Ups and Downs, a real roller-coaster...

The post title says it all. Work is a real roller-coaster... sometimes, everything is going well and others, it goes all wrong. This is the second week-end that I had to come in to work on Saturday. I don't mind, but I'd prefer to stay home and read... so I hope this is the last time in a while. At least, we're figuring things out... It's just soo frustrating when one day it works and the other, it doesn't. Also, he keeps comparing the results to last year... At least, my comfort is that the professor is not doing much better. Aside from the experiment not working, everything is good though... I'm getting used at managing the lab and ordering stuff. Seriously, who would have thought ordering stuff was sooo complicated! Also, the prices are insane!!! It's ridiculous!!

So as usual, when I'm not happy, I went to cheer myself up by buying books :) It also helps that I had 5$ off coupons :) Let see what are my new treasures...

- Jinx by Jennifer Estep
- Line of Scrimmage by Marie Force
- Melusine and The Virtu by Sarah Monette
- You Had Me at Good-bye and That's (Not Exactly) Amore by Tracey Bateman
- A Lady Betrayed by Nicole Byrd
- The Wedding Challenge by Candace Camp
- The Dangerous Duke by Christine Wells
- Crossfire by Joann Ross
- Hostage to Pleasure by Nalini Singh
- The Price of Desire by Jo Goodman
- Nightwalker by Jocelynn Drake
- The Horsemaster's Daughter by Susan Wiggs
- To Catch a Thief by Christina Skye
- If There Be Dragons by Kay Hooper
- Sweet Trouble by Susan Mallery

So those are all the books I've bought since I started working at the lab... there might have been some more... I can't remember at the moment and I'm not home. Some I've already read, others that might linger in the TBR pile... LOL, what can I say? I just love buying books :P

What about you? What were your recents buys?


  1. Hang in there - the lab can only get better - right?

    As for books - great haul! I want t read the Force book... love those sports heroes!

  2. I need some book therapy! I haven't been to a brick and mortar for the summer - I see a trip coming this week. Not that I know of any books I need but sometimes you just need to be surrounded by books on EVERYTHING!

    I hope work settles down for you. And why your boss would compare to work from the last person he didn't trust is beyond me but hey, you'll figure out how to 'appease' this guy sooner or later.


  3. I just bought Dead Until Dark and a Toni Blake book. I finished dead until dark yesterday. It was really good!

  4. Hand in there, Nath! It'll get better. :)

    I haven't been to a B&N or Borders in weeks now, need to go book hunting soon!

  5. Buying books is a great way to cheer up. I always get a rush when I add to my TBR pile(mountain)lol

    Hostage to Pleasure was awesome! And I've heard good things about Nightwalker, I need to get it.

    Hope you start getting Saturdays off so you can relax and read. : )

  6. Lori - I am, I am... and I do hope that this can only get better!! Cos if it gets worst, I'm doomed, LOL!!

    I still haven't touched the Force books... with my schedule lately, I didn't have much time reading :(

    Cindy - LOL, you have to go and I predict you'll have a field trip out of it!! :)

    Hopefully, this week will go well. Keep your fingers crossed for me!!

    Isabel - I've tried the Sookie books... I just can't get into them :( sometimes, I'm weird that way... sigh. Glad you enjoyed it though!!

    Wendy - LOL, I figure if you can go through being a nurse, I should be able to hang in there :)

    Leslie - OMG, whenever I'm unhappy or bored, I go bookshopping. that would explains my huge TBR pile :P

    LOL, I sure hope I can get my Saturdays back soon :)

    I enjoyed HtP :), but Nightwalker was meh. I did write a review in case you're interested :P
