Books That I Want To Read

There are so many books that I want to read right now. Some are old, some are newish but all of them are in my “want” file.

All the Ugly and Wonderful Things

Under the Harrow

Commonwealth

Absolutely on Music: Conversations

Today Will Be Different

The Mothers

Cruel Beautiful World

American Girls: Social Media and the Secret Lives of Teenagers

One of Us: The Story of Anders Breivik and the Massacre in Norway

The Third Wife

The Wonder Garden

The Opposite of Everyone

As you can see, I have a serious case of the “wants”. I am still trying to finish my one book before I can dive into these others. Because I’ve been so involved with this one book, I’ve not even looked at Edelweiss or NetGalley recently. What am I missing? Anything good?

What about you? What book are you dying to get to right now?

Me, Right Now

Me Right Now

Hello, all. Just thought I’d stop by to let you all know what I’m up to.

Not much.

I’ve been reading a thickish book and it’s taking me longer to read it than I thought it would (Summer of Night). It’s good but it’s slowing me down and my other reading is taking a backseat because of it. There are so many books I want to get to right now.

Also, I’m adjusting to having a college aged kid. He works a ton of hours and when he is off, he goes to school so we hardly see him. I was horrified to learn that he might have to work on Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving!!! Our day of PJs is in jeopardy. It’s like a very different world right now and it’s weird.

I find myself in this pensive mood lately. Quiet. Thoughtful. Pensive. Everything seems to have meaning to me. It’s a tad exhausting to be thinking all the time but I’ve been doing it. Maybe it’s my age. Maybe it’s just THAT time of year. It’s not a bad place to be in but time slips away from me and before I know it, another week has passed.

And, for whatever reason, I’ve lost all craving for meat. I seem to only want vegetables. This happened to me in my 20s and that led to a vegetarian, sometimes vegan diet for a good three years. Will it happen again? I wonder if it has to do with my iron levels being normal now.

That’s basically it. Things are good and quiet but different. How about you? What is going on with you right now?
