Last week turned out to be a very bad week, reading and otherwise. The otherwise part I’m going to skip because I don’t feel the need to complain about it today. The reading part was pretty much nonexistent which is what made the week very bad.
Stress, in my life anyway, can be forgotten or at least mitigated when I have a book to read. This week didn’t offer many opportunities for reading so the stress just built. By the time everything was over, all I wanted to do was sleep and that’s what I did.
One book did get finished yesterday, Blameless by Gail Carriger. It’s the third book in the Parasol Protectorate series and was a perfect choice for a lazy afternoon on the couch. I have two books left in the series and plan to save them for a rainy day, or a day on a plane, I haven’t decided which yet.
I’m catching up on the Red Seas Under Skies read along too. I wasn’t able to write up my post because I hadn’t read the section yet so it may appear later in the week.
I also hope to get to some of those reviews I wrote up last week posted and maybe finish up the one I started and never finished. Or I may take another nap and recover. It’s up in the air right now.
Finally, Happy Mother’s Day Mom! It’s been great. 🙂

I know just what you mean about books making it easier to cope with stress. I hope this week is much better for you, reading and life-wise.
So far, so good. I’m expecting a much calmer week this time around. Already got some reading time in too. 🙂
Sorry to hear you had such an awful week! I hope things start to look up in the coming week.
It’s already much better. 🙂
