*I’ve posted a review Trace of Evil and The Look-Alike. Click on the titles for those full reviews. I am not going to post a full review of His Bloody Project, but for those interested, I did not enjoy that book. I found that the story dragged on and on. Also, I have a tough stomach for crime descriptions, but this book had pretty intense descriptions that made me a bit sick. Plus, I have to note that this book also includes violence, sexual assault, and suicide on top of the brutal murders. It just wasn’t a good read for me.*

Happy New Year, everyone! I just returned from an amazing trip to New York City! I packed a lot of fun in that trip but unfortunately did not get to read much. However, I  managed to read 125 books in 2019, which I have never managed before. I think the ability to listen to audiobooks while at work has allowed me read a bit more.

The holiday season is in full swing! I have not had much time to read but occasionally listen to audiobooks while I am doing household chores in preparation for family that will be coming for a visit in the next couple days. I also listened a bit while wrapping a ton of gifts. It is all I can do to keep up with my Dune readalong with my friend. I’m hoping to at least have one day over the holidays where I can wrap myself in a blanket, a hot chocolate and read for a bit.

Is anyone else wondering how it can possibly be almost Thanksgiving already??!! I’ve mostly been audiobooking, while I clean my house and prepare for the company that is arriving from out of town soon. Both my family and my husband’s family are coming for Thanksgiving dinner, so it will and crazy next week and a half. Anyone have any book recommendations on how to deal with family? I would appreciate some humorous books if possible. LOL

Last night, I met up with my friend to discuss Book One of Dune. I really am enjoying reading books piece by piece and discussing each section. My friend and I also use this as a great excuse to get together once a month, even during the busy times. Those times tend to be the best times to get together as a way to unwind and focus on something else.

Fair Play by Eve Rodsky – audiobook = ♦
Digital Minimalism by Cal Newport – audiobook = ♦ ♦ ♦ ½

I actually did not make it through Fair Play, hence the 1-star rating. I was interested in reading about how couples balance their high-stress jobs, housework, and still have time for each other. This book seemed to cater more toward households with kids, which is fine, but not really relevant to me. Most of what I read seemed to really attack men, that the women were doing all the child care and household responsibilities. Seems like some items mentioned in the book should have been discussed among the couples before they decided to have children. Again, not really the book for me I guess. If anything, I started to appreciate the communication I have with my significant other. I was just hoping this book would share good tips on time management. It was a let down for me.

I will have a review of Digital Minimalism posted soon!

I spent last week into this week reorganizing my bookshelves. It turned into a much bigger project than expected, but now I can easily access all books that I haven’t read yet and have recorded all of them into my book catalog app, so I will always know what books I own. I would like to avoid owning duplicates in the future. We shall see how it pans out. For now I think the shelves look good. 🙂

Don’t be fooled by the huge list of books. I just haven’t participated in WWW for the last few weeks. I’ve been working very long hours and can’t wait until it slows down a bit for the holidays, and I can get back to discussing books!

As of Monday, I officially completed my Goodreads challenge for the year. I couldn’t be happier! I am incredibly amazed that I have read that many books this year and it is only October.
