What is in the water?

Yesterday, I had the day off. Well... not really. I had a jury duty summons but I was "on call". While I was running my errands and getting stuff done, I received a picture text from a friend. This picture text displayed her 1 year old son in his crib. On the crib, an eviction notice was posted with the due date of the new baby on it. Say what! I flipped. I was so excited! I know she has been wanting to get pregnant again and it finally happened.

As the day progressed, I realized that there HAS to be something in the water at work. Remember when I told you about my baby nightmare dream? Not only are friends outside of work getting pregnant, but I have had one women give birth, 2 (NOW 3) women who announced that they were pregnant within the last 3 months. This is crazy. I now refuse to eat or drink anything at work.

I kid.

I kid.

I am so excited for these babies! Oh yeah!

And now to distract myself from all these babies, I will open my Kindle and read! This past week has been good for my reading challenge. I have added a few books to my list! I know I have not updated recently (I mean my last reading post was more than a month ago...) but I have been trying to read.

If you look through the list, check out the "star rating" that I gave them on Goodreads. As I mentioned in my last post,

Anything with:
4+ stars means I LOVED the book. 
3 stars means I wouldn't recommend the book but didn't hate it. I could at least read the whole thing. 
2 stars means I finished it but it was a struggle. Would definitely not recommend it. 
1 star means I hated it and was not able to finish it. 

Now, a few of the books below have 3+ stars. I do not just hand out 5 stars.

 Drawn by Lilliana Anderson is one of the books that I rated 5 stars. Guys, this book... I don't even know what to say about it. It is intense. You see the characters and you realize the obsession behind their actions. You realize that it is wrong. But you want them to continue. It reminds me of Fifty Shades of Grey without the BDSM. I finished this book within a few hours. I could not put it down. I never really give book reviews because I know I am horrible at giving them. All I know is that I could not put this book down. It played with my emotions. I could feel the heat in my cheeks whenever someone did something embarrassing or someone was heartbroken. It's a book that I would definitely recommend!

  Pick it up! It's free on Amazon. <==== I made the link really long so you would not have any problems clicking to get your copy of the book!

  1. Look at your book list, girl! You rock! :)

  2. Unplanned pregnancies have been going on around here, hopefully I don't catch that bug!

  3. Hmm, my comment seems to have disappeared. Love all the reading you've been doing! And babies! It's definitely getting to be that time in our lives where all the people have all the babies. All my doctor's seem to be getting pregnant ... le sigh.


I love comments and definitely enjoy reading them. Please be kind! :)
