Facing The Week Ahead
Because of the intensity of the upcoming week, I doubt I'll be able to fit in much more than one book or novella, but we'll see how things roll. As a motivator, I ended up buying a few books I had planned on one day reading. Sort of a buy-now/read as an "I survived the first month!" celebration. Here's what I ordered:
Julia Quinn's When He Was Wicked and It's in His Kiss
I love the Bridgerton series. I have On the Way to the Wedding sitting on my bookshelf, but I'm refusing to read the books out of order. I know it doesn't really make a difference since they're stand alone novels, but I've read them in order up until now and I would hate to break the pattern.
It's her first novel and I heard it was awful. So I had to read it. I've been told several times I might enjoy it for the sheer horror of it.
I've never read Cheryl St. John but I know a lot of people really like her. And I really like the Harlequin Historicals line, so this seemed like a good place to start.
Finally, I redesigned the blog! It had a "makeunder" I guess. Since I have zero capacity for HTML/CSS, I tried to pick a blogger template I thought I could work with in the future, and I'm pretty happy with the result.
