I don’t know if I really have that much to update you all on this week.

There’s a LOOOOOOT of drama happening at work.  And by a lot, I mean there are three or four people who are just making everything miserable for everyone else.  I, for the most part, have managed to stay the hell out of it all–and thank goodness for that, because they’re just… UGHHHHH.  It’s a job, guys–let’s not make it feel like we’re back in middle school, ‘kay?  Please?

My grandma’s having a very rough time of things right now.  Her brother is dying of cancer–it’s spread to his blood and bones, and he’s in a lot of pain.  We’ve known this for a while, but…. The other day, we found out that my aunt, my grandma’s sister, has a tumor on the surface of her brain.  They were supposed to do more scans yesterday, to see if they could get a better image of it.  It’s been a very rough year for my poor grandma overall.

Other than that, I don’t think anything of importance happened this week–it’s been very quiet in my world lately, which I’m not complaining about at all.

How are you guys doing?  Anyone have anything fun planned for next week’s holiday?

Until next time, happy book-ing!

    • Bahahaha, I DID get a lot of books. I had absolutely no shelf-control this week! XD

      And yaaaaas, those books by Morgan Rice look SO SUPER interesting, don’t they?! Here’s hoping you enjoy them, if you get the chance to pick them up!

      Thanks so much for stopping by, Grace! ❤

  1. Ugh, sorry you have to deal with sucky co-workers and my thoughts for you, your family, and especially your grandmother during this particularly difficult month/year. ❤

    As for you books… HOLY HAUL, BATMAN! I hope you enjoy all your new pretties, though a majority of them are new to me.

    Happy reading and thank you for visiting us over at The Book Hookup!

    • Thank you so, so, SO much for the kind words, sweet Christina! I really appreciate it, and I’m sure my family would too. ❤

      AND PENGUINS, I know! I don't know what even came over me this week save a need to…pick up books in genres I don't usually read? I'll blame it on branching out/spreading my reading wings even farther. That always works as an excuse, right? XD

      Thank YOU so much for stopping by in return! Happy book-ing! ❤

    • Thank you SO much for the kind words and vibes, hon! I really appreciate it!

      And yes! I don’t read a lot of strictly fantasy, so I figured I’d pick a few different ones up and see if I could change that a little bit–hopefully I like them, they seem pretty promising! 😀

      Thank you so much for stopping by! ❤

  2. Wow, What a wonderful buffet of fantasy books! I am so sorry about your family’s health problems. Cancer is so unpredictable and scary. If you can, take your Grandmother out to lunch or to do something else to remind her that she has a great family surrounding her. Have a wonderful week ahead.

    • Thank you for the kind thoughts, hon. ❤ I think my mom, grandma and I will be spending Thanksgiving together (after I get off work) so it should be good.

      And right?! So many fantasy books, I dunno what even got into me this week! I don't usually READ fantasy! XD But these ones all sounded so intriguing, I couldn't help myself.

  3. Ooh I love the Monster Haven books! Every girl needs to have a Maurice…I even named my Kindle after him! What is it with people in workplaces who think they have the right to be playground bullies? Is it any surprise that so many people have to give up work with stress and depression? That’s what has happened to me. I’m sorry to hear about the tough time your family are having. Cancer is a truly evil disease and I hope your grandma can take the strength from her family to get through what is happening to those she loves. *hugs*

    • Well I have you to thank for the recommendations–I picked that series up because of you!

      And right?! Why can’t we all just get along and do our jobs? Reeeeeeeally.

      Thank you so much for the kind words, Chuckles–they’re much appreciated.
