I've been reading a lot this weekend. So yes, it's been like my own private readathon. So what else is new, right? Isn't this how every weekend is? Well, not always. But it has been especially slow and quiet around here the past couple of weeks. I think it's the calm before the storm of school starting and the lazy summer life being completely turned upside down.
So I must take advantage while I can!
Friday I was completely absorbed by Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert, and finished that Saturday morning. It was much better than I expected, but I'll let you know all my feelings on it coming up in a real review soon. And that I've got it read, I probably won't even see the movie for awhile. To me, it's more a "rent from Redbox" movie than a "pay for the big screen" sort. What do you think?
Once that was done, I started concentrating on Children of God by Mary Doria Russell. I'm starting to get a feeling what might be happening in this book. Sheesh. And there was a surprise right from the get go that I really enjoyed! Anyway, so I've got a good start on that.
Then last night, and today I couldn't help myself and started reading A Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner. That one is a little surprising so far too. Hmmm.... not sure what to think. There's not quite enough Gen in it for me at this point. I'm holding out hope though.
I've gotten back on the treadmill this week too (yes I took a little break okay?) and so that book is currently Once Was Lost by Sara Zarr. Hopefully I'll finish that one this week too.
I've got a lot of spiritual-ish books going on these days. What's up with that? Is someone trying to tell me something?
In between reading, we've been continuing with our Prison Break marathon. We got season two from the library last Monday and every night have watched at least three episodes. Tonight, we have the last two to go. And I'm really nervous about how it will end because we don't have the third season waiting in the wings! This just might be the thing that pushes us over the edge into getting Netflix finally! And I'm also nervous because I heard that, like many TV series, it goes down hill in the final seasons, but oh, well. I'm so hooked I don't care hardly.
So, how's your weekend going?
