Monday’s Minutes

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

  • An Echo in the Bone by Diana Gabaldon
  • Bad Magic by Pseudonymous Bosch – This is on hold until March since it’s an ebook and I’m participating in Feel the Paper Love February.
  • Cupcakes, Trinkets, and Other Deadly Magic by Meghan Ciana Doidge – This is a book club read.

 Echo Bad Magic Cupcakes


Total pages read: 100

Total # of books for the year: 9.  This week has been so busy.  I accepted a full-time job offer on Tuesday, but since I’m not starting until the 16th, I’m still working my part-time job until then.  I’m also still doing freelance editing work.  As soon as the Boyfriend and I knew that I’ll soon have a steady income, we began looking for a new place and figuring out budgets and how much it will cost to move when our current lease is up in April.  There’s a bunch of other stuff going on as well, and it all added up to us feeling overtasked and a little overwhelmed.  We went out to breakfast on Saturday after looking at yet another place and had a long talk to hash everything out, and then made an agreement to do no more adulting for the rest of the day.  I think we both feel better and are more prepared to handle all the changes coming up within the next few months.  Before that, though, there was Harry Potter Book Night.  I put a lot of work into it, so I was a little disappointed that only one lovely person participated.  However, we both had a lot of fun, and I’m glad she came over to the blog to show her support.

    1. Can you believe there wasn’t a single registered event in Austin?! That’s why I did my own. Otherwise, I would have been right there with all the kids 🙂

  1. Aw, I’m sorry you didn’t get more visitors for your Book Night! I guess you just never know how many people are actually going to show up for these things…

    On the plus side, yay for making exciting future plans! 🙂

  2. I was really surprised no one else showed up- made it easy for me to win, even with my dogs trying to get me away from the computer every other minute. If it’s any consolation, though, I made a month-long challenge and only one person joined me… when I actually expected it to be just me. 😉
