Wow! It's been awhile since I've had enough free time to post. This has been a very different year for Tutu. RL (Real Life) has been overtaking my priorities, and while I've been reading at a steady pace, I'm not reading as many books, and find, after everything else happening, that I don't have the mental energy to drum up a decent review. I know I should be reviewing some very good books to get the word out, and hope to do a series of "shout outs" soon to let you know about a few I've come across.
To very patient publishers who have granted me access to e-galleys, my apologies. I'm trying to give you input via the Net Galley or Edelweiss feedback forms. If I'm not posting a review about a book you offered, it's probably because it didn't interest me enough to finish it. AND THERE HAVE BEEN A LOT OF THOSE LATELY. I'm not sure if it's me, or if it's just a shift in writing styles and subjects, but I'm finding less and less about which to enthuse.
In the meantime, I've been dealing with family on both coasts - 2 deaths, auto accidents, serious illnesses, lost jobs, and long distance eldercare issues. I want to give a huge public thank you to my sisters and sisters-in-law all over the country for all the support they've been giving. To my children and their spouses and three gorgeous fun-loving grandchildren, special hugs and kisses for keeping the joy in my life. Finally a special thank you and huge heart full of love to my husband for his gorgeous sense of humor, fantastic emotional support, and all the wonderful "honey-do's" he does for all of us.
Hope your holiday season is full of joy and blessings.
