Slice of Life is a regular update on the latest in my life. This is where I write about my books, movies, tv, food, fashion, family or whatever subjects are on my mind that week. It’s just a little glimpse of my slice.

  1. This song has turned into our anthem for Summer of ’19. The entire soundtrack from that movie is so good.
  2. I recently posted my favorite books of the year (so far). Looking forward to checking out everyone’s else’s lists. Here, here and here are several really good ones!
  3. We are in the middle of a bit of a busy time with summer day camp, a couple family road trips, visiting family and a few other fun activities. During this time, I am focusing more on family and friends and also unplugging a bit. If you miss me or want to see what I am cooking and reading on vacation, come see me on Instagram.

On the Blog this Week:

Summer Vacation: Time to Unplug a Bit – I am a planner….I may or may not be absent, but just in case I am not able to keep up, this is why.

Top Ten Tuesday: Books on My Summer TBR – The real list is waaaay longer but here are 15 books (I could not do just 10) that I plan on reading this summer.

Currently Reading:

Still working on Inheritance (E-book, Kindle app) and Celine (E-book, Libby app). Liking both of them but life is just busy right now.

Just Finished:

No recent books finished to report.

Did Not Finish:

No DNFs to report this week!

Likely Up Next:

I found a hardback copy of the second book in Ann Cleeves’s Shetland series, Wild Fire, on a recent trip to the library so hope to get to it next.

Listening to:

Still working my way through The Which Way Tree (amazing story about a young boy and his sister in Texas around the time of the Civil War). I got it through the Library (Libby app) and just had to renew it because I don’t seem to be having as much time to listen to books with my current summer schedule. It is lucky there is not a long list of people waiting for it. (Weird because it really is so good!) Hoping some upcoming road trips will give me more time to listen. I foresee that I will be writing more about this one soon.

Recent TBR Additions:

A Killing in the Hills is the first in an Appalachian mystery series by Julia Keller that I recently heard about on Instagram. After reading and loving Daisy Jones and the Six, I am wanting to start reading some of Taylor Jenkins Reid’s backlist titles. The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo is the next one on my list.

What is happening in your slice?
