Bookish and Not-So-Bookish Thoughts is hosted by Bookishly Boisterous. This is the place where we can talk about anything that pops into our minds, bookish or otherwise. Your rants (good or bad) are welcome here too. Come and share anything you want with us.
I have been missing in action for a bit again. This time it is for a good reason though. I completed my ninth (and hopefully final) chemo session. Yay!!
I don't know if it was just because I knew it was the last treatment but this time the side effects really threw me for a loop. Luckily it is past tense now. In a few weeks' time I will go for tests and we will take it from there. But for now . . . yay!!!!! Finished!!!
1. Bookwise, I finished THE RAPTURE that I spoke of last time and the review is below this post if you want to read about my thoughts. It was one of those books that just had the perfect ending. The author got it just right.
Next up I started Her Fearful Symmetry by the author of The Time Traveler's Wife but it just got too much about halfway through. Some parts were fascinating - especially the scenes of one of the characters that has Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. But otherwise, I found my mind wandering - always a bad sign. I might try again at a later stage.
Yesterday morning I started Slice of Cherry by Dia Reeves. Wow, weird does not begin to describe the craziness that is happening on the pages of this book. I am loving it! The story starts when the two daughters of the infamous Bonesaw Killer catches an intruder in their bedroom. It is definitely horror as the two sisters give in to their killer instincts but there are also some fantasy with the weird goings-on in town. And I love the cover - just look at it! Not a book that I found around the blogosphere a lot but this might be a hit with me.
2. I love quirky movies and loved the absolutely awfulness that was Sharknado. We laughed so hard at all the cliches - it was wonderful. This evening SHARKNADO 2 will be unleashed in my house. Can't wait to watch it!
