The weather thus far this Autumn has been insanely mild which is good for me because I have been dragging my feet on my yard and garden chores. It's an Autumn for slackers! Thank you weather goddesses! I did plant the garlic today and about a third of the flower bulbs I impulse bought a few weeks ago. The bulbs were Grape Hyacinth and Alliums that will hopefully look like the below next spring.
WATCHING, READING and BLOGGING
Arrow! Season 3 now. Oliver's just about to get shirtless on a mountain top with Ras Al Ghul. Not that I have any particular fondness for that scene.
Finished Since the Last Time I Posted
- The Chessmen by Peter May: The last in a trilogy of mysteries set on the Outer Hebrides.
- Fables (Vol 21 and 22) Happily Ever After and The Farewell by Bill Willingham et al.: The last two volumes in the Fables series. Sad.
- Serenity (Vol. 2 and 3) Better Days and Other Stories and The Shepherd's Tale by Joss Whedon et al.: These suddenly appeared at my library much to my delight. I particularly liked The Shepherd's Tale though I'm not sure I buy the overall concept as Shepherd Book's back story.
- Something Wicked This Way Comes by Ray Bradbury: I'd like to try and read all of Ray Bradbury's books - I love his writing. I thought this would make a nice Autumn/Halloween read.
- The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker: This is The Sword and Laser book club pick for this month and it's been on my TBR for ages. I am loving this but the audio expires tomorrow at the library and I still have a couple hours (or more) of audio. It feel's like it is taking me forever to read but it's just a smidge under 500 pages.
- Don't Hex With Texas by Shanna Swendsen: Book 4 in the Enchanted. Inc. series. Much fun!
Added to the TBR:This is a list of books that I have added to my Goodreads TBR list this week. It helps to burn the books I want to read a little more firmly into my mind, maybe get them on some other folks TBRs and gives me a chance to recognize a lot of the awesome bloggers that add stuff to my TBR!
Nothing this week.
On the BLOG LAST WEEK:
It ended up being kind of a crazy week so I got nothing really posted except all my readathon posts last Saturday. Speaking of which the readathon was awesome and I lasted until 3 am:).
