It’s a totally lousy Monday morning. No surprise there. I seriously can’t people today. I wanted to stay at home, in my blanket fort and read. Alas, being an adult comes with obligations you can’t avoid. But music always helps. 🙂 No matter how many times I’ve listened to this song, I still love it, especially the lyrics of the chorus.

I’m still stuck with the loathed reading slump. So what do I decide to go and do? Why, re-read the In Death series from Book 6 to 46 (I’d already re-read 1 to 5 several times previously at one point). That’s about 40 books in all, not including the novellas in between. Holy cow. What was I thinking?

I watched Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom today. It was a hell of a ride. The scene with the Brachiosaurus broke my heart. JWFK was highly entertaining but I didn’t expect that emotional slant. Added more depth to the movie.

Seth, all grown-up. I remember when I first read the stories of the Quinn brothers. Seth was still a snot-nosed kid and Nora Roberts hadn’t written his story yet. I remember how much I wished that she’d tell us his story too and she did. Since then, I’ve read Chesapeake Blue twice and this is my third re-read.
It felt so good to read this book again, to see Seth as an adult. The Quinns saved him and changed his life, gave him a future, a family. Seth the nomad, who’d traveled and nurtured his artistic talent, been true to it. Now he’d come home, to face his past and carve a better future for himself.
Drusilla was a big part of making that happen and somehow, despite their different backgrounds, she and Seth fit like two puzzle pieces. She was the yin to his yang, straightening him up when he made a mess of things. I absolutely admired her for her independence, her clarity and her decisive way of handling a situation.
It was hilarious how Cam needled Seth over his relationship with Dru after all the grief the ten-year-old Seth had given each brother when they fell for their respective other halves.
What I loved best about Chesapeake Blue was the family moments, to see Cam with his kids and the kids themselves were a hoot. Those scenes were a delight for me. Overall, I had a blast re-reading this book.
I’m in a weird mood today. I can’t quite put my finger on what’s weird and why. Just woke up feeling weird. I hate moods like these when you can’t figure out what’s wrong. Just this lingering oddness and restlessness. Ah, well, it’s Friday, so maybe I’ll perk up later.
It’s Saturday night and already, I can feel the weekend’s pretty much over. With a snap of my fingers, it’ll be morning and Sunday will be over. Why oh why, can’t I have a day between Saturday and Sunday? Ah well, that’s the flow of time. Can’t help it.
I’m pleased to say this week was better than the last. I’m still in a reading slump but re-reading the In Death series is a true comfort for my soul. On top of that it’s Friday! Yay!
