Updates: It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Narwhal
Kel Wednesday, December 17, 2014If the busy, busy calendar is anything to go by, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, but "narwhal" is an acceptable substitute this week because...
NARWHAL!!! I finally completed my first real crocheting project, and I have to say, this little guy is pretty cute. :) For anyone who's interested, I used this pattern from Ramen Needles (with a few tweaks). Thank you, Kelley!
Making chocolate-covered pretzels is sort of a holiday tradition in my house. As is dutifully eating all the little chocolate-covered pieces that are too small to be proper pretzels. ;) I think cookies are next.
I'm making horribly slow progress due to an increasingly full schedule, but I like the little I've read so far. And it looks like things are about to get, as Darkwing Duck would say, dangerous. :) I also picked up a few graphic novels from the library because that's about the only way I'm completing my Goodreads Challenge at this point.
I finished my eARC of Vision in Silver (thank you, kind peoples at Roc!). I'm still mulling it over, but in short: definitely worth reading, but it puts a lot of focus on expanding the plot and scale...which meant less humor and less of the fun little character interactions I loved in the first two books (or at least it felt like less). So, less wowed than I was with Books 1 and 2, but still happily awaiting the next one. :)
Here's the Book Outlet haul I forgot to include before. And the paperback I picked up at the library sale. I may have also caved and ordered a little something from Better World Books. >.> But that's not in yet, so we'll pretend I haven't been spending more money on books. Denial! :)
That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Death Sworn by Leah Cypess! In which a now powerless magician moves into a mountain of assassins. :)
