Cozy Autumn Sunday


We've got classic New England Fall weather today. Harold was out wandering around the yard earlier this morning but the clouds have since opened up and now it's raining. Today is definitely a day for books, movies, bowls of soup and cups of tea.

I've been reading Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco. It's a YA mystery about a girl from the noble class who secretly is apprenticed to her uncle who is teaching her forensic medicine. I'm about halfway through it and so far I'm very annoyed by Thomas, who is also studying under her uncle and is her partner in trying to figure out who is committing the gruesome murders. He's always lurking, which seems to be a theme of the boy character in YA novels, and I think she should just tell him he's a creep instead of thinking to herself that it's strange that she seems to like him even though he's being a creep. Haha! Other than that it's fine and it's giving me some much needed success in the book-finishing-department. I am 15 books behind schedule on my Goodreads goal of reading 60 books this year. (That means I have TWENTY-NINE books to finish before the end of the year.) That seems a bit out of reach.

What's the weather like where you are today? Have you done anything exciting this weekend?
