For months now, my reading pace has been excellent. My secret is having all the books I want to read lined up and ready to go. But then, I read a slow book and my perfect little reading world began to tilt and fall off its axis. I quickly lined up a few reads to motivate me to keep going and then, those books didn’t seem all that exciting. Now, I am back to square one and working on that book line-up again. If I manage two reviews a week and keep it that way, that will make me very happy. If I can do so with great books, even better.
Coffee, church, youth group, a long walk. In that order. Maybe some takeout later while watching a movie.
Very happy to report that I snagged a vaccine appointment for my daughter for tomorrow! I was worried that we would have to wait a long time since they just opened it up to 16+ but the school district worked out a deal and voila, first appointment tomorrow. Yes!
On Wednesday, our book club will meet online to discuss Anxious People which I read awhile back and enjoyed very much.
I am currently reading Three Perfect Liars. I feel like it is a good choice to jumpstart the reading train again. It’s reminding me of the movie Baby Boom. A young professional takes a six month maternity leave only to return to her temp, sitting at her desk and working with her most important client. It’s very readable and pulls you in quickly.
I do think Northern Spy will be my next read. It was recently chosen for Reese’s book club.
I mentioned in one of my recent posts that we started to watch THEM on Amazon Prime. A black family moves to an all white Compton in the 50s and let’s just say their welcome is less than ideal. It’s a mix of racial motivated horror as well as supernatural horror linked to events in the past. It’s terrifying on many levels and has quite a bit of violence and disturbing imagery. We just finished it. I heard that there will be another season but I don’t know how there could be. What kept us watching is the acting.
- Good coffee. Need I explain? I wish we had more indie coffee shops around me though. The local chain leaves a lot to be desired IMO.
- Having passionate kids. My son is heading up the planning for a memorial for Kristin Smart. She disappeared 25 years ago. They just arrested two people and the anniversary of her disappearance is coming up. She was a Cal Poly student so he, and a group of others have been planning for a memorial in her honor. It will be a collection of art works, letters, etc. He was recently in the news if you’d like to read more.
What do you have planned today? What are you reading that I must know about?
