Manic Monday - June 27

Reading/Reviewing Progress

I spent most of my reading time this week on Hit List...and I'm so glad I did. I was beginning to think Laurell K. Hamilton was losing her steam...actual storyline steam anyway...but I'm happy to report that the story has been revived...:)

Next up for me is the 17th installment of the Stephanie Plum series, which Amazon shipped to me automatically on the 21st when it was published.  Unfortunately for me I forgot I haven't read 15 or 16 yet :/  How in the world I managed to stop at 14 and wait on 17, I'll never know.  The good news is that Stephanie Plum's are usually fast reads so I hope I finish all three this week.

FedEx arrived this morning with 3 distractions...Season 1 of The Dog Whisperer, Be the Pack Leader by Cesar Milan and The Art of Raising a Puppy by The Monks of New Skete. I like distractions like these though :)

The review backlog still exists but I've started taking notes again in my little journal about the books I'm currently reading so I won't feel like I can't keep reading while I'm working on reviews.  Does that make sense?  The United States of Arugula review is finally going up this week; it originally was scheduled for last week but that was before I started Furry Friday, which I'm still very excited about :)

This Week's Posting Schedule

Monday - Manic Monday

Tuesday - Top Ten Bookish Websites

Wednesday - Almost Wordless Wednesday

Thursday - Book Review -The United States of Arugula

Friday - Furry Friday - "Hermione's story"

Saturday - Saturday Snapshots - "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof"

Sunday - Weekend Cooking- one of the recipes listed in this week's menu :)

Since I'll be gone for a few days, for the first time I'm gonna try the delayed posting thingie on Blogger...I won't have internet access where I'm going so I won't know if it works until I get back...keeping my fingers crossed :)


Wednesday - steak and chicken kabobs, fruit salad and red velvet cupcakes (Youth Supper at our house)

Friday, Saturday, Sunday - I'm going to the beach!! Seafood!

Since I hummed this all day last Monday and am already humming this morning as I type this post, here's a blast from the past. :)


  1. It sounds like you have a full week ahead and have been reading some great things as well. I look forward to your upcoming posts and hope that you get all those Stephanie Plum books finished in good time!

  2. It sounds like you are completely organized this summer! Have fun at the beach. We just left the beach.
