Hello readers! I hope you all had great week are safe and healthy. Last week has been really busy with both my husband and daughter recovering from stomach bug and getting back to normal routine; visiting my brother’s wife as she has to be hospitalized in the weekends due to jaundice; it was my mom’s birthday on 7th (My kid was more excited about cake cutting than my mom); and yes I started YouTube channel for Shorts. I wanted to start YT channel for ages and I finally did but for now I will keep it to shorts as I’m still not comfortable with long videos, but shorts are very much like reels and enjoy making reels these days.
If anyone is interested in YT shorts here is my link to the channel. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCpQv7OIBtF60loMxj2y7yqw
It will be great if you can hit that subscribe button. If you have any tips please share them in comments.
And here are pictures of literary bookmarks.
Let me know which one is looking better. I have one more to make and then I’ll open the ring and cut pieces to make bookmarks.
Last, Current, and Next read
(click on title to read Synopsis)
Last week I read- Just Another Love Song by Kerry Winfrey
This was good. I liked writing and absolutely loved Baileyville small town and its quirky community but I didn’t get that chemistry I felt with previous books by the author. I’ll be rating it 4.
I’m just starting- Stay Awake by Megan Goldin
I enjoyed previous books by author, especially Night Swim and I’m hoping to enjoy this too.
Next I’ll be reading – Love, Lists, and Fancy Ships (Love, Lists & Fancy Ships #1) by Sarah Grunder Ruiz
I was supposed to finish this earlier and start second book in this series today but as you all know I’m behind in my reading. Anyway, I enjoy the concept of bucket list/goal list falling apart because of life and the character picks up that list again later in life. I’m really excited to finally read this.
