It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #weeklyrecap #orangecountyreaders

Here’s a brief look at the books I read last week and the week ahead.

🆒 I’m having a giveaway on my Instagram page! USA friends – click here.

Last Week:

Check out NINE 9️⃣ new posts last week…

Book Reviews posted for FOUR 4️⃣ books. (Links to my reviews)

The Curiosities | More Than Words | The Girls at 17 Swann Street | The Silent Patient

I finished TWO 2️⃣ books last week.

The Last Romantics was my favorite of the two. I’ll have my full reviews posted this week.

Blog Notes:

Last Tuesday I reached another milestone on the blog! Tuesdays are definitely my biggest traffic days.

I had a few snafus around the Pro upgrade but after a few minutes chatting with their 24/7 support- situation resolved!

I’m at 30k monthly views on Pinterest…whatever that means. According to the analytics, what I really want/need is clicks! Are there any pros out there with advice?

Currently Reading:

I’m almost finished with WWLC and it’s been a wild ride with the beautiful Beatriz Perez.

I’m SO looking forward to meeting Chanel Cleeton, Camille diMaio and Susan Meissner this April for an evening of history and culture at the San Diego Women’s Museum. Click here for more details and tickets.

ICYMI:

Did you hear? An author of a very popular book might be a compulsive liar and a narcissistic idiot. The book community is up in arms about his lies and the alleged coverup by the publisher. It does sound fishy but… does all this really affect your enjoyment of the book? Do you always know the personal lives of the authors you read? It’s definitely something to ponder.

Here’s the article from The New Yorker.

The Week Ahead:

It’s Valentine’s Day on Thursday! I’m hoping we can get a dinner in sometime – even after 18 years of married life, it’s still important to make time to celebrate love. 💕💕

We have a long weekend off for Presidents Weekend and I HAVE TWO BOOK EVENTS I’M VERY EXCITED ABOUT!

QOTD: Tell me something good! What are you most looking forward to this week?


Hope you have a week that makes your heart ❤️ happy!

Love, Jaymi
