Sunday Post (25)

The Sunday Post is a weekly meme hosted by Kimba the Caffeinated Book Reviewer ~ It's a chance to share news ~ A post to recap the past week on your blog, showcase books and things we have received and share new about what is coming up on our blog for the week ahead.


It's Sunday...again. How does that happen?  Well, I didn't get all I wanted to get done last week.  Actually, not even close to even starting it all.  *sigh* I think I could us another week going dark. I know I was hit or miss last week, but could really use another whole week off.  Life just keeps throwing curve balls and it's hard to keep up with everything these days.  I know it's getting better, but so much to get caught up on with the home and here. Weekends are even becoming saturated with work around the house for it.  I use to be able to clean and read and relax most of the weekend. That's not happening. I haven't even picked up a book this weekend. Yes, I'm whining. I miss the relaxing days.

Oh for the week...I don't have much planned, so I might take this week off blogging as well. I always have a Monday post for you. :) But other than that, I might take off to get things done. I have posts to create and things to get in order. I don't like being this out of whack and disorganized.

Magic Rising: Dragonfly by Jennifer Cloud
Goodreads Synopsis:
When the past holds only darkness and death, there is no way to out run it…

Deirdre Flye owns a security company for the rich and famous. No one knows about her past and she prefers it that way. That is, until a nosey cop confronts her with what he knows about her training as an assassin at Stone House.

Her troubles are compounded when a simple stalking case turns into something sinister. Deirdre never suspected that the “victim” would use a child to rope her back into a world of magic and death. Can she face the horror to come and survive with her mind and soul intact? Or will the cost be the life of an innocent?
