Sunday Reflections – 8 February 2015

Sunday Reflections Button

It has been quite the week – long hours, cold weather. Thankfully, we have one more week until the auditors arrive. There is an end in sight. I hope.

The kids are settling into this semester nicely. Homework, practices, more homework, more practices. It keeps them busy. It keeps us busy. It was a rough week for reading or downtime, but I hope to remedy that today. Offseason winter weekend days are perfect for that.

I am on a weird reading kick lately in that none of the books I have been reading are remotely similar to each other. I am crossing all genres and topics, as confirmed yet again in this week’s What Are You Reading? post and subsequent reviews.  First, I hit the horror genre with Seth Grahame-Smith’s The Last American Vampire. I think it could really cross over into the comedy category because I find the main characters exploits highly amusing, but then again, I may be a little blase about horror these days. I moved on to the sweet but oh-so-confusing and slightly odd debut by Emma Hooper, Etta and Otto and Russell and James.  My review makes it sound like I enjoyed it more than I did. In reality, all those warnings I mention are because I was guilty of doing all of them and ended up finishing the book with a rather perplexed look on my face. If someone wants to tell me how it ends, I would appreciate it because I still have no idea.  I ended up the week with a fun but a tad predictable debut by Eric Smith, Inked. I cannot get over that cover. It is seriously one of the most beautiful covers I’ve seen in a while. This whole week is about as eclectic as it gets, folks.

It really was not an exciting week as everyone was firmly into our regular routine. I hope everyone had as quiet week and are enjoying a relaxing weekend as well. Have a great Sunday!
