1. There is so much to do in RVA, nerdy things, outdoorsy things, history things. All the things!

Storm and Fury | Jennifer L. Armentrout

I had this awesome idea to take a pic of this book with the storms they‘ve been predicting in the background, except we got NONE of the storms, just a light rain last night. 🙄

My cousin and her family are visiting this weekend so I‘ve been busy around the house so I haven‘t had much time to read, but I‘m settling in for the evening and can‘t wait to see what happens.

Cute novella involving a tree nymph. As always, wish it was a full length novel rather than a novella, but I‘ll take what I can get from Harper.

I too started my romance obsession with Nora Roberts. I‘ve never been a fan of people who diss whatever it is that you‘re reading, they can take a long walk off a short pier. #readingisreading

Anna Dressed in Blood | Kendare Blake

1. Idk that it‘s endearing. But I love that my students call me Ms. P.
2. I guess Anna Dressed in Blood. I mostly read contemporary romance and the have fairly normal titles.
3. Oh definitely, I‘ve been disappointed by books that we‘re too hyped up, and also by negative reviews. I try real hard not to read any reviews or look at ratings once I decide to read a book.
4. I can 100% be suckered by a beautiful cover, but it‘s not the end all be all.

Shalvis is easily one of my favorite authors and I knew I could turn to her book to bring some happiness in to my weekend. She absolutely did not disappoint.

As with the other two books in the series there are two main females with their own love story. I loved that this one featured an already married couple going through some stuff.

STAY FAR AWAY

Looks like something cute and fun. That is NOT what you get.

1. I don‘t feel the author did any research on baseball players and how contracts work.
2. She just left her son (who hadn‘t woke up yet) in the hospital with her neighbor to wear a wire to catch the bad doctor. Riiiiiiight.
3. Not a single person in this book is worth liking. Even the righteous main character who gave the baseball player a unethical shot anyway.

petersonks15 4. Too much man handling by people.
5. Worse than a daytime soap. Random drug use, too many different plot things: injuries, skeevy doctors, attempted assault, blackmailing, abuse, murder, crazy ex, need I go on?
6. Not a fan of the awkward at times writing. I know Angel is finish up nursing school, it‘s super awkward to have her referred to as a “student nurse” several times throughout the book instead of using her name.

The Perfect Date | Evelyn Lozada, Holly Lorincz

At first I found this book cute and fun, but now it‘s like a train wreck I can‘t look away from. Too much man handling from the male love interest. Too much crazy with his people, I feel like I‘m reading a soap opera. The writing is off putting too. I‘m at 80% and instead of using the main characters name the author keeps using “student nurse”.

I really enjoyed this book, but the cover is a bit misleading. It says “fun and cute”, and while it was fun and cute (lots of banter and tension) there were also two serious things going on. One affected their relationship more than the other, but both made me cry.

Edit: The blurb does say you‘ll reach for tissues, my bad for being unprepared. 🤷🏻‍♀️

Reading this for @FountainBookstore YA book club. I‘m not normally one for these types of books (I‘m a light and fluffy kind of girl), but it sucked me in pretty fast. I should have no problem finishing by next weekend.

2. Y‘all are probably going to hate me, but I don‘t even want to own a fictional pet. (I‘m not anti pet for other people, just not interested for me.)
3. Just one???? Hermione Granger, I need some magic in my life, and she‘s kick ass to boot.
4. Lucky Harbor. I‘m a sucker for small towns.

1. The 90‘s, more late 90‘s than early, but all 90‘s were the best.
2. eBooks, it‘s super convenient, and if a book is big I don‘t notice.
3. Older, but just by a year or so.
4. Nope. According to google I live exactly 900 miles away from the hospital I was born in. 915 miles from where I grew up.

I absolutely love these covers. ❤️ I had a lot of things that needed to be done around the house this week as I prepare and start my kitchen makeover so I got through several hours of The Towering Sky. As with the first two books it‘s all about the drama, and I‘m ok with that.

I‘ve had other jobs besides teaching, but teaching is by far the hardest job I‘ve had. It‘s also the most fulfilling.

I absolutely wish that the general public knew and understood how incredibly hard and demanding this job is and give a little more respect to teachers.

Shout out to all teachers and my super supportive and amazing friends who listen to me vent about the less awesome things about my job.

#teacher #teachers #education

Here‘s my 20 things about me. Enjoy.

wanderinglynn Fantastic on doing a 10k! You can do it! But what‘s a rigged maniac? Is it like a tough mudder? 5mo
petersonks15 @wanderinglynn Yep! There are some differences, but basically it‘s a tough mudder. 5mo
wanderinglynn I‘ve never done a tough mudder or anything similar. Always wanted too, but could never convince any of my friends to do it with me. That‘s one of those things I think better with a friend. 5mo
petersonks15 @wanderinglynn yeah, I‘d never go solo, going with a group is what makes it fun. Nervous about getting dirty, that‘s not normally my jam, but I caved to some work peer pressure. I hope you get to do one someday! 5mo

Watching A Discovery of Witches. Already halfway through my third episode. Love having an extra weekend day so I can do things like binge TV shows based on favorite books.

I‘d like to reread it, but I‘m glad I didn‘t yet because I‘m not picking up on anything that they changed.... yet.
