Morning Meanderings… Keep Your Friends Close. Seriously.


Thursday!  Slowly but steadily chugging along towards the weekend.  Yesterday was productive and today should be too.  I am getting a little reading in and a little more audio these days.  I am actually excited that this Saturday I have an hour and a half drive which means audio time!  That is when I get the big chunks in and I love it!

1ddCurrently I am listening to Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly and really enjoying it!  When Natty leaves town to be by her daughter’s side when she becomes ill on a school trip, Natty rushed to be by her side.  Thankfully Eve, Natty’s best friend offers to come and stay at the house to help with Natty’s other daughter.  Yet when Natty returns, she finds that Eve has taken to her family a little too well and her husband Shawn has fallen in love with her.  It is sooooogood!


I am reading New Uses For Old Boyfriends and while it is more of a chick lit lite read, I am liking the 20130910_185511easiness of it. When Lila Alders life implodes, she finds herself back in Black Dog Bay where she grew up.  When she finds that her mother is much in the same boat having dwindled the families fortune into the red it is up to Lila to start putting both of their lives back together.  It is fun if a familiar synopsis.



Come to think of it, if you combined the books after Natty gets done with Eve, she could take Lila’s place and continue on into the next book….lol.  Both are good in different ways but isn’t that what makes for good reading?


Today will be another good catch up day, I should get pretty caught up with projects if I stay steady.  Lots of balls in the air but I think… I got this. 😉


Reading anything good?

  1. I read New Uses for Old Boyfriends – it was good. I just finished The Girls of Mischief Bay by Susan Mallery – very good!!

  2. Thursday is lovely because you now Friday is around the corner 😉 Enjoy the day. I am at work and then there is a late track practice for the girl but I am reading The Book of Strange New Things at lunch with my yummy pasta leftovers so all is good.

  3. I read KEEP YOUR FRIENDS CLOSE last year. Um, yes. A little creepy for sure. Don’t you just kind of want to take a baseball bat to Eve. 😉

    • I liked that Eve was a true villain… so often as of late the bad person is wishy washy and its hard to guess their motive but Eve was a hot mess. 😀

  4. This is my third encounter with New Uses for Old Boyfriends this morning! 🙂
    I’m glad you’re enjoying it, Sheila. I have just started reading The Fever, which I’ve wanted to read for a while!

  5. Just finished Reykjavik Nights by Arnaldur Indridason (hope I spelled that Right) wasn’t takento with I it at first…. But luv’d it. Wonderful back story or sidestory about Iceland. Next up is Girl on the train, or Punishment by linden McIntyre.
