What I'm Thinking

I was going to write a review for today, but my brain is very very tired and would rather be more random at the moment. Are you ready for this? Here goes:

**  Yesterday I went to a Borders closing sale and got: Infinite Days by Rebecca Maizel, Dragon House by John Shors, Bloodroot by Amy Greene, The Member of the Wedding by Carson McCullers.. and If on a Winter's Night by Sting! I thought that wasn't bad at all! Have you read (or listened to) any of them? Are they good?

** Also yesterday I finally saw the new Jane Eyre. It was pretty good, but I'm still pretty much in love with the Timothy Dalton version. But what I really loved was how the whole theater was full of groups of ladies (us included) and afterwards, nobody got up to leave. It was little mini Jane Eyre discussions all over the theater. Seriously, a full 15 minutes later people slowly trickled out. I loved it. Have you seen it yet? And what did you think?

** It's been spring break for us this week. The most boring spring break ever, except for my son who got to go to Disneyland on a school trip and experienced his first real tour drama. Yeah, I can pass on that excitement. Have you participated in school trip/tour drama?

** Today I watched the Vampire Diaries. And then, THEN, with ten minutes left... suddenly That 70s Show started (which wasn't even the next show in the line up,) and they never finished The Vampire Diaries! So freaking maddening! What's up with that people? So, I'm hoping I can find it online soon and see how that intense crazy show ended! But in all that intensity, what I'll go away remembering about this episode is a dancing Damon! Love it. Where do you stand on the whole Vampire Diaries thing?

** I'm really not liking that Goodreads challenge thing telling me how behind I am with my 100 books goal! Chill Goodreads! I will catch up, never you fear! Are YOU behind on your goal?

** JOSH GROBAN CONCERT... four months away (as of yesterday)! And the way time flies, that's just around the corner really! Who would you be counting down to see if you were going to their concert?

** And now one song for the day. I blasted this one the other day in the car and wondered if it brings  back any memories for anyone else, like it does for me:

Ah, one of my favorite songs EVER.... are you all too young to remember this one? Is this showing you all just how freaking OLD I am? :)

Have a lovely weekend people! Read a bunch, even if it's not an official readathon!


  1. Wasn't Vampire Diaries maddening?!! So annoying. I am having fun texting with you, though. And Damon dancing, Yeah.

  2. I am behind on my goal according to goodreads. The really funny thing is that they are counting my audio books while I am not so I guess I am REALLY behind!

  3. I'm still waiting for Jane Eyre to come to our neck of the woods. But I'm afraid, based on the previews, of not liking it. It looks like it will be on a par with the awful Samantha Morton and Ciaran Hinds one. (The William Hurt version was also awful.)

  4. I've heard good things about Bloodroot so I hope that you enjoy! It sounds like you found some good books :)

  5. Infinite Days was a slow starter for me, but once I got through the first 50 pages I ended up liking it quite a bit. The Member of the Wedding, on the other hand, I once read for school...and hated. Maybe it's better if it's not required reading. ;-)

  6. Jenny: I hope I can find it online to finish those last few minutes... and watch Damon dancing again without annoying sound issues!

    Teresa: Good luck catching up!

    Mouseprints: It was pretty good really, but it didn't wow me or anything.

    Samantha: I hope I actually get to it someday, because for now it's right on the bottom of the priority list.

    Megan: I've heard lots of good things about Infinite Days,and Member of the Wedding, I may have read already, but I couldn't remember!
