Lazy Sunday Thoughts: More Laziness

Pin It

Happy Sunday, ducklings! How's she goin'? Going good here. We've all recovered from the plague and are back in business. The hubs is on vacation now so I foresee many days of doing nothing. I get lazy when he's around.

I could talk about all the book blogging controversies on the internets but A. I’m trying to be less “bloggy” here and B. aren’t we tired of it? Anyway it’s all a matter of people saying “you should review like this and if you don’t you are a Big Meanie” and that’s just silly. Let’s move onward.

I don’t know if it’s the heat or the fact that I’m reading Les Miserables on the side but I can’t get into a serious book. Instead, I’m reading things like Spoiled by Heather Dicks and Jessica Morgan. It’s cotton candy for the brain but soooo entertaining. I even downloaded an audiobook, The Expats, but haven’t even turned it on yet. I’ve been listening to Bananarama and Blondie all week instead (raise your hand if you remember them!). It’s just that kind of week.

Apparently the Universe is in tune with my mood because Sourcebooks sent me a bunch of romances this week. How did they know?

Last night I watched a bookish movie One for the Money, based on the Stephanie Plum series. It was cute but not great. I don’t know why she didn’t go for that Ranger guy. Yoozers! I would like to start reading the series now though.

How’s this for bizarre? I dreamt I was reading 50 Shades of Grey. Just happened to be reading it in this dream. I feel like I was in that episode of Futurama where Fry discovers his dreams have ads in them. I even woke up wondering if I was reading it then realized I wouldn’t fork out the $$$ for it. Library? Ebook only please. Har-de-har-har. Anyway the waiting list is too long. I’m waiting for Gone Girl from the library and I’m 13th in the queue. I’m thinking I might need to buy it. Here’s the thing though: if I buy it I know it will languish months on my shelf. A library copy provides a sense of urgency. “I must read it now! I only have 2 weeks!” Am I the only person who does this?

I should wrap this up. The Photo A Day Challenge was quite challenging for me this week but I did it. Here’s what you’ll find on my Tumblr.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  1. A Place Beyond Courage, nice! I can't wait for that to come out in September.

    I sort of have that mentality for using the library. But my holds tend to come in batches together. Makes it tough to stick with it. On of my libraries allows 3 weeks for its Overdrive, so it sometimes sits on my Nook like a print copy on my shelf.

    1. I do that too and end up hurrying through it a couple of days before it's due.

    1. Hmm, not sure. I think I was surprised I was reading it.

  4. If you want to dream about a book, read Gone Girl right before bed. Yikes!

  5. A Place Beyond Courage holds a special place in my reading consciousness. I hope you enjoy it! She is one of my favourite historical fiction authors.

    Dreaming of Shades of Grey huh? All that marketing does seep in!

  6. A whole bunch of romances sound fun right now :p Though Les Miserables sounds fun too! This is going to be the year of Les Mis for me and Matt so I really should read it! We're going to see the broadway production which is coming here to New Orleans in November and then going to see the movie of course in December! And thank you for being sick of all of the blogging drama too :p Honestly, I didn't even know there was more drama going on, lol..I tend to ignore it completely these days, lol.

  7. I am #240 on the wait list for Gone Girl. Unreal!

    I decided this morning to put down a book I've been reading and I will not be picking it up again, ever. Instead, I opened up Hummingbirds and I am in the middle of Prisoner of Heaven.

  8. There's controversy? Oh, I didn't know! I stay out of that crap OR I rebel completely and just stop reviewing as much. Whasssup.

    Enjoy your laziness. It sounds heavenly.
