At the moment I just take a day at a time. I am feeling much better and somewhat like myself again and this is getting better by the day. The problem is just that I am so tired that I mostly sleep when I am not at work.
However I have started reading again and I writing reviews so new posts will show up here again. And ofcourse I still have some giveaways that need winners and I will get to them soon.
I hope everything will be back to normal soon, but as I said I'll just take it day by day.
At the moment I am reading The Sentinal Wars series by Shannon K. Butcher and I am enjoying them a lot. I am currently half way through Running Scared. Now I just need to order the rest of the books in this series because I am affraid I am hooked. And it has been a long time since I felt that way about a series....

Master spy Will Cochrane must catch a missing Russian defector as well as one of Europe’s deadliest assassins in this action-packed follow-up to Sentinel, written by real life former field officer Matthew Dunn.
Will Cochrane monitors the nighttime streets of Gdansk, Poland—waiting for the appearance of a Russian defector, a man bearing a top secret document, who Will believes is about to step out of the cold and into the hands of Polish authorities. But suddenly everything goes sideways. The target shows up, but so does a team from Russian Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) hell-bent on keeping the man from walking. Then, in a hail of crossfire, a van speeds into the melee and snatches the defector out from under them all. Everyone wants the man and the codes he carries—but now he’s gone and it’s up to Will and his CIA/MI6 team to find him before the Russians.
Will tracks both the missing Russian and his kidnappers, believing the defector has his own warped agenda. But soon it’s apparent that the real perpetrator could be someone much more powerful: a former East German Stasi officer who instigated a super-secret pact between Russian and US generals almost twenty years ago. An agreement, which if broken for any reason, was designed to unleash the world’s deadliest assassin.
Then Will learns that the Russians have tasked their own ‘spycatcher’—an agent just as ruthless and relentless as Will—to retrieve the document. Now Will knows that he faces two very clever and deadly adversaries, who will stop at nothing to achieve their aims.
I always van enjoy a good spy novel. For one reason it is ok to read them out of order in series. This is the third book in the series but it is not a problem in this case, but after reading Slingshot I will check out the other books in this series because I really liked this one.
Lately I hardly can find the time to read. I am either working or sleeping and I am way behind on my reading. So when I heard of the Wicked Wildfire Read-a-Thon, hosted by April @ My Shelf Confessions, starting on the day of my vacation, I knew I had to join and try to catch up.
Since this is my vacation I am going to try and read 7 books this week, a book a day.
I will updat this post with the books that I read.

What should a woman do if she believes she is the mother of the second coming of Christ? This is the problem Lara Joyner faces when she comes to believe, through her visions, through the look on his face, through her cards, and through the thousands of hidden signs she sees in nature, that her son is Christ incarnate.Incarnate is driven by this woman’s character and readers struggle between wanting to sympathize and knowing she is deeply troubled. In the end, we discover how her delusion turns many worlds upside down, as well as how faith overpowers reason. The story follows Lara and her two sons as she pushes Dale to perform miracles and save humanity. Although obviously unable to do so, he goes through the motions to protect his little brother Louis. Told alternately from Lara’s perspective (in the present tense) and from the other principles in the story, the plot follows the trials brought on by Lara’s spiraling madness, her husband’s desperate search for his family, and the children’s bewilderment and fear.
Incarnate is about Lara, amother of two, who believes her oldest son is the second coming of Christ. Her delusion makes her push him into performing miracles.
