As I predicted, I’m surviving, but not with much grace. Tutoring has taken over my life, but I love all my kids, so it’s good–as long as I can stay awake.
What I’m listening to: The Knife of Never Letting Go – I heard about this book from a friend of mine last year. While I wasn’t sure about it at first, I’m really enjoying it. It’s sort of dystopian, but it’s about the settlers on a new world. The most exciting part is that I haven’t figured it out yet.
What I’m reading: One of Our Thursdays is Missing – This is the newest installment in the Thursday Next series. I’m still not very far in as I took a break and read another book, but it’s a really fun read so far complete with the usual shenanigans by various famous literary characters.
What I finished: Dead Reckoning – Not my favorite Sookie novel, but still good. I found it as exciting as the others with a good mix of her life and troubles, but I felt like the end was a bit unresolved. We shall see what she does with it in the next book, I guess.
What I finished: The Mountain Between Us – A few years ago, I discovered Charles Martin. I LOVE this author! He’s such a fantastic storyteller. The way he weaves stories is beautiful and heart wrenching and moving and hopeful all at the same time, and this story was no different. I found this book to be a bit different from his others in that I didn’t see the twist coming AT ALL. As I thought back over the story, I should have, but I didn’t. I laughed; I cried; I threw the book across the room when I finished it. It was GREAT! If you haven’t read his stuff–DO IT!
