TSS What a week...
Posted by Ivana
The last week wasn't very fruitful when it comes to reading. I finished The Age of Innocence for the Global Classic Challenge. The only reason why I didn't post the review is that I forgot my reading journal with my favorite quotes, and doing the review without them would be like...chocolate chunkies without the chocolate. I loved the book, and I can't wait to share my favorite quotes with you. For a guy boring as Archer Newland, he did impress me several times.
Also, I started Wuthering Heights again. I'm near the point where I put it down last summer, but this time it's going to be different. Few months ago there was a discussion on not liking a book vs. not getting a book, and the conclusion was that some books demand a certain set of circumstances and a perfect timing. Hallelujah- mine seems to have come!
There is another book I started this week. It's The Tale of Time City by Diana Wynne Jones. When I was a kid I heard so much about her books, but never got to read any. It's what would today be labeled as Tween, and it's about a eleven-old girl in the time of WW II who finds herself traveling trough time. It's interesting to read a book about time traveling that was written in the year I was born.
My copy of Cleopatra's Daughter arrived this week. It's looks amazing. Michelle sent me a signed hardcover with a bookmark! Thanks, Michelle! I can't wait to start reading it, I read the first chapter and had to lay it aside until I finish the compulsory reading for college.
Friday was TWLOHA day. Since I didn't go out much, no one saw my tattoo. In the evening we went to see and Austrian movie, and that's when it came in handy since, well, I used a sharpy that glows in the dark!
Altogether, it was a bad week. I didn't feel like blogging , though I read a lot. I hope you guys had a better week, and I'll keep my fingers crossed that the week to come is going to be much, much better!
