happy tuesday!

Did everyone have a decent Valentine's Day? I certainly did.
It was very low-key. Nathan and myself went to the pub and shared a pizza. We showed up at the exact same time April and her boyfriend did. So, we all ate together and shared food. Then we just came back to my house and visited with my Sister, Brother-In-Law, and Nephew. It was a very chill day. And i enjoyed it a lot.

Sunday night i bought this book:
I've read about 90% of it, and i'm not too impressed. Honestly, the plot isn't bad, but it's really lacking in writing. It's a little too juvenile for my tastes. I think my biggest problem with this book is that Percy Jackson isn't Harry Potter. I think the only thing i like more about Percy Jackson is that he's way cuter. And i think that's was completely intentional for casting purposes. In the first book "The Lightening Thief" Percy is only 12 years old. And the trailers that i've seen for the movie he's definitely older. His character is atleast 16. So, that's weird to me. I do plan on finishing the book. And i may read the rest of the series to see what happens throughout them. But, i'm definitely not in love with it.

As for you book loving people, what books are you currently reading? I'm getting into the habit of reading a lot more again. I'll give nearly anything a try. Give me some suggestions please. What are your favorite books? I'm very interested!

Now, i'm off to getting ready to go to work.
You folks have a lovely night!


  1. Hm, why am I following you twice? I don't know. I'm reading The Green Mile but I get the feeling Stephen King isn't really your taste. I think that you might like The Five People You Meet in Heaven by Mitch Albom.

  2. Right now I'm reading Doctor Zhivago and A Million Miles in a Thousand Years. Love them both so much!

  3. tarah- you know, i've actually never read a Steven King book, but i might check into it! And, i have no idea why you're following me twice. but it's ok with me!

    keep close, sweet- A Million Miles in a Thousand Years sounds interesting. What's it about?

  4. I've been reading a lot of stuff too!
    Right now, I'm reading Are you there vodka, it's me chelsea? it was a best seller and i thought it might be something good. it's cute/enjoyable so far i havent finished it. Previously I read Push by Sapphire (very different/graphic, but good)
    Most people seem to enjoy Chuck Palahniuk (fight club, choke etc..)

  5. Alexis- I've tried reading several Chuch Palahniuk books, but i've never been able to get into any of them. I've been contemplating reading "Are you there Vodka, it's me Chelsea", so i think i'll pick it up now. Thank you!

  6. It's just a writer's struggle with Christianity. I'm someone who grew up jaded by the church and I'm slowly taking a new path to it and I love the book because he's on a pretty imperfect path too so it doesn't make me feel like I need to be this pressed and polished golden child. It's definitely not for everyone but it's just one of those books that fits my life so perfectly right now :)
