Absolutely nothing. But that's what you'll find in this post. Just a few random topics on this dreary Thursday afternoon. And so it begins...
My siblings and I decided randomly on Monday to watch Doctor Who and now we're hooked. Even though I had never seen a single episode, I was really familiar with it 'cause of Pinterest. I already know all the famous quotes and lots of spoilers, but that doesn't take the fun out of it one bit. But now I'll never be able to look at mannequins, banana, or screwdrivers the same.
We finished the first series last night and also watched the first episode with Ten, The Christmas Invasion. I loved Nine, he was fantastic (ha!), but I think I'm going to like Ten just a wee bit more. What can I say, David Tennant is just plain awesome.
This sums up what happened to my siblings and I:
I could keep going on and on about all the neat things in Doctor Who, but I think I'll save that for a post of it's own! It might be a little while before I actually post it (I wanna watch more episodes with Ten first!), but just know that it's in the works.
Another favorite iPod photo. Sparkly shoes (my mom calls them my Wizard of Oz shoes, even though they're not red), colorful tights, and fall leaves.
In one months time I've managed to read three novels. I think that's a personal record, as I've never been a fast reader. My list of books to read is waaayyyy longer than what I'll ever be able to get to, but at least I have no shortage of suggestions when I am ready for a good book! The books I read are:
On Distant Shores by Sarah Sundin
Sarah is my all time favorite historical fiction author. Here stories are set in WWII, one of my favorite eras, and I've read all five of her books. You really get deep into the characters minds and they seem so real. By the end of each book, you feel like you actually know the characters. With Every Letter was my favorite, but then I read On Distant Shores and I think it would have to take it's place. Now I'm looking forward to reading In Perfect Time, which comes out next summer.
Ransome's Honor by Kaye Dacus
This one had been on my to read list for years and when I saw it sitting on the library shelf I finally gave it a go. The first half was kinda slow and doesn't skip ahead and do a recap of things that happen, which made it seem kinda long. But other than that I was a good read. There were many characters which kept things interesting, yet it wasn't overwhelming or confusing. I also really liked Julia, the main character. Right now I'm reading the second book, Ransome's Crossing.
The Pursuit of Lucy Banning by Olivia Newport
This book wasn't the most amazing book ever, but it wasn't bad. It was worth reading once and am glad I did. Although I liked the characters, I feel you didn't get to know them as well as you could have. I thought Olivia's writing style was fantastic, though, and I am planning on reading the second book in the series.
