 Happy weekend to you all! 

Check out this read on Amazon.

I'm having an issue uploading images.

Read my 56:

Having seven other people to help pitch in to clean the kitchen made it take at least twice as long as if I'd done it by myself. Having a vocal cat underfoot calling out directions made it worse. However, they all insisted on helping, so here I was, weaving through a crowd to get to the sink. At long last the kitchen was cleaner than it had been before they arrived. Social hour was over, it was time to hit the books.

I pulled the soft blanket all the way up to my nose and sunk into my cozy loveseat. Hah. Loveseat was a terrible name for the one piece of furniture  I chose to keep when I moved out of our home. Well, Spencer's parent's rental home. It wasn't 'our' anything anymore. My husband Spencer --  I mean, as of today, my ex-husband Spencer told me I could keep whatever I wanted. He didn't care.  That was the core problem with Spencer. He didn't care. About anything.

Q: Are you lost if you don't have a book to read?
A: Yes. Completely and utterly.


  1. This was one of my favorite books. I hope you enjoy it too. Have a great weekend!

  2. I'm so with you. I'd be lost without a book to at least have the option of reading.

    I certainly understand where the protagonist is coming from. Sometimes, having help takes longer than just doing the work itself by yourself.

  3. Sounds like a great book and I love the cover too!

    Have a great weekend!

  4. That opening quote is sort of heart-breaking. That is what I've heard is true about why people get divorces -- because one person doesn't care anymore. Sad.

  5. I love your answer to the Book Blogger Hop question. It's very concise and to the point. :D

    In certain situations, I'll feel lost without a book, like on a plane or staying in a hotel by myself. I usually opt to bring my Kindle when I travel rather than physical books so if I do finish reading my current book, then I can go right into another one. My Kindle has save me a lot when I'm sitting waiting at the doctor too. :D

  6. This is a new to me book... I don't read a lot of cozies but I'm tempted to give some a try!

REVIEW: It was weird starting off with a He-Man lookalike, Thunder the Barabarian), until I realized a character from the film was watching the cartoon in the airplane. Still, it was kind of cool to reminice about two cartoons from my childhood. So many great actors bring the film to life! What a fun story it was too! Although
