Books, Cake and a Movie

I didn’t get to do much reading this weekend as I had some family in town. We were busying celebrating with a Rosca de Reyes (luckily I didn’t get a piece with the doll!) and doing some shopping. My cousins left this afternoon and my husband and I went to see Juno to catch up on our movie viewing. It’s not just our book TBR lists that are always growing but our movies to watch list as well. So all in all a great weekend but now it’s time to get back to my books.

I’m very close to finishing Ines of My Soul by Isabel Allende. I have been a bit disappointed with this book but I’ll save my thoughts for another post. I want to have this one read by Tuesday for book group.

The other book I’m also close to finishing is A Mind to Murder by P.D. James. A couple of weeks ago Danielle and Dorothy W. were mentioning the Inspector Dalgliesh series and since I wasn’t enjoying the Allende book too much I wanted to mix in a book I figured I would enjoy. This is the second one in the series and it’s good.

Finally, I just opened Great Expectations today. I’m skipping the intro because, well, I just tend to do that. I usually read the intro after the fact. Anyway, it’s getting late so I’m off to bed with these books close at hand.
