Suddenly Sunday is hosted by Svea from Confessions and Ramblings from a Muse in the Fog. Please stop by her lovely blog if you get the chance.
So my pretty little readers, what a crazy week here. First off, I have finally recovered from my Fly boys losing the finals to Chicago. It was a tough loss but in retrospect, they had a magical run. They made the playoffs on a shoot-out, sudden death win, came back against Boston, and did the best they could. They have some things to fix in the off season, but the heart, determination and strength they displayed is just awesome. A big thank you to them for what they did.
As far as reading goes, I am all over the place right now, and feeling a bit disorganized. As usual I have reviews to write, and such, but I am also starting to feel like I need to re-evaluate my blog and blogging. Of course I'm thinking of redecorating, but I am also reconsidering the challenges I have entered, due in large part to a post by Trisha from eclectic/eccentric. I know I join challenges because I see pretty pictures and think, "Oh yes! Must join to post that," but I'm not very good with the follow through.
I created my own challenge (Reading Resolutions) to help with that and have promptly fallen off that wagon too. I have the classics I want to read, but I also have ARCs I want to read too. I'm getting better with saying no to requests. Unfortunately, Sourcebooks and FSB Assoc. publish books I enjoy, and thus feed my book addiction. And that's cool. Reading is enjoyment for me. It is a passion for me, as much as hockey and knitting are as well. Reading and blogging shouldn't feel like work.
So over the next few weeks, I will tweak my blog and how I do things. I won't give up all of my challenges, because I have met some really lovely people from a few of them, especially my own. That is a perpetual work in progress in anyway. So don't be surprised if you stop by one day, and say, "What the heck happened over here!" It's a good thing.
In other news, so many of you love Vampire Diaries, like my girlfriend at work, so I gave it a good college try. After two episodes, I can safely say it's not for me. It's too young (everything is not epic), the guys are too thin and pretty for me (I like my men with some meat on their bones), and I'm generally disinterested. There are other shows which have attracted my attention (Sons of Anarchy, Justified), and some others I would rather spend time checking out (Supernatural, Dark Shadows 1991). And don't get me started on summer shows just starting. (My boy is hot over there!)
Well that's everything that is going on right now in my little world. What is going on in yours?
Have a wonderful week and happy reading :)
