The Books: This sunny day finds me still reading Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell. I am at page 700. It’s unbelievable to think that I am nearing the end, but that I also still have 300 pages left. I’m glad this is such a long book. I don’t think it would have worked if it was any shorter. I just found out Norrell’s name is Gilbert. Heehee.
Next to JS&MN I recently picked up There but for the by Ali Smith and State of Wonder by Ann Patchett from the library as Orange reads. I’m about to start There but for the, though I have to admit that the last few days haven’t been reading days really, so I’m not sure how soon I’ll finish these two books.
I’m dreading a few reviews I still need to write (I’m up to 15 unwritten ones at the moment). I’m not looking forward to writing about Goddess Interrupted in particular, since I had problems with the story and most people seem to love it. So I don’t know. I guess I had better get it out of the way soon.
The tea: I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I am not drinking any tea at the moment. I’ve had tons of tea the past few days, because I’ve been in bed with a cold. But right now, with the sun shining outside, I think I may just stick to water.
Other News: I read Mockingjay this week and loved it. I also got to see The Hunger Games movie yesterday and I loved it. It’s great to see a YA novel tackled in an appropriate way and having them use effects that capture the emotions/feel of the setting and characters well (*ahem* Twilight *ahem*). Very much recommend you go and see it. I certainly will be watching it again soon.
