Hosted by http://caffeinatedbookreviewer.com/ the Sunday Post is a chance to chat about the week - and blog - that was, and talk about what's coming up in both, also.
It has been ... a week. Well, really a weekend.
I haven't blogged much this week but I did do a "review" of Station Eleven: http://lifetheuniverseandcats.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/station-eleven-review.html and also of Lady Knight, a book I ended up wanting to like more than I did: http://lifetheuniverseandcats.blogspot.co.nz/2015/07/lady-knight-review.html
Now I'm reading The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making, which is really, really charming so far; The Duchess Wars on ibooks which was recommended to me, and for my Thursday night chunkster I started The Sunne In Splendor by Sharon Kay Penman. I compiled a shelf for Thursday night's reading and here is what it looks like so far:
My only criteria so far for Thursday night reads is that the book has to be over 400 pages. I was able to cull this lot from my own shelves. The only thing I want to change about it is that it is rather lacking diversity. So if anyone has suggestions for books by non-white writers - same criteria applies - I'm open for suggestions!
Now. On to the less fun stuff. There is one major life event that I'll blog about next week. I'm not deliberately trying to be cryptic, I just need to know it's set in stone before I talk about it here.
As for the weekend ... On Saturday morning I woke up at 4am with *ahem* digestive issues. Luckily the traffic was all one way, so I spent a lot of time sleeping and a lot of time in the loo. I think it was something I ate, but I can't be sure.
Fast forward to just before midnight. I get woken up by spawn, saying he doesn't feel well.
Me: "The bathroom! The bathroom!"
Spawn *Hurls all over my bedroom floor and THEN the bathroom floor.*
So J and I cleaned that up and got him back into bed.
We''re both feeling ... tentatively better today.
Now. Today. We have lost two cats this year, because of age and infirmity. I expect that. But today ...
This is Morgana, the tabby on the left. The tortie on the right is Freya.
Sure enough, it was Morgana. We'd never known her to even go on the road, but there she was, bowled, and gone. She was the sweetest, most loving cat, and I was never without her on my lap of a night watching TV.
So. It's not been the most stellar of weekends.
Coming up this week ... I'll blog about the life change I spoke of so obliquely, and hopefully have a couple of reviews.
I hope your week has been better than mine :-)
