Happy Veteran’s Day tomorrow to all the Vets out there! To celebrate, I had a nice lunch with my Dad on Friday. We usually go out for lunch once a month when I’m off in the summer, so it was nice to sneak in a day during the school year.

Last week I had parent teacher conferences. Those always make for a LONG day. Full day of work then conferences from 3-8. This week I have a meeting every day after school so its another week of long days. But, Thanksgiving it coming soon and with it almost a week off.

I haven’t been reading as much. Most of the reviews I’ve shared recently are books I read a while back. Now I have reached the point where I have nothing read for upcoming reviews and I can’t seem to get into the headspace to read. I think its stress related. I have been clenching my jaw so hard I get terrible headaches. I don’t even realize I’m doing it until my head is pounding and my jaw feels like I spent the day chewing rubber non stop. I have an appointment with my shrink on Tuesday so I am hoping maybe she has some ideas on how I can stop. Seriously, I’m afraid I’m going to break my jaw.

I am finding myself branching out from romances. I have been listening to some thrillers and suspense audios. I have listened to The Guardians, Private, and Invisible by James Patterson and they were great. Now I’m listening to Turn of the Key by Ruth Ware and so far, its pretty great too! So, hit me up with your recs if you have books similar to these. I love legal thrillers!

So, whats new with you this week? Did you read any of the same books I did? Did you find any great book deals I need to grab ASAP? Let me know in the comments!

  1. Sorry to hear you are so stressed out. Sounds like you have a lot going on at work. I hope the upcoming break and your doctor’s appointment can bring you some relief. Look at you reading outside romance, and enjoying it. That’s great!

  2. Samantha I hope your shrink will be able to ease your stress! But you have long days and busy weeks! Plus with your hearing problems and all maybe now is a little bit too much!

  3. OMG I listened to the TUrn of the Key by Ruth Ware a few weeks ago and it was SO GOOD! I hope you love it as much as I did. Sorry about the headaches and jaw-clenching. I hope the shrink is able to help 🙂

    And your previous and current week teaching is exactly why I’ve decided I have to make a career switch. It’s so many late nights and bringing work home – I don’t know how to balance it and being a good mom, or at least the mom I want to be. No judgement on those moms who work those hours, it’s just not for me anymore! I hope this week is the last of long hours before your holiday break. Have a good one 🙂

    • Yeah, teaching has certainly NOT been kind to me. But, honestly, I don’t know what else I could do. I mean, I graduated in 2003 with my BA and the economy was getting crappy and by the time I got my teaching license in 2007 it was in the tank. Now I have a BA in History, MEd in Middle Childhood education, and licenure in k-12 special ed, TESOL, and Reading along with my 4-9 Social Studies and Science.

  4. I hope things improve for you and your stress is less. I’m a big fan of thrillers / mysteries. The ones which come to mind are Karin Slaughter, William Kent Krueger, David Baldacci, and Kelly Armstrong’s Rockton series. Oddly, I have listened to all of these on audio. It’s a favorite genre so I am sure I can think of more. Take a moment for yourself and dream of the Thanksgiving break!

  5. Sorry to hear you’re suffering stress related physical pains. Hope you get some relief!

    Glad to see you loved The Bromance Book Club, too! When I read a lot of romances and need a change thrillers are a great change of pace. The Girl in Red was a fun end-of-the-world sort of read. The audio was wonderful!

  6. Soul Crushing Meeting lol. So true!!!

    Hope you have a good week in spite of the long conference days! That sounds exhausting.

    I like a good thriller. It’s funny I never used to read ’em and now I read a ton of them, seems like!

  7. I hope you find a way to reduce your stress levels.
    There are a lot of great Romantic suspense series you might like to try, like Laura Griffin’s Tracer series, and of course JD Robbs In Death series

    Wishing you a great reading week

  8. Sounds like work has been extra busy… and stressful. I hope you can find some relief from the stress (and all the jaw clenching and headaches). Sometimes branching out from the usual genre is fun. I don’t do it often but once in a while I pick a (light) fantasy or a domestic drama and it’s a nice switch-up from the norm. I think we’re both counting the days until the Thanksgiving break!
