This is my first Sunday Salon post in quite awhile and it feels good to be back. I've been a bit off track in recent months but now that my life is getting itself back under control, I'm hoping things will be returning to normal. As a few of you know, I lost my job a year ago and to make the situation more complicated, I have a degenerative retinal disease that has made me legally blind, which makes working a 'normal' job difficult. I had to come to terms with the fact that my professional life had come to an end. So after putting it off for months, I made the decision to go on Disability. It was hard for me to admit that it was time for me to take this next step but I did it and I do feel a sense of relief now. I'm still not used to being unemployed but I guess that will come in time. So nowadays I'm looking forward to reading and blogging regularly once again. I want to thank those loyal readers (y'all know who you are) who have stuck with me during this trying time when I just didn't have the right mindset to read or to blog. My blogging has been sporadic but now that I have those issues settled, I'm ready to get back to what I love and that is books!
I'm excited about this week because the book I'm starting today is by an author I've really enjoyed reading lately. ON FOLLY BEACH is Karen White's latest and it's due to be released on May 4th. I'm not part of the blog tour, but I'm sure you're going to be seeing this book everywhere in the next couple of weeks. I really enjoyed her Tradd Street books and I'm anxious to read a book that is separate from that series.
Also this week I'll be posting my review of HUSH by Kate White. This page-turning new thriller came out in early March and reminded me just how much I like a good murder mystery. So please stop back by for that review.
There are so many great books out there that I'm wanting to read this summer and I hope you'll come back and visit often to see what I'm reading next. As for today, I'm going to enjoy this lovely Spring weather we're having here in Central Florida (before it turns Africa-hot) and sit on my porch, sip my sweet tea and read ON FOLLY BEACH. I hope you're Sunday is going well and is filled with great reading too.
