The Weekly Recap (15): Dental Appointments, Friend Dates & Books

Saturday, September 1, 2018

Hi everyone!

Happy first day of September! I hope you guys are doing well! My week was decent. I had a few coffee dates with some friends, then a dental appointment in the middle of the week. I have a bad case of gingivitis and the dentist always yells at me for not taking care of my teeth and gums properly. This past year though I've made more of an effort to look after my teeth and it paid off. He surprisingly didn't have anything to say about my teeth at my cleaning!

I also went to lunch with a friend I hadn't seen in 3 years! It was fun to catch up. I'm officially done with my binge-watch of Drop Dead Diva. I really enjoyed the show, overall, but that last season was a bit of a mess. I need a new show to watch now so I'm taking recommendations for drama, comedies or crime shows. None of the superhero stuff, please! In the meantime, I'll be rewatching Brooklyn Nine-Nine.

Let's get to my reading updates!
Week In Reading
Hot Winter Nights (Heartbreaker Bay, #6) A Study in Scarlet Women (Lady Sherlock, #1) One Night Wife (The Confidence Game #1) The Darkest Star Badly Done, Emma Lee (Riches to Romance #3) Kill the Queen (Crown of Shards, #1) 

I've had a mixed-bag sort of reading week. I enjoyed some of these, and some were just so-so. I'm sad that Hot Winter Nights didn't impress me as much as the others in the series. I'll still recommend the book, but it was nowhere near as excellent as the previous books. I FINALLY got around to reading A Study in Scarlet Women and I absolutely loved it! I immediately downloaded the second book from my library's Overdrive (hooray for no waiting lists!)! I then went ahead and read One Night Wife, which I had set aside earlier this year, and adored it too! I'm glad I gave it a second try. I was in the mood for an old-school YA and The Darkest Star seemed to fit the bill. It was a fun read for me though if you've read JLA you know that all her characters sound the same. Badly Done, Emma Lee sounded like a fun book about a rich socialite finding out what the real world is like, but I disliked the main character. I found her jokes to be unfunny and honestly, out of line. There just some things you don't joke about. I also read Kill the Queen, which turned out to be a fun fantasy romance. I'm excited for more of these characters! Her Festive Flirtation was a cute read. Can you guys believe that we're already seeing holiday romances???
