Recent Updates and Currently Reading | May 21

Hello, my dear reader friends! I hope you are having an excellent weekend. This update is going to cover two weeks, but honestly - I don't have much to report! Last weekend was my birthday/mother's day weekend so I didn't have a chance to get online to post updates.

Things have been so stressful at work - we are restructuring yet again and probably not for the last time - so I just haven't had enough mental power to read when I get home.

This morning my son woke up super sick so I've been with him in the emergency room. I'm getting this update out late - but I didn't want another week to go by! But that's where I am and how things are going. I'm hoping to spend some time later today reading blogs and reviews and posting some of my own! We were supposed to go watch Guardians 3 today, but life had other plans as it often does.

Currently Reading

Infinity Gate by M.R. Carey At the End of Every Day by Arianna Rieche

Infinitey Gate by M.R. Carey - I'm still very much enjoying this one.

At the End of Every Day by Arianna Rieche - I needed an escape! I was in the mood for a book like Piranesi - a world I could get lost in, and I thought this might fit the bill. So far - I'm a happy reader! It's weird which is just what I wanted.

Added to the TBR

The Ferryman by Justin Cronin At the End of Every Day by Arianna Rieche

The Ferryman by Justin Cronin - I forgot to mention in my last update post that my pre-order of The Ferryman arrived. I don't have any immediate plans to read it, but I'm looking forward to getting to it eventually.

At the End of Every Day by Arianna Rieche - Just after posting my Wednesday wishlist post, this book arrived in the mail! So thank you very much to Atria for sending me a copy! It releases in July, but I've already picked it up.

This post is being shared as part of The Sunday Salon at Readerbuzz, Book Date’s It's Monday! What Are You Reading? and Caffeinated Book Reviewer's The Sunday Post.

  5. Oh gosh yes, you have a lot on your plate!!! I sure hope your son is better soon!

  6. I have the ARC of the Ferryman and should have already read it, but I'm running behind! I sure understand life getting in the way of blogging sometimes - I've dropped several of my usual meme participations cuz I just can't keep up right now. Sigh. Hope you have a terrific week.

  7. I hope your son is feeling better. I hope this is a better week for you.

  8. Happy Belated Birthday to your mother!

    Changes at work are the worst. Our company sold to another company that I'm not familiar with and I'm wondering what changes they'll do. Luckily they say they won't decrease our pay, but I'm wondering if they will in the future.

    I hope your son is ok and feeling better. It's always scary when your child is sick, no matter what age they are.

  9. I sure hope your son gets well soon! Happy Birthday!! Work restructure sucks. That is all. LOL

  10. Oh no!! I am so sorry to hear your son is so sick!! I hope you are both home now and things are on the upswing, and that he is back to himself soon.

  11. Oh no! I hope your son is doing better!

    I've been thinking of getting The Ferryman, it sounds like a nice big tome I'd like :)

  12. Happy belated mother's day and birthday. I hope you were well celebrated. Sending well wishes for the kid. Good luck with the restructure. Those are never fun.

  13. Oh snap, I'm so sorry to hear about the chaotic weeks you've been having, Jen. I hope you were able to celebrate your birthday a bit and I hope your son feels better son. Take care!

  14. So sorry to hear your son was so sick and I hope he continues to recover - it's always such a worry:(. A belated Happy Birthday. I've requested an arc for The Ferryman and am crossing my fingers that I get a copy. I hope the coming week is less stressful!

  15. I hope your so is okay, Jen! Scary to hear that you're at the ER. :(

  16. City of Ghost was more of a three stars for me.
    Here my review:
    Have a great week.

  18. Oh no, I'm sorry to hear about your son, hopefully he's okay and feeling better. And hope you can get to The Ferryman sooner rather than later!
