Lazy Sunday Thoughts: Mastering the Margarita
First things first, I'm joining Alice's The Master and Margarita Readalong. I know there are no margaritas in this book, but I won't be happy until I make one during this readalong. (Alice thought there were ships involved so we're all confused.)
My copy has a sinister looking cat on the cover. Also Goodreads says there are witches in this book, so it meets my Witches for October criteria.
Oh, haven't I mentioned this? I have made myself promise to read "happy" witch books this October. No sad Salem witches, or European witches being burned at the stake, please. Good time witches only. I'm hoping The Witches of New York by Ami McKay makes the grade, as will Lolly Willowes by Sylvia Townsend Warner. Fingers crossed!
Today I wrote two reviews! WHO AM I? I don't know what came over me. My blog will have content this week! Yay! Stay tuned for thoughts of All the Things We Leave Behind and The Couple Next Door.
I'm in the middle of reading (listening to) Ghostland by Colin Dickey. I have a Volumes copy. No thanks to Netgalley. Lately, my Netgalley requests linger in pending purgatory forever. I don't know what's going on over there. At least I still have other avenues to snag books, and as always I can either buy or borrow books. No biggie. Anyway, I'm preferring to listen to books these days.
Not much else to report. I'm trying to cram as much as I can into my weekends now. There are so many books to read though. I'm trying!
