Here's hoping you're all having a relaxed and joyful Sunday. There's been play time, movies, a trip to Starbucks and swimming here today. It has been so peaceful so far and I hope that that continues into the evening!

Overhaul or polish

Image result for quotes on editing

I'm happy to share that the revision on my current manuscript is finally going well! So far it has been mostly polishing but I am coming to the last quarter of my book. I know there is some overhaul work coming within a couple of those chapters. I'm excited about it though because I am one step closer to submitting this book.

Descendants 2


My kids (and I) have been looking forward to this movie for months! Now that we've watched it we can honestly say that it is GREAT! It was so much fun and already my kids are talking about watching it again tomorrow! The soundtrack is really fun, too. I have a feeling it will be making its way into our home tomorrow.

Teaser Tuesday: The Alice Network



Teaser Tuesday is newly hosted by Ambrosia at The Purple Booker. To play along, just do the following:

- Grab your current read 

- Open to a random page 

- Share two “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page 

- BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!) 

- Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR list if they like your teaser. 

My teaser this week is from page 118 The Alice Network by Kate Quinn:

I thought back to Eve's haunted whisper when she'd quoted  that bit about how death awaited the enemies of Germany. Something about her said combatant to me.

The Alice Network

No automatic alt text available.

I am loving this book! I especially enjoyed reading it poolside at my in-laws' this afternoon! If you like historical fiction, books set in either World War and strong female characters then I highly recommend this book.

"You don't need my father's consent. It's my name on the account. It was arranged that I would have access to it when I turned eighteen, and I'm nineteen. You don't need anyone's consent but mine."

  • I’m currently reading…

I can't wait to get a copy of Secrets of the Tulip Sisters by Susan Mallery. It comes out tomorrow and I have been really looking forward to it! The only thing I'm undecided about is whether to purchase the paper or electronic version. I'm leaning toward the paper version because she is one of my favorite authors. Also, I love the cover. Tulips are my favorite flower and they're definitely displayed on the cover of the book. Okay, I'm decided: the paper version of the book it is!
