Good morning Saloners! It is 8 am on Sunday morning and I am sitting here freezing my butt off because it is COLD outside. Cold weather does not make me a happy girl, so I will just have to suffer through it in the upcoming months. 😦
I don’t know if I have ever told you guys this, but every other Sunday morning at 11 am I teach Sunday school at my church (well, we don’t call it “sunday school”, we call it The Great Adventure, or TGA for short). I have three-year-olds, and they are tons of fun – they brighten my week every time I get to have time with them. The reason I’m telling you this is that it’s my week today, so I need to get this post typed up and in order to get in the shower and get out of here. After church I will most likely head on out to my sister’s to spend some time with them. As most of you know by now, I try to spend time with as much family as I can every Sunday, my niece especially.
Anyway, this week I read and reviewed The End of Poverty, which I tried to like but didn’t really understand, The Hunger Games, which I of course loved, and Blindness, which I also loved. Well, Blindness really freaked me out so I don’t know if “loved” is the right word. But it was a seriously amazing book. I also did a fun little meme where you can learn a bit more about me.
I’m currently reading:
I am really enjoying In the Woods although it’s taking longer than normal to read, I think because I don’t read mysteries all that often so I have to get used to the groove of reading a mystery. Twilight of a Queen is okay so far, I am interested in the story but it doesn’t wow me (at least, not yet). The Promised World is the one that I just started yesterday, so I’m only about 60 pages in, but let me tell you, it took all my willpower not to race through the book last night and abandon the other two. It has sucked me in from the start and I have a feeling I’m going to love this one.
For all of you who were lucky enough to attend one of the book festivals this weekend, a) I’m super jealous that you’re all becoming friends IRL and I haven’t gotten a chance to meet ANY of you yet, and b) I want pictures soon! I’m really hoping I can come to BEA when a lot of other people are, but money is tight and vacation time at work is not very plentiful so we will have to see when the time comes. Perhaps you guys want to come to Chicago sometime? 😉
Happy Sunday everyone!
