I am back with my crazy pace of reading! Since completing my The 100 Day Project, I have been taking it slowwwwww with my art side. As mentioned, I have started going for an oil painting class, so I basically only paint when I’m at my weekly class now, and maybe once or twice more during the week for homework or relaxing.
I know I started the year with a crazy pace of reading. It’s something that I would love to keep up, although I also have to remind myself to enjoy the books I read instead of just aiming to finish them. Ha!
At the start of March, as we approached Alexa’s birth date, I couldn’t stop thinking of her. She would have been 6. Some nights I couldn’t sleep. There were a lot of what ifs and if onlys and I wonders. I cried and I prayed and I cried some more.
At the end of last year, I decided that I really should put more time into reading books again. To help me meet this goal, I gave myself a reading challenge to finish 12 books this year. Well, I am very happy to say that I am already almost meeting the target!
The earth was the ultimate museum, recording and presenting a narrative of time… – Kate Morton, The Clockmaker’s Daughter
From the moment this book was opened until the last page was turned, one thought kept going through my mind: Such. A. Brilliant. Book. Every time I had to stop and put the book down for my normal life routines, I couldn’t stop thinking about it. It was almost haunting me. Sometimes when I thought about what I read in the pages, I would have goosebumps.
Sophie Kinsella is one of my favourite authors when it comes to light reading. I am not too much of a fan when it comes to her Shopaholic series, but I have read almost all her stand-alone novels and loved them.
