Hey, hey everyone. Are all of you having as lazy a Sunday as I am? I’ve done nothing but read a bit and watch Christmas movies today. It’s been blissful, but at the same time I wish I were getting something accomplished.
Oh well, everyone’s allowed a day like this every now and then. (right?)
So, anyway, on with the talking about the books. I’m so excited because I’m only 1 book away from having read 100 books so far this year. I can’t believe I’ve gotten through so many! (Nor do I think I’ve ever gotten through this many in a year ever before – except maybe when I was young.) I’m almost finished with one book and have a few due back to the Library this week, so I know I’ll pass 100 books. And, that makes me uber happy.
So, what all happened this week in books other than getting so close to such an amazing goal I didn’t even set? Here it is.

*I attempted to read Know Your Beholder by Adam Rapp. I was super excited to read it because it sounded interesting, and the cover was gorgeous. But, sadly, it was terrible, and I couldn’t read it, couldn’t even force myself to try.
Here’s the short review I published on Goodreads:
I made it to page 15 of this book. I’m surprised I made it that far. I don’t have time for this misogynistic, self-righteous, woe-is-me, hipster crap. Bye. (Shave your nasty, smelly beard and get over yourself bro.)
