TSS – Putting the right foot foward

Posted by in Blogging, Books

It’s always wonderful when you can sit back and say, “I definitely started this year off the right way.”  I decided to read Anne of Green Gables as my first book of 2010 and I’m so glad I did.  It was beautiful and heartbreaking and amazing.  Everything everyone ever said it would be, but I just needed a shove to get to it.   Fortunately I have the rest of the series waiting for me when I return to school!  I also decided to read the graphic novel Blankets.  It absolutely blew me away.  I say a lot of times that a book makes me want to open it up and start reading it again right away.  Well, this time I actually did it.  I reread all 592 pages again.  I’ll be posting proper reviews of both Anne of Green Gables and Blankets this week, but I really can’t think of a better way to start off 2010.

I have a lot of books that I’m currently in the middle of, but I’m not quite sure which one I want to read today.  I think I might also do some crocheting, because I’m going to New York on Wednesday and I need something to keep me warm!  Maybe I’ll actually finish a pair of gloves!!

What are you reading today?

I’ll leave you with some images from Blankets, just so you can get a taste.

I’m so glad I read this book a second time.  I spent a little bit more time with each image and there were so many small things that I missed the first time.  There are genius parallels that I didn’t even notice when I read through it.  The ending informs the beginning, so you almost have to go back and reread.  Don’t worry, I’ll be talking about this one for a long time.
