I confess, I feel like a bit of a slacker of late. After a rare mid-week day off to attend a preview of The Hunger Games movie (I had a great time and enjoyed the movie very much) and a three-day weekend, it’s time to get back into the swing of things! I certainly kept busy on my days off-a Rocky-style morning in the park (you know, me, the dog, a hill, triumphantly running up and down…), a visit to the aquarium, dinner with friends, a sleepover with my nephews, glow-in-the-dark mini-golf, and the second annual Ukrainian egg decorating extravaganza! I even managed to squeeze in some reading. First some pictures of my eggs. I moved up to the intermediate class this year (which basically meant I was given my supplies and told to make art. Instructions were reserved for the newbies. Dinner was served once we had all made an egg).
I made these last year:
These are the new ones:
This week I finished The Treasure Map of Boys by E. Lockhart. The third Ruby Oliver book was as clever and charming as the first two and I am looking forward to the final book in the series.
I continue to plug away at The Walking Dead by Robert Kirkman graphic novel series. I only have two left. What am I going to read after that?!? I am also half way through Y: The Last Man series by fellow Cleveland native Brian Vaughan. This too is another fantastic series. I am taking suggestions for new series to start.
In my car: I am going to finish Supreme Courtship by Christopher Buckley in the next few day. It’s really funny and Anne Heche is a wonderful narrator. I highly recommend this to fans of political satire. I am thinking about moving on to Okay For Now by Gary Schmidt.
The book I need to finish in the next two days because I can’t renew it any more: The Name of the Star by Maureen Johnson. The first book in The Shades of London series is so much fun that I won’t have any problem finishing it up this week.
I have two ARCs that I am working on, not very successfully I might add. A Woman of Consequence by Anna Dean and Wanderlove by Kirsten Hubbard. Seriously. It’s now embarrassing that I haven’t finished. Especially since I have Grave Mercy By Robin LaFevers next in my queue. Sigh.
Once I finish The Name of the Star I will have a choice to make. Here is a glimpse of my TBR pile. I am open to suggestions.
Help! That’s only a fraction of the books at home just waiting for my attention. Does one of these stand out as a MUST READ NOW book?
