So I didn't make it last week

Ok, so I didn't make my goal of catching up last week. I'm amazed at how quickly life can pass by. One of my excuses is I went to the LUW Writing Conference this weekend in SLC. Fabulous. I loved it, met a lot of wonderful people and learned a ton. Now I'm really gunho about getting my WIP polished and ready to go. So I'm starting new this week. Here's one book I finished awhile ago.

Artemis Fowl: The Atlantis Complex by Eion Colfer. I remember really enjoying the Artemis Fowl series and figured I stick with it. The story was a good, quick read that was just fun. It's interesting to think what would happen if our subconscious decided to take over. I enjoyed Colfer's take on that and how Artemis' friends had to deal without him to save the world this time. I would recommend this book for all ages as a good, fun read.

I'll do more later, but I'm really excited to get working on my book. So TTFN! (I had someone ask me what that meant today. Anyone know? I do, I'm just curious if anyone else does. :)

Enjoy the Ride!

Once again I had all the wonderful plans to get all caught up on book reviews and life happens. Actually it helped me put life into perspective. We had a good friend of my husband's pass away this week. He's been transferred to three different hospitals and was finally called home. We helped with everything we could and participated in a wonderful Celebration of Life for him on Thursday.

Needless-to-say my focus hasn't been on book reviews. It was another reminder of how precious life is and how quickly we can be called home. Cherish those you love. Tell them you love them. Don't let anything go unsaid. You never know what the future holds. Don't live with any regrets and enjoy life. It's quite a journey, enjoy the ride.

So I am setting the goal to do one book review a day until I'm all caught up-with the disclaimer that if anything else happens this will be the thing on the back burner. Prayerfully we will have a break from such an emotional week and I will be able to fulfill that goal. :)
