What are you currently reading? What did you recently finish reading? What do you think you’ll read next?
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 needto 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 7reviews. 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!!

This Week’s Selection:
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.
