Hey there. Long time, no blog. Life, people. Summer.
School starts Wednesday. Wednesday. And there are still four skirts I need to hem. Ahem. But otherwise we are set and ready to go. I hope (fingers and toes crossed) to be back here a bit more frequently. Not as if that would be hard. Geez. I have been a slacker.
But, I've been reading a lot. Tons, actually. The amount of pages turned may inversely correspond to the amount of blog posts this summer. Or not. Who knows? Here's what I've read on my summer vacation:
Orchid House by Lucinda Riley
Gillespie and I by Jane Harris (Small coincidence, huh? My Jane Harris gave this to me for my bday)
The Marriage Plot by Jefferey Eugenides
The Newlyweds by Nell Freudenberger
In One Person by John Irving
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Then Came You by Jennifer Weiner
Bowling Avenue by Ann Shayne
A Trick of the Light by Louise Penny (7th in a series – all mysteries, best read chronologically)
Eight Inspector Montalbano books by Andrea Camilleri (again, mysteries that are best read in chronologically – these are not necessarily listed in order. There are also a few (5 or so?) that come before these that I had already read): The Age of Doubt, The Patience of the Spider, The Potter's Field, The Track of Sand, The Wings of the Sphinx, The Paper Moon, August Heat, Rounding the Mark
That's 17 books since my birthday. I'm impressing myself.
That pile up top? 5 are mine, 2 are Fatty's. 1 of mine we will both read. Bonus points (and maybe a prize?) for anyone who can figure out whose are whose.
