Abducted by Sunday in bed with...7.1.12

Happy Sunday Everybody!

Kate, midnight book girl, hosts a meme every Sunday for us to say what books we are spending the morning with, or wish we were spending the morning with!

Here is mine...

A couple of days ago was having a BOGO sale on some of their books. For one credit you could get two downloads. I searched through all the titles and the only one I really really wanted to get was Odd Hours by Dean Koontz, but I still had to find a second book. So in the end I chose Maybe This Time by Jennifer Crusie because it seemed harmless enough and I was attracted to the bright red cover (which now seems pretty dumb since I downloaded the book and don't actually get to look at the cover, but oh well).

The book is about this ex couple, Andy and North, who divorced 10 years ago and now Andy wants to get remarried but before she can do so she has to sever all ties to North. When she goes to see him, he asks her to do him this huge favor. Apparently some distant relatives have a house out in the middle of nowhere and the adults in the family have recently died leaving behind two kids. The children absolute refuse to leave the house and North needs someone to go and evaluate the situation and try to get the kids to want to leave. When Andy gets to the house, however, we start to learn that there is a chance the house is haunted....and that is about as far as I've got so far.

Yes, you do have to suspend your beliefs to think that it is perfectly normal that a guy would ask his ex-wife to go check on his cousins and that the said ex-wife would actually agree to something like that. But when you listen to it, or read it, it is easy to get past and so far I'm finding the book to be enjoyable.

I had a little bit of extra time this morning because I don't have to leave for church until just after 10, but instead of spending my morning in bed listening to the book, I decided to get up and make myself an awesome breakfast (while listening to the book)...

Cantaloupe, eggs with tomatoes and green peppers, and two blueberry muffins, plus coffee in my Sagittarius mug! Yum!

In other news, last week I challenged myself to write 7 posts in 7 days to make up for taking almost the entire month of June off from my blog, and unfortunately I failed! I was actually doing a good job and managed to get three meme posts up along with three full reviews! But when I came home from work yesterday I was distracted by a project in my house and then I settled down to watch the West Wing and completely forgot to write my last post!

Oh, well, missing 1 out of 7 isn't too bad so I'm proud of myself!

Have a happy Sunday everybody!

I love Maybe This Time, and I loved the romance between the exes, very Philadelphia Story. I'm glad that's your get one free book, and hopefully you'll like it!!

I haven't heard of that book but it sounds interesting! I'll be looking forward to your review! And I think you did pretty darn good for that challenge! It's hard enough for me to write a post every other day! ;) Hope you have a great Sunday!

Is she a psychiatrist? CRAP I TOTALLY MISSED THE BOGO SALE. Your breakfast looks remarkable... want to cook for me? :) And it's intense to post seven posts in seven days unless you really plan ahead. I almost always schedule things in advance.

Your breakfast looks delicious! 1 out of 7 missed posts isn't bad, especially since The West Wing was involved. I've read a few of Jennifer Cruise's books but not this one. I can't wait to hear what you think about it.
