I Love Bouncing Back To My Blog On Monday...

So...I did not read anything I planned to read over the weekend! But...that is what I expect from myself...sigh! But I have a really good reason. A library ebook popped into Overdrive and totally distracted me! I love this author and I loved this book. British mystery writers are my downfall...and Peter Robinson's writing is addictive. I think this might be his 24th Inspector Banks book. They are seriously good.

What I am reading now...all descriptions from Amazon...

"In this profound and lyrical novel, acclaimed author Amanda Eyre Ward explores the deeper meanings of motherhood—from the first blissful hello to the heart-wrenching prospect of saying goodbye."

 

New books...all descriptions from Amazon...

"From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the smash bestseller Orphan Train, a stunning and atmospheric novel of friendship, passion, and art, inspired by Andrew Wyeth’s mysterious and iconic painting Christina’s World."

Lizzie Borden took an axe

And gave her mother forty whacks.

When she saw what she had done,

She gave her father forty-one.

Or did she?

"In this riveting debut novel, See What I Have Done, Sarah Schmidt recasts one of the most spellbinding murder cases of all time into a sensitive and humane portrait of two sisters caught inside a volatile household—and what it means to be free and truly loved."

 

"Internationally bestselling author Christopher Brookmyre, winner of the McIlvanney Prize for Scottish Crime Novel of the Year and finalist for the CWA Goldsboro Gold Dagger for his most recent novel, Black Widow, is renowned for his black humor, remarkably well-drawn characters, and killer twists. His new Jack Parlabane thriller, The Hack, is his most unstoppable novel yet."

 

"From the award-winning author and New Yorker contributor, a riveting novel about secrets and scandals, psychiatry and pulp fiction, inspired by the lives of H.P. Lovecraft and his circle."

 

The book I want to get my bookish little hands on...

 

"From the New York Times bestselling author of Flight Patterns comes a stunning new novel about a young single mother who discovers that the nature of friendship is never what it seems..."

I have to go and join Den in taking down the rest of Christmas...we were delayed due to his awful cold. It's still not completely gone but it's better...finally. And then last Monday this little angel sounded horrible. Her meow was hoarse...heeheehee...she was coughing...we were freaking out! Everyone forgot about her seasonal asthma when it gets cold and damp. So...after a day at the vet, the wrong meds, a shot, X-rays, and a million dollars later...she is back on her puffer and no longer hoarse. You haven't lived until you have tried to give a Tonk liquid antibiotics and an inhaler!

Wishing you an awesome day!

Hugs,

Patty

  1. Karen White and Christina Beker Kline are both coming here, but not together. I can't imagine giving any animal an inhaler.

    How do you get a cat to use a puffer???

    1. You actually buy this rubber device that goes over their mouth and nose...you spray the med from the inhaler into that...with the mask pressing against your arm away from the cat so they don't get scared...it works! It's called an Aerokat!

  3. OMGoodness; I imagine it's (giving your cat) like trying to give a toddler icky medicine? That British mystery series sounds good. I have found international authors can have a different style of writing than American ones which can be an interesting change.

  4. Wow, so many tempting books! I love Karen White and Christina Baker Kline...and now want to explore The Nearness of You and See What I Have Done.

    Also, the Peter Robinson books, which I have not even begun to read. Thanks!

    OMG...so glad Lucy is better, but she just wants to be sure that you pay attention to her.

    Enjoy!

  5. Patty, I've been collecting Peter Robinson's books and haven't read one yet! Am I the only person that does that? I love the British show DCI Banks.

  6. Heyya; yes, 0's or 2 mm double pointed needles are the smallest I've ever used. There's even 00 or 000, etc. For Size 19's, while bulky yarn knits up fast, maneuvering fat needles can be awkward and take a toll on your hands so just take your time and take breaks.

    1. Thank you for that tip. My sister said I may have to change the needle size depending on my gauge! Yikes!

    1. It's a special device that goes over their nose and mouth...once they get used to it...it's really easy...the same device is used on dogs, too.
