Look what happened now...
Ready, Set, Jet!
Back to the beach...
I have my toes in the sand and you can't make me come inside!
I promise a proper post soon~
How is July almost over?? This summer is flying by and on that subject, I popped into a shop today and was shocked to see the Halloween candy out! OMG! (Insert pumpkin here, lol) As crazy as that was I did manage to only buy one Halloween themed thing....
But before we go there...lets talk about summer reads. I stumbled upon this book:
This book is a political action thriller, written by Jack Carr. It's not my typical read, but I think stepping out of your comfort zone and reading other genres is necessary. (After all we can only read so many vampire novels before growing bored, lol!) This is book four in this series and Amazon is developing it into a series starring Chris Pratt. So I did come in late to this party, but....
The Devil's Hand: A Thriller (Terminal List Book 4)
Set in modern day, with tech (I liked) politics (I didn't) this isn't my favorite genre. I do read some spy novels but this feels way too political for my taste. Covid, wine snobs, the author's extremely thinly-veiled political points and other themes I don't want in a book I read for pure escapism. I think for some people this will be a MUST read for the summer, but not for me.
Stay tuned for more reviews!
Hi! How are you?
If you are bored and want a blast of travel goodness, scenery from the southwest and picture of critters, I got you. Check out my "shorts" playlist for that and more random goodness!
Most clips are under 30 seconds and should shift your mood and maybe even inspire you to travel.
Hope your summer is going well and you are not melting! It's been really hot here. One of those summers where New Mexico is on fire (seriously) and it's even hotter in south Texas. I stayed at a hotel last week and was chatting with other hotel guests about the heat and one actually said, "Welcome to HELL!"
Err, okay. Thanks for that.
I drove to the Gulf Coast for a week and it was actually COOLER there than LONDON. WTF? How is that even possible?
But enough going on about the weather, I am pleased to share a new book review with you. This week I read The Sentinel a Jack Reacher, novel by Lee Child and Andrew Child.
Read on for my quick review.
This is book number 25 in the Jack Reacher series. At the time of this writing there are currently 27 novels published and a feature movie (2012) as well as an Amazon series (2022 -?)

My Last Minute Thoughts:
Its HOT outside...
I am currently in south Texas (I came for the heat wave it would seem) and while I was riding the lift with another traveler their parting words were, "Welcome to HELL!" They weren't talking about the hotel (Its okay) the heat though was breaking records...
