Came down with a bad cold — think it reached its peak yesterday. This had me disabled … couldn’t even play the word game on the iPhone, because I couldn’t think! 🙂 Yesterday was spent on the couch … sneezing, blowing nose. It’s a nasty, little bug that has me in its grip!
I’m reading Nicholas Sparks’ latest novel «The Longest Ride». Was on a waiting list for a long time, and I was so looking forward to reading it. When I first found out about this author — when I’d read the first book — I literally devoured all the others! This was my type of nightly reading.
However … I’m 80 pages into this latest one, and it still doesn’t have me excited. It’s strange, I can’t pinpoint what it is. It’s not bad, and I will finish it, for sure, but … it’s not like the other ones, where I couldn’t wait to pick it up and go on reading! Perhaps he was just trying too hard, or it’s just me?! Other people might love it!
Had the same feeling with Dan Brown’s «Inferno», but worse. There, I forced myself to finish it … it was like a tourist guide for Florence, Italy, even though the very last quarter of the book got exciting and I recognized the Dan Brown that I’d known before.
…back to the couch and the blanket!
