Miscellanea

Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts

Isle au Haut

 

  1. I keep waiting to have something meaningful to post about. You can clearly see how that is going for me.
  2. My baby just hit 9 months old. I know everyone says it, but I honestly don’t know how that happened. She might be one before I publish my next post…(I wish I was kidding)
  3. I haven’t been particularly satisfied since returning to work post “maternity leave.” I’m in the process of competing for a new job that would be both terrifying and fantastic. So wish me luck.
  4. I don’t watch much in the way of television, but I am very excited for the return of Outlander. I think it works better as a television series than as a book series (how long are those things?!).
  5. If I do get a new job, I will be using that as an excuse to buy new clothes. Regaining my former shape and size has not been a smooth process. I am working on it though.
  6. We recently returned from a 9 day trip to New England (including Isle au Haut, pictured above) and I still can’t get back in the groove of things (plus school just started again). I feel like I just need a push in the right direction, but there’s no one to give me that push (my husband is incredibly forgiving of my disorganization/need for take-out).
  7. Because I hardly visit this space anymore, I suspect I may see how difficult it is to switch BACK to wordpress.com (as opposed to wordpress.org). Anyone have any tips?
  8. On said vacation, I randomly decided to read out of my normal zone and bought Throne of Glass by Sarah J. Maas. It was fun, but as I read on in the series, I was reminded of exactly why I don’t start with that nonsense in the first place. The final book I read ended on a ridiculous cliffhanger. It’ll be nearly a year before the next one, and will I even remember my interest by that point? Sadly no.
  9. If any of you happen to stumble upon this post/haven’t entirely giving up on me putting a coherent sentence together, what is THE book of the summer? What have I missed?

    Wishing you luck with your prospective new job!

    I switched back to wordpress.com when my hosting expired a few months ago, and the process was super easy! I lost some images and formatting and archives since I no longer have the Ultimate Book Blogger Plugin, but a least all the writing is still there.

    Good luck with the prospective new job! (I always feel like searching for a new job is a full-time job in itself, so I hope this works out ok.)

    I’ve also been out of the loop for a while, so I have no idea what the book of the summer is (shame on me), but I just read A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman and it was absolutely fantastic. It made me both laugh and cry, which is always a good sign. I highly recommend it if you haven’t read it.
