Happy Tuesday-That-Feels-Like-Monday! Hmmm, I'm not sure if that's cause for celebration or not.
|Stair Pose don't like culottes|
- Top - Annalee and Hope, consignment; last seen here in August 2014
- Culottes - Jac Dale, vintage 80s, thrifted; last seen here in June with plain ol' white
- Shoes - Half Truth Tanya, Fluevog; last worn here with purple plaid in May
I was hemming and hawing about these green culottes, but you know? When am I ever going to find emerald green culottes again? For $4.00? How about never?
- Necklace - Nygard, consignment
- Obi belt - thrifted
- Earrings - Stella and Dot, consignment
And that reason is...Literary Stylings time, yo! I was remiss and skipped the August edition (okay, full disclosure: I didn't read more than 1 book in July. It was a busy month).
Here's what I've read. Lois McMaster Bujold's "Barrayar", which is the second novel enclosed under the name "Cordelia's Honor."
I also finished another bathroom book, "We'll Always Have Paris" by Ray Bradbury.
Our most recent Book Club book up for discussion in a couple of weeks is David Mitchell's "Ghostwritten", picked by Yvonne.
I just finished this book on Sunday, "NOS4A2" by Joe Hill. Get it, Nosferatu?
Loved Vic, the lead character - I really liked all the characters, which is unusual for me (there is usually one annoying character in most books, I find). I loved the stilted speech of Charlie Manx (reminded me of Christoff Waltz), and the frenetic pace of the story. Great, killer (pun intended) ending. Recommended. I only have one book left of Hill's to read ("Horns" - I gave it to L for Christmas, so I can't read it until L does, arg), and then I'll be finished all of his stuff.
So, this is my inspiration for Literary Stylings! I wore all green, just like a very evil Christmas elf. Hee!
And what have you read lately?
