Just Relaxing

I had the best morning today. I woke up 9:45am, threw some clothes to wash and read my new book for about 3 hours. It was so nice to just have time to myself! Rusty was sleeping all morning so the house was super quiet and I was able to just sit back and relax.

I'm currently off reading the Sookie Stackhouse books because the late
st book hasn't been released in paperback yet & I'm so not going to pay $24.95 for a hard cover book. I'd rather wait, I'm cheap. So now I'm reading The Likeness by Tana French. I read her first book, In the Woods, six months ago and really enjoyed it so I thought I'd buy her second book (this one's sort of a sequel to the first one).

When I went to Barnes & Noble I didn't really think I'd be into it so I gave it the 'first 3' test (which is me reading the first 3 pages of the book & if I want to keep reading after those 3 pages, I buy it. Otherwise, I leave it). Well, as you might have
guessed...I didn't want to put it down. This author is such an amazing writer! She literally makes you feel like you're in the book living the story. Both books are written in the first person and she describes everything with such detail. I hope she keeps writing more books, I'd totally buy them.

Anyhow, I had a great time reading in the quietness of a semi-empty house this morning and I also got some laundry done in between chapters (Yay me!).
So far, this book is really good, but I'm only half way through, I'll have to keep you posted on how i feel about it as I get closer to the end.

Now I'm off to watch Say Yes to the Dress!, which was DVR'd last night & then maybe read a little more of my book after that. Rusty's back to playing WoW (for those of you who don't have a NERD husband, that's World of Warcraft) so he won't be bugging me for attention anytime soon...I hope.
