Indulging in lots of different things | Weekly Snapshot

For whatever reason, it's been somewhat busy the past couple of weeks. I'm actually not sure where the past two weeks went but judging from the blank my memory is drawing, they were either boring or routine. 
LifeAlong with the majority of the country, the case count in my area is going up. It does feel as if everyone is now in fatigue and letting their guard down. It's not easy to live like this even for a few months and here we are at the end of the year and things are getting out of control. We're continuing to try to stay mostly indoors and socially distance when with company. I'm encouraged that the schools in the area have been able to keep the case trend at extremely low levels. My daughter's school has not had any cases so I'm considering sending her and my son to school/daycare during Spring. But with the rising cases, it feels difficult to take that step.

Yet another Monday! (Oct 31, 2011)


It's Monday! What are you reading this week?

Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books wants to know what we're reading. I'm only too happy to oblige!

Because of the unexpected weekend at home that I had, I've finally managed to finish another Blogger Recommends read and am excited about my next choice.

Books finished since the last update
-  The Wasp Factory by Iain Banks (The creep factor of this book will make it qualify for Halloween even though it isn't truly horror)
-  Green River Killer by Jonathan Case (A really well-done graphic nonfiction!)

News from over my blog

Reviews up!
-   A Thousand Lives by Julia Scheeres

-  My harrowing start to this weekend

Books on my nightstand
I have one book going now, but I haven't yet decided what I am going to read next. I was tempted to look at my stack right now, but I'll let myself be surprised. The less time I have to think about my next book, the better.


Repeat It Today With Tears by Anne Peile: I am almost done with this book and found it pretty fascinating, albeit disturbing to read about a girl who conceals her identity and begins an illicit affair with her absent father.

Comments

I added Repeat it Today with Tears from your last post so am very excited to see your review. Also looking forward to Wasp Factory.

I just can't bring myself to read The Wasp Factory. Sounds too creepy. Have a good week!
Karen Sime said…
I am sorely tempted to give The Wasp Factory another go. The Anne Peile book sounds quite disturbing!
I'm surprised you were able to read after the weekend you had.  I hope you have a wonderful week in books!

I put the Wasp Factor back on the shelves, it may be too creepy for me. But, I look forward to your review then I'll make a final decision

Oh, I am also looking forward to Repeat It Today with Tears, and think it sounds very disturbing and interesting. I am like you in that I don't like to think a lot about the books I am going to read before I read them. Great minds think alike, I guess! Happy Halloween!

I had a very slow week of reading. Please come see what I did finish.
I'm really fascinated with the tale of the Green River Killer, I hope it's a great graphic novel!

I'm hoping to put my review of Wasp Factory early next week. It's very literary but very creepy.
Athira / Aths said…
It is. I'm pretty astounded by the protagonist's actions.
Athira / Aths said…
Thanks! You have a great week too!
Athira / Aths said…
It was actually pretty intriguing. Creepy and weird yes, but I liked it.
Athira / Aths said…
The Anne Peile book is disturbing. I'm pretty shocked by the protagonist's desires. 
Athira / Aths said…
I think reading helped me get some focus over the weekend, or no saying, I might have bawled my head off out of shock.
Athira / Aths said…
I'm hoping to review it next week, hopefully. It was creepy, but not in the can't-go-to-sleep way. It just was. It was too literary for the creepiness to feel bothersome.
Athira / Aths said…
It was a good book! I hope you check it.
Athira / Aths said…
It is, isn't it? The book is good so far! 
Athira / Aths said…
I am with you there - great minds certainly think alike! :)
Athira / Aths said…
It is! It is really well-done. I highly recommend it.
Athira / Aths said…
Thanks! I hope you have a good week too!
Athira / Aths said…
I feel much better now, but I was a wreck over the weekend. Phew! Thank goodness for books and TV.

I read the previous post.  I'm sorry about your accident.  Yikes, that's scary.
Athira / Aths said…
The book is fascinating! Can't wait to see where it goes.
