What I’ve been up to:

My husband and I went to Phoenix earlier in the week for a doctor’s appointment. It’s only a 2.5-hour drive, but we usually spend the night and visit with my sister-in-law. We also go shopping and eat out. It was a fun couple of days. It was in the 80s down in Phoenix, and the 60s up here in Flagstaff.

Last week I read:

It was a good week for audiobooks, I listened to three audiobooks. My favorite book of the week was It Starts With Us. Next was Ricochet, which is part of the Addicted series by Krista Ritchie and Becca Ritchie, I enjoyed continuing the series. All the other books were very good too.

Next week I hope to get to:

  1. That’s quite a temperature difference! All of your upcoming books look good but the Viola Shipman is especially calling my name. I hope you’re having a great week!

    I have Heart of the Sun Warrior to read too. I’m hoping to be able to read it before publication date but my books seem to be piling up at the moment 😃
    We have currently lost all our lovely Autumn sunshine and seem to be getting all of the rain that we didn’t get over the Summer.

  3. What a difference in temps. I love it when the weather turns a little cooler, and fall is my favorite time of year. Awesome week of reading, Wendy – hope you have another one!

  4. Wow you had a great week of reading! We lived in Vegas for a few years and visited Phoenix multiple times – it was a 3-4 hour drive I think. Good change of pace. Have a great week.
    Thanks for the visit.

  5. That’s a huge difference in temps for areas that really aren’t that far apart. Glad you had a great time! Turning doctor’s appointments into mini vacations is never a bad idea. Hope you have a great week!

  6. Fraterfest ends tonight, so then I will start doing some planning for Christmas reads. Guess where I’ll stop first for some inspiration… LOL!!

    Glad to hear you had a fun trip, I hope the new week will be filled with fun and good books as well.

    Lots of Love!

  7. Wow, you finished a lot of audiobooks this week.

    I’ve been on the same one for 10 days and am struggling to finish it before it’s due back at the library. LOL.

    • Some audiobooks take me weeks to finish and others I can finish quickly. It all depends on what’s going on in my life, and how good the audiobook is.

  8. A great week Wendy! It’s so nice to get away even if it is just a few days. I just finished Home Sweet Christmas and have several of the books mentioned here on my TBR to read over the next few weeks. Have a wonderful week ahead!

  9. Sounds like our weather in FL! It was in the 80s at the beginning of the week and then on Wednesday, a cool front came through and we went down in the 60s. It’s been warmer yesterday and today. I love the cover on Heart of the Sun Warrior! Happy reading!

    • We stay in a hotel in Phoenix as it’s only one night. I prefer the camper as my bed is so comfortable, but it’s a hassle to hook up and park for only one night.

  10. Honestly my reading has been all over the place recently! I am hoping to read a fun middle grade a young friend lent me and wanted me to read, and I guess I’ll just pick up whatever I’m in the mood for! Good to hear you’ve been reading some good books! I am not a huge fan of audiobooks – I get distracted too easily, but my sister listens to them on repeat, and at night I can hear it coming from her room and sometimes listen in too so I guess I get snippets of stories that way! I should probably give them another chance!

    Happy reading for this next week, and I truly can’t thank you enough for all the support you’ve shown my blog. It means so much and I’m sorry that I don’t get round to commenting on here as much as I should – balancing school and blogging is a challenge!


    • I like audiobooks when I drive, or do mundane tasks like housework or mowing the lawn. It’s hard for me to just sit and listen to an audiobook.

  11. Looks like a great week of reading 🙂 Do you ever read any books you don’t like (truly curious!), if so, do you talk about them here? Have a great day!

    • I have a pretty high tolerance for books. I almost always find something to like in a book. And when I don’t like a book at all, I won’t review it here, I’ll just make a note on NetGalley if it’s an ARC, or just won’t review it at all if it’s not an ARC. I know that bad reviews can be helpful to other readers, and I appreciate others who write them, but I just can’t.
