For the month of July I listened/read seventeen books and hit 143/200 for Goodreads challenge. This week was hectic. I spent it trying to get caught up on work after being off for a week. The price of vacation. I feel like I am a hamster in a wheel. LOL Yesterday it rained and I was a total sloth. I’ve got a summer sinus infection. Be kind, where a mask and… Stay Caffeinated.

    Sinus infections are terrible. In the summer? Eek, sorry Kimba. Sending you elbow hugs. Hope this is a great week! I’m super behind already, lol.

  2. MarthaE

    Yes- we always have to get caught up when we get to take a much-needed break. :/
    Another good month of reading for you!
    I hope your infection goes away quickly.
    I hope you enjoy Deal With the Devil – I liked it and bet it will be good in audio.
    Happy Reading/listening!

  3. RO

    Hope you’re feeling better these days, and welcome back! Ditto on the staying safe, and sending some hugs your way! RO

    oh the price of taking a vacation….hope you adapt to work easily this week. I hope you enjoy the Kit Rocha book, I have heard some fabulous things about it.

  5. SJ

    Good luck catching up. I’m hoping to be a sloth for the next two days I have off.

  6. IntrovertedJen

    I always wondered if the stress of trying to catch up was worth the vacation on my first day or two back at work! Good luck on your hamster wheel! 🙂

  7. ShootingStarsMag

    Yeah, coming back to work after vacation can be rough! I hope you’re all caught up soon. And I hope you feel better too!


  8. Sophia Rose

    Yes, the vacation catch up is quite the bear. We rushed about all Saturday morning getting errands and outdoor chores done in time for our marathon rain. It has been raining since noon yesterday and supposed to hang around for two more days. I’ve been singing the flood song from Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. 🙂

    Nice job on your monthly reading totals.

    Have a good August, Kimberly!

    Sorry to hear about the sinus infection! Those are no fun. 🙁
    I hope you manage to get caught up after your break and this week is a lot easier.

    I also picked up Deal With The Devil this week but on ebook, not audio. I’ve heard lots of good things so fingers crossed we enjoy it! 🙂

    Well done for reading 17 books this month! That’s basically what I’ve read this year so far… haha! And sorry to hear you’ve been unwell, I hope you get well soon.

  11. Lola

    That sound sound tough catching up on work after a week off and then it almost feels like you didn’t just have a vacation. Sorry to hear about your hectic week and sinus infection. I hope you feel better soon. Deal with the Devil sounds like a good one. I hope you’ll enjoy your new books and have a great week!

  12. Sophie

    Sorry you have a sinus infection!! THey are the worst. And yes I know all about catching up with work after the holiday. I hoep this week will be better Kimberly!

    It’s rainy here today, and I’m feeling the lazy, hard. Stay well and have a great week!

  15. Natalie @Natflix&Books

    Yuck for sinus infections. Great job on you GR goal! I set mine at my normal relatively low number and I am several books behind. I’m having a hard time finishing books right now. Happy reading!

  16. bookworm

    Feel better soon! I know what you mean, I’m back to work tomorrow after having this week off and I know I will be extra busy this upcoming week catching up.
    Enjoy your books this week, I want to read Mexican Gothic!

    Congratulations on managing to get through so many reads – you’re clearly well on your way to reaching an ambitious target during a VERY difficult time. Go you! I hope the coming week is a good one for you, Kimberly:)

    Well done on listening/reading seventeen books in July and for reaching 143/200 for your Goodreads challenge! My reading picked up last month too, although not by that much! ? I hope you’re able to get back into routine after your holiday and that you feel better soon. Take care and happy reading. ?
