Starting to Read Again

I miss reading.  I used to be able to curl up with a good book (sometimes for hours) and just let myself escape into the story.  The excuse is always that I don’t have the time, which is completely lame because I do have the time.  I might have to “sacrifice” a Facebook session or rousing game of Word Feud here and there, but there it is – the time.

For Christmas I received a good ol’ hardback copy of “The Shining Girls” by Lauren Beukes.

PLOT

“In Depression-era Chicago, Harper Curtis finds a key to a house that opens on to other times. But it comes at a cost. He has to kill the shining girls: bright young women, burning with potential. He stalks them through their lives across different eras, leaving anachronistic clues on their bodies, until, in 1989, one of his victims, Kirby Mazrachi, survives and turns the hunt around.”

Time travel … murder … suspense … a twist … I cannot wait to read this book!  Every day.  And I’ll let you know what I thought of it when I reach the end.  XO

The Best Gift

This year we brought a few of our family members to tears with this gift –

A mini book about little miss Ava.  It came out soooo cute!  We did a pic or two for each month of her existence and a few extra pages for some of her artwork and photos with family members.

We used Blurb to make the books and were really happy with the outcome.

I’m sure we will be making more books in the future … I’m thinking a wedding book would be great since I know I’ll never get around to printing photos and putting them in an album.
