It's week 34 in our 52 Books Quest and this week is all about the number 14 Merriam Webster defines it as 'a number that is one more than thirteen'. That's it, I kid you not. Other dictionaries (real ones) state it is a cardinal number, ten plus four; equal to seven times two, or six less than twenty; a symbol 14 or XIV; a set of persons or things.
I'm still rereading and reading Ilona Andrews Guild Hunter series. Discovered I stopped after book 7 and didn't read 8 - 10 so currently reading for the first time Book 8 Magic Shifts.
"After breaking from life with the Pack, mercenary Kate Daniels and her mate—former Beast Lord Curran Lennart—are adjusting to a very different pace. While they’re thrilled to escape all the infighting, Curran misses the constant challenges of leading the shapeshifters.
So when the Pack offers him its stake in the Mercenary Guild, Curran seizes the opportunity—too bad the Guild wants nothing to do with him and Kate. Luckily, as a veteran merc, Kate can take over any of the Guild’s unfinished jobs in order to bring in money and build their reputation. But what Kate and Curran don’t realize is that the odd jobs they’ve been working are all connected.
An ancient enemy has arisen, and Kate and Curran are the only ones who can stop it—before it takes their city apart piece by piece…"
Our Saturday night movie was Jurassic World Dominion. Very enjoyable!
And It's official! Our staycation has begun. We took a week off from work for the first time in four years, maybe five, maybe six years. I can't remember. First there was the construction, then business took off, then Covid, and business is still booming. It's been a while.
We're taking advantage of the fact that this week is our anniversary, John's birthday, and James starting fall classes online. We're looking forward to a little bit of downtime, as well as furniture shopping and some garage cleaning. The garage cleaning may be put on hold is our 100 degree weather continues this week. Plus John's excited about spending a day playing in a friend's music studio.
And Yes, lots of reading will be involved as well. ~ cheers ~
