Home Sweet Home

homesweethomeThe Month of Love

I had specific plans for my blog this February. I was going to embrace the month of love and write reviews for contemporary, romancy sort of novels or discuss the reasons why I tend to avoid books under that category or in general just gush about the things in life that I love (it didn’t even have to be about books!)  And to some extent I followed through because I was bit by the blogging bug in January and scheduled some of the upcoming posts weeks in advance. But then, as usual I became distracted, so I’ll be flying by the seat of my pants for the rest of February. Oops! But, I have a very good reason for this distraction– I moved!

Home Sweet Home

If you follow me on twitter, you may have read that I was counting down days and getting distracted by the movie, My Neighbor Totoro, and the podcast, Serial, while I was supposed to be packing up my belongings. As of January 31, I call a new apartment home, and Jon and Fargo (the cat) and I think it’s a mighty swell place. Almost a week into it, the place is still in disarray because we’re still trying to find places to store our belongings, and we still need a piece or two of furniture, like closet organizers, to do this.

We had Saturday and Sunday to cozy up in our apartment, but that didn’t seem nearly long enough. Luckily, on Monday our city was placed under a State of Emergency because all of the snow that was dumped on us throughout Sunday, so work was closed! We had one extra day to loaf about. Mostly we played Marvel: Ultimate Alliance II and Skyrim.


Keeping with the theme of love, here are a couple of lovely novels that I’ve had my eye on:

Do you have a favorite contemporary/historical/fantasy/sci-fi novel that dwells on the topic of looooove? Tell me about it!
