#todayinsixwords: too tired to read much today

I skipped the challenge because my brain was fried. Staying up late the night before reading, when I have to work the next day, isn’t always a great idea. No reading over lunch because I had a hair appointment, and was too tired to get very far in my book last night. But the good new is that I started Hero and am completely in love with it already. I’m looking forward to picking it back up today. Bad news is my sweet daughter randomly woke up at 2 AM this morning, and I’m feeling super sleepy, now. I see an early bedtime in my future and not much reading tonight.

#todayinsixwords: holy sob fest – very sad book!

I stayed up way later than I should have last night finishing this book, but once it got to a certain point, I just couldn’t put it down. I have not cried so much reading a book in a very long time. Now, where’s the coffee.

Hope everyone had a fun first day of BOB!



I decided to participate in one of today’s challenges hosted by Caught Read Handed. A bookshelf scavenger hunt! You had to post at least 4 on the list. And I apologize for the fuzzy pictures – I was uber tired this morning while I was taking them.

Find a book with the following criteria on a bookshelf:

2. Find a book with the color yellow on it – Entwined with You


3. Find an author’s name with the letter “S” in it – Sylvain Reynard


4. Find a book with a female protagonist – Goodnight June

goodnight june

7. Find a book with a face on it (photograph or illustrated) – Hopeless


Bonus: Find something on your shelf that isn’t a book. – my collection of FRIENDS DVD’s.
