My Monday Musings




I spent Sunday morning driving around my park taking pictures of squirrel bridges for my much anticipated Squirrel Fest post! It will break the internet! lol

Okay – so maybe it’s not all that anticipated but it will, most likely, make you laugh, so there’s that. I hope to have that up this week as well as a few more doggie themed book reviews for the last week of the #DDoS reading challenge.

You will also be happy to know that I did not get locked in anymore bathrooms over the weekend! And the one public restroom I did use had only ONE lock - as God intended lol

For now, Here’s my reading update.

Reading:


    

Dine with Me by Layla Rayne (for review)
Traitorous Toys (Cozy Corgi Mysteries #2) by Mildred Abbott (for the #DDoS challenge)

Read:


   

One Day to Fall by Therese Beharrie – 4 stars
Puppy Love (Forever Home #1) by Lucy Gilmore – review coming this week
The Right Swipe (Modern Love #1) by Alisha Rai – DNF review

Netgalley Approval:


American Love Story (Dreamers #3) by Adriana Herrera – One of my favorite series right – super excited to start this one!

Amazon Vine:














I received The Revolution of Birdie Randolph by Brandy Colbert, this super cute Wind Wind Took shoulder backback, and The Music of What Happens by Bill Konigsberg for review.


Reading Challenge:  I hit my 50 books read goal so I upped it to 80 and I’m moving along. I should hit it (& maybe even raise it again).

    1. I usually read about 150 books per year but I had to move cross country in March - that threw me totally out of my reading groove. I wasn't sure what I would be able to do this year. But I'm back on track and guessing it will be around 100

  12. Get that Goodreads challenge! I am sad you didn't like The Right Swipe. I liked it. I especially loved the hero. I thought the Puppy Love book was cute. Fun premise with the sisters and the dogs, and I was intrigued by the whole diabetes smelling puppy thing.

    1. I know! *cries* I had such a hard time with the heroine still being angry after knowing why he ghosted her. I was also listening to it and some romance just doesn't work for me on audio. I might switch to print and finish it.
