Good Evening, Everyone!


I bet everyone thought I was going to skip this week's Sunday Post and It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - right?

I meant to have this post published on Sunday morning but due to computer issues I couldn't work on it until tonight. It all started early (very early) on Saturday morning when I attempted to listen to a music CD while writing a review. My laptop's DVD drive failed to read the CD, as well every other CD I had nearby. Also, the drive couldn't read DVDs as well, which was odd as I just played a movie on Wednesday with no issues. It turns out there was a new Windows 10 update. I ran the update and with my bad luck there was an error with the installment. After doing a bit of research on the issue, I backed up all my files and reset the computer. The good news is I was able to install the windows update after the reset was complete. The bad news is the DVD drive still cannot read CDs but I can now play select DVDs. I would say the drive's laser is cracked. I had an old HP external DVD drive that I got out of storage that I'll be using. My laptop's getting some age on it, so it would probably be a waste of money for me to have the DVD drive fixed. I would rather put that money back for a brand new laptop.

FYI: I do have a newer desktop computer. I just don't use it very often.


What Am I Currently Reading?

I was able to do a little reading on IT last week. I'm currently on page 383. However, I'm going to have to put IT aside for a day or two so I can read Understanding Miss Cecilia by Carolyn Miller. I had 100% forgotten I had signed up to review the title for a book tour that began today. I have until August 4th to post my review. I'll start reading it tomorrow!


Recent Reviews

Between having a cold sore and having to work my laptop, I didn't post any new reviews last week.


New on the Bookshelf

It shouldn't be no surprise to anyone that I own a new James Patterson title - Sophia Princess Among Beasts - co-written with Emily Raymond. It's look like an intriguing read, one that I hope to get to soon.

  1. I can’t keep up with Patterson’s publishing schedule. I want his latest with Candice Fox, The Inn.

    Wishing you a great reading week

    1. Yes, it's hard to keep up with all his new titles. He releases 1 to 3 books per month! I want to read The Inn too. I'm going to request a review copy from the publisher but I'm not keeping my fingers crossed about it. If I don't get a ARC, then I'll eventually buy it.
