The Weekly Recap (26): Back to Business

Sunday, January 6, 2019

Hi guys!

I hope you all have been doing well. I missed chatting with you guys while I was on hiatus. I hope everyone's holiday season went well and you all got to spend time with your loved ones. I had the month off of school but for the most part, I still went in for work. I did get the weeks of Christmas and New Year's off, however, which I was grateful for. I needed the mental break. I start a new term on Monday and I'm feeling a little nervous because my workload seems a bit overwhelming. I just need to learn to juggle things but it's already stressing me out.

I didn't do much during my break, mostly just relaxed, watched TV and read very few books. I also, unfortunately, have not been feeling the best. My right hand has been swollen for a few weeks. I thought maybe something had bitten me, but the swelling has not gone down. I went to the clinic on Wednesday and got some blood tests and an x-ray. I don't get to see my doctor until next Wednesday though so I am just sitting here waiting to figure out what's going on. :( My doctor mentioned arthritis, but I am really hoping that's not it.

Let's get to my reading updates!
Week In Reading
38112305 99 Percent Mine Close to the Bone (Widow's Island, #1)  

These are the books I've read this year (ha!). I decided to begin my year with a re-read of a Lauren Layne book. I enjoyed it just as I imagined I would. I hated 99 Percent Mine. It was a strange book that wasn't particularly well-written. I also picked up Close to the Bone as I had seen Kim at Caffeinated Reviewer had good things to say about it and I enjoyed it. Ayesha at Last is my favorite book this week and probably this whole month. I loved every word of it and I really hope you all will add to your TBRs. It's not a romance with steamy scenes or anything, but the romance was so wholesome and soft. I loved all the characters too. Finally, I read The Deceivers from Kristen Simmons and enjoyed the book as well!
