MY BOOKISH (AND NOT SO BOOKISH) THOUGHTS: THRILLERS, KILLERS, & BLOGGIESTA

Here we are again, rambling on about our thoughts, our feelings, and our perspectives.  Join our host at Bookishly Boisterous, to see what others are chatting about.

How did Thursday come so quickly?  Maybe it has something to do with the three awesome books I have read so far…and how I am engrossed in a fourth one that is also a page turner.

Many of you have much more balanced lives, I am sure.  I notice some of you even participate in Fitness Check-Ins, and while that sounds really good to me, it would mean that I have to get off the couch!

Perhaps I should take up audio books, as I could exercise while listening.  But then again, I would probably find some excuse not to do that….face it!  I hate exercise, unless it’s something fun.

I used to love tennis…and basketball…and even jogging.  Wait, no, that last one was painful from the very start!  Not a favorite thing of mine, especially the burning in my lungs as I fell onto the ground afterwards.

But maybe I’ll take a walk later…that doesn’t sound too difficult, does it?

Meanwhile, I am eagerly awaiting another Bloggiesta, March 23-29, and I have been busily creating new headers for the blog I plan to work on—yes, with eleven blogs, I get to do a different one each time!—and I have a folder with quite an assortment of choices.  I have been to PicMonkey, playing and even changing up another blog header or two.

Do any of you participate in Bloggiesta?

Earlier in the week, I read Crazy Love You, by Lisa Unger (click for my review); and I broke my own rules by reading a book I had just downloaded.  Usually I try to read the books in my queue…the ones I have decided have priority.  But I couldn’t wait!

In my review, I wrote, among other things:

 the book “was so addictive that I could not stop reading it. The story unfolds in flashbacks, between the past and the present, and with excerpts from the graphic novel mimicking Ian’s life.”

Today I am reading Fear Nothing, by Lisa Gardner ( I seem to be fond of authors named Lisa:  Gardner, Unger).

This one is a continuation of the D. D. Warren series, and, as usual, there are some freaky characters! They were daughters of a monster—a father who slaughtered eight prostitutes before dying himself. Dr. Adeline Glen left the nightmare behind, and now she specializes in pain management. Her sister, Shana Day, followed in her father’s violent footsteps, first killing at age fourteen and being incarcerated for more than twenty-five years.

That’s my Thursday, so far…I am eager to find out what the rest of you are up to today!

    • Great ideas, Christine…now I need to get an iPod or something with headphones! LOL

      I am not equipped for much of what is happening technically, although I finally have that smartphone and a Kindle. Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I just signed up to participate in #Fitbloggers for the first time. We’ll see how I manage. My lungs can’t really take running, either, but I’m really hoping that once the weather breaks, I can try it again. This snow and more snow is really screwing with my plans! Lol.

    I’m glad you had so many good reads this week! I love when I’m on a role with good books.

  2. Thanks for mentioning PicMonkey. I’ve been wondering how to make cool graphics. Your blogs look amazing. Wow, eleven! I hear you about exercising – it’s not easy. I find just walking for about 1/2 hour to be the best for me. It’s not too difficult and it’s better than nothing.

    • Thanks, Pat, and I hope you enjoy PicMonkey. You are so right about simply walking for a half hour. I was doing it fairly regularly, and then I started finding excuses to stay inside…too cold, etc. They were just excuses! Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I have never been able to sit still for long. I love movement and if I don’t get enough, it starts to show up in crankiness. But for what it is worth I have found that you have to do what you like doing — Trying a form of exercise — such as weight lifting or fitness machines for me — will result in failure. Walking — on the other hand — I like and just have to get started and I don’t notice it.
