Latest Book News and Recap

Hi, everybody, how are you? I hope you are having a great weekend. Last week was a busy week because there has been a home renovation going on. The last three days have been exhausting yet productive and my body is now starting to feel the effect. I’m having a cold and a headache but resting is unfortunately not an option since there is a lot to do around the house (cleaning and redecorating).

Escape by Jay CrownoverMoreover, my classes start on Monday so I’m doing some non-fiction reading to prepare myself mentally. I just finished an awesome non-fiction book, DEEP WORK by Cal Newport, that I loved so very much. Have you read it? I highly recommend it to EVERYONE. It is categorized as a business book but it is perfect for everyone.

    I rarely read non-fiction anymore, but I am glad you found a good one. I’ve never renovated anything, but I am sure it’s not easy. Hope the beginning of school goes well for you!

  2. Greg Hill

    Good luck with the home renovations- and hope you feel better! It’s always nice to redecorate, but not when you don’t feel good. 🙂 Hopefully you get some relax time too.

    I always like seeing the deals you highlight, especially the 1.99 ones I always seem to find something that looks promising. 🙂

  3. Renovating is always so exhausting–but awesome once it’s done. Hope you feel better soon! Thanks for the head’s up about Illuminae. That’s a great one to own on Kindle for 2 bucks. Happy reading!

  4. Literary Feline

    I hope you are able to rest soon! I am sure everything will be wonderful when it’s all done. Good luck with your classes!

  5. I haven’t been on your blog for a while, and I’m surprised that you changed your Sunday post logo! I really like it. And that is a lot of discount books. I’ll never make it through XD

    Have a great week!

    Anne @ The Reading Life

  6. Feel better and have a great week! I want to get a copy of Still Me soon…I have After You on Pippa, but haven’t yet read it. But now I have added it to next week’s reading list.

    Enjoy your weekend.

  7. awww, I’m sorry you can’t get the rest you need to kick your cold!! NOT FAIR!! I hope you can at least get rid of your headache before Monday. Those are the worst, especially if your life is in a chaotic mess.

    Way to kill my TBR!! I need to leave Amazon alone for awhile! I DID pick up Misconduct a few weeks back, though. Christy recommended it a few years back to I had to grab it 🙂

    Hang in there and I hope you feel better REAL soon!! Good luck on Monday….

  8. I hope you fee better before your classes start. Home renovations are horrible, but they are well worth it when everything is finally finished. Have a wonderful day.

  9. Awwwww, I’m sorry you’re not feeling well. I feel like everybody either has a cold or the flu, and it isn’t any fun. 🙁 I hope that your classes go okay, it’s always hard switching back to non-fiction after reading just fiction for a while. Have a good week! 🙂

  10. Hope you will feel better soon. It seems that the cold is a recurring theme around the blogosphere – I have one two and I read a lot of Sunday Posts featuring a cold as well. Try to take time to rest though, that is also important!

  11. Jenea

    On no, hope you get to feeling better soon. Good luck with the home renovations. Get some rest and have a great Sunday!

  12. My week has also been relatively exhausting. Don’t know why, but I could barely even get up today. Maybe it’s just the winter weather?
    I’ve never heard of Deep Work! I’ll have to look into it 🙂
    Hope you have a good week, less tiring!

  13. Michelle P

    Renovations can be exhausting. I hope you are able to rest soon. Good Luck with your classes!
    I hope you have a great week, Geybie! Happy Reading! 🙂

  14. Renovations are so tough. I hope they are done soon and that it was worth it. I have been so busy lately, I hope tpo catch up soon. I need to read some more non-fiction, especially now with the new business looming.
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  15. I hope the DIY project is over without too much extra work – I hate all the upheaval and mess! Deep Work sounds good – I’ve also recently read a really good non-fiction book, Why We Sleep. Have a great week and try not to work too hard!

  16. One of my takeaways from looking at all those lovely covers is if I do ever issue a third edition of my book Dancing Nude in the Moonlight, I’m going to need main character Michael to show his ripped chest on the cover. Just saying (lol). Happy reading week and feel better.

  17. I hope you have a wonderful week at school! I’m sorry you’re not feeling good, I just got over a cold. I hope you feel better soon. And I thank you (my wallet doesn’t) for posting some of these sales! I picked up a few.

    Tina @ As Told By Tina

  18. Take care of your health – you don’t want to be worn out when you start classes. Your comments on Jezz de Silva’s book have me interested. I haven’t read Deep Work but it sounds good. Glad you liked it.
    Hope you rest up and feel better and get in some Happy Reading!

  19. I agree Deep Work has something for everyone so long as they are open minded enough to explore how it might apply to them. Stay well, take some well earned rest!

  20. Will have to check a few, apparently there’s more than one I think I could really enjoy . . . Figures, huh? ;P Hope you feel better soon and that your week is going to be a very good one!

  21. Hi Geybie, I hope you feel better this week. Sounds like you have a lot going on but I hope you can schedule in a little down time to rest and recover from feeling ill. Ok, taking my mom hat off now 🙂 Deep Work is a new title for me so I’m making a note and will look into it a bit more later. I’m a fiction girl at heart – love escaping into a good book. One I’m excited about that you featured is Still Me by Jojo Moyes. I mentioned on another blog yesterday that Lou, the main character, is one of my favorite fictional characters.
    Have a great week!

  22. I’m trying to read more non-fiction this year. I’ll have give Deep Work a try, just ignore the “business” classification.

  23. Kathy Martin

    I got an email saying my copies of Dark in Death and Say You’ll Remember Me have shipped. I can’t wait to read them. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  24. I know you’re SUPER busy this week, but just wanted to say “hope you had a good first day of school.” 🙂 Feel better soon Geybie and hope you get to sneak in some time to read for fun 😉 Have a great week, Friend!

  25. I have a few projects around the house that need to be done, but I’m waiting for the children’s basketball program I volunteer with to be over. I’ve been updating and renovating my house since I bought it and all I have left is the kitchen. I’ll have owned my home 15 years this summer so that’s not too bad since it is just me doing most of the work. Girl Who Reads

  26. I haven’t yet started a nonfiction read yet for 2018 and I feel horrible about it. I have so many on my TBR list but I just haven’t picked one to start with. Soon though! Have a great week and happy reading!

  27. I’ve done renovation work, so I hear ya on how hard it is. A few years ago, we completely gutted our kitchen and dining room, tore out a wall and now I have a new, larger kitchen. It was worth the work. I hope the same works out for you.

    I read some nonfiction, but not a lot. I’ll have to look at that book. Thanks for sharing.

    Melanie @ Hot Listens & Rabid Reads

  28. Geybie! Happy 2018!!! I’m back at home and back in the blogosphere. So nice to stop by your blog again after so long! I hope you are feeling better and that the renovations are amazing!

    Thinking of you for school next week!

    Chat again soon when I feel a little more caught up.

  29. It’s been a long time since I read something from JoJo Moyes, and I think her knew book is going to be another heartwarming story!
