It’s Tuesday and it’s been a cough cough cough week

Ugh. This past week has been a not so good one – I’ve come down with some sort of cold/cough thing that just has me beat. I finally decided to try some NyQuil last night. I really hate/love NyQuil, the way it knocks me out so easily and yet leaves me feeling so tired and hungover the next day that I wonder, was there really a point to taking it? But take it I will, so that I won’t be up at 4 coughing and coughing!

Anyway, coughs aside, it’s been a do-nothing-much kind of weekend. But there was rain! And hail!



An American Marriage – Tayari Jones
The Immortalists – Chloe Benjamin


A bit of Chicago Med and a lot of the new Queer Eye!



Well I had half of a bagel spread with kaya (coconut jam) for breakfast


Lots and lots of green tea


I think I’ll make a shepherd’s pie for dinner tonight – it’s easy to prep it ahead and bake it when we get home from tennis class this evening.

Last week:

I read:

Apparently when I’m sick the thing that helps is romance novels. I’ve disdained this genre for most of my life but I decided to come in with an open mind and I was wowed by the clever and funny writing. Consider me a fan now of Tessa Dare and Courtney Milan!

Romancing the Duke – Tessa Dare
Duchess War – Courtney Milan
The Heiress Effect – Courtney Milan

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog   and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date


  1. Oh no, that late at night sleep coughing is the worst. I hope you feel better soon. Glad you’re enjoying your comfort reading.

  2. I legitimately clapped my hands in delight that you’re now a romance fan. Try Meredith Duran! Try Alyssa Cole! I HAVE THOUSANDS OF ROMANCE RECS FOR YOU.

    Anyway, I hope you feel better, you poor thing. But for while you’re sick, read lots of awesome romance novels. I will give you recommendations literally any time. ❤
