Yikes, y’all, school starts in two days! Even though everything is in order, I feel so unprepared. I think it’s because we haven’t really broken in our new school-year routine yet. Ha! That’s going to be a shock to The Boy’s system, that’s for sure. Although he has been going to bed and getting up earlier and earlier over the last week, so hopefully come Tuesday morning he won’t be too out of whack. I just don’t know what I’m going to do with myself once he goes back to school – all that quiet, free, uninterrupted time. Any suggestions? I was thinking about doing the happy dance, first and foremost. And then taking a nap. Then I suppose it will be time for me to flesh out a new school-year routine for myself, as well. And then, well, I suppose it will be time to actually get to work. Hey, maybe I’ll get a little bit more reading done now… Here’s what I got up to this week:

Upcoming reviews for the week of
Trapeze, about a British female spy in Nazi-occupied France during WWII, was a little bit more dry than I’d hoped – still a lot of good content, just not as full of life as I’d hoped. Compound Fractures is part of a series I used to read for years and years, and stopped a few years back for some reason or another. It is the final book of the series and it was great! Heather Gudenkauf did not let me down with One Breath Away – she’s three for three so far. Mudbound was a slow, sad, depressing read – an excellent one, just not the happiest of tales. I’m really excited about reading The Girl You Left Behind by Jojo Moyes – it’s been great so far and I’m sure it will just keep getting better! Until next time folks, happy reading!
