Sunday Salon

All that I can say this week is thank goodness that Google Blogger allows me to write posts ahead of time and "schedule" them to be posted, or else I don't think that anything would have been posted by me this week. I had an "episode" with a tooth that's been bothering me for a long time earlier this week. I've been trying (unsuccessfully!) to deny the fact that I needed to see a dentist ASAP, but after spending the majority of Tuesday in bed crying from being in so much pain, I finally put on my big girl panties and made an appointment. $320, one pulled tooth, and one temporary filling later (I'll be going back in July for a very expensive root canal), I'm feeling better than I was on Tuesday, but am still in a bit of post-tooth-pulling pain. As my hubby reminded me, though, I would rather have a little pain than a lot of pain, so I should be thankful that I'll soon be pain-free. I did manage to get some "comfort" reading done, though. When I'm in pain or craving some comfort I often turn to chick lit or women's fiction to help me feel better, as evidenced by the books that I read this week.

What I'm Reading Now:
So Much For That by Lionel Shriver- This book has surprised me so far. Intelligent and witty, it contains both political and social commentary while telling an important story.

What I Read Last Week:
Rumour Has It by Jill Mansell- For an upcoming Sourcebooks blog tour
A Corner of Universe by Rebbie Macintyre
The Icing on the Cupcake by Jennifer Ross

What I Reviewed Last Week:
A Gift From Brittany by Marjorie Price

Be sure to stop by next week as I'll be reviewing Karen White's newest release, On Folly Beach, and giving away two copies! Have a great week, everyone!


  1. Ouch! I hope you are feeling better soon.

  2. My daughter had the same experience last month. Sorry you had to go through all that.
