WWW Wednesday: November 9th, 2022

WWW Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Sam at Taking on a World of Words.

The Three Ws are:

What are you currently reading?
What did you recently finish reading?
What do you think you’ll read next?


Personal:

Thursday: I did my civic duty and voted. Other than that, it was a pretty unremarkable day.

Friday: Again, another unremarkable day. Miss R had horseback riding. I gotta say, putting the horses out to pasture while it is dark out is interesting.

Saturday/Sunday: We had a chill weekend. Which meant we sat around and did nothing both days. We watched Enola Holmes (1 and 2) Saturday and Sunday. I’ve gotta say Henry Cavill as Sherlock was a good choice.

Monday: I ended up taking Snickers to the vet. She gets chronic UTIs and was exhibiting symptoms (not using a litterbox and overgrooming her privates were the main two). She got a shot of antibiotics, 4 days‘ worth of pain medication, and a suggestion to start using cat food that helps with UTIs. We also discussed what would happen going forward (if there is a next time). That would be an X-Ray of her bladder, with possible surgery.

Tuesday: I was back at the vet. But this time, to pick up a topical dewormer for all the cats. I noticed that Jesper had rice-like things on his butt over the weekend. I decided to take the wait-and-see route. I diagnosed it on Monday afternoon as a tapeworm (usually gotten by ingesting an infected flea), and I called Tuesday morning. The vet gave me Profender, which can be applied between the shoulder blades, and I applied it to all 5 cats. I spent Tuesday afternoon (after picking up Miss R from school) taking everything that Jesper has lain on and washing it in hot water. I also scrubbed down my couch and deep-cleaned my rug. Fun times.

The longest book I have read this week was a toss-up between Mostly Human 2 and Wicked Bleu. They both took me 2 days to read.

The shortest book I read this week was Shampoo & Conditioner. It took me about an hour to read.

I have started updating my older posts again. I am surprised how many books are no longer on Goodreads or Amazon. Guess I should make it a habit of cleaning up my old posts…lol.

I am ahead with my reading. I have finished all of the books I have scheduled for November (just need to write and schedule the reviews). So, I am giving myself a little break from reading just for reviews; I am reading for pleasure. My post this week will reflect that.

I am not so ahead with writing my reviews. I am not behind, by any means. but I do need to write 7 reviews. Those reviews need to be posted in the next two weeks. So, here comes crunch time.

So that’s the essential things for this past week. How was your week?

As always, let me know if you have read or are planning to read any of these books!!


What I Recently Finished Reading:

What I am currently reading:

On the run from an abusive relationship, Cooper Hale has gone to great lengths to protect her son. That includes giving up her dreams of a music career for a life of anonymity.

All of her best-laid plans crumble, however, when she meets rock star, Tate Watkins. After giving into her whims and indulging in a one-night stand, she finds cutting him loose isn’t so easy.

Her rash and impulsive decision snowballs into a series of events that sends her life spiraling out of control. Cooper can do little but hang on for the ride, and one wild ride it is.

Danger looms at every turn as her past returns to haunt her. With the man of her dreams and the career she has always wanted within her reach, she’ll need to survive if she’s to seize them.

**This book contains sexual situations, foul language, drugs, alcohol, impulsive decisions, and the frequent use of sarcasm.

What books I think I’ll read next:

In a land of strange beasts, haunted forests and fiery magic the Fire Mage is a legend no one believes in any more.Especially not Jena, an orphaned ex-slave who’s finally found a safe haven with her master and mentor, the Great Mage Thornal. When royal assassins murder Thornal while trying to steal his powerful Book of Spells, Jena vows revenge on the man responsible—Prince Lothar, the next king of Ignisia.
It’s a dangerous quest that will likely mean her life, but Jena has help in the form of her master’s familiar, an enormous raven, and also her own—completely forbidden—mage skills. If she can keep her secrets hidden, she might just get close enough to Lothar to obtain justice for Thornal’s death.
Meanwhile failed mage Nate is a salt collector in the notoriously dangerous volcano mines, using his unique ability to call demons to keep himself alive. He emerges from his latest run to find everyone at the outpost dead, and royal assassins waiting to finish him off. He barely escapes with his life, but his elation is short-lived—Prince Lothar is convinced Nate is a threat to his claim to the Flame Throne of Ignisia, and will stop at nothing to eliminate him.

When Nate and Jena meet, they’re literally heading in different directions. But destiny—and the prophecies of the last Fire Mage—throws them onto the same path. They must work together if they are to save the kingdom—and themselves—from the machinations of a ruthless royal prince.
Two unlikely heroes, one unscrupulous prince, and a swathe of dark and mysterious beasts—who will survive this encounter? 
Sara’s life is drastically changed the moment a convoy of horse-drawn caravans enters the quiet Reidenburgerstrasse in Germany, where she lives with the people she thinks are her parents. Sara doesn’t know that her parents found her in a basket on their doorstep thirteen years earlier. Neither does she know that she is a gypsy or that she is going to be the greatest sorceress who has ever lived. Soon Sara will discover a magical world she never knew existed and go on a journey that she knows will cost her dearly.
Trysten has a special bond with the dragons of Aerona. But will that bond be enough to save the dragons and the village when her father is crippled and his dragon mortally wounded?

All her life, Trysten has wished to follow in her father’s footsteps and lead the dragons of Aerona into battle, but the title of Dragoneer has always gone to a male heir since the beginning of history. As war approaches with the changing of the season, Trysten must prove to her father, the village and the other dragon riders that she is an able leader and a fierce warrior of legendary capabilities.

Fantasy fans will love this thrilling dragon ride! This coming of age story features strong women, hope, and a compelling story-telling style appropriate for most ages.
Nineteen-year-old Emily Díaz is lost, left to wander in a familiar landscape devoid of life.

Medicine is extending human life, giving scientists reason to believe that immortality will one day be a reality. Famine and poverty have been eradicated. World peace has been achieved.

She finds herself torn, both terrified and entranced by this mysterious force. She wants to run from it but is inexplicably drawn to it. She doesn’t know what it wants or why it only wants her, but as time marches on, her compulsion to face it begins to take precedence over her fear. Her determination to face the mysterious force sets her on the path toward an unexplored planet sixteen light-years away…where it waits for her…waits to answer the questions she has been asking…waits to show her what it has in store for her…waits to fulfill her destiny.
