The clock is ticking, the days are sliding by…and before we know it, Christmas will be here, with New Year’s right behind it.
I am hoping for a better year in 2018…and one of the bookish things I enjoy each January 1 is the First Book of the Year event, which Sheila, Book Journey, is hosting again.
I selected my book a while ago…and even had several photos snapped to share on the actual day. You’ll have to tune into my An Interior Journey blog to find out more.
What am I doing until then? Well, reading, of course. After my start of Sing, Unburied, Sing, I set it aside. It wasn’t doing it for me. Despite the themes I usually enjoy (poverty, drug addiction, dysfunctional families), the narrators fell flat for me. I know I am in the minority with these feelings, obviously, since the book won many awards. But that’s okay.
I am now reading and loving Snap Judgment, the third book in Marcia Clark’s Samantha Brinkman series.
I am happy that, after a thorough cleaning of my misbehaving coffee pot, today’s pot was everything I have always loved about coffee on a Sunday morning…or any morning. Yay!
As a treat yesterday, I took one of my holiday Christmas gift cards to Cheesecake Factory for a nice Blood Orange Martini and some pasta.
This morning, I did something new: I made some bacon and eggs for my brunch!
What are you savoring about the holiday season? Are you discovering books you love, and maybe setting aside those you don’t enjoy?
