This week has been really nice since I only had one chapter of school work to complete! Also, my mid-terms are over! *throws confetti* I am happy to report that I made a 92 on it. I will say that my Nonfiction November has been thoroughly disappointing but through no fault of the books — with NaNoWriMo happening, the majority of the nonfiction I’ve been reading are books about writing. Not all that fun. Next year, I will have to choose which things to participate in instead of trying to Do All the Things. Oh, well. Lesson learned!
In other news, our new kitty has settled right in here. He’s not shy at all which surprised me. He seems to think he’s a big boy already because he doesn’t mind playfully attacking the older cats. They’ve all been really good with him, though. A few hisses and growls but that’s to be expected. What we didn’t expect, however, is for our youngest puppy to take to him the way she did! She loves him!! How cute are they?!
Also, the blog got a makeover! If you’re reading via email or WP Reader, come check it out!
- Sunday Post #18: The post that was forgotten (Oops!)
- Nonfiction November: Be/Become the Expert
- Top 10 Tuesday: Characters I Wish Had Their Own Books
- What shall I read next?
- Eleanor & Park by Rainbow Rowell [Audiobook Review]
- DR. MUTTER’S MARVELS by Cristin O’Keefe Aptowicz [in progress – Nonfiction November] – So far, I am really enjoying this! I am a little morbid in that I love anything to do with old medical things–hospitals, bottles and jars, graphic details of surgery before things were sparkling clean. I can’t explain it but this is definitely my kind of read!
- WHERE’D YOU GO BERNADETTE by Maria Semple [in progress – Book Club] – Just started this one last night so I’m only a few pages in. Seems somewhat interesting so far.
- STONE MATTRESS: NINE TALES by Margaret Atwood [in progress] = Also started this last night and finished the first story, “Alphinland”. I’m enjoying it so far!
- THE FAME LUNCHES by Daphne Merkin – This got mixed reviews on Goodreads but it seemed like it was worth a shot. I’m always interested in essays about contemporary topics.
- THE YONAHLOSSEE RIDING CAMP FOR GIRLS by Anton DiSclafoni – This got some pretty rave reviews from fellow bloggers that have similar interests to mine so I figured I would give it a shot.
Not sure if I will have time to get to everything that I’d like to but, I’m going to try!
Don’t forget to vote for the next chunkster novel I should read over here!
How has your week been?
