So….It’s President’s Day
Yup, you heard right. It’s Presidents’ Day today and I’m not sure if I should be excited or not. As a kid, Presidents’ Day was great because you and your friends had the day off and since your parents had to work, that meant one thing: go hang at your friends place who has the least strict parents, raid the junk food in the pantry, drink way too many carbonated beverages and watch the R-rated movies your parents wouldn’t allow you to see. Right? Ok, maybe that was just me. But seriously, I don’t know any kids who aren’t absolutely thrilled to have a school holiday on a Monday. It really is the best.
As an adult, unless you work at a bank or have a government job (United States Postal Service, DMV, etc) you’re stuck working. And if you’re like me, your inbox is filled with emails promoting store sales, online sales, and everything in between. This is only awesome if you’ve received your tax refund and are jonesing for an excuse to buy something that’s “on sale”, or are a compulsive shopper. If you’re broke or have too much self control, then this holiday is useless. I’m not trying to be unpatriotic, I’m just confused by its purpose. Feel free to share your thoughts on this topic in our comments section below. Maybe you can convince me otherwise.
If you’re one of the lucky folks enjoying Monday off, I hope you’re lounging around in your pajamas, eating ice cream from the carton, ignoring your dreadful daytime television options and are catching up on the reading material you couldn’t finish over the weekend (that goes for Canadians enjoying Family Day as well). Cause if I had the day off, I’d be reading Evol (yup, that’s love spelled backwards) by BookRix author Jess Wygle. I love love LOVED her book Keep It Safe and was looking forward to catching up on her newer work but didn’t get the chance. Here is the book blurb that got me hooked:
What doesn’t kill you…
“I will do whatever it takes to keep us together. Nothing can keep us apart. You’re mine now.” She’d love him just as he loved her. She had to. She didn’t have a choice. In love and happily living the life she always dreamed of, Venna Caldwell doesn’t know she is the object of a secret obsession. Until one night when she’s home alone and her stalker finally acts on his fantasies, dragging her into a sadistic nightmare that she barely escapes. Running for her life, from a man who will never stop hunting her, Venna reaches out to her estranged half-brother, grasping desperately at what little hope she has left. How far will she go to keep out of the clutches of the unrelenting monster that’s hungry for her?
Can’t. Wait. To. Read. This.
