How is everyone's summer treating them thus far? Hopefully it's been filled with some sun, a good read or two (or three or more, if you're crazy like me *wink*), and new memories!
My family and I just returned on Sunday evening from Portland, Oregon (shout-out to Amber, though she's gone for a bit right now). Portland is beautiful, much to your surprise. Lol!
It was a lot of fun and we saw lots of different things. One of my favorite places that we visited was the Portland Rose Gardens. If you are a fan of flowers, or if you just think they're pretty, GO HERE! I took ALOT of pictures of these magnificent flowers, but haven't had a spare second to put them on the computer yet. Sorry about that....will do it as soon as possible, hopefully *grin*
Just thought that I would share some of that with you. Have any of you been to Portland, Oregon? Visited the gardens? Let me know....
NOW onto our next scheduled event:
WWW Thursday (again) *slaps hand* Bad Hannah!
Remember that you can find this meme on MizB's blog.
To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions…
* What are you currently reading?
* What did you recently finish reading?
* What do you think you’ll read next?
My answers this week:
Currently reading: The Last Child by John Hart
I have to make a note about this book. It. Is. Phenomenal!!! If you like mystery, crime, murder, action, sad books, this book is for you : ) Seriously though, I started this Sunday night and have about 50 or less pages left: there are 432 pages! I am in love with this book and plan on finishing it tonight!
Just finished: Vision in White by Nora Roberts
When the Heart Cries by Cindy Woodsmall
(Sidenote: LOVED both of these books!!! Highly, highly recommend both. I think I might be doing my first reviews of these books because I LOVED them so darn much (then I will do The Last Child, lol!))
Critical Care by Candace Calvert
Next read(s): When the Morning Comes by Cindy Woodsmall
The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
Yet again, another sidenote: Sarah Addison Allen is a wonderful, newish author. I have read one other book of hers, Garden Spells, and it was enticingly enchanting and magical! I am extrememly excited to read this book as well as her third and only other book that I haven't read: The Sugar Queen. She does not disappoint...
Okay, so that's how I've done recently. On a five day vacation, I read three books, not bad, eh?! I'm hoping to keep up this reading stamina because I'm zipping through books and they've all been good, too! I would be reading Bed of Roses (the sequel to Vision in White by Nora Roberts), but sadly it's checked out of the library currently *tears* They're going to call me when it comes in though!! Keeping my fingers crossed that it'll be any day now *wink*
I'd love to hear what you've been reading!
I wanted to put out a quick THANK YOU to everyone that wished me well during graduation. Sorry I did not reply and haven't been around since then, but it's been crazy! Now hopefully it'll calm down a bit and I can stay around, as long as my new job doesn't get in the way!
Talk to you soon and happy reading!!!
P.S. I'm SERIOUSLY working on the awards banquet!!! Everyone's going to hate me because they give me one and then "ignore" it. Well, it's in the works people, please hang in there with me!
