Update: Still Alive!

I promise, I’m still alive and kicking, but school is simply consuming all my spare time this semester! I’ve read very little, although I did read Neil Gaiman’s Stardust and Ilona Andrews’ Gunmetal Magic (from the Kate Daniels world. This one is about Andrea and Raphael. That was a fun book, reading about those crazy boudas!

I’ve also been reading Pride and Prejudice. I confess: I’m 40 and I am just now reading it. I’ve tried a few times before but never made it past the first few chapters before. I’ll actually finish it this time! I’ve been losing myself in the language; it’s quite different from what I usually read and I’m finding it’s very immersive for me this time around (maybe I just need to be able to lose myself for a few minutes at a time and escape the school pressures). I have to admit: I’m looking forward to treating myself to the 1995 version of Pride and Prejudice once I’ve finished. Colin Firth. Enough said. I’ll probably shanghai my youngest daughter and make her watch it with me Smile I don’t think anyone else in the house will tolerate it, but that’s ok. Anyway, back to school stuff, I’ll write more when I’ve finished the book!
