Hello August, here we come | Weekly Snapshot

It's freaking August already! Of 2021.  Life I know how summer usually means a busy time for most people. It wasn't so much for me - my kids are still too little and we had some fun this summer but didn't brave outside a whole lot (maybe next year). And still, I am ready for summer to end. For one thing, stuff does slow down a little during rest of the year, and by stuff, I mean work mostly. And on the other hand, I'm ready for real school to start, so that I don't feel bad that my kids are wasting their brains, LOL.  I got to catchup with life this week and that means a great deal. There were a million things eating my brain all the time, distracting me from other things, so it was good to check off a bunch of things from my list. There's still more but for now, I'm in a good place (until it creeps up again of course).  This and next week, we are going to be busy with back-to-school stuff.

It is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came into their house last week (checked out library books don’t count, eBooks & audio books do).

This week I received two books that I am excited about.

I saw My Lost Daughter by Nancy Taylor Rosenberg on a lot of blogs last week during a blog tour, and the pretty positive reviews have made me excited to read this one. This is a pretty huge book, so it will take me a while to get through it, but that's okay for books. This is supposed to be a legal thriller (and I love courtroom novels - I'm a big Perry Mason fan), which is the main reason I accepted this one for review from PR by the Book.

The other book that came in was The Sweet By and By by Todd Johnson. I have been seeing this one occasionally on a few blogs, and the cover looks really wonderful, especially the color combination. I won this one at Joanne's Jo-Jo Loves to read during the BBAW giveaways.

Have you read any of these books?
