The Sunday Salon: Rough Week
Hello Sunday Saloners! Its been one of those crazy weeks for me. As I mentioned last month I adopted a kitten (Jax) and he now rules my life! But I don't mind. I made the big decision to have him de-clawed this past week and its killing me!! I feel horrible about it. He came home from the kitty hospital yesterday and I've been loving on him ever since. (You guessed right, I don't have children) He seems to be doing better than me, thankfully. But even with the anxiety, I did have an eventful book week...
Since finishing THE ART OF RACING IN THE RAIN last week,(click here for review), I picked up THE YEAR OF MAGICAL THINKING by Joan Didion that I'd started a while ago and decided to finish for once and for all. Looking back, I'd change that decision if I could. Explanation here. I got a package mid-week of ARC's and included was JUST WHO WILL YOU BE? by Maria Shriver. What an inspirational little book! Click here to read my thoughts on the book. While I wait for the rest of the ARC's to arrive, I am reading A THOUSAND SPLENDID SUNS. I have been looking at this book on my table for so long and finally am getting the chance to read it. I just know its going to be fabulous! I was surprised to see that Meg Waite Clayton, author of the upcoming THE WEDNESDAY SISTERS had visited my blog and left a nice comment. At first, I didn't realize who it was! Then I said, 'Whoa!" I'm really looking forward to reading her book when it comes out. Its actually listed on my blog as my top TBR! I didn't get an advanced copy to review, but I'll make sure I get mine from the bookstore as soon as it becomes available!
Well its time to give Jax his antibiotic, so I'll say good-bye and happy reading! See you next Sunday at the Salon!
