Squeaked in and achieved my 48 300 steps for the week. On the whole the weather was good and pleasant to be out in.

Well my gran niece turned up this week, just when they weren't expecting it.  A quick birth just reaching the hospital in time.  Older brother, all of 19mths took a look at her and said, "Oh No!" Mind you that was at 4am in the morning!

Last week I read Elizabeth's post over at Thoughts From an Evil Overlord on Bookish Decor.  That set me off spending a few hours chasing down bookish things to drool over.  I see Fine Arts America now does throw pillowsduvet covers  and tote bags from some of its art. Hmm, I have a few of their bookish prints on my wall, but now I am thinking of something more. You see how easily I am led!

This Sunday afternoon I just spent awhile listening in to the live RWA 2015 award ceremony on Saturday evening in New York.  Fun to watch and see and listen in to a few known authors to me, and a lot not!  Nice to see J. D. Robb  win the Romantic Suspense. Woo hoo for Jill Shalvis One in a Million (still need to read it!)  And then.... the live feed died! And relived a little way along. My word Lisa Kleypas is a great hostess.

What I read last week:

The Liar - audiobook. Enjoyable as Nora Roberts is always.
The Bourbon Kings - Juicy soap drama and I'm in waiting for the next one!
Three Weeks With Lady X - great historical romance, well plotted and great characters.
Heavenly Hirani's School of Laughing Yoga - I know a mouthful! Enjoyable and quirky.

Up next:

I think it will be The Spring Bride by Anne Gracie, really enjoy her fun historical romance series. So will help me to read out July. Seems to have been a week of romance reading. And then it will be August!

  1. Hard to believe it's going to be August! Seems like I was just saying that about July. The RWA award ceremony sound fun- how nice to be able to listen in.

  3. I've never bought any book-ish decor but I like the idea of some funky tshirts or similar which give a bit of an indication who I am...

    I hadn't realised you could listen to the RWA awards... I did see Nora Roberts / JD Robb on FB and someone sharing pics of their trip.

  9. I'm dying to read The Liar! I'm really hoping to get to it soon. Nora's basically a guarantee for a fun read. What a birth story your grand niece has! That's crazy! I saw Elizabeth's bookish decor post and drooled over it but didn't look any further at the sites. I'll definitely have to go check out Fine Arts America. Have a great week!

  10. Congratulations on your grandniece! And how adorable her older brothers reaction. I also watched/listened to the RWA awards. It was exciting and there were so many authors there that I've loved reading from. You are doing great on Fitreaders and I did nothing last week. But I'm getting back on track this week.

    Have a great week!

  12. That's cool that you got to experience the RWAs. I'm not sure I read that Jill Shalvis book yet either. I want to read Lisa Kleypas's Brown-Eyed Girl too.

    Congratulations on your grandniece!

  13. Congrats on your new grandniece ... don't you just love kids' honesty, made me giggle. Glad you enjoyed The Bourbon Kings, another one on my TBR pile that is just about toppling.

    I'm trying to restrain myself from clicking on the links you included for Bookish Decor or it could be hours before I get back on track with Monday commenting lol. *sigh* I have no will power. Visiting your blog is as bad as my pinterest addiction and I mean that in the nicest possible way :))

    Well done on your steps this week. Happy reading!

  15. Aw congrats on the new arrival. That's too funny about the older sibling. Hope yall have a great week!

  16. Congrats on your grand niece!!

    I could use some bookish decor, although my husband would probably disagree. The entire wall of books in our bedroom is probably enough for him, but I love seeing all the bookish decorations people have!

    I'm really glad to see you enjoyed Bourbon Kings because it's on my list!

    Have a great week!
