What you might have missed on my blog
So this week has been full of taking care of dad, men are so whimpy. 🙂 He had his surgery on Tuesday and everything went really well but he is just really sore. He can’t bend over so if he drops something I have to pick it up. I think he is milking the I can only lift ten pounds…lol. He is feeling a little better and he has a follow up on Wednesday to see how long he has to keep the binder on him (kind of like a huge wrap brace type thing). I have to drive him around and he is a front seat driver and so I can’t wait till he can drive again!!! I don’t like driving as is but I get nervous with passengers and especially ones that are like, it’s 35 through here, that’s close enough you can stop, here comes a car!!!!!! I was like shut up!
So nothing like doing some serious categorizing of a certain genre to know you got a series bookish problem that needs contained!! Not saying how many cozy series I have a going but it’s enough to make me stop and realize I can’t read every cozy series out there no matter how much I want. So below you will see all I got is cozies this week and I talk about a ban. 🙂 I have a crazy amount and I am talking CRAZY amount and they are all review series and I am behind on most of them so no more….oooh pretty, clicks. 🙁
I am doing a Halloween Bingo on booklikes so you will be seeing lots of spooky and well of course mysteries as the bingo is a mixture of both. 🙂 It goes from Sept. 1st to Oct. 31st so I am hoping to get a lot of my card blacked out but I probably won’t get the whole thing.
Have a great week!!

Books I have added
So after this week I have put myself on a new series cozy mystery ban! I took some time to make a list of all the cozy series I have going and OMG! I am behind on most of them so got to quick with the oooh cute..click…thing I got going on here. I must be strong!!! (I can get books in series I am already reading but NO new ones!!!) 🙂 🙁
- A Murder for the Books – New series! Seriously it was about books so I couldn’t help it…lol.
- A Cajun Christmas Killing – Third in series and I loved the first one and haven’t read the second yet.
- Of Spice and Men – Third in a series I haven’t even started yet!!!
- Best-Laid Plants – Sixth in a series that I am currently reading book five so almost caught up…lol.
See what I mean! #bookishproblems 🙂 Hoping to make this ban stick at least until January. I can do that, right?
Books read last week
- Becoming Dragon – Langlais just has fun series! I enjoyed this.
- Clouds in My Coffee – I really like this retro cozy series. It’s fun being in the 70’s instead of present day.
- Killer Party – My favorite series and now I am all caught up again, how sad…lol. Great addition to the series.
- The Exorcist – This had it’s ups and downs. Not as scary as I thought it might be but it had some creepy atmosphere and boy the vulgar language…lol. I think having seen the movie years ago might have dampened the fun but I still liked it.
- The Bluebonnet Betrayal – Totally thought I had read this one and realized I had not after getting the next in series on netgalley. It’s a favorite series so I had to jump on it and fix that mistake…lol.
- The Limehouse Text – This one is going much better than the second book so I am happy. 🙂
