I feel like all my posts lately have been either book or craft related. Hmmm...I wonder why. Snowed in with no TV, that's why! LOL Today was blissfully warm and sunny, and a thunderstorm overnight washed away the last remnants of snow. Lunch with old friends today was just the medicine needed to cure cabin fever.
Now, this is what I've been reading:
Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize...somebody PLEASE remind me not to read prize winners again. I am always disappointed and wonder, 'Who was on this judging committee?' This was pretty dark. A novel told in short stories. While I have really enjoyed this format before in other books, I was disappointed in this one. I'm glad I stuck it out, because I liked the second half much better than the first half. I rate it: 7/10
Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
I've tried this one before, but gave up a chapter or so in. I put it on my 2014 Goals list, so I'm giving it another try. Making more headway this time at least, and am about a third of the way through.
