Do you like my paper hearts? I've seen paper heart garlands around the interwebs and wanted to try it for myself. I didn't use these instructions from Mama's Magic but after searching around the web I found this most accurately describes what I did (Method B). I just sort of winged it. Give it a try yourself!
I used a romance ARC (advanced reader copy) that I read and couldn't do anything else with. I did have a falling apart copy of 1984 but I couldn't bring myself to punch hearts, of all things, out of it. I was skeptical of sewing paper but it worked quite well. It took me 3 or 4 tries (again, winging it) but eventually got the hang of it. Not sure what I'm going to do with them though.
I finished Affinity this week for the Readalong. So good! Sarah Waters is now at the top of my favorite authors list. I'm reading Sisters Red with Kelly and Pam. It's a retelling of Red Riding hood. It's good so far. I have one section of Jane Eyre left to read and I'm trying to finish The French Lieutenant's Woman for my book club. I'm not enamored with it. I finished The Hound of Death by Agatha Christie which was an audio book. More on that later this week.
I received two books in the mail this week: Spoiled by Heather Cocks and Jessica Morgan and Attachments by Rainbow Rowell. Funky name, hey?
I'm feeling like I have too many books going at once. Maybe I should concentrate on one or two, right? It doesn't really help that Goodreads is reminding me that I'm falling behind on my goal to read 100 books. Thanks, Goodreads, thanks a lot. I feel the way I do when Wii Fit asks me where I've been all week and how I should check in every day. What are you my Mom?
Speaking of Moms... I watched The Black Swan this weekend. Have you seen it? What a messed up movie. I liked it but it was craaaaaazzzzy. I felt sorry for her but, yeah, that whole thing was creepy.
So, read or watch anything exciting this week?
