Wednesday Reads

Not much to report since Monday. Hubby is still improving each day and I still can’t cook him a meal he can eat (I knew there was a reason I didn’t cook – haha!). He did go into work on Monday, but not yesterday. Plans to go today (we’ll see). In the meantime, he’s showing me what life could be like if he retires without a project.

He’s definitely gonna need a project.

Here’s what I read the past week:

Apr 24: “The Beast” by J.R. Ward, #14 in the Black Dagger Brotherhood series, a paranormal romance at 508 pages. Blurb from book: Nothing is as it used to be for the Black Dagger Brotherhood. After avoiding war with the Shadows, alliances have shifted and lines have been drawn. The slayers of the Lessening Society are stronger than ever, preying on human weakness to acquire more money, more weapons, more power. But as the Brotherhood readies for an all-out attack on them, one of their own fights a battle within himself… For Rhage, the Brother with the biggest appetites but also the biggest heart, life was supposed to be perfect—or, at the very least, perfectly enjoyable. Mary, his beloved shellan, is by his side, and his King and his brothers are thriving. But Rhage can’t understand—or control—the panic and insecurity that plague him… And that terrifies him—as well as distances him from his mate. After suffering a mortal injury in battle, Rhage must reassess his priorities—and the answer, when it comes to him, rocks his world…and Mary’s. But Mary is on a journey of her own—one that will either bring them closer together or cause a split that neither will recover from…. Joy and happiness. That’s what I felt when I reached the end. Ever since I met Rhage in this series, he’s been one of my favorites. It was so nice to revisit him. As well as a lot of other characters, because it’s never just about one couple. Oh no. Many story lines are being told and I can’t wait to continue with the next book. And no, I wouldn’t call them cliff hangers. More like…hope. I hope to read more about them. This is one of my most favorite series ever.

So… Do you read series books? Got a favorite?

Happy Reading!

Can he swallow food? Like mush?

I'm sure anything he has probably doesn't have much appeal right now.

My hubby once had major dental work and had to live on food he could suck through a straw for a week. He was miserable.

Maria - He can swallow as long as it's slow (part of his pallet was removed and if he swallows too fast, liquid will go up his nose) and he prefers to eat soft, wet food (apparently the food I make is too dry). He has trouble chewing because of swelling inside his cheek and the fact he can't open his mouth as wide as before (he needs to exercise that and I'm not sure he is). But each day he improves, and he did go into work today. Don't expect him to stay much past lunch, though.

I don't go out of my way to read series books for the most part, unless it's a series I hear really, really, really good things about.

I hope your husband is not in any pain. That's probably the biggest thing that gets in the way of doing his exercises, wanting to eat, etc.

Jeff - He is in pain when the medication wears off, so he takes advantage of eating after it's kicked in. Of course, he's usually sleepy then. Vicious cycle.

Oh my goodness. Sorry he's having a hard time eating, still. Yikes. Hope it gets better for him.
