Truly Quiet

I have a theory that a day spent at home lasts longer than a day spent out. Today I tested that theory out.

Exercise:

I won the contest again this week and chose a nice little spin around Sasamat Lake. It was gorgeous out and while my running buddy had a tough run we still did better than we would have in the past!

Reading:

I have to admit to lazing on couch reading almost the entire day; I did have a two hour nap midafternoon to break up the reading🤣

I finished Pride and Prejudice and Passports which was a NetGalley book that I actually requested after it had already been published.

A modern retelling of the classic Pride and Prejudice story. Elisa is from an immigrant family that has struggled through life while Darcy has inherited power and influence. Can they find common ground?

A very well-done retelling set in present political times and with appropriate social issues. I loved the characters; well at the beginning I really didn’t like either of them but that just means they were really well written! I liked how they came together and how the story stayed true to the original while still making it relevant in the 21st century.

Thank you to NetGalley, the publisher and the author for the free ARC in exchange for an honest review.

I have also almost made it through my next NetGalley book called Getting Hot With the Scot. 🤣 it’s been cute so far.

Well that’s all I’ve done today!

Have fun!
