It's a busy, bustling week for me. (In my head, I call it h-e-double hockey sticks week.) See, Thursday is the big day. I work all year round to organize and put together a gala for the organization that I work for. And the big event is Thursday. So this week is full of little last-minute tasks, second guessing and trying to keep my wits about me. So far, I'm holding my own. (I expect that to change any minute now.)
Unfortunately, this means that books are pushed out of the forefront of my mind. (Sacrilege, I know!) But I am a dedicated book blogger and so I am stealing away for a few moments to type up something quick and warmly witty (maybe?) about what I've been reading.
I just finished "The City of Ember" by Jeanne DuPrau because it was this month's book club book. I had been wanting to read it for a while and it turned out to be okay. Not as good as I was hoping, but not really all that bad, either. I'm feeling sort of so-so about reading the sequels.
Then I read "When in Doubt, Add Butter" by Beth Harbison. This one I really enjoyed. I knew from the first chapter on that it was going to be one that I liked and that prediction held. Sharp, funny and about food . . . what's not to like?
I'm currently reading "The School of Essential Ingredients" by Erica Bauermeister. I seem to be on a books-about-food kick. But that's okay, because I'm really enjoying this one so far, too. There's the slightest touch of a magical element to the characters and the writing, which makes it somehow even more enchanting to me.
And that's it. If you're looking for a movie recommendation, I say to you: GO AND SEE ARGO. It's outstanding. Fantastic. Superb.
