Update for the end of November

I've been reading, but at the same time I haven't.  I took a break from North and South to read The Bad Queen, but now I am back with North and South and I looooove it.  I am also reading a children's mystery called Muder at Midnight by Avi.  It is good but not amazing.  (Not as good as the first one.  The first one, Midnight Magic, was much better and took me only 8 hours to read, during a road trip.)

In any case, I'm reading more now that I'm on break for Thanksgiving.  I have a few books from the library that I hope to read soon.  Some of them I picked up just because they were there - it may take me a couple of weeks to get around to them, especially with some books I have on my shelf that I haven't read or what to re-read.

Found by Margaret Peterson Haddix;
Dark Life by Kat Falls;
A Kiss in Time by Alex Flinn.

All look good, but I may end up only reading one.  Or none.

The one book I have that I really want to read at the moment is Hood by Stephen Lawhead.  My re-reads include The Last of the Really Great Whangdoodles by Julie Andrews Edwards.  And I have probably 6 books on hold at the library.  Some will take a while to come in but eventually...

And that is my update.  However, don't count on everything turning out just the way I've written it.  The other day I had two reading moments:  one, I was wanting to read the three books I brought home from the library; the next, I was wanting to read the book on my shelf.  I never know what I'm actually going to read until I open it and get sucked in.  If I don't right away, I put it down and make a promise to try again later.
It's just my mood today, I tell myself.  I'll be sure to read it eventually...

Sigh.  If only there was enough time to actually read all these wonderful stories.  They're so inviting and warm and inspiring.  Someday, I'll have a book of my own out there.  Glorious, thinking about it.

Until my next review, The Bad Queen by Carolyn Meyer...

Happy Reading and Happy Thanksgiving! :)
