Reading Books II

Two weeks later and I have read five books, and returned them on time! I usually forget and return them late, paying my 25 cent fines happily. Still cheaper than buying books!

Bad:
None

Meh:
Fleur de Leigh's Life of Crime by Diane Leslie. It wasn't bad, but I just didn't like it very much.
Good:

I really like series of books, as you will see.

U is for Undertow by Sue Grafton. I have read all of these as she works her way through the alphabet. It was interesting and she is trying to give the main character's family life more depth as she wraps up the series. 5 more books!

Jass and Chasing the Devil's Tail by David Fulmer. These are set in New Orleans in 1910-ish in Storyville, which was the district of legalized prostitution, following a private detective as he tries to solve crimes. They were both very interesting and the author does a good job of not over-romanticizing the time period or prostitution; the characters seem like real people.

The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson. This is the third in a trilogy, so I wanted to finish it. I would say they are interesting, but not great, as far as crime fiction goes.

That's all I read recently, but I checked out seven more books.



Check out my super-hipster outfit for today. Also a very cheap outfit: glasses, dollar tree; shirt and pants (not leggings, just too tight corduroy skinny jeans)- target; shoes, K-mart, and jacket- Forever 21. I do love this jacket and it fits very well. Isn't my vintage bike awesome? It's super heavy and slow, but I am no speed demon.

We rode to the racetrack and bet on some horses and then rode home. Of course we had to have one a**hole driver incident- some truck passed us easily and then when we were all stopped at the light flipped us off, and peeled out, spraying Andrew with gravel. I just don't get stuff like that. I hope karma gets him and a big rock shatters his windshield or something.
Have a good work-week!

  1. I love seeing casual outfit posts, being dressed casually myself 99% of the time my sources of inspiration are few. But you have pulled of casual very well.

  2. I agree I hate that stuff (the truck driver) !! We actually had a pick up truck driver swerve towards us on purpose once. We looked at each other like "did that really happen?"

  3. You look so relaxed and casual, very cute. Did you win any money on the ponies? Hey, be careful out there with those crazy drivers
