It’s a rainy Monday morning here in Cleveland and I have to confess that this gray weather totally matches my mood. I wish I was back home in bed with my book. Alas, it is not meant to be so, time to buck up and get busy!
In non-book related news, I finally finished watching the fifth and final season of Friday Night Lights. I never thought I would fall in love with a show about high school football, but I did. If you missed it while it was on the air (like me), I highly recommend going back and giving it a shot. I am trying to figure out who I am going to talk into watching it with me again!
My major accomplishment of the week? I finished 11/22/63 by Stephen King! You guys, it was amazing. Five stars. Everyone should read it, even people who say they don’t like Stephen King. I also finished Cinderella: Fables Are Forever by Chris Roberson. It’s an interesting spin-off, but I don’t love it like I love Fables.
I cannot start a new book until I have finished the one that is currently monopolizing all the space in my brain that is allotted for books. I am still working on:
A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin. I really thought I would finish this weekend, but I spent yesterday outside in the woods and then later running errands. I’ll finish this week.
The Lost Prince by Julie Kagawa. This Iron Fey spin-off is great! I am about half way through and hope to finish this week so I can start Burn for Burn by Jenny Han and Siohban Dowd.
Agnes and the Hitman by Jennifer Crusie and Bob Mayer. Meh. Keeps me distracted while I am walking and jogging.
I do have one new book for this week:
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein is my new book on CD. I did a lot of driving this weekend so I may finish it up this week. If I do, next up is Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor. I tried to read it, but couldn’t get into it. Maybe I will enjoy it more if someone reads to me? Admittedly, I did not get very far the first time.

…book with a character who plays a sport. I have two for you.
1. Pop by Gordon Korman. You can read my review for more details, but I love this book about football.
2. Megan Meade’s Guide to the McGowan Boys by Kate Brian.
Megan Meade is a star soccer player in this cute romance.
Ok, that’s all for me today.
