It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
I am still here! It's been a busy month or two. My parents' 40th anniversary was last month so my sister and I threw a party for them. Then we surprised them the following weekend with a family trip to Tybee Island in Georgia. We had a wonderful time! We drove into Savannah one day and it is gorgeous in the spring time with the azaleas blooming. I got my hands on some of my mom's old family photo albums for the party so I've been working on scanning those pictures before I give them back. My husband has also started a new job and he's completely off of night shifts. Yay! It's great to have him home with me every night! We're working to balance "me time" and "us time" now though.
That said, I haven't posted since March 1. Holy cow. I did write one review, then I realized the book isn't published until June. Oops. It's scheduled but that didn't help me look like any less of a slacker.

I've offered to read the first draft of my friend's urban fantasy novel and give feedback. I've been slacking on that too and need to get it read by Thursday for her. Everything else will be on hold until I finish that! Luckily I'm one of several beta readers and she's not pressuring us but I still want to get it done. I read the first chapter or so a while ago and I think this is going to be fantastic!
