I have come baaaaaackk to liiiiiffee.

Some of you may have been wondering why I haven't been commenting this past week... It's because I have been camping! I scheduled four posts, which I was glad to see published! I was a little skeptical.
Anyway, camping was very fun. Sometime in the next week I'll post pictures... We saw wild Orca whales and bald eagles and even a gray fox!
For now, though, I thought I'd just say that I was back and that I finished two books while away!
One was And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie. If you were to read an Agatha Christie... THIS IS THE ONE!!! Oh my goodness gracious she is an absolute genius. She had me so wrapped up that I had no clue about anything.... The cool thing about this one is that there are no detectives or police officers until the epilogue. This is such an amazing book. Wow. It was surprisingly creepy, which I was not expecting. I really felt the character's stress and fear. There was one point where I was reading in the car (out of the wind) and I was at a very tense part and my mom opened the trunk to get something. I jumped and was certain that I was going to be murdered.
The second book I finished was Alice's Adventures in Wonderland which I also LOVED. It was my type of book: very creative and colorful.
Now that I'm back at home, life has started to crash back down on me and I feel stress coming on.... So I'll go to bed soon and get to work tomorrow.
Live long and prosper!
(The title comes from the second Night at the Museum)

  1. I love Alice's Adventures in Wonderland as well! Did you read an illustrated version? (They're always better.)

  2. Woohoo! Camping is fun!
    And all your reading material sounds wonderful! I do love Alice in Wonderland, and of course, Agatha Christie, though I've only had a small sampling of her work.
    Glad you had a good time! I'm looking forward to seeing photos :)
