Monday Malarkey

Happy Monday! I hope your Monday has started out better than that of my Facebook friend, who socked herself in the face while removing the plastic from a new laptop case. Mine has been fine, so far. I just watched the curmudgeon across the street check the interior of his mailbox and then set his fists firmly on his hips and stare at the mailbox like it had disappointed him.

Recent arrivals:

  • Mosquitoland by David Arnold - Purchased after reading about it. 

No ARCs arrived, this week. I didn't bring home any books from the library, either, but I did take a picture of the parking lot because I think my library's parking lot is just gorgeous. Walking to the door of the library feels like taking a nature walk:

Books finished since last malarkey:

  • Good Taste by Jane Green
  • A Most Extraordinary Pursuit by Juliana Gray

Currently reading:

  • Landfall by Nevil Shute - A WWII book by the author of A Town Like Alice and On the Beach, published in 1940. 
  • Furiously Happy by Jenny Larson - I can't seem to convince myself to pick this book back up and it's due at the library on the 5th, so I'll probably return it unfinished. I'm just not finding it as funny as I'd hoped. 

Posts since last malarkey:

In other news:

I'm a little behind on the book reviews but I'm going to probably go ahead and post about my September reads, tomorrow. I had a great post-slump reading month.

  1. Your library does have a great parking lot!

    1. It's the best. It even smells good because of the pine trees.

  2. Mosquitoland has been on my radar for awhile. I'll look forward to your review. Your description of your neighbor made me laugh out loud. Loud enough that my husband had to turn up the video he was watching on YouTube.

    1. You have no idea how happy that makes me, Jenny. I live for those rare moments when people laugh at something I've said!

  3. Wow! I love your library's parking lot. It looks like it's in a forest!

    1. It is nestled in woodland with oaks and pines surrounding it on all sides. There is actually even a little nature path down to a pond. The location is amazing.
