I am counting down the days until I have my life back. Only TEN more school days and then I can refocus!
That being said, things have slowed down at school, and I have been able to read a lot more than I have been. I'm in one of those big "reading spurts" where all I want to do in my free time is read (this is not a bad thing). I am taking advantage of this mood and plowing through books.
I read FOUR books this week, and while they may be mostly small little things, I feel incredibly accomplished. First up this week was finishing Silas Marner. I was only about 30 or 40 pages into it, and then I sat down and finished it one night this week. Next, I picked up Alice Ozma's The Reading Promise, which I already posted my thoughts on. After that was Virginia Woolf's A Room of One's Own, which you all must go and read as soon as possible. It was WONDERFUL. Then, I came home Friday night in the mood to read something fun and youthful, so I grabbed the copy of Veronica Roth's Divergent with the goal of getting a few chapters in. Needless to say, I read it in one 3 1/2 hour sitting. It was just what I needed, and it has been so long since I have stayed up late reading like that...I missed it.
I also started in on Vanity Fair, which is an absolute riot. I am already in love-let's hope the love affair continues.
A small part of me feels bad for not keeping up on posts, but for right now, I just want to enjoy my reading and free time. :) These little spurts only last so long, so I want to hold on tight and enjoy it!
