What I Read Last Week

Howdy from Tennessee!

I arrived here on Friday night after driving through a nasty storm. It then rained Saturday, was nice yesterday and is raining today.  I just woke up to sound of intense thunder. I never hear thunder like that in California!

It's was great to see my sister, brother-in-law and niece last week.  We had a great time and I'm so glad I added that leg to my trip.  They ended up taking us to Mestizo which is a restaurant owned by Aaron Sanchez - a judge on the show Chopped.  My youngest adores that show she she LOVED being at his restaurant.

Now I'm at my parents home and I love it.  It's so wonderful to see them again and see how they're settling in to their new home.  The house is huge and beautiful. I love old homes and this being 88 years old it certainly fits the bill.

Yesterday my other sister (who lives about an hour away) her husband, my other niece and her husband along with their new baby - my grand-nephew - came over to my parents house.  I love my family cuz they're just crazy and we had so much fun spending the day laughing.  Here's a picture of my baby with James, my grand-nephew:



About what I read this past week?  Well, not much!  I've been so busy with family and traveling that reading fell by the wayside.  I did read one book for Book Binge:

Road of No Return by KA Merikan is the story of a man who's an outlaw in an MC and he's gay.  Of course he has no desire to classify himself as such.  He finds himself falling for the new tattoo artist in town and falling fast.  Zak, the artist, sees Stitch (the biker) as a fuck buddy  - not a relationship.  The pair has issues and Stitch ends up being part nice guy, part bastard.  I had some mixed feelings about the book and both loved and hated Stitch at different times.  It was a tad too violent for my liking but that's personal preference - it may not be for others.  3 out of 5

My Book Binge reviews that posted last week:
Debutantes Don't Date by Kristina O'Grady
The Longest Night by Kara Braden

Happy Reading!

Aren't they cute together? My niece just kept asking my youngest if she was tired of holding the baby yet and she just kept giving my niece and adamant, "NO!" lol She just loves kids.
