Last week's arrivals:
- Keep Your Friends Close and
- Just What Kind of Mother Are You? by Paula Daly
I won both books from the author in a twitter drawing and had just finished reading a book with slow pacing so I was craving a fast-paced read. I chose Keep Your Friends Close because it sounded like the kind of book I was looking for. Sure enough, the pages flew. I just finished Keep Your Friends Close, last night, and it was extremely satisfying. More on that, later.
Posts since last week's Twaddle:
Not a big posting week. I've begun working on my Ally-saurus review (a children's book) so hopefully that bodes well for a productive blogging week. If not, I'm not going to sweat it. At some point, I need to restock my hurricane supplies because we do have a tropical depression on the verge of turning into a tropical storm in the Gulf. Although it looks like it's not predicted to come our way, it serves as a good reminder that it's time to stock up on water, batteries and dry foods. And, I suppose I should buy a couple fresh fire extinguishers, since we had a small kitchen fire yesterday (no damage) - another reminder that one should occasionally refresh the supply as extinguishers do have an expiration date, from my understanding.
Books finished last week:
- When the Moon is Low by Nadia Hashimi
- Keep Your Friends Close by Paula Daly
- Pamela by Samuel Richardson - Didn't read any of Pamela till last night and after reading a fast-paced suspense? Argh, my eyes were rolling. I'd really, really like to get done with Pamela soon, but I'm not sure if this will be the week it happens.
- I haven't settled on a second fiction read but I still have Bear Grylls' book sitting by the bedside and will read more of it, today.
- I read a little bit of The Boys in the Boat By Daniel James Brown for F2F book group discussion and must admit I was bored out of my mind. Maybe it would be better to read a paper copy? I keep finding myself looking at how many minutes I have till the end of the chapter. If you've read The Boys in the Boat, tell me . . . does it improve? I haven't gotten very far.
In other news:
I need a vacation. The mountains would be nice . . . or somewhere exotic. How's your life going?
