|The one shot where he looked human!|
My personal life is just a bit emotionally tumultuous right now, and I'm having a v hard time pausing to read -- or focusing long enough to digest words on the page! The biggest stressor has been a sudden need to find new housing -- we have to leave our apartment in August and it wasn't something we planned on doing. Scrambling to find a place we can afford (and that can fit a us and a new baby!) is tough and not a stress I need right now!
In happy news, I'm at 21 weeks and things seem to be going really well. I started to feel the Little Reader moving, which is pretty incredible. But last Mon I had to euthanize my cat of 16 years and I'm still feeling heartbroken about that. (I admitted to friends I'm devastated to learn I don't have reserves of steely resolve like a romance novel heroine; instead, I'm kind of like a bag of cotton balls, apparently. Wet ones.)
I promise to return to book reviews -- starting tomorrow, actually, with the fabulous The Tilted World. I inhaled Sally Beauman's The Visitors, too, and will hopefully review it soon -- my list of to-be-written reviews gets longer and longer!
I've just started Jeff VanderMeer's Annihilation -- speculative/sci-fi-ish-ness isn't always my thing (I'll admit, the science makes me cross-eyed) but I just love VanderMeer's stuff and I could use some serious escapist fiction right now. Throw recs at me if you've got 'em -- what are you reading?
