Summer Vacation 2017 Is Here!

I didn't have to go in to work today, and the kids have a half day of school (they are usually home by 12pm & 1pm). 

So how do I spend my first day of summer vacation? By cleaning the house for three hours this morning. I am wiped out!

Off to find some lunch..... and hopefully my motivation, lol!

This post is all about BOOKS, my friends. I've finally been on a reading kick!! Summer will do that, haha!!

I joined my library's summer reading challenge. All I have to do is read 5 books from June 1 - September 1 and log them in. Easy peazy lemon squeezy!

My library got up with the times and updated their online borrowing of digital books. It's much easier to navigate and I can borrow books through Kindle app (or Overdrive, which I have but don't prefer to use).  I'm on the wait list for a few there though.....

I borrowed my first audio book, Six of Crows, from my library. I can only listen to it on my way to work and on my way back home, aka when I am alone in the car and can hear haha! The book is just okay so far. I like the voice of the people speaking, but I feel like one should be just a narrator, one should be one character and one person another.... ya know. It's not set up that way, and sometimes I forget who is speaking lol.

I joined Book of The Month Club back in May. I joined because if you signed up at that time you got Into The Water by Paula Hawkins for free. So far, I am not impressed with the book selections. Yes, I could of just delayed my orders.... but I chose to just get the books and let the subscription run out. It's a three month subscription, so it ends after my July book arrives.
P.S. I really liked The Girl On The Train so that's why I signed up. I read 82 pages and cannot get in to it!!! I also have Since We Fell and The Sisters Chase in my possession.

I just finished I Belong To You by Lisa Renee Jones. Totally wasn't feeling it, but it was the last book in a series I started forever ago. It's in the erotica genre, but it wasn't really sexy enough..... I've read better, honestly.

I am currently reading (Confessions #2) The Private School Murders by James Patterson. I was on the fence with the first one, but I started the series so I gotta finish it up. That's how I do!

Of course, come follow me on GoodReads.... I use it pretty frequently.

One last thing.... I am always taking book recommends. What book has caught your attention lately? Share it with me. My virtual book shelf is NEVER full!
