A Weekend for Reading

I decided to “tune out” a bit from the internet this weekend and just spent time with the books but now my bloglines have exploded and I feel so behind. I’m sure you all can relate right? And, don’t even get me started on emails I owe.

But, with all the piles of books waiting to be read, I think every once in a while it’s good to tune out the world and get to reading! I know I will catch up on my emails and blog reading but for now let me tell you what books had me so occupied this weekend.

  • Out by Natsuo Kirino. Wow, this book was intense. I honestly had a very bizarre dream last night and I think it was related to this book. I finished it and will have a review soon but let me just say I’m so glad to have finally read it. To think that I had started this book several years ago and couldn’t get into it at the time. See, I do think there is such a thing as right book/wrong time.
  • The Wise Woman by Philippa Gregory. I’m more than half way through this book and it’s a quick read but I’m actually thinking about stopping. While I like the setting, the English Reformation, the characters are getting on my last nerve. I don’t like any of them. Normally, I don’t have problem not finishing a book but usually I figure this out by page 30-40 or so and now I feel like I’ve gone past the point of no return. So, we’ll see if I finish this one. Has anyone read it? Any thoughts on it?
  • Hallowe’en Party by Agatha Christie. Poirot investigates the murder of a 13-year-old girl at a Halloween party. Lots of potential culprits so far and I’m really enjoying the story as it develops. While I don’t make it a point to figure out whodunit when I read mysteries I can’t help but want to try with this one. I want to know whodunit and why.
  • Note to Self by Samara O’Shea. It’s rare that I go too long without writing in my journal but I realized that it’d been almost a month since I wrote anything. Lucky for me I’ve been reading this book and it really made me think what have I been waiting for? Get back to writing. So I did just that this weekend.

I have so many books waiting to be reviewed too and hopefully I won’t get too caught up in just reading and I can tell you about those soon. Hope everyone had a nice weekend and look forward to catching up on your blogs!
