I‘m so sad that I‘m all caught up now and have no more new Saga to read. This is one of my favorite series.

Saga Vol. 9 | Brian K. Vaughan

On my way home I stopped at Books-A-Million in hopes of finding volume 10 of Ms Marvel (sadly no luck). While there I realized I have not gotten caught up in Saga.

It‘s never a good night when you are lounging in the chair and you see a tick crawling on the arm of it. Needless to say he‘s drowning in rubbing alcohol and I‘m itchy all over.

Roman Crazy | Alice Clayton, Nina Bocci

Pickpick

I finished this #audiobook on my drive home from my parents. Sadly after I still had 3 and a half hours left to drive after it was done. Overall it was a good listen. It could have easily pissed me off, but thankfully it didn‘t. It also left me wanting to see Rome again and wishing I‘d done something with my art degree.

⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

Fish in a Tree | Lynda Mullaly Hunt

Pickpick

I have probably had the best reading week in a long time. I‘ve managed to read/finish five books which makes me extremely happy. I‘m also really on a #middlegrade kick. I‘ve hand sold this book to many and seen it on summer reading lists for schools when I worked at Barnes and Noble. I get why it‘s on those lists. I finally read it and it was enjoyable and at times made me want to cry.

I managed to finish one book for the #NetGalleyReadathon. I‘m ok with that though considering I‘ve been spending time with family and literally reading until 1-2am.

I liked this one, but then I‘ve liked everything I‘ve read by Meg Cabot. There are parts where I was like hmm ok, but overall it was good.

⭐️⭐️⭐️.5/5

Monster Trucks! | Susan E Goodman

Not book related entirely, but this is who I have been spending the past few days with. We‘ve read Skippy Jon Jones many times and played monster trucks just as much. It‘ll be so much nicer when he and his mom and dad move to St. Louis next month. At least they will be closer.

I‘m at a family party and this is how I‘m spending my time. I‘m not in the mood for loud kids and having not much say in any of the conversations (also I don‘t think anyone really pays attention to what I‘m saying anyway). So a book it is.

Before I got started on the #Netgalleyreadathon I needed to finish Aru and I cannot recommend these books enough! The story that Roshani Chokshi tells is so good and she leaves me wanting more.

I finished this one today on the ride home. I have the hardcover, but opted to listen to the #audiobook since it was so cheap on iBooks. Overall I enjoyed it and may pick up the second book in the series. It was also a nice distraction from the 6 1/2 hour drives I did Friday and today.

Today is National Cat Lady Day! I‘m definitely a cat lady who is missing her little cat like crazy right now. I got her results from her X-rays and she has asthma. They want her in on Tuesday to have blood work done and to test for bloodworm and heart worm. Pretty sure after hearing they want to test for that if my drive hadn‘t been 6 hours today I‘d have brought her with me.

My little cat made it through her X-rays this afternoon. Thankfully the pills the vet had me give her worked and it was no trouble getting her into the carrier. Now we just have to wait two days for her results and then June 20th she has dental work done.

Not book related. My anxiety is high tonight. I have to take my little cat to the vet after work tomorrow for chest X-rays to see if she has asthma. She fights me and has literally forced me into cancelling at the last minute before and hides somewhere I can‘t find for hours. That said the vet is having me give her a pill tonight and again at noon tomorrow in hopes she won‘t care when it comes time to put her in the carrier. I just hope it works.

cassiopia Good luck with everything. 1mo

I finished this one on Thursday night. I am still trying to put together an actual review for the blog I want to start back up, but I enjoyed it and once I got into the story I just wanted to keep reading. The character of Ambri was someone who I found liking more and more. I liked all of the characters actually, even the minor ones. I‘m ready for more books by this author. Also I really want to go to Portland now.
