Non-book post: Lolsob everything's breaking

One of my electrical outlets stopped working last night - even the test and reset buttons wouldn't work. But I lucked out and got the really good maintenance guy and it's fixed now.

 

Next up: internet problems. My speed dropped to about a sixth of what it should be last night before finally becoming nonfunctional. This morning, it was working again, but super slow. I now have an appointment tomorrow morning for someone to come by and hopefully fix it (could've done today, but I'm expected to be at the library), but with social distancing procedures it's going to be interesting to say the least. The company currently has a policy where they start with seeing whether it's an issue outside your building, and if it turns out to be something they'd normally have to go inside for, they'll leave equipment on your doorstep and then talk you through what to do over the phone. If you can't manage to fix it with help over the phone, they reschedule you for another visit "at a later date." Not sure when that'd be, or whether you'd still be expected to pay your normal internet bill in the meantime. Crossing my fingers really hard that it's an issue that can be fixed outside.

Silent Surrender (The Royal Heirs Book 1) by: Lizabeth Scott
Silent Surrender (The Royal Heirs Book 1) - Lizabeth Scott

 

 

 

 

Silent Surrender by Lizabeth Scott

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


Silent Surrender is a beautiful blessing. Cres and Lis mark the first time in my reading experience that I had to pick my heart up off the floor. Going in I didn't know what to expect, but Scott rattled my emotions and gave me a story that I won't soon forget. Cres may be a heartbreaker, but it's Lis who is the star of the show. Life has not always been kind and she has been forced to face many challenges, yet it's her fighting spirit that drew me in. Silent Surrender is a lesson of hope that may sometimes feel like a fairytale, but never loses sight of it's heart.

Bookish Post...

So, erm, yes, a book haul may have happened recently...and the first lot of books has arrived over the last few days.

I mean, it's not that I need books because I am running out any time soon (haha), but ... I've been wanting to read more about and by Ellen Wilkinson ever since reading her The Division Bell Mystery

I also needed a paper copy of The Freaks of Mayfair because the audiobook I have of this is horrible and I think E.F. Benson may work better in actual book form here.

Lastly, Based on a True Story is - I think - a contemporary thriller, but I don't actually know much about it (and want to keep it this way). I simply look forward to it because French contemporary thrillers are outwith my usual reading habits. It's an adventure if you like.

 

There will be a second lot of books at some point. I may have gone a bit wild.

I'm sorry, I struggled!
 Forever (Always & Forever Book 2) Kindle Edition - Kindle Alexander
*verified purchase April 2020* I loved Always, and I waited for so long for this, the followup, so very long. And I struggled. It took me 2 months to read this, I had to read a little bit at a time, because I found it such hard work and I have no flipping idea WHY! It is a lovely story, I did love the feathers thing. Both Robert and Landon have their say. I just . . . don't know! I did finish it though, so . . 3 stars **same worded review will appear elsewhere**
