Weekly Wrap-Up Sunday Post #8

Posted July 12, 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.  🙂

Just Life:

It’s been a relatively quiet week around the house and the blog(s).  I don’t have enough cheese to serve with a good whine but — I’m going stir crazy with only going to the mailbox down the driveway and the backyard & patio.  February seems like decades ago when I last went out.  Yes, we do delivery for just about everything.  When someone you love to the moon and back is physically disabled and this damned virus would kill them without question – then you stay home, wear a mask around people who have to come into your home (nurses), and get essentials delivered whenever possible… but that doesn’t stop the stir crazies nor the cabin fevers, right?  But we’re surviving – and that’s the ultimate goal.  So.  Someday is a dream I’ll cling to for now. (whine done, hope there was enough cheese 🙂 )

Reviews at Keeper Bookshelf this week:

I had some catching up to do this past week (and I’m still behind).  Where I once read to escape and could easily fall into any world – well, that’s something else this virus has stolen from me.  But, another week and I should be up to date on ARCs and can get back into a reasonable rhythm again.

How To Catch A Cowboy by Karen Foley

Daisy’s Summer Mission by Hannah Pearl

Just Friends by Lucy Keeling

Wrangling the Cowboy’s Heart by Leah Vale

The Life She Left Behind by Nicole Trope

Little Village of Second Chances by Gina Hollands

To Catch an Earl by Kate Bateman

A Stitch in Time by Amelia C. Adams

Wanted by the Marshal by Susan Lute

Issued by Paris Wynters

Haunt with Me by Rose Pressey

Bait N’ Witch by Abigail Owen

The Rake is Taken by Tracy Sumner

No, I didn’t read all of this last week – but I did get the reviews written up and posted here and everywhere else they needed to be.  As I mentioned, I’m behind and that means I’ve read a lot to escape but putting my thoughts together for a review took a bit longer.  *shrugs*  Hopefully, after this week’s posts I’ll be able to get to current and expected releases on the blog – and get my butt back on track.

Over on Shifter Haven (my Paranormal/Shifter Romance blog) this week:

Enticing the Wolf by Rayna Tyler

Mated to the Beast by Ruby Knoxx

Iron Flats Justice by Elle Thorne

Fake Fiancée Mate by Harmony Raines

Shifter Haven is truly my escape blog, the place where I indulge myself completely in a genre that I adore — and the stories are usually readable within a day (or less) so I can do some escaping while letting other things in life stew in the background.  🙂

That’s a wrap!

That’s it for me this week.  I hope you have a safe, happy reading week.

  1. My aunt is at high-risk and has only left her house for doctor’s appointments since February. She’s normally very active and loves to travel. I don’t know how she (and you) have done this so strictly for so long! But when it’s a matter of literal life and death, you do what you need to do. Enjoy your week and be well.

      I can speak only for myself, but I took this virus seriously from the beginning – my thoughts back then were “better safe than sorry later”. As we got more information it became a simple example of loving someone enough to make the sacrifices necessary for their well-being – a mom will do anything she can to protect her kid, including taking care of herself 🙂

      I hope you and your aunt continue to do well – we will get through this eventually.

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the visit.

      Aww. Thanks. We’ll be fine, just seems that every now and then I need to let the frustrations out – and the blog seems to be where I vent. 🙂 We are all in survival mode now.

      Thanks for visiting, I always appreciate it. Be safe, be well. We’ll get through this craziness… eventually.

      It’s a crazy world now – but we’ll get through it. It’s really just common sense to me since I’m listening to the medical and scientific experts (not the ‘others’) on realistic expectations of this situation. Wearing a mask, social distancing, washing your hands — it’s all common sense, yet it has become a political statement to so many people… I’m just astounded by how little some people think of the bigger picture and only are willing to see their own inconvenience. *shrugs* Not gonna change them though.

      I’m slowly getting caught up, now to stay caught up. 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by, I appreciate the visit.

      Heather, I actually envy you right now for living in a country that takes this seriously and people willing to do the right, logical thing… even when it’s inconvenient.

      I’m so glad for you that you got to get out. Funny how a trip to the supermarket has become such a ‘treat of getting out’ isn’t it?

      Most of the people I know personally are wearing masks, the rest just believe this is a hoax or see wearing a mask as an infringement on their ‘freedom’. I’d rather be inconvenienced than dead… but that’s me. *shrugs*

      Thank you for the visit, I appreciate it.
