week in review: giving some authors the side-eye


Linking up with Meghan over at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the usual Monday goodness.

I’m afraid I don’t have much to report this week. Grad school started, which is terrifying, but this class is a Foundations for Graduate Success class, so it’s basics on writing, formatting, university policies, etc. Not super-intense, which is probably a good thing, because I got an email by mistake for my first journalism class, which starts in March, and now I’m really terrified of that class. My bachelor’s is in English, so the switch to Journalism is big for me.

I worked 3 1/2 days at the day job for a total of 45 hours. I don’t even want to talk about Friday…

I went to my first PT appointment for my leg. Something with how they do their billing makes them out-of-network with my insurance, so after my evaluation, they gave me some stretches to do daily at home and I go back in two weeks, but I’m really optimistic, because my leg has been feeling a lot better! I’m not sure if it’s the stretches, or maybe the Mobic I’m taking right now, but I’m loving it.

Published a post on my version of healthy spaghetti and meatballs.

Had this yumminess on Saturday:


I went to a local authors’ event on Saturday, with The Saint. We went because we both like Rachel Caine, but she wasn’t the only one there.


It was a great, small event, and I also discovered Sarah MacTavish, who writes young adult fiction about the Civil War and carries her books in an R2D2 suitcase. Plus, she was super friendly when I talked to her, which drastically increases the chances of me reading her work. Unlike the two ladies at the table on the left at the event, who stayed on their phones the entire time and ignored the other authors’ talks. Um…I can’t tolerate rudeness, so that makes them to-be-avoided in my book. Bad form, ladies.

My book purchases for Saturday:


I came home that night and read Firstlife. All of it. It was that good! Next up:  Ink and Bone. Probably…

    1. Happy…Tuesday. I do love to read, and I’ve been very lucky lately with the books I’ve chosen. Hope you find something great to read soon. And…stop reading the book if you don’t enjoy it! There are too many other books out there to waste time on something that’s not right for you.
