My teaser this Tuesday:

I watched her while she swept up the glass; today would be a glittering day, full of tiny sparkling things. There was no point in hurrying with my breakfast, because today I could not go out until we had neatened the house, so I lingered, drinking milk slowly and watching Jonas.
~pg. 89, We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson


*My note:
I'm excited to read this book! Family, an estate, poison, danger - Who could ask for more? It sounds terrific and seems like it will be a fast read. I think it is just what I need to help me get out of my fog that I've been in where it has been hard for me to concentrate on pretty much anything including reading. I'm still working through some books that I should be done with but I've had so much of life events get in the way that my brain has been foggy. I'm sure I'll get through it and be able to read better and faster again. Please hurry and calm down, I think, because I can't wait! After all, The N.Y. Times Book Review states about this book: A marvelous elucidation of life...a story full of craft and full of mystery!

It does sound really good!! :)

I'm in the same boat as you - too many live events have made me foggy and not want to read :/

So far every book I've started I drag my feet to read the book!

About this blog

Welcome Readers~to my blog! A tiny extension of myself and my life. Here, I'll share this journey through my top passions in my life - reading, writing, and creating. You can expect to read poetry, view my papercrafts and read design related posts. Every once in a while, I hope you'll grasp an honest feel of my heart. If you haven't noticed, I love flamingos! I think they are beautiful birds. *Thanks for your attention.*
She is pure Alice in Wonderland, and her appearance and demeanor are a nicely judged mix of the Red Queen and a flamingo.
