We’re back! I have a myriad of pictures from our little vacation that I want to put up, but there’s also a pile of (clean) laundry on our bed that is calling my name. So for now, all I have is some book and hair updates, per usual:
I didn’t think I’d get a chance to read this past week since we’d be spending a lot of time in the car and reading while in motion used to make me sick. I packed my Kindle anyway and was pleasantly surprised when I realized that I could read in the car with no problem. This week, I read The Giant’s House: A Romance by Elizabeth McCracken. I have to admit that I was not a huge fan of this book. I kind of just wanted it to end the entire time. I think I mostly had a problem with the narrator. I wanted to like her, but I just couldn’t… And I don’t think she even cared that I didn’t like her! What is it with me and picking weird books lately?
I’m currently reading Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. I’d heard a lot of good things about this book, and I was so excited to finally start reading it. So far, I’ve had a hard time putting it down.
Up next: Olive Kitteridge by Elizabeth Strout
As for the topknot update:
This picture was taken at a Jack in the Box in Las Vegas. We stopped there to get gas and dinner, and I put my hair up sans mirror. It looks a little too effortless, so it barely passes. I give it a six.
Pictures from our trip to California coming soon!
Also, I’m thinking of starting a book club. Thoughts?
