Sometimes, the urge to knit something new is so over powering it defies common sense. That happened this week, I cast on for Anne Hanson’s Cluaranach. I am slowly working my way through the first chart repeats and not doing much knitting on anything else. For a brief second, I pondered being able to finish this before Easter, but then reality set it. I do not think that is at all humanly possible, although the fleeting thought was nice for a second!
However, my reading has been off the charts good!
Sometimes, life needs to stop so one can read all the things, especially when you have a flurry of holds become available at the library. That happened to me in the past week, so I had to get moving on reading!
Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine, which I loved so much! It is a 5-star book and I highly recommend it!
Make Your Bed which was a nice little palate cleanser, and at 4-stars, I also recommend it!
I did something unusual this week, in that I read actual books: Brianna Wolfson’s Rosie Colored Glasses, which is a stop everything and read this book recommendation. It is Brianna’s debut novel and it is fantastic. It fills the “One-sitting Book” slot on my Read Harder Challenge, that’s right, I started reading it at about 8PM on Monday night and finished it shortly before midnight. It is so good, but be warned, I cried for probably the last 45 minutes or so of the story. It gets 5-stars from me and again, this is a MUST-READ book!
I also read Where the Dead Sit Talking, this was a tough read but well written. 4-stars and I highly recommend.
My current reads:
I am about half way though The Power and Love and Ruin. Both so good, and diversely different! Up next, one of the books from the Women’s Prize for Fiction 2018 longlist: A Boy in Winter by Rachel Seiffert, Lexie Elliott’s The French Girl, and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451, which I want to get read before the HBO movie of the same name starts in April. And, have I said recently how much I love my library? Because, I do so much!
