I can’t believe we are in the final month of 2014. Time has really gone quickly this year and really in the last few months. I don’t feel prepared at all for this year to end. Over Thanksgiving my family was given news that my grandfather was very ill. I headed off to see him and returned home Sunday after a 15 hour car ride. I don’t recommend traveling the Sunday after Thanksgiving. We have been so wrapped up and worried about my grandfather it didn’t feel like the holidays were even here. I feel rather disheveled and disconnected but I’m hoping to get my head back into everyday life. If you could say a prayer for my grandfather I’d be very grateful.
I’ve found some solace in books so I’ve been reading as much as possible. I’m almost finished with Shutter and have started Court of Fives (thank you Sajda from Across the Words) and Gathering Darkness. I think Court of Fives is going to live up to all my expectations. Many years ago I read Kate Elliott’s adult fantasy series so I’m so, so excited to see her go to young adult. I read Now That You’re Here by Amy K. Nichols on the road and found it to be an entertaining read.
Here’s what I’m hoping to read this month:
My dear friend Stacee from Adventures of a Book Junkie is sending me The Orphan Queen so I’ll be starting that ASAP. I can’t wait to read it since I’ve heard great things. I don’t know what I’d do without my wonderful bloggy friends.
How does your December look? Are you ready for 2014 to end? I’ll say I’m looking forward to the books 2015 has to offer because they look wonderful-so much science fiction and fantasy.
