Check in post & Challenge update.

So January hasn’t been a good month for many reasons, the biggest being I had to send my beautiful furbaby Cricket over the Rainbow Bridge, it was unexpected which made it even worse and has made it a tough start to the year emotionally.

It has also meant my mind has struggled to read much, so I only managed to read 8 books this month.

I managed to cross a couple of items off the challenges:

The Sunday Bookclub challengeA YA novel – Fish Out of Water by Kate Hendrick. A book by an Australian author – I read three of these – Roommate Arrangement by Saxon James, Clouds on the Horizon by Penelope Janu and Fish Out of Water by Kate Hendrick.

The Dymocks Reading ChallengeA Love Story – All the books except A Fish Out of Water. Australian Author – I read three of these – Roommate Arrangement by Saxon James, Clouds on the Horizon by Penelope Janu and Fish Out of Water by Kate Hendrick. Released this year – All 8 were released this year. Feel-good – His Boy to Ride by Jamie Luther was probably my most feel-good read.

In happier news, I adopted a beautiful 2-year-old Mastiff cross girl from the pound, she’s very timid and scared of everything, but getting a bit braver each day. My house felt so lonely without my beautiful Cricket and although I miss her every day and have at least one cry a day, my heart is happier having Suki to come home to. She has definitely made herself at home.

I’m reading a few really great books at the moment, I’ve nearly finished the thrilling new release Wild Dogs by Michael Trant, so look out for that review in the next few days. I’m reading/listening to one for my book club that I’m not really getting into, which is a shame because it had some great reviews, but we can’t all like the same things.

Until next time happy reading.

    1. Thank you Tracey, I’m still having a cry daily, I miss her so much. Suki is just beautiful, but she’s not Cricket, though I’m sure I’ll love her just as much.

    1. I think she will, it’s a lot less lonely, I still wish it were Cricket here, but it can’t be, so I’ll give another dog a loving home. She’s afraid of everything, but I think she’ll slowly adjust. She’s certainly made herself at home.

        1. She’s pretty happy with me, not so happy if I have a visitor. If they are sitting down she’s better, but doesn’t like it if they stand, she goes and hides in the lounge. If we’re out she only allows people with dogs to come close.
