What books are you reading this week? I finished reading Neverwhere. It was a fun read, nothing hard or scary or icky or anything awful. Okay, maybe a little icky, but icky in a descriptive, probably-not-going-to-happen kind of way. There were some really fun, imaginative moments with great imagery, and there were moments when I just wanted to smack the protagonist. He was a little, um, weak. Indecisive. Maddening. The whole story took place in London Below, the world under the city inhabited by all sorts of amazing creatures. It’s a quest story, and ended satisfyingly. I could tell you that they all lived happily ever after, but that might not be quite true.
I’m still reading Night, but only a bit at a time, as I think I’ve told you before. It isn’t easy and I have to balance it with other things or I’ll end up too much in my own head, and seriously horrified about the ability of human beings to hurt others. I believe that ability is unfathomable.
Rules of Civility was next on my list, but I ended up starting The Chilbury Ladies’ Choir instead. I am not sure why other than pure impulse. I keep seeing such grand review for Chilbury that I just wanted to see what all the buzz was about!
In the meantime, I am still plugging away on the canning season quilt. At the rate I am going, I might have it finished sometime next year. I’ve been doing a bit more handwork, though. A friend needed to borrow a couple of my antique quilts and I had to get sleeves and labels on them before they go. More about that soon!
What’s on your reading list this week? Are there any new books that have caught your eye? I’d love to hear about them because, yeah, my list isn’t nearly long enough.
Have a great Thursday!
(p.s. My redbuds are just starting to turn pink and the fruir trees are starting to bloom. Although you might think that means spring is here, there is a chance for snow this weekend. Crazy weather!!)
