Good afternoon fellow Saloners! It’s another rainy day here in Northern California, which makes me happy. Rainy season is always my favorite; there’s just something so fresh and earthy about the rain. Plus, we’ve seen it so rarely the last few years, I love it even more now when it comes along.

It’s been another pretty slow reading week for me. I did manage to get one of my promised reviews posted, but I haven’t finished any new books this week. It was kind of an odd week, but then, holiday weeks always throw me off (even holidays as minor as President’s Day). I did, however, have an okay week in terms of posting new stuff on the blog. I teased the book Beautiful Americans in my Teaser Tuesday post, then I shared some of my impulse purchases from a trip to the bookstore on Tuesday as well. It came a day late, but I finally got my act together to share another Highlighting History post this week, this time on Josephine Bonaparte. I talked a bit about my methods ofย  book organization in my Booking Through Thursday post, and I finally posted my review of The Deception of the Emerald Ring by Lauren Willig.

Do I hope this coming week will be better? Of course. I’ve been kind of falling into my new daily habits over the course of the last few weeks, and so I hope I’ll get more reading done. So this next week, you can tentatively expect to see:

-my review of The Gargoyle

-my review of The Seduction of the Crimson Rose

-my review of Beautiful Americans

-(possibly) my review of The Temptation of the Night Jasmine

-maybe a new Highlighting History post?

At any rate, I hope everyone has a fantastic Sunday. Mine will be spent alternating between cleaning (which is unfortunately my Sunday tradition) and reading where I can.
