Nothing witty. Move along. Move along.

I spent the day up at my grandma's with the kids. I'm exhausted. For the most part we were spending time with my aunt and uncle who are visiting from Washington but we also went swimming. I'm sure we all remember how I have to sleep for many hours after swimming. Alas! I could not today. I was forced to stay awake and be social. Woe!

Seriously, though, we had a really good time. My aunt and uncle are hilarious. We had lots of good food. I managed to finish my book.
Book #57 - Peril at End House by Agatha Christie - I am reading this at the request of oddmonster who often asks me to read books. I thought this was a very good book. Not quite as lyrically written as The Hollows but still a delight to work your way through. Did I guess they bad guy? Heck no! I mean, do I ever? But I did pick up on some of the clues that are peppered throughout so I feel like I've come out ahead on this one! Woot!

I'm kid free tonight and I'm so tired I can barely keep my eyes open. Don't you love that? Blech.

I'm off.

I am all about taking over your reading list. *cue evil laugh*

Now, I LOVED the ending, but I have to say, I am going to disagree with you on the lyrical writing; Hollow for me, was so much less compelling. The heroine of Peril was just so intriguing and her story sold me. Not just that, but I loved the setting. Say it with me: plaaaaaaaaaaaceporn. Placeporn. It's lovely. I just keep seeing the drawing room with the French doors opening onto the garden and it is just too marvelous.

But I love that you read it for me. Gratzi, bella.

Perhaps I'll have to go back and read Hollow since I read it last year. I am very pleased that you recced this one. It was lovely indeed. and the place pron was quite nice. Quite.
