My husband will be sixty this week. We are going out to dinner tonight to celebrate and we’ll have the kids over for dinner & cake on his actual birthday. In April I read/listened to 15 books. A slight decrease from the month before, but I am sitting at 83/200 for Goodreads & 54 for the Audiobook Challenge. Do you ever have a week where you feel like you got nothing done and had zero time? That was my week in a nutshell. The Royals have only fourteen days of school left…time flies! As always, Stay Caffeinated.

    Happy Birthday to your husband! 15 books isn’t a bad number at all. I’ve just started Forever More and can’t wait to see what happens. And The Change was fantastic!

  2. Katherine

    I hate those weeks! They’re so exhausting and frustrating. Even though you’re down a bit it sounds like you’re doing great on your reading goals. Have a great week!

  3. MarthaE

    I hope your husband has a lovely birthday week.
    It was a strange week for me too.
    I like the looks of Legend & Lattes.
    I have to check on the Hollow series as I thought it ended a few back.
    Hope you have a good week and Happy Reading!

    I had that exact week this week! No matter how much I tried to do things, other things kept getting in the way. My husband got called out of town for work, and we learned he would be there for the next couple of weeks. So I’m keeping the house in order on my own. If I had known he would be away for so long, I would have planted fewer plants to water in the flower beds.

    Happy Birthday to him! I feel the same way sometimes, the week flies and I barely get anything accomplished but was somehow busy nonstop.
    Happy reading this week.

    Happy Birthday to your husband! Wow, I can’t believe the school year is almost over. Time really is flying by. Have a great week! 🙂

    I hope Mr Caffeinated has a lovely birthday celebration:)). It’s one of those milestone birthdays that stays in the memory! I knew your summer break was way ahead of ours here in the UK – but I didn’t realise just how far adrift they are. Our children don’t break up until the 3rd week in July. Have a great week Kimberly and I hope you’re feeling better.

    Advance birthday wishes to your husband!! I hear you about the meh week.
    I have been having that since the last half of April. I always get surprised about the school break because our summer is in April and May. So we are kind of getting rid of the summer heat soon, hopefully. 🙂 Hope you have a great summer soon.

  10. Jodie

    Happy Birthday to your husband! Well done for getting so many books read! Have a wonderful week ahead Kimberly!

  11. Lover of Romance

    Congrats! Such a milestone there! I so feel that this past week and it was such a slow week. The weekend just couldn’t get here fast enough haha and of course that just flies by. That audio cover for the Seana Kelly is GORGEOUS!! I love that green hue. Really blends well with her skin tone.

  12. Sophie

    Already happy birthday to Mr Caffeinated Kimberly! And yes time is flying by these days and I have no idea what I did at the end of the week! Enjoy the restaurant and the cake!

  13. Jessica @ a GREAT read

    Happy early Birthday to your hubby! Lately my weeks have all felt like a blurry boring mess. I guess boring is better than chaos, but every time I try to sum up my week, there’s not much to note! Lol!

    Ooh Kim Harrison’s book! I am debating about picking up an advanced copy on that one! I feel like they offered it to me a little late, but I guess maybe not. My review pile has gotten slightly out of control and my TBR pile continues to be chaos so I kind of want to get back to that as soon as possible. Lol.

    Hope you enjoy all the wonderful new reads!

    I hope your husband has a wonderful 60th birthday! I’m sure you’ll all have a fabulous time ☺️
    I think it’s common to have weeks where you’ve been busting your booty but not really achieved anything. The good news is they’re more like build-up weeks, like the boring episode before a season final 😁 next week will be awesome!

  15. Lori

    Happy Birthday to your husband.
    Yes, this school year is flying by. I hope time slows down for a nice relaxing summer.

    Have a great week!

  16. Laurel-Rain Snow

    I am always impressed with how many books you read each month! I am slacking quite a bit with my reading, but maybe that will change at some point.

    Enjoy your husband’s birthday.

  17. Greg

    Happy birthday to Mr. Caffeinated! Hope it’s an awesome day. And yes I have weeks like that. Can’t believe school is almost out. My kids are already out since they just finished exams at college. Now they can work more 🙂
