- I meant to post my first crafty post yesterday, but I couldn’t find the article I wanted to post about to take pictures. Turns out it was at my mother-in-law’s house. I will post this weekend.
- I finished Madame Bovary on Saturday. Andi and I read it together and it was SO. AWESOME. The reading together and the book. I don’t know why I never read MB before, it wasn’t nearly as intimidating as I thought. It was actually a quick read, for me anyway. My edition was 814 pages, on my Nook, and pages don’t go like normal on there. Maybe that’s why it felt fast? Or because it was so compelling? I can’t wait to read another book with my Andibug. Also, she kicks butt.
Speaking of classics, I spent a lot of time Sunday trying to figure out which one to read next. Help? These are the 5 I am leaning toward and I want your thoughts:
- The House of Mirth by Edith Wharton
- A Moveable Feast by Ernest Hemingway
- Villette by Charlotte Bronte
- Middlemarch by George Eliot
- Vanity Fair by William Makepeace Thackeray (since I seem to be in a good place, reading wise, for classics) (this might go for all of the above)
- I read my first book on Debi’s list of top 49 for me, Seedfolks by Paul Fleischman. It was absolutely adorable. And now I am dying to get my hands in the dirt. It’s about a community garden and how it changes the lives of those who use it. For 102 pages, it packs a lovely punch.
- Did anyone watch the series finale of Chuck Friday night? I am gutted. Absolutely gutted. I cried for like an hour after it was over, mostly because I got online and read articles and interviews with the cast and creators. My Friday nights will have a big whole in them now; Grimm is good, but it’s not Chuck.
- I’m feeling anxious to read more Terry Pratchett. Now that’ve finished the Tiffany Aching series, Amazing Maurice and Nation, I’m not sure where to go next. Suggestions?
That is all.
