This past week involved more resting and sleeping. However I am happy to report that I am feeling much better than I was. I'm not in nearly as much pain and I'm able to move around normally again. One thing that is true about having a lot of surgeries is the younger the person is the quicker they recover and heal. So I guess I have that going for me.
Christmas isn't far away at all and I still haven't put up any decorations, but meh. I don't think I will even bother as we will be celebrating Christmas Eve and Day at my parents and my in-laws. On the plus side, I managed to get out today and do some Christmas shopping. I only have a few more things I need to pick up and then I am done.
This past week I finished Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich (click on the link to see my review). Its nice to get back into this series again after a long break. However not much progress is being made with our main character. I gave it a 3.5/5.
I had hoped to complete Submerged by Dani Pettrey by now, but I have been making good progress on it. This is such an exciting book.
After completing Sizzling Sixteen, I began reading Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay. It has been quite sometime since I read a book focusing on the holocaust and I knew it would be heartbreaking. The story is really captivating me already.
New Additions to my TBR Pile:
This past week I added The Curious Charms of Arthur Pepper by Phaedra Patrick to my pile. It is a NetGalley sent from the publisher Harlequin US and Canada.
Synopsis from Goodreads:
When Arthur Pepper discovers a mysterious charm bracelet in his late wife’s wardrobe, he sets off on a journey to discover, charm by charm, her secret life before they met.This sounds like it will be an interesting book and I plan to start reading it after I complete Sarah's Key.
Having been married for over 40 years, 69-year-old Arthur Pepper is mourning the loss of his wife. On the anniversary of her death, he finally musters the courage to go through her possessions, and happens upon a charm bracelet that he has never seen before.
What follows is a surprising adventure that takes Arthur from London to Paris and India in an epic quest to find out the truth about his wife’s secret life before they met, a journey that leads him to find healing, self-discovery, and love in the most unexpected of places.
That is all for now. I hope that you all had a great week and are looking forward to the coming festivities.
