What I’ve been up to:
It’s been a very quiet week this week. My son just accepted a new job in Montana, specifically, “the middle of nowhere” Montana. It’s in a very remote part of the state, so I’m a bit worried that he’ll be lonely or bored. He claims that as long as he has good internet, he’ll be fine.
My son’s new job is what he’s been wanting to do. He’ll work as a soil scientist, and I’m very proud of him. It’s a job with the Federal Government, so it will be a month or so before he’ll have to move up there. And I’m sure my husband and I will have to haul a bunch of his stuff up there too.
Last week I read:
I read a LOT this week, I don’t normally read this much, but I didn’t have much else going on and I wanted to try to get ahead a bit. Once again, they were all excellent books. My favorite book was The Belle of Belgrave Square.
I also finally finished the Practical Magic series and I’ll be posting my review for the series later this month (spoiler alert: I loved them all!)
Next week I hope to get to:

Have you read any of these books? What are you hoping to read this next week? What have you been up to last week? Comment below!
I love that your son found a job doing something he loves. I’m sure he’ll make some good friends to hang out with. Congratulations to him! 👏👏👏
Congratulations to your soon on his new job! I hope it will be all he hopes it will be. All your recent reads sound so good! I have read a couple of the Practical Magic books and need to get to the rest. I adore Alice Hoffman’s writing. I hope you have a great week!
Congrats to your son for finding a job in his field. Hopefully the remote location won’t be too hard to adjust to. You really did read a lot last week! Nice way to finish out the month. 🙂
Thank you, Tanya!
Good luck to your son and his new job. It’s great that he found something he actually likes.
Thank you, he’s pretty excited!
Congrats to your son! Finding a job, especially one you want to do, seems very tough these days. I hope he fares well in the remote location. I know I’d get bored, lonely, and depressed even with good Internet. I’m glad to know he’s not the same way. 😀
Thank you, Jenni! kids these days seem to do better alone with all their electronics. We’ll see.
Congratulations to your son on getting the job he wants. That can be so key in happiness.
It is exciting. Thank you, Linda.
I hope your son enjoys Montana. It’s supposed to be beautiful there. You got some great reading in. I just know you’re going to love Hahn’s book.
I just finished Built to Last and really did enjoy it! It was better than I expected.
Congrats to your son on the job! Hubby and I know all about the moving. We’ve moved one or both of our sons every summer for the past nine years (college, jobs, etc.) Hope he enjoys Montana.
Wow, that’s a lot of moving! I am excited for him. I don’t mind helping him move, I want to see where he’ll be living.
That’s so great about your son’s job! It sounds perfect though if it’s just him on his own I’d be a bit worried about him getting bored too. Have a wonderful week and enjoy your reading!
Thank you, Katherine!
Montana is such a beautiful state, but I think it’s pretty cold in the winter which is just around the corner. Hope your son enjoys his new job. I got an invite to read Built to Last and you just reminded me to snatch it up.
I just started Built to Last, so far, so good.
Wow you were able to read a lot! I’m really curious about Built To Last… Congratulations to your son!
Thank you, Yvonne.
Soil scientist sounds like an interesting job. Hope he enjoys it!
Thank you, Nicole. I hope he loves it too.
Good luck to your son. What a wonderful opportunity! I hope he loves it.
I hope so too, Tessa! Have a great week!
I’ve heard Montana is beautiful. I bet you’ll be visiting regularly. I am loving Belle of Belgrave Square too.
I will visit there often. I love Montana, it’s so pretty.
Wow, that was a great week of reading! How old is your son? I hope that Montana is good for him!!
My son is 25 years old. I hope it’s good for him too! Thanks so much, Cindy
Excellent news about your son Wendy. Good for him. A new place to go camping!! Have a wonderful week and happy reading!!🤗📚💗
Yes! I’m already making plans to go visit and go camping!
That’s awesome about your son! I hope he loves it. 🙂
Thank you, Greg, I hope so too.
Congrats to your son! Honestly I wish I lived in the middle of nowhere, I don’t like people, lol. But that’s awesome, it’s always great to get your dream job. Those look like great books, Dark Whisper has a stunning cover.

Thank you, Ash!
That’s exciting about your son. Does he like the outdoors? That could be another aspect of Montana life maybe hiking, or skiing. I haven’t read any of those books. I’m glad you enjoyed them.
Yes, he’s very outdoorsy and loves to hike and camp. He’ll be about and hour and a half from Glacier National Park.
I have not read any of those, but I see a couple on my TBR! I need a week where I get lots of reading done. I haven’t been great since school has been back in session. I do love Montana, good luck to your son! Have a great week!
Thank you, Lisa.
A soil scientist? Now what exactly do they do? I guess agricultural reasons? Sounds like a story can come from that….
I bought The Book of Magic on Wednesday and can’t wait to start reading AND to see your review. I love love love that series and Alice Hoffman.
Have a wonderful week Wendy and I also need a week where I just read A LOT and catch up a bit.
Lots of Love,
I think it’s to help the local farmers and rancher, but i”m not sure. Have a wonderful week too!
Congratulations to your son on getting his new job! I hope he enjoys it. I look forward to reading several of these books Wendy including Built to Last and The Christmas Spirit. Have a wonderful week ahead.
I just started The Christmas Spirit and it’s good so far.
Congrats to your son! I enjoy Mimi Matthews’ books as well, and Godmersham Park is on my kindle for a future read.
I hope we enjoy Godmersham Park.
Glad you loved The Belle of Belgrave Square…I did too 🙂 Hope the job works out for your son.
Thank you, Cathy
Soil scientist is so cool, I am sure he will be fine there and will carve out a life for himself. And I can vouch that ask long as there is internet, most of us millennials are fine 😀
Thank you! I think you’re right, he sure knows how to communicate with his friends that way.
A great reading week & I hope your son’s new job works out well, have a great week 💕
Thank you, Jenny!
Fabulous reading month! Belle of Belgrave was enjoyable! Godmersham Park was interesting but sooooo slow!
Thanks for the tip on Godmersham Park. I’ll make sure I am in the right mindset and take it slowly.
