A Book in Review: The Mermaid Chair

I am trying to read 30 books by the time by birthday gets here!  Just a little over 2 months... and I have only read 17 books.

The 17th was 'The Mermaid Chair' by Sue Monk Kidd.  I liked her book 'The Secret Life of Bees', so I thought I would enjoy this book as well.  I did end up liking this book.  It kept me interested until the very end.  I lost a bit of interest in the last chapter... at that point, I thought that perhaps we could have arrived at the point of the story.

All in all, a good book, and I do recommend it.

3 out of 5 stars, I liked it

Off to the 18th book!  Have a great week everyone!

Time Passes Quickly

Goodness me!  It has been one month since I have last written on my blog.  Time is current passing quickly...  I suppose it always does.  School has been back in session for just about a month.  Progress reports are due soon and my students are in full swing of art projects, journals, and being teenagers.

I've been trying to stay on top of my reading, because I am supposed to have 30  books read by November 26th.  We'll see how that goes.  I am currently on #17... 'The Mermaid Chair' by Sue Monk Kidd.

It's been so hot around here in So Cal, that I cannot sleep... or think... or move.  Hopefully it will begin to cool off soon, for my sake and for the sake of all that must be around me.  Ha ha.

I miss dancing and I think I could eat ice cream everyday... just like I did while in the Czech Republic this summer.

Well, that is the end of this random post.  Enjoy the rest of your week!
