Books Books Everywhere and More Illness

2 days back in school and my son was out the rest of the week with a stomach bug. Puking Pastilles. As bad as it was, it could’ve been worse so for that I’m thankful. He’s back to his normal adorable, annoying self so it’s all good.

I got a lot read this week though mainly because I got a cold Monday morning and felt downright awful so I wrapped myself in a comforter, snuggled down into my recliner, and listened to Clash of Kings by George R. R. Martin.

Off topic, my dad recently pointed out that his name is GRR Martin. I laughed because of how true it was. I’m now finishing Season 4 of Game of Thrones and he just killed one of my favorite characters. Right before I went to bed. Sucked. Seriously.

Grr Martin. Grr.

That man is evil.

So with my week off from doing anything remotely useful in the way of writing, I managed to make a lot of headway in my reading.

Currently Reading:

I don’t normally get so much read in so little time but The Guardians books are for kids and are therefore quick/easy reads. I don’t normally read anything in one sitting either but I was able to with those books. And the other two books, which are disgustingly long, I started a loooooooong time ago so the fact that I finished them around the same time only looks impressive.

It feels good to be able to mark off books that I put up on Goodreads ages ago. I can’t believe I finished Clash of Kings before March. I thought for sure I would’ve been at it in the summer still. I should start Book 3, Storm of Swords, but I’m exhausted and need a break. There are a lot of other books I want to get around to reading and/or finishing. Too many to keep track of but I have Goodreads for that, thank goodness.

About Katie St. John-Shin

I believe in living life and not letting it pass you by. I mean, come on, if you really want to do something but don't have the courage to do it so you let the opportunity disappear, you may regret it for the rest of your life. How can you know what you're capable of unless you go for it? Like every writer, I naturally plan on becoming a world-famous writer. I love reading, writing, fitness, coffee, watching my favorite movies/shows, listening to music, and trying new things even if they're sometimes terrifying. I'm a stay-at-home mom, a writer, and a POP Pilates instructor. I didn't think I'd succeed at that last one but I did it! I confronted my fears, dealt with things I didn't want to deal with, and completed the training! POP Pilates classes are coming soon to mid-Nebraska!
