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!

  1. Yay for reading! I had big plans to read today, but so far, no go. I did finish You Will Know Me by Megan Abbott yesterday, though, and that was good. Continued luck with your reading and reviews.

  2. I sat down today hoping to read while football was on the Telly but my book had pie in the first line first page and I've spent almost the whole day being distracted by social media bookiness.

  3. I actually wrote a blog post today too - but it's for the October edition of Six Degrees of Separation so my blog won't have content this week. I'm looking forward to yours, though. :-)

  4. I'm all for making margaritas as part of the readalong and correcting that OBVIOUS mistake.

  6. I read the first installment of Master & Margarita today AND scheduled my first post, so I'm feeling incredibly sanguine about this readalong. I anticipate that it will be super great. The readalong, at least. I cannot speak to the quality of the book itself.

  7. Margarita is a ship? Like the Nina, the Pinta, and the tequila margarita?

  8. I've been curious about this book. A lot of bloggers name it as their fave read ever.

  9. If there are no margaritas in the book, why put that as the title? It seems totally misleading to me, getting your hopes up for nothing. ;)

    Way to go on the reviews! I keep plugging away at writing one a day during the week. I don't think I will ever get caught up, but at least it keeps me in content and prevents the list from getting horribly long and intimidating.

    Fit in as much as you can on the weekend! How is the job?

    1. It's false advertising!

      The job is going okay. My adjusting to this new schedule and trying to keep on top of things is challenging though.
