With this newfound love and social life, I have let my reading go to a great degree. We often find ourselves in the kitchen whipping up tasty meals or slow dancing through the living room to this or that song on the radio (yes, we really do--we're so cute it's gross!). I go watch him play pool (awesome) in a couple of leagues on Wednesday and Thursday nights, and we generally spend our weekends with friends or visiting my family. I couldn't be happier, but the reading really does need to pick back up.
This past week I finished one book--Ottoline Goes to School, by Chris Riddell, author of The Edge Chronicles. The book is soooo cute. It could probably be categorized as a graphic novel because it's so illustration-heavy, and the illustrations are just adorable.
Ottoline is the daughter of collectors who are often out and about various places in the world collecting odd and interesting things. When Ottoline meets Cecily--a far-out storyteller and also the daughter of absent parents--she decides to go to boarding school. A potentially haunted boarding school! The results are hilarious and adorable. So adorable, in fact, that if this book had cheeks, I would pinch 'em. Watch for a full review coming up in a future issue of Estella's Revenge.
It's a short post, I realize, but I wanted to give you all the update. I am ridonkulously happy, and I'm beginning to find a new routine amidst all the changes. Expect regular blogging to resume soon!
