This is probably going to be a quite short, and maybe pointless blog, but I have this goal to blog three times a week, so need to do it. Plus, I’m really hungover and forcing myself to do this today will hopefully help me do it more often when I’m in this state.
Shockingly for me, I’ve also done quite a lot of reading today – usually it’s way too much effort, but I had to know what happened. I was reading The Baby Club by Rowan Coleman. Loved it. I did like that although it was predictable (it’s chick lit – fo course we know what’s going to happen) there were a couple of curve balls in it too to keep you guessing. I also liked that the MC’s other half wasn’t everything you dream of – he had flaws.
I was given The Girl Who Played with a Hornet’s Nest for my birthday this weekend (bit of a late present as I’d not really seen my friend since my birthday). So excited to read it, BUT I feel like I need more romance in my life at the moment (probably the hangover blues but still) so I’ve started another book instead. It was a really hard decision – I went to the library the other day and got a couple of books out, then also my housemate came home with a book I’ve been dying to read last week. Plus you know, I’ve got that 80 odd TBR book pile in my room.
But, this book’s been shouting and screaming at me to read it since I picked it up at the library, so what could I do? It’s called Love in the Air by James Collins. I’ll let you all know how it goes – have a feeling it’s gonna be a good one!
‘Woes’ is maybe a little strong, but I like the alliteration. And really, I am going to have a little moan.
It’s my own fault – no one forced me to drink copious amounts of (free!!) champagne last night. There was no gun to my head – but like I said, it was FREE! How can you not?
So obviously I’ve not done any writing today. Or any editing of my writing course assignment, or Italian Infatuation. Damn. Yesterday I also did a pretty bad show of writing – 158 words. Not good enough. So much for June being a new start. Tomorrow! Definitely tomorrow!
Actually no, I’m going to try to write something when I get home. I won’t feel like it, but tucked up in bed I’m sure I can stretch to 250 words. Surely I can. The only reason I didn’t make it that high yesterday was that I ran out of time at work then was out all night (then it didn’t even cross my mind after the 3rd or 4th champagne!).
I did really enjoy Sex and The City 2 though. I’ve heard it got pretty bad reviews, but it was exactly what I expected, and I went home feeling warm, fuzzy and happy. Just what you want.
I have done a couple of productive things today. First I updated my ‘Currently Reading’ picture to the side of my blog to show 1984. I also updated my Reading/Read page with the novels I’ve read recently. Then I added links from that page to the novels I’ve reviewed. Oh, I also went through the books I’ve read for the Thriller & Suspense Reading Challenge and wrote the books I need to review. And emailed my ex to ask him to set up my T&SRC page so I can add them there too. And now I’ve nearly done a blog. See, the day’s not been a waste afterall.
Tomorrow I’ll get on with some writing, and my writing course. No excuses!
