week in review: all the books


Linking up with Meghan at Clean Eats, Fast Feets for the Week in Review.

Gotta be honest:  this’ll be short and sweet, because I really didn’t do much this week. Still need to get that race re-cap post written…

I worked a full day on Wednesday and Friday, and a few hours on Tuesday and Thursday. Craziness, with seven pending patients at one point.

I drafted, edited, and submitted my final assignment for my Field Broadcasting class (a news broadcast about the Wild Canyon Ultra).

I went grocery shopping with the BFF—a bad idea, since we both end up spending money we didn’t plan on—and then meal prepped for the week.

My kitchen counter, as I started meal-prepping.


Is this not the cutest impulse buy ever? I said I needed to work on drinking more water…and then saw this adorable pineapple glass.

Wednesday was Administrative Assistant’s Day, so my awesome boss got me this:


We also had lunch delivered (by which I mean we placed an order and I drove across town to pick it up. In the rain. And the 30-degrees-colder-than-when-I-arrived-at-work-temps. I should check the weather.) and the staff got me an awesome card and a Starbucks gift card.

I saw Rampage with the Saint. Pretty enjoyable movie. Made me jump a time or two. I love The Rock. He’s got such great comedic acting skills. Not hard on the eyes, either.

I reviewed Then She Was Gone, Shattered Mirror, Sky in the Deep, and Suitors and Sabotage. Then She Was Gone was a decent read:  I didn’t really like any of the characters, but the mystery drew me in. Shattered Mirror was a solid read in the Eve Duncan series by Iris Johansen. Sky in the Deep was a FANTASTIC read! A sort-of Scandinavian young adult historical fantasy (too many genres?) that I read straight through because the characters were THAT engaging. Suitors and Sabotage was a young adult historical romance that was sassy and charming, and I really enjoyed it.

I also read (and will review) Circe and Song of Blood and Stone. Both of them in less than 48 hours this weekend. (To be honest, I read these two and everything I reviewed this week except for Then She Was Gone this week. #quickreader #greatreadingweek).

And that’s it for me.

  1. I am sooooo happy to hear your work has an Administrative Assistant Day. a) your position is SO necessary and we should all be so thankful for you and b) this is the sign of a good business mentality. I work somewhere right now where there is no sense of “we want to keep our good employees happy and know they are appreciated so they continue to do good work for us.” We have zero incentive to keep doing good work and I never feel appreciated.

    Also – congrats on finishing and submitting your final assignment. And excellent purchase with the pineapple cup.

    1. Thank you! My company is EXTREMELY pro-employee (and compared to my last job, that was like culture shock). I know that I’m blessed with a fantastic boss and a fantastic team, and they make all efforts to make every employee feel appreciated, but the company as a whole makes efforts, too (and it’s a global company). Working some place like this makes a tough job–healthcare–less tough.

    1. Me too! It’s funny, I love fantasy books, but when I pick books to review, very few of them are actually fantasy. Also, a margarita sound wonderful (even at 7 a.m.), but I think I’ll try my fruity, low-cal current favorite: diet Sunkist with cake batter rum (It’s basically an adult snow-cone. And I can say it’s healthy…ish.)
