It's been a while, hasn't it? I have been in a bit of a rut. I thought the Bloggiesta in March would help. I wrote up a nice to-do list and had every intention of completing it. But I didn't do a single thing on that list. And I haven't really blogged much since then. I'd like to attribute my absence to something specific, but there really isn't any reason for it. I just haven't felt like blogging. That's probably not a good thing when you're a blogger!
As far as reading goes, I finished The Changing Season by Steven Manchester about a week ago and that was it. I'm halfway through Twisted River by Siobhan MacDonald. I started that one while on vacation. Did I tell you about my vacation to Universal? I don't think that I did. More on that later. Above is a picture of the other books on my TBR list for this month. I just picked them up at the library last night. The Catcher in the Rye by J. D. Salinger is my April book club selection, and Silver Bay by Jojo Moyes is my attempt to get back into reading for fun. I need something quick and easy, and I find Jojo Moyes books to be just that.
I did write a couple reviews a few weeks ago: State of Wonder by Ann Patchett and Journey to Munich by Jacqueline Winspear. Then I lost my desire to write, and have been silent for 10 days!
During the last week of March, we went on vacation to Universal in Orlando, Florida. We had such a great time, especially in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. They did an amazing job of recreating the scenery of the books and movies. We were all quite impressed. Carter loved the Butterbeer, but the rest of us weren't big fans. The kids got chocolate frogs and we ate at the Three Broomsticks. It was a great time for everyone! Here are a few photos.
I'd like to say that I'm going to get back into blogging regularly but I have said that many times and haven't managed to do so. Even this blog post was interrupted last night and finished this morning. I do plan to continue reading and reviewing. I should have my review for The Changing Season up this week, and when I finish Twisted River, I'll try to write that one as well. We'll see how it goes...
