Happy President’s Day to all of my American friends. I hope you guys are enjoying your day off if you’ve got it off (like me). This week was the first round of Playoffs for my girls. Kenna had a bye this week so she automatically advanced to the second round. Brenna, on the other hand went up against Vista Murrieta on Thursday and her team lost so they’re out of the running for a CIF ring.
Kenna faced off against Corona Centennial on Saturday and her team put in swift work on that team. It wasn’t even a contest. Corona Centennial didn’t have an answer for anything Redondo (Kenna’s team) put to them and Kenna’s team came out victorious. They advanced to the third round and will face off against St. Anthony’s out of Long Beach on Wednesday. Should be a good game so I’ll be there to cheer my girl on.
My other niece Meghan’s team won the championships for their conference but they might have to share the title with the team that owns their one and only loss even though their team have two losses under their belt. The other team they lost to is rumored to have been playing with some illegal players so that loss will probably go away and they’ll have only one loss. They beat Meg’s team by 2 points on the second round of play but Meg’s team beat them by way more than 2 points in the first round so if you ask me, they shouldn’t be sharing shit. Still, Meg’s team deserved the win after all the hard work they’ve put in this season. Go Warriors!
I finally had a girls lunch with my friends. Last year, we didn’t get together for the last half of the year. We kept in touch strictly through text messages or a couple of us would get together but the others wouldn’t. we’re trying to do better this year and so far, we’ve gotten together in both January and February. I love hanging with my gals. I tried Popbar (a trendy popsicle place) and that was good but not something that I’d be dying to try out on a weekly basis or anything. All in all, it was a good week in life for me but not really a good week in books.
So let’s get on with the books, shall we?
Silver Silence (Psy-Changelings Trinity #1) by Nalini Singh
New York Times bestselling author Nalini Singh introduces a bold new chapter in her extraordinary paranormal romance saga with the Psy-Changeling Trinity series. Wild passion will encounter the darkest of betrayal…
Control. Precision. Family. These are the principles that drive Silver Mercant. At a time when the fledgling Trinity Accord seeks to unite a divided world, with Silver playing a crucial role as director of a worldwide emergency response network, wildness and chaos are the last things she needs in her life. But that’s exactly what Valentin Nikolaev, alpha of the StoneWater Bears, brings with him.
Valentin has never met a more fascinating woman. Though Silver is ruled by Silence—her mind clear of all emotion—Valentin senses a whisper of fire around her. That’s what keeps him climbing apartment buildings to be near her. But when a shadow assassin almost succeeds in poisoning Silver, the stakes become deadly serious…and Silver finds herself in the heart of a powerful bear clan.
Her would-be assassin has no idea what their poison has unleashed…
I’m supposed to be reading Archangel’s Kiss by Nalini Singh
for a buddy review with my friend Holly but I got this book for review. How in the world am I supposed to concentrate on Archangel’s Kiss
when Silver’s story is calling my name? I couldn’t so I put it down and have dug into Silver Silence
. This freaking book.

Faking It by Jennifer Crusie | DNF
I adored Good Boy by Sarina Bowen and Elle Kennedy
but was bored with Faking It by Jennifer Crusie
so I put that down, only to start a book that I put down too because well…Silver Silence
. I tried to finish Archangel’s Kiss
before jumping into Silver Silence
but I couldn’t do it. I just…couldn’t.
