Well - last week was the last week of school. But I still get to work for another week or so...
At another work site. One where I DON'T know the kids. I hate beginnings. I hate meeting new kids and ...people. It's always awkward. Somehow it's different than meeting new students at whatever school I work at - because then it's on my home turf. So I'm a little nervous about next week and irritated at myself for being nervous...especially at my age. I should just be relaxed about everything. haha. yeah, right.
Well - Monday again. Now it's time for us to visit each other's blogs, see what we're reading, etc. Hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.
I didn't get a whole lot read last week.
I actually only finished reading one book.
Started two others....but finished just the one.
I finally finished Dead Reckoning by Charlaine Harris. I was feeling a little frustrated at first because it seemed to be slow going at first...but then I remembered this is The Southern Vampire books. Sookie lives in Louisiana, where the living is slow and easy (or not easy), and the book writing tends to echo how I imagine the people would talk from there. I might be totally wrong, but I'm also going by memory of listening to some people we knew who came from areas around there. So I just relaxed, picked it up and finished. It was good.
Besides, I totally want to finish this series and see what happens in the end...not reading any reviews about the last book of the series because I've heard there are many spoilers out there, as well as dramatic reviewers. So I'll just wait.
Current Reads or rather, the latest two books I've started (as opposed to the other 20 or 50 books I've started and forgotten to finish)
Hexed by Kevin Hearne.
Enjoyed the first novel enough to dive right into
the second one. Then last night my son's huge dog was laying on the book, and I didn't feel like making him move so I started....
Shadow Kin by M.J. Scott.
Not sure yet what I think of it. It's reading well, as in the words flow. I already have the second book because I bought it by mistake a few weeks ago, thinking it was the first.
Well - Summer vacation is almost here (for me). I'm hoping to get a lot more reading done. I have quite a few books that have been languishing that I should get to reading...and I hope they're good. :)
