Once again I’ll be linking this up with the Sunday Post (hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer).
Well, to all of my fellow American followers, Happy 4th of July today! I hope that you get to have a nice day however you like to spend it. I’ll be going to my brother’s house tonight and we will have our parents, aunts and uncles, and cousins there. My 9 year old niece does an “art show” with lots of projects she’s worked on with my sister-in-law, her mom, who has an art degree. And there will be lots of great food. My brother will do fireworks for us to watch in the evening. Although I actually saw some really neat fireworks at the Kansas City Royals baseball game (which we won for a change!) this past Friday night. Although, with them doing a salute to military personnel and knowing how sometimes they say that veterans aren’t comfortable with the fireworks, I wondered how all the loud noises were for them. But here is a minute long video I took in the middle of the fireworks. They lasted like three whole songs worth!
Other things that happened this past week. Mostly rainy days. I did get to the library and get some writing and outlining done, since Camp NaNoWriMo started on Thursday and so far I’m ahead on my goal. Although on Monday I will need to catch up since I didn’t get any writing done on Saturday and I won’t today either. The closer I get to actually finishing writing this story makes me want to start thinking about a cover for the book. But once I’m finished I’ll have a lot of editing to go back and do, so I am trying to wait!
I found out I have to wait until October 1st before I can apply to take out my Kansas retirement money like I’d planned, so I’ll be continuing to pay on credit cards until probably November, since they say it takes 4-6 weeks to even get your money after you apply. Thank goodness my new job salary should begin in August.
Only got two books finished this week.
I didn’t buy any, well, I did buy one, but it hasn’t arrived yet, so I’ll save it to share when it makes it to my house. Just so you know, Amazon takes too long these days to get books to you!
ARCs for Review:
E-galleys for review:
I bought the first one with my Audible credit for this month. Technically the last one I got last month with the Audiobook Magazine summer program of Sync – free ebooks for teens. That’s how I got the two in the middle, but they were this week’s choices.
The first book was my Amazon First Read pick for July.
What I’m Binge Watching:
This past week I started rewatching Cobra Kai, as well as Supernatural from the very beginning. I don’t know if I’ve watched the first season since it actually first aired! Boy do Sam and Dean look soooooo young! It is looking like our Planet Comicon in August is going to have a ton of actors from Supernatural, the biggest one so far is Misha Collins, who would totally be someone I’d pay to go see and get a picture with. But with not getting the money yet from my retirement, I don’t know that I’ll be able to afford it. 🙁 However, if you’re into romance books, you’ve probably heard all the big to-do about the new show on Netflix called Sex/Life based on the book series 44 Chapters About 4 Men by B.B. Easton. Which after watching the first two episodes I decided to go ahead and order the book, or I guess the prequel/first book in the series? I already owned a digital copy of it, but I wanted a physical copy so I can maybe meet the author at Book Bonanza next summer. Now, a warning, this show is extremely sexual! Episode 3 had a major whoa moment that everyone is really talking about.
