I sound like a broken record, but my migraines are kicking my butt again. I had another ocular migraine this week. So frustrating! I was out with my mom trying to help her get some last minute shopping done for her wedding next weekend and it hit me. She's never witnessed me with one before, so she was nervous because after a while I lose almost all of my vision. I had never even heard of an ocular migraine until I had one a couple years ago. For some that may not have heard of it, it start as a small spot in your vision; kind of like right after a camera flashes in your eyes. Then it get bigger, and the only way I can describe it is like if you were looking through a prism. There is a big sparkly, squiggly line in the middle of your vision that has bright colors around the edges. As it grows, I lose my peripheral vision. It can last up to 40 minutes. The first time I had one I rushed to the hospital because I was worried I had a brain aneurysm or a tumor or something. It was scary. I don't get them too often but they usually precede a king sized migraine.
On to my bookish news, I have been doing really good with not requesting a ton of books lately....although I did just break down and join Edelweiss, so I'm not sure how long that's going to last. lol! I'm not used to Edelweiss at all. I've been getting most of my ARCs from NetGalley. I feel like it's an easier website, but maybe that's just because I'm used to it? I'm also kicking my Reading Challenges' butts so far! I've read 18 books already this year (my Goodreads goal is 200 books) so I am a little ahead of schedule. I've read 5 books towards my Beat the Backlist challenge(Goal=50) and 12 towards my New Release Challenge (Goal=125). Woohoo! Hope I can keep it up!
I probably won't be around for next week's Stacking the Shelves link up because my mom is getting married!! Yayyy! So I hope you all have a great couple weeks and can't wait to check in again!
