And I thought moving month was slow! Now that we're in the house arranging, unpacking, decorating, etc. I'm getting hardly any reading time at all... If I wait until I actually finish a book before I post again I'll lose all my blogging friends, so I thought I'd post about what I'm reading instead.
I'm on the second section of Suite Francaise by Irene Nemirovsky... A great book, especially knowing that she lived what she wrote about. I love that the focus is on regular people and the regular things that they worry about. As in, young girls still think about love... It's so hard to get my head around it all though - I can't imagine having to live through anything like that and yet it could happen and we'd all have to just go on. It's a strange thought that makes me want to try and stop worrying and just be happy. Too bad worrying is such a big part of me and so unshakable. :-)
I couldn't get myself to read Suite Francaise in the evenings before going to bed because it made me too sad and pensive, so I started The Goose Girl by Shannon Hale. I'm still at the beginning but I'm really, really enjoying it. It's nice to read something with such a magical tone.
On a completely different note, we discovered a very cool tv show that we're now adddicted to. Heroes - does anyone else watch it? We're only at the beginning of season 1 and already it's amazing. It reminds of the David Mitchell books, where everything is connected...
Have a good day everyone!
