Vacation Pics & Treadmill Week 79 & What I #amreading – Gyrfalcon by Anna Butler

Treadmill Goals/Tracking

  • Get on the treadmill (or equivalent exercise) daily
  • Pace is fine at 30 min/mile, although I may up it on occasion
  • Time range between 30 minutes and 1 hour per day
  • Distance 1-2 miles per day
  • Read the chosen book, which I won’t allow myself to read outside of my treadmill time, hopefully motivating me to reach or exceed the above goals (exception…at the end of the week where a book is highlighted, I will finish it off-treadmill so I can feature something new the next week)

What I’m Reading

Note: Although I will try to avoid them, my weekly reading snippets may or may not contain spoilers, so read at your own risk.

What I #amreading: Gyrfalcon (Taking Shield – book 1) by Anna Butler


My favorite lines this week:

✿✿ SUNDAY ✿✿

He was faster than it was. Drones were bigger than humans, taller and wider, but slower to move and not nearly as well motivated to survive.

✿✿ MONDAY ✿✿

Rosie twisted a short red curl around one finger. Bennet had only once called her hair carroty, and it had been like lighting the fuse on a firework. He wasn’t stupid. He never did it again.


“Your voice, Dad’s words.” Bennet couldn’t help it. He laughed. “Hell’s teeth, Joss, but you and irony are barely acquainted!”


“Do you have tea?”

The pilot looked nonplussed, as if he’d never heard of the stuff. “I’ll take a look,” he said, in the same tone of voice he’d use if Bennet had asked him for iced sherbet with rose petals scattered on top.


No reading

✿✿ FRIDAY ✿✿

The pilots could have won metals for synchronized eye rolling.


As Flynn had said, the odds were her blood had been replaced with a chemical solution into which the regulations had been dissolved, the better to bathe and solidify her internal organs. He’d laughed when he’d said it, but the laugh had been rueful.
