This Week's Book Week is rather similar to Stacking the Shelves hosted by Tynga's Reviews only with far more rambling and a less witty title. ;)
Spring is very much in full force out here. Everything's green and big and full of flowers. And the dandelion fluff is drifting through the air like springtime snow. Ick. I can only hope I don't get all stuffed up and sick.
So... my 6 weeks of antibiotics were up on Wednesday and I had an appointment with the doctor at the clinic. ... It was rather abrupt. The doctor looked at my finger and said I was done and asked a nurse to remove the PICC line. They've washed their hands of me. Basically, the 6 weeks were up, my bloodwork always came back fine with no abnormalities, my finger looked like it was healing. It's not completely better, some swelling comes and goes, I can't bend it without some discomfort. Apparently it's good enough for the clinic to say I'm done. I think my bloodwork was a big deciding factor, even at the start everything was normal. *sigh* We'll see. I see my family doctor next week, I'll ask what I should be doing now, if I need to go back on another round of oral antibiotics or wait until it blows up like a sausage again.
Wednesday was weird. I had a couple of nice e-mails early in the day (with some awesome stuff in them that you'll get to read soon) and then I went off to the outpatient clinic and was told I was done with my treatment and gently nudged out the door. It's nice having the PICC line out, though.
I was looking at my review schedule and July looks rather bereft. I might be filling it with books I haven't gotten the chance to read that have been out for months, books like For Darkness Shows the Stars or The Evolution of Mara Dyer. What books would you suggest?
Reviews this week will feature The 5th Wave by Rick Yancey, Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo, and The Testing by Joelle Charbonneau. :)
The Evolution of Mara Dyer by Michelle Hodkin
Sever by Lauren DeStefano
Until I Die by Amy Plum (e-book)
