Another crazy week here with unexpected stressors. I was having some leg swelling for past 6 months - just (1) leg usually and at the end of the day so my doctor set me up for a venous ultrasound which was on Tuesday. They found a blood clot in my leg and ended up wheeling me over to the ER where I spent 6+ hours - they wanted to admit me as they found 2 smaller clots on lungs as well but, I ended up going home with blood thinners. I'm so grateful my doctor had the insight to order that ultrasound. It was scary but, I feel good though. Then the following day my husband took a fall (no serious injuries - just sore. When it rains it pours. Life has to get better!
The temps have been in the low 90s all week so that made for more time indoors relaxing. I posted reviews for Reputation; Vaughn and Tracy Flick Can't Win; Perrotta. I was able to relax and enjoy the 600 page Shell Seekers; Rosamunde Piclher (review this week). It's a book I wanted to read --in summer -- for nearly 20 years. and it's of my 20 Books of Summer list as well. So happy I read it - very satisfying.
READING - I have a couple other really good books going right now that I hope to finish up this week.
The Measure; Nikki Erlick
I came by this book by chance on my library website and it had a unique premise which has appealed to me. I'm at he 70% mark and enjoying it.
Trailed; Kathryn Miles
I'm about (3) chapters into this book and it's good but I'm also reading a couple other books at the same time.
A riveting deep dive into the unsolved murder of two free-spirited young women in the wilderness, a journalist's obsession—and a new theory of who might have done it.
Take My Hand; Dolen Perkins-Valdez
I read a review on Helen's Book Blog and added this one to my TBR list. The library hold became available and OMG what a wonderful (and sad) kind of story. It's so well written and I'm at about 55% point right now.
