Happy May everyone! It's hard to believe we're in the fifth month of the year already. Last week was a blur to me, but it was a wonderful week. I had visits from two special people in my life. One was my cousin I hadn't seen in over a year. We spent the whole day together, starting with breakfast at our favorite coffeehouse then we hit the stores, including the new DSW store where I got the coolest wedged-heeled sandals! On Thursday I spent some time with my high school best friend who I hadn't seen in fifteen years! She lives in Texas and was in Orlando on business. Luckily, she was able to sneak away and drive to Ocala for a few hours to see me. We had a wonderful time catching up with each other. This past week was one of the best I've had in a while.
Although i had a lot going on, I was still able to have a good book week too. I started off on Monday with my review of HUSH by Kate White. I also participated in Teaser Tuesday, with a sneak peek at my current read ON FOLLY BEACH by Karen White. And on Wednesday I spotlighted a yet-to-be-released book I'm really anxious to read on 'Waiting On' Wednesday. This new book has magical realism elements that I love that reminds me of Sarah Addison Allen's books.
I also received an interesting ARC in the mail this week. It's called THE ETERNAL ONES by Kirstin Miller. This book involves reincarnation and past lives. I'm anxious to see what it's all about.
I'm looking forward to a much calmer week ahead and I plan to finish ON FOLLY BEACH. What a great book to read in the Spring! I'm noticing some differences in her writing from her Tradd Street books, which I really love. But I'll talk more about that once I finish the book.
For now, I'm off to go make an iced coffee and grab my book. The warm weather has definitely arrived so I may have to break down and turn the A/C on today. It is supposed to be in the 90's again. I hope you have a relaxing Sunday and that you get a chance to spend some quality time with your current book.
