Once again I’ll be linking this up with the Sunday Post (hosted by Caffeinated Book Reviewer).
Oh my gosh. This week with all the back to school meetings and all the teachers back and all the new stuff I found out was going to be a part of my new job that I didn’t know, crazy!!!! And it just seemed to add up to more and more all being dropped on me. By Thursday night, I was a little, no make that a lot overwhelmed. I was nervous about going to a social event our administration planned for us on Friday night, my introvert side, as well as the exhaustion from the week, especially Friday’s craziness, made me consider not going. I ended up going for a few hours, and it was okay. It was a neat place they had rented out called Arcade Alley and we got to play video games, including pinball machines and skee-ball for free as much as we wanted. We got free non-alcoholic beverages and some small snacky foods, but I did go ahead and purchase myself an alcoholic beverage when I got there. Friday was just hell really. Between finding out this past week that I had to be in charge of checking out laptops to every student this year, but they weren’t organized or ready to go, so we had to do that, and then having to enroll the 60 students into virtual learning that we have, I was a bit frazzled. Oh yeah, and the air conditioning in the back portion of the library, where we were working on getting the laptops ready, had quit working at the end of last week. It is supposedly going to be a little while before it is fixed too, because all three of the units that cover that area and the hallways adjacent have to be replaced. Also my library assistant was out on Friday because her son was having surgery. And Friday morning we had a special day for just the freshmen to come in and get to know the building a little before school officially starts on Monday. So yeah, I haven’t even been through the first week of school yet, but I’m exhausted and feeling this meme.
The first book was kind of long and took me a little while to get through because of all the complexity to the story. The second one was a quick fun read, like all of Hart’s books tend to be. The third one was a hilarious audiobook that had me laughing out loud in my car so much, and wishing that I could just find a guy to have fun texting conversations with even if it went nowhere. And finally the second book in the Adair Family series by Samantha Young was so good! It took several days to get it read, thanks to the crazy busy week I had. But then Saturday morning I picked it up when I got up and then finished it, which included some crying! Look for the review for this one on Monday.
I didn’t buy any this week, however I did get two books that I’d won from Facebook giveaways by authors in the mail. Here are the Instagram pictures I did with them.

What I’m Watching:
Well, didn’t have a lot of time for tv this week. I had to stay at school till almost 8 pm on Tuesday for a back to school night. Then Wednesday night I had to do a Zoom meeting for the virtual learning that I’ll be kind of overseeing for my high school. But I am still hooked on Cruel Summer.
And I’m still enjoying the little single episode American Horror Stories.
