There is no use fighting with Mother Nature. It’s freaking freezing cold out. And getting colder. And then it will be over and we can get back to our regularly scheduled winter. In the mean time, all we can do is wait it out. I am fortunate enough to be able to wait it out at home with my nephews, who are home from school. Kids are so lucky. We did some yoga, made french toast for breakfast, and now are all snuggled up watching some TV. I plan to read for a while at some point. Though I sense Cabin Fever is already setting in. I could be in for a long day…Back to the task at hand. My 2014 reading is off to a great start.
I can’t believe it took me so long to get to the second BZRK book, BZRK Reloaded by Michael Grant. The battle for humanity is being fought at the nano level. This series raises fascinating ethical questions. If you have the power to alter the brains of humans to make them “better,” should you? Also, it is so creepy! I loved it and am ready for more. I also finished the Sweet Tooth series by Jeff Lemire. We finally learn what the heck is going on with all the hybrid babies and the answer, while satisfying, was surprising. If you need something to read while waiting for a new Walking Dead, give this one a try! Finally, I finished by first book of 2014, Attachments, by Rainbow Rowell. After reading eleanor & park and Fangirl, I just had to go back to the beginning and pick up her debut novel. I was not disappointed. It was clever and funny and sweet. I read it in two days. I can’t wait for more Rainbow Rowell in 2014!
In my car I have started Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I have been listening to The Fall of Five by Pittacus Lore when I walk the dogs. I don’t know what it is about this series. It’s so compelling that I am completely willing to overlook the flaws. I really need know how things end, though I suspect I will have to wait a while for that. Book 5 (out of how many?) comes out this summer. Sigh.
This week I plan to finish A Stranger Thing, the sequel to Mothership by Martin Leicht. I will also finish (I swear!) A Breath of Frost by Alyxandra Harvey
How are you staying warm?
