As I mentioned in my previous posts, I have been having some health issues that kept me from blogging over the last few weeks. Last week I was feeling a lot better, posted “Music Monday” and started to write reviews for the books I’ve read recently. Unfortunately, I ended up in the ER a couple of days later and was in the hospital for a few days. I’m home now but will be going back to have surgery this week. I’m hopeful that this will be my last surgery (for a long time at least).

I really appreciate all of your kind and supportive messages and comments. I’m looking forward to getting this surgery over and done with and I’m very excited to get back to blogging, reading, and reviewing. And of course, I can’t wait to catch up with all you’ve been reading too!

Take Care and Happy Reading!! ❤

 

My choice for this Goodreads Monday is:

 

 My Lovely Wife by Samantha Downing

39796904

Expected publication: March 26th, 2019 by Berkley Books

 

Goodreads Description:

Our love story is simple. I met a gorgeous woman. We fell in love. We had kids. We moved to the suburbs. We told each other our biggest dreams, and our darkest secrets. And then we got bored.

We look like a normal couple. We’re your neighbors, the parents of your kid’s friend, the acquaintances you keep meaning to get dinner with.

We all have secrets to keeping a marriage alive.

Ours just happens to be getting away with murder.

 

My Thoughts:

Wow! What an intriguing synopsis!  I love the cover of this novel too.

They say it’s “Dexter meets Mr. and Mrs. Smith”.  I’ve read some five-star reviews that said it was a shocking and captivating read. 

I can’t wait to start reading!

Music Monday : The Middle by Jimmy Eat World

Music Monday is a meme that was created by Drew from The Tattooed Book Geek. You pick a song and/or video and share it on Monday.

The song and video I am sharing today is:

 

Jimmy Eat World – The Middle

 

Hello everyone!  I’ve been away longer than I thought I would be. I’ve missed interacting with all of you. I can’t wait to catch up on your posts and look forward to seeing what you’ve been reading. I’m still feeling a bit rough but I am definitely improving. I think posting on Music Monday is a great way to ease back in. Plus I think this song is just perfect for how things have been lately.

“It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right”

I’ve read some great books and I can’t wait to share my reviews with you!

Happy Reading Everyone!! ❤

 

The Middle by Jimmy Eat World
Hey
Don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just try your best
Try everything you can
And don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right
Hey
You know they’re all the same
You know you’re doing better on your own so don’t buy in
Live right now
Just be yourself
It doesn’t matter if that’s good enough for someone else
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right
Hey
Don’t write yourself off yet
It’s only in your head you feel left out or looked down on
Just do your best
Do everything you can
Don’t you worry what their bitter hearts are going to say
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right
It just takes some time
Little girl, you’re in the middle of the ride
Everything, everything will be just fine
Everything, everything will be all right
