Thank Goodness This Week Is A Wrap! #6

Posted May 10, 2020 by Marsha in Thank Goodness This Week Is A Wrap / 8 Comments

Another crazy week in paradise!  Kinda.  Sorta.

This post has been shared on The Sunday Post, a weekly recap from so many amazing blogs is hosted by Kimberly over at Caffeinated Reviewer.  This word link and the graphic will take you to The Sunday Post meme for this week – enjoy.  🙂

Life got crazy around here in February, and ever since – and I’m sure for most of the rest of the world as well.  As a lone wolf myself, (which comes naturally to me) I’m used to enjoying just my own or my family’s company.  Not going out when the mood to socialize hits me is… odd.  But by self-isolating, I feel we’re doing the right thing.  So far we are doing fine physically – just going a bit bonkers from only enjoying the walk down the driveway to the mailbox or endless (it seems) walks around the backyard with my pup, Harley.  I know others have not been as lucky and my heart breaks for them.  I’ve gone through odd days, some mourning doing nothing more than playing video games, others a massive cleaning spree, but always books are my escape.  So I’ve read a lot… a lot.  Not doing so well with keeping up with reviews but working on that.  There is no “normal” at the moment, only getting through the day and thankful for our health knowing that could change at any moment.  Maybe this is the new normal, for now, at least.

Anyway — this week on the blog (May 1-10):

Yeah, I know.  It’s a lot for one week – but, as I mentioned earlier, I’ve gotten way behind on getting reviews up even though I’ve been reading up a storm lately.  This coming week will be overloaded as well – but then I should be back on track with scheduled posts and quick “I just read this great book” posts.

I hope you and your loved ones are doing well.  I’m sending out a virtual ((Hug)) to everyone who needs one right about now.

  1. That is a lot. I was going to say I didn’t know any of the authors even but then I saw Shannon Meyer and Mandy Roth. So those are from the #PWF offerings? I’ve enjoyed some of them. I’m reading and messing around figuring things out for the blog. I am also grateful we have everything and can just stay home.

    Take care and happy reading!

      Yes, they are both the second titles in their separate series within PWF. And each has solidly gotten me committed to finishing up those series no matter how long. 🙂 I’ve loved all the Fab13’s stories, some more than others but still — I’ve read some other authors who are writing in this “new” genre but while good they just haven’t caught up with my enjoyment of the Fab13.

      If you enjoyed them they do have a Facebook group where the books and soon to be released titles are the hot topics.

      Oh, I hear ya on that. But even this lifelong lone wolf is getting antsy at needing to stay home as opposed to wanting to stay home. I’ve found there is definitely a difference. 🙂

  2. That is quite an undertaking of book reviews. I’ve been enjoying the solitude. I felt like I needed some time out from all of our social obligations. Can’t say I’ve been unhappy.

      I’ve escaped quite a bit into books during all of this craziness – but hadn’t kept up on the reviews, so that week was a major backlog of catchup reviews. 🙂

      Isn’t it ironic that in order to take a break from a hectic life we have to be told to do so? If nothing else we’ve been given a chance to stop, and take a breath.

    Good for you with the reading. It’s slow going for me. Too many worries on the mind. Have a good week.

      I’ve had days when books were an escape – and days when I couldn’t focus on another world when the real one I live in is so out of control. So I completely understand that feeling.

      I hope you find peace and relief from worries – this certainly isn’t the normal we all knew but one we may have to get used to for a while. Be safe and take care of you.
