I’m alive, and a book review…


WHOA. I know you guys probably thought that I died and/or fell off the face of the earth- but I didn’t. While you’ve all been pining in front of your computers for another one of my amazing, enlightening, life-altering posts (too much?), I’ve been out and about doing my thang at work and home.

I’ll spare you the boring details of my professional life, but I’ll give you all a quick recap of what went on this month.

1.) Annual cousin float trip

2.) Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure

3.) A dear friend’s wedding

4.) My college roommate visiting after having been separated for 6 years!!!

6.) Annndd this:

and now this:

I’m obsessed. Someone  SERIOUSLY come dump a bucket of ice on my face and pry these books out of my (now freezing cold – because of the ice) fingers. This is book ONE of TEN. I’ve read three in two days. I told you – I have a problem. I haven’t slept, I’ve barely eaten, and all I can think about all day long at work is “Wow, Merit’s such a badass”, “I really love the character development in these books”, “Will Ethan and Merit get together, or won’t they?” SOMEONE MAKE IT STOP!!!!! AHH!!

Okay, in all real seriousness though, these books are super good. Most urban romance/fantasy books can be a little hard for me to stomach – but this series is so different. I actually really like Merit and don’t want to punch her in the “I’m a damsel in distress and can’t think for myself” face.

Anywho, this weekend isn’t full of much. Ryan is out of town fishing (or as I like to call it – his “man-cation”) so Riley and I get the house all to ourselves all weekend. Tomorrow entails some serious pool-time (it’s been CRAZY hot here in the Lou lately – 108 degrees yesterday), and a sushi/Magic Mike girls night out tomorrow night. If there’s anything more that I love than laying out by a pool all day and reading/relaxing, it’s eating sushi and watching half naked men on a gigantic screen with some of my besties.

Have a great weekend! 😀


About Running and Riley

Hello! My name is Julie. I'm a mother, working professional, aspiring runner, dancing and music addict, and general goof ball. I'm by no means a professional blogger...or writer...or photographer (wait, why am I blogging again? Just kidding!), so please excuse the many grammatical errors that are sure to appear on my little blog. I started runningandriley to chronicle some of my life's events, keep track of my workouts, and maybe inspire a few people along the way to live every day to the fullest! So welcome and I hope you join me on this journey! Love, Julie
