Hello my fellow Bookworms!
I feel like life has been so hectic lately and the result is I have fallen so behind in my September Reads. It really upsets me that I haven’t been able to get everything I wanted to accomplish done. But I will try to finish the book I am currently reading and maybe one more before the week is up.
I start school this week, which is exciting! I am one of those rare individuals who actually loves school. I love learning new things or even freshening up on things I haven’t used in a long while. I actually can’t wait to see what my first assignments are and getting to do real academic research! This is going to be really interesting and will definitely let you all know how things are going.
This past week I finished Frankenstein. I totally forgot how pissed Dr. Frankenstein makes me feel. I totally sympathize with his monster during the entire book. He is like a child only a few years old. Of course he will seek revenge from a person who created him then was completely disgusted by him before he could even understand anything. The fact that all he wanted was a companion because he was lonely in a world that would not accept him and mistreated him was understandable. I felt so utterly compassionate towards the monster throughout the book. I did feel bad for Frankenstein, for all he has lost but again it was all his fault.
I am about 90% done with Interview with the Vampire. When I first read this book I absolutely HATED Lestat. After reading so many of the books in the series that hatred subsided to dislike. Re-reading this book brought back all those feelings. Lestat is a terrible creature. I understand that he is a vampire urghhhh…. You really love Louis throughout the book but you also understand that even after so many years as a vampire he is very much still human. He is weak by vampire standards but his human nature is beautiful. The way he views the world and describes everything so passionately, you just fall in love with him. And it doesn’t help that as I am reading I am picturing Brad Pitt! This is such a great book.
My 7 year old and I have begun brainstorming our children short stories. I will definitely keep you updated on that. I am very excited to be embarking on this journey with him. I am hoping that our books will elicit joy in the children who will read them. I also begun journaling again which I haven’t done in so long but there will be another post on that and the reasons why I have anxiety when it comes to journaling.
I have some really excited posts coming up this week for you all so please bare with me while I get myself together.
Until next time….
Peace, Love, and Read On! ❤
