Summary -

So school has started and it feels good to get back to a regular schedule.  However my body was not quite prepared for 14+ hour days (get up at 5:30, workout, shower, cook breakfast, pack lunches, take kids to school, work 8+ hours, pick kids up, get home, prepare for next day, cook and eat supper, bathe kids).  Whew - it's been exhausting.  But both kids are liking school and the hubby has been helping by cooking.  He even let me get a nap the other night and woke me up when supper was ready - what a sweetie!  So my reading time has lessened a little, but the quality of my reading was great this week.   And you know what - most of the books were by little known authors.  There are some really astounding authors out there and I am so lucky that I am on the tours for their books.  I now have several new-to-me must read authors!

Best of the week:  Ashes to Water by Irene Ziegler - it's great, suspenseful, great characters and well thought out.  Make sure you check out this author.

Love the "Prey" books!

I've seen some positive reviews of Hunger and the premise sounds like a creative way to approach eating disorders - hope you enjoy!
