads.
US Open tennis is happening so my time is pretty well split between working and watching tennis for another week. Does anyone watch tennis? There was a really great (brutal!) match on yesterday that had me watching behind my hands. I was so nervous. My dude lost. The match was over 4 hours long and as close as a match could get. It's a lot of fun, but tennis is a huge time suck.
What about you? What are you reading this week? Be sure to let me know in the comments or leave me a link!
