Don't Bother Me...I'm Reading

Mail Call!
Got a package from the lovely and talented Miss Angie from My So-Called Chaos. She's also the co-hostess for CG Swaps so I knew I was in good hands.

I just love when everything is packaged all cute and comes with little cards!

Book She Loves: Two Kisses for Maddy: A Memoir of Loss and Love by Matthew Logelin

It's non-fiction. And it's incredibly sad. Those are normally two things I stay away from and the combination would send me running, but Miss Angie is fabulous so I will give it a try.

Book I Might Like: 1984 by George Orwell

I didn't read this one in high school. Since I've been on my dystopian kick, I hear a lot of references to this book, so I'm looking forward to finally being in the loop. And, hey, Miss Angie hasn't read it, either.

Book From My Wishlist: A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L'Engle
I read this forever ago. It's one of those books I want to share with my daughter, but can't remember enough about the storyline to get her interested. Soooo looking forward to opening this one. It will be like getting back in touch with an old friend.

And it wasn't just good reading goodness! Lookit!

Miss Angie obviously knows about my cupcake obsession. And I am loving the little notebook! It has already replaced a badly tattered one in my purse.

Thank you to Miss Angie and Beth for hosting yet another awesome swap! Just in case you were wondering, I sent books to That Spacey Chick at Ramblings of an Obsessive Compulsive.

Since the Groundhog saw his shadow, I think I will take a cue from him and curl up in bed with these books and not come out again until I'm finished. Or six weeks. Whichever comes last.

Happy Reading!

Yay! A Wrinkle in Time and 1984 are two of my favorites. :D
Thanks for joining us with the swap, and happy reading!

I've read 1984, but dystopia isn't my cup of tea, so it wasn't for me, but it's a classic. My husband recommends "Island" by Aldous Huxley if you're into dystopian thems.

I love A Wrinkle in Time, but like you, haven't read it since I was a kid. Will have to re-read that soon.

I am sooo glad you like them! I knew I was taking a chance on the Two Kisses for Maddy book, but it was just so good I had to send it!

Also A Wrinkle in Time is one my absolute faves too! :)

1984 is a great book. It took me awhile to get into it, but once I did I couldn't put it down. And I was amazed by how much of our vocabulary comes from that book.
