Mask of Shadows by [Miller, Linsey]  Perfect for fantasy fans of Sarah J. Maas and Leigh Bardugo, the first book in this new duology features a compelling gender fluid main character, impressive world building, and fast-paced action.  YA I’m trying to dip my toe in! Released on August 29th!

I had decided to try at least 2 YA books One of them which I had seen reviewed a lot by YA reviewers I got about 15% into and just said NO! Jeez, I don’t want to have to wonder how to pronounce every name and city. I have Game of Thrones for that. This one I like because of the main character, but it is definitely not my genre! Or maybe it’s that I’m not a Science Fiction/Dystopian/Fantasy fan. But at least I gave it a shot!

In The End We All Become Stories..

1492460765558

Thank you for the pity party support yesterday. Turns out they gave me the wrong date and time, so I didn’t have to go to the meeting until next week.

Then my Bestest Friend, OU Boy, took me for some retail therapy. Turns out I just needed a new swimsuit, running shoes and a hat. Who Knew?

I have a ton of reading to do over the next few days, plus finishing up a Human Resource Manual so I got up super early, I’m talking like 6 a.m. and did 6 loads of laundry and folded it and put it away. I have dinner in the crock pot. I’ve made two pitchers of Tea. One good old sweet tea and iced Tazo Sweet Orange. And the biggest thing of all…I ran a mile. I know that doesn’t sound like much, but when you have wonky vision from the corneal transplant still  and wear a cup over one eye, it was a lot. I may have looked like a drunk, since I do still have the depth perception and balance issues, but it felt good. I’ll be back to 5 miles in no time I’m sure.

Back to The Wilding Sisters….ooooh good!  What’s your story today?

What Are You Reading This Month?

These are some of the reads from Netgalley I’m reading as well as about 15 hard copies and 2 Beta reads. So my June is pretty full! I really am in need of some recommendations for that 8 to 10 age group of girls. Nothing sexual, just some good series reads.

                        

      

  

So what are you all reading this month? Any good recommendations for me?

xx Happy Reading!   Patricia
