Sunday Snippets #5

This past week has been peaceful and I am getting back my reading mojo, slowly but surely. 

Nothing much has happened aside from trying to get back to normal living (and sleeping) rhythm after the funeral last weekend (I had to wake up 4am-ish for two nights in a row and that is not cool, yo). There has been work and quite nice weathers - not too hot, but definitely summery. 

I finished a book - Death at La Fenice by Donna Leon, it's a murder investigation story. It wasn't very special and I don't know yet if I am fascinated with the detective person at all, but since I'm too lazy to pick up another detective series I'll probably continue with this one if I feel like that kind of a book again.

I started Golden Boy by Abigail Tarttelin after that (which I won from Christina at A Reader of Fictions - thanks a bunch! and here is her review). Even though I am still reading several other books, I felt like I needed a new, and a fast one. And this one is good because I'm reading like a 100 pages a day of it, which is really quite voluminous, considering. 

Robert as a giant bumble-bee. Or a furry space creature. We used ice-cream caps to change his identity.
Been watching:  

Modern Family, Season 1 - I rewatched this with the boyfriend, who hasn't seen this series. I don't find many things on screen particularly funny, but this one is hilarious, and lack of annoying background laughter doesn't hurt either.

Downton Abbey, Season 3 - I think of this as a guilty pleasure :) 


  1. HAHAHA, Robert looks a bit like Princess Leia there! :)

    I'm glad you're getting back into your groove! I can't wait to see your review of Golden Boy. And I STILL haven't watched season 3 of Downton Abbey yet!!! Shame on me.

    1. :D Robert is very tolerant cat - you can do whatever with him, he never complains or gets angry. He is just very quietly annoyed :)

      I'm almost at the end with Season 3 of Downton Abbey, some pretty dramatic stuff is happening so it'll be interesting.


Leave a comment if you feel like it - it warms my little bookish heart. :)
