It has been a cozy morning so far, sipping coffee and reading blogs.
Yesterday was a complete change of pace, as my daughter called at 8:30, asking if I would hang out with Noah for the day. She was having a late day, and he is still not back in school (next week).
So I agreed, and, of course, the two of us had fun. We went to Barnes & Noble to hang out for a bit, and left with comic books for him.
I had Sparky with me and continued reading If I Stay while he shopped. Finished it a little while later (click for my review).
I knew that I would have to finish this before the weekend, when the movie is released. I keep seeing previews and wanting to be there in the audience already.
Funny how I am drawn to YA books when they have been made into movies. Perhaps I just love books with characters that engage me, and I can’t imagine engaging with the characters in some YA novels. But that’s okay.
As a matter of fact, I have discovered that the easiest way to capture my interest in a different genre than my usual is to discover the book on Vine. This next week, I’ll be reading another one that is not my “usual.” Falling Into Place, by Amy Zhang.
Of course I have pre-ordered it, and meanwhile, I’m thinking I should download one of her earlier books.
Perhaps The Comfort of Lies? What do you think?
So while yesterday felt like it might be a day that would pull me away from my books, Noah’s desire to go to the bookstore, and then his total immersion in his books and video games after, gave me ample opportunity to enjoy a bookish day.
Here’s an earlier photo of Noah with Heather…after a day at the beach. The kid knows how to have fun with adults.
How is your Hump Day shaping up? Anything special happening?
