Maestro Mayhem

Reading Update
Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides. Wow. Just wow. This Pulitzer-winning novel kept me enthralled for over 500 pages. It was also one of my TBR Challenge books. I’ll be reading Eudenides’ novel The Virgin Suicides in the near future!
Cast On, Bets Off by Jack Olesker. I know, I just picked it up Saturday, but I was curious. It’s about yarn store owners Max and Lisa, who are deputized by Max’s brother to help solve a murder. It seemed a wee bit overdone at times, but I think that might just be because I read it right after Middlesex… It’ll be interesting to see how the characters develop in the next book. The Yarn Harlot has a tiny spot in the book, which was very fun to read. Strangely, as I was reading it, May walked up and ate part of the front cover while I gaped at her! That’s an unpleasant new development in the her ongoing snacking on household items project.

Speaking of May, I shall momentarily distract you with cute pictures of her, since I got nothin’ else. I’m nearly done with the toddler dress – just a bazillion ends to weave in. And I’m working on a secret project, which we all know is bad for the blog, but necessary for the life. 🙂

  1. I loved reading Middlesex! Have you read the Poisonwood Bible? That’s another one I loved reading.
    May and Kally have so much in common. Some of my text books have little kitty teeth marks on the corners. I assume jealously is the cause – she wants my lap and the book, well, you know where the book can go.

  2. Clearly you have more hour in your days than the rest of us. There is no other explanation for how much you read. I found Middlesex fascinating, too. Second the vote for The Poisonwood Bible; a great, great book, as was Prodigal Summer.

    Tell May the Conductor she has to come clean toothpaste and spit off my keyboard. I think you hit a new high for captions today.

  3. so glad you loved middlesex. i really think it’s one of my all time favorite books. i’ve convinced several people to read and they’ve all loved it, too. i think about it regularly and look forward to reading it again. i can’t wait for his next one, although i worry that one will be hard to top.
