<— HAPPY MONDAY and what a happy day it is!!! A few EXTRA exciting new releases that snuck in early (like that one there to the left). 😉 Yep. You guessed it. It’s what I’m going to read next! But first… tell me about your weekend. Let’s play “Three Things…” – I’ll start!
1.) I’m also reading a psych-thriller (an ARC) called Cross Her Heart: A Novel (releasing in a week or two), I’m 50% in, and I have NO clue what’s going on. LOL!!! That’s okay… I like it like that! This could go anywhere and I hear the twist is jaw-dropping. Oh how I hope!!!
2.) I’m lonely. 😉 My family is gone, and the house is so quiet. It’s peaceful, sure, back to my comfortable routine – and I’m a routine girl for sure, but… I’m lonely.
3.) I want a re-do of the entire last week (from August 11th to the 17th), only because it was so awesome and I want to do it all over again.
