Day 62

Today is day 62 of my book drought. At this point it’s anyone’s guess as to when I’ll break the dry spell.

What I’ve been up to in the last week…

I read a verygood post on whether or not BEA is worth attending. I can relate to this post so much it’s not even funny. For a mood reader who isn’t heavy into reading review books it can create a lot of pressure. I attended BEA in 2013 and 2014 and I absolutely don’t regret going BUT the pressure to read all of the books may be part of the reasoning behind my drought.

I have fallen behind on Walking Dead *GASP*! Technically I’m only 3 days behind but it’s been so long since I’ve missed seeing the show as it airs. It’s a strange feeling.

I’m still experimenting with new recipes. I found and made very simple recipes for Black Bean Soup and Baked Tortilla Chips…both will be made again soon! Yum!

I caved and watched a couple Christmas movies. I know, I know…just last week I refused to watch any until Thanksgiving week *hangs head in shame*. I’ve also discovered that Christmas movies make me both happy and sad. I love the movies but the reason I watch so many of them during the holiday season is because my hubby isn’t home. He works a lot this time of year so the movies sometimes make me feel a little lonely.

I ordered and received Christmas cards with my adorable pooch on them. I tried sending cards without the furrball one year and promptly received multiple complaints lol. So I now order photo cards for those picky family members ;-) and everyone else receives normal cards.

Please excuse my thumb, I had to block out our last name so no one can find us and steal the dog ;-p

Into the Storm is out on DVD! I saw it in the theater and I can definitely recommend it to any disaster movie lovers like myself.

Is it paranoid that I sometimes think our XBOX One is stalking us? Probably but anything is possible.

That’s all I can think of right now. What have you been up to?


  1. LOVE the Christmas card!!! I really need to get on the ball about those too.

    And I'm behind on TWD, as well :( But just by this last ep. Since we're watching it all online it makes it difficult to sit down and just watch it now, even though it's still so epic.

    Sorry about your book drought! I went through that a few months ago, but not as long. Hopefully you just need some time off!

    1. Aw hi Sonnie! Haven't talked to you in a while! HoPE everything's going smoothly with River!

      I'm not really sure I can be considered on the ball considering my address list is Mia lol. I can hand out about 7 on Thanksgiving but the rest will have to wait until my list appears.

  2. I went through the kind of drought you're going through right now and it was because of my first time at BEA. I grabbed ALL THE BOOKS and didn't want to read any of them after. I felt so overwhelmed. I still enjoy going but it's more of a NYC/BEA/seeing friends vacation for me and I'm getting much better at limiting my books.

    My problem this year was that about 50% of my BEA books were September releases and of course it overwhelmed me and I haven't even read half of them yet. lol

    I watched Edge of Tomorrow the other day and was surprised by how much I liked it.

    1. Edge of tomorrow sounds familiar. I'll have to check it out when I need a break from the Christmas movies lol

  3. AWWWWWWW cute cute cute!!!!!!!
    Can't wait to get one!

    I just started making my cards. So someday...

    1. Oohhhh so you're one of the picky ones demanding a puppy card? Lmao! :-p

  4. I was in a huge reading slump a few months as well. I just got out of it in November and I think it lasted at least three months, but I blame my pregnancy. When it finally ended I kicked butt in December with like at least 16 books read.


I love hearing from you and will try to respond to comments as much as possible.
