If they were more capable and able-bodied I'd suspect that cats of setting me up! lol As it is, after the behavior of a couple of them last week, I'm considering making them live indoors and closing the windows and doors to the outside world! One of the cats find a whole fish in somebody's garbage (presumably) and brought it home! The cat dropped it outside right before coming inside, thank the lord! Gross!! Unfortunately, Huxley didn't do the same with the very large cockroach he brought home with him two nights ago. In fact he decided his new friend deserved the comfort of our bed! I think the people 4 blocks over heard my reaction to Huxley and his new friend! Oy! lolol And Bob has decided he's on a different diet...he won't eat most of the food flavors he's been devouring for months and months. aaarrrgghhh!
I think my reading slump is fading. I finished Sea of Poppies by Amitav Ghosh this week which was very good and very well written. I'm trying to decide if I want to read River of smoke. I'm really enjoying In the Woods by Tana French. The cat's veterinarian, who's awesome, loved this book but had major problems with The Likeness. I'm interested to see what I think when I get there. I'm also going to try to make some real headway with Don't Breathe a Word by Jennifer McMahon and maybe something lighter, as Diane from Bibliophile by the Sea suggested. I bought The Three Weissmann's of Westport by Cathleen Schine at the flea market month ago. I've wanted to read this book since soon after it was published. Lisa of Lit and Life is reading it now which is further incentive since I love reading the same book as a friend. Sherlock Holmes has also been helping me work out my reading slump. The stories are fantastic! I remember many of them from watching the episodes on Netflix but Sherlock Holmes character should definitely be experienced in print, he's fascinating. And Watson's great, too!
I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
