Everywhere I go, this book has been being pushed. It is called The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern.
Here's the blurb that goes with the book: There are no grand announcements when Le Cirque des Rêves comes to town. It arrives without warning, its alluring black and white striped tents open for business only when darkness falls. For it is the circus of dreams, filled with acts of enchantment. But there is nothing fanciful about the game magicians Celia and Marco have been training to play since they were children. Both protégés of cruelly competitive men with extraordinary powers, they were groomed to participate in a fierce competition in which, unbeknownst to them, only one can be left standing. Even as they tumble headfirst into love—a deep magical love that makes lights flicker and the room grow warmer when they so much as touch hands—the deadly match must play out. And what of their calculating masters? The fates of everyone, including daring performers and captivated patrons, hang in the balance, as precariously as the death-defying acrobats soaring overhead.
“Debut author [Erin] Morgenstern doesn’t miss a beat in this smashing tale of greed, fate, and love” (Publishers Weekly, starred review). The Night Circus is nothing less than sensational and will hold readers spellbound to the shocking last “act”….
I'm so getting this book next month from BOMC2, assuming I can wait that long!
The more time I spend as a caregiver for my mom and dad the more I become aware of my failings in the parenting arena. I'm glad I never had the opportunity or the desire to procreate, because I fear I would be a lousy mother.
I have very little patience and I have the attention span of a fruit fly. I'm lousy at keeping house. The only thing that I am halfway decent at is cooking.
That's strange, because I didn't really learn the art of cooking until about a year ago.
Now it is the one thing I get a small amount of enjoyment from, but I don't get to try as many different recipes as I'd like. It comes from having to feed 5 or 6 people that have very different likes and dislikes.
So far I'm really happy with the way my tv shows are shaping up this fall. I adore 2 Broke Girls and am looking forward to Mike and Molly on Monday after 2 And A Half Men. (Not sure how I feel about that show right now).
NCIS was awesome on Tuesday...and my mom says Unforgettable was pretty good too.
I loved the premiere of The Middle and Modern Family. I'm glad to have those shows back...and Big Bang was hysterical tonight.
So much goodness and Psych comes back on Oct 12.
I'm going to be a couch potato this fall.
I'd rather do that than pay attention to the politics of this country...cos oye...I'm all for the Vote Em All Out option.
~ 2.5 Men: Never liked the show much, but had to watch to see how Ashton Kutcher did. I enjoyed the epi more than the old ones, but that isn't saying much. I think this show is on its way out the door. Charlie Sheen may be a crazy warlock, but his method acting made that show. Oh and the guest stars? Boo to the hiss for what Lorre did with Dharma and Greg.
~ 2 Broke Girls: By far the best thing I've seen on telly in months. Really a cute comedy and one I look forward to watching again next week.
~ Castle: Please hook up Beckett and Castle please. I'm sick of the relationship angst. I love Nathan Fillion with all my heart but I can't take much more of the jealousy crap. I will keep watching though...cos...have I mentioned, I love Nathan Fillion.
~ Dancing With The Stars: I've seen clips and can I just say...Yay for Chaz! I was really happy at how well he/she did. Good for ya!
I'm still not up to par...the worry and thinky thoughts are messing with my sleep patterns. I need the stuff that is going on in my life to stop going on. I miss enjoying things and right now..the worry is sapping the enjoyment out of everything.
The only thing I did enjoy was a super silly song I heard on So Random yesterday. It's by Hot Chelle Rae, and it's called Tonight Tonight...and I bring you the silly video...so it can embed itself in your brain as well as mine.
I'm really having a tough time keeping things together right now. I hate that. I've been blogging for years and even in my worst bouts of depression I've managed to blog.
But I'm not sure I can right now.
There's just so much bothering me on many different levels and I wish I could remain calm but I can't. So if I'm not around...feel free to shoot me an email. I will try to answer..and I'll try to keep this blog updated more often.
Just not doing good mentally or physically right now..My posting may be a bit sporatic here...Dad was in the ER the other night..I've got job issues that are causing me stress...I can't think to blog much right now.
I have to say, as much as I adore David Tennant, Matt Smith's Doctor rules all. I have really enjoyed the last season and a half, and this second part of this season has been fantastic.
Yesterday's episode, Night Terrors was probably one of my favorites that get filed under "creepy creepy" Who. My all time favorite was last season's Vincent and the Doctor. No joke, if I see a re-run of that show, I will be in tears at the end. That particular episode, should have won an award. The guy who played Vincent Van Gogh was incredible, and Karen Gillian as Amy Pond...one of my favorite companions of the new series. I may like her more than Donna Noble..and Donna was my favorite companion after Sarah Jane Smith.
Even if you aren't a total Who Nerd or even a fan of the show..(I'm somewhere in between). Last night's episode really begs to be watched. If you love horror flicks...you definitely want to check this one out..Oh and if you watched the final season of Ashes to Ashes...you will see a familiar face in this episode.
I wish I could have gotten into Torchwood this season. I watched the first episode and never bothered to continue. It just left me with a whole lot of "meh" feelings.
