In Today's Edition - Personal Update / Stacking the Shelves / Blast from the Past
(Yes, we sold pretty much everything. Took 2 suitcases each and our cat Charlie. Althought I do have a few things in storage - like books! - that I can't get rid of. lol)
We've been here two months now, and if you enjoy travelogues, I've written 5 blog posts detailing the why and how and what and posted them on my wife's website: Boom Travel & Wellness. (Link is to last update which include links to all the other posts.)
For those who want to skip the details, here's a picture from our rooftop terrace with an ocean view. We are settling in, and most importantly, our 19 yo Charlie is adjusting to the heat and humidity!Stacking the Shelves:
I sometimes go on a search for a new-to-me writer in various genres that I get a hankering for. Recently, I was on the lookout for some crime or espionage and came across a guy named Thomas Sewell who writes military thrillers. Close enough! I like this genre even though I've never served in the military.
|New to me author, Thomas Sewell's military thrillers.
Haven't read them yet, but will probably start with the Sam Harper book (Ranger Selection) as it's a prequel story to, according to Goodreads, three books in the series. Do any of you like military thrillers?
As for what I've read and #amreading, see this past Monday's Book Date Monday #6. I'm tyiing to number them so I can easily reference my previous entries. So far, I'm far from consistent!
Blast from the Past:
I was a pretty avid book blogger about 15 years ago. When I was searching for my Sunday Roundup posts so I could start numbering them, I came across one of my very first roundups - from 2007!
It's a TBR roundup. And glancing over the list, I'm embarrassed to say that I have not in the last 15 years gotten to them all yet! LOL I'll come back and update this post with how many of those books I have actually read. (Update: See comments below. I read 8 of the 13, so not bad, lol.)
But for now, happy reading! Tell me what's on your shelf recently, currently, or for the future.
Oh! And PS - What I'm Writing...
My latest cozy adventure (maybe mystery? lol) goes live on September 1st. It's called Ma Tutt's Secret Spice. If you are a cozy reviewer and want a free ARC, let me know! Working on the next book in the series now, Ma Tutt's Christmas Cookies (will pubish by mid-October, I hope!).
