Happy Sunday! It’s getting a bit late here and I am writing my post from my parent’s house since we’ve been here all afternoon (and I only woke up a half hour before we left to come here!). I could give a million excuses as to why my blogging has been lagging again this week, but we’ve all heard this story before, so I will refrain.
I finished Burning Bright this week, by Tracy Chevalier. Last Sunday I complained that the book was moving a bit slowly for me. I am glad to say that the book ended up picking up for me. I will say that I don’t find it to be as enrapturing as Chevalier’s other books, but her books are so great that this one had high standards to live up to. Once I finished it, I moved on to What Alice Knew, which I am about 2/3 finished with. Jen from Devourer of Books recommended it knowing that I appreciate stories involving Jack the Ripper. It is very gripping thus far and I am really appreciating the dichotomy between Alice, William and Henry James (yes, the novelist). Hopefully I finish it fairly soon as it was due at the library October 30 and I ave been accruing fines for over a week now!
I hope everyone got some good reading done today. Unfortunately, although I brought my book along, I have not read a single sentence yet today. I am hoping that I get into the swing of things with my second job soon and I am able to get back to normal with my blogging and reading.
