Sunday Book Club: Murder on the Orient Express

Hiatus over!  I went on vacation over Thanksgiving break to Hawaii, and got sick on the way home.  I was so sick that I was in bed for 4 days. It was just a bad cold, but I had zero energy.  In fact, I had to stop decorating my Christmas tree just to rest.  Christmas… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Murder on the Orient Express

Sunday Book Club: This Is How It Always Is

 I recently had someone ask me what genre of books I enjoyed the most. In reality, I enjoy almost everything.  As a rule I don’t really like young adult, or science fiction, or romance.  But there are probably several books in those genres that I have I read and enjoyed.  Variety is the spice of… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: This Is How It Always Is

Sunday Book Club: Today Will Be Different

 So this book is perfect for this week.  I’ve been trying to think about what I want to say tonight, besides reviewing the book, and here’s what I came up with: stomach flu.  We’ve had the stomach flu in our house this week.  It’s always super fun, hearing that “Moooooommmmm? I just threw up.”  This… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Today Will Be Different

Sunday Book Club: My Absolute Darling

Almost constantly in the evenings.  I was sick of listening to the radio, and then I discovered podcasts.  I did the popular ones, including and particularly Serial, and then I found The Hilarious World of Depression.  This podcast has completely… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: My Absolute Darling

Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Before I get into this week’s book, I’d like to review how I did last week with my goals. Eating Habits: Uh, well, I did okay.  I didn’t drink carbonated beverages (yay!), or sugar (for the most part, I did cheat yesterday, but that was the only time), but I couldn’t stay away from white… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: No One Is Coming To Save Us

Sunday Book Club: American Gods

Well, obviously, I missed last week.  Lots of things have been happening, most of which have been out of my control.  Life has become hectic and messy, which causes me to be sort of at loose ends.  I’ve discovered, however, that my mental sharpness and health is heavily dependent on my environment. If my house… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: American Gods

Sunday Book Club: Station Eleven

Summer is officially over here: we got snow today.  It didn’t stick and it was more a “wintry mix”, but it is freezing cold.  Sigh.  Winter is always such a hard time for me, especially being in Utah.  I don’t ski, so the snow really doesn’t do much for me.  Winters are very long and… Continue reading Sunday Book Club: Station Eleven
