Adorable

I really didn’t expect to be like this – and in fact, probably told myself specifically that I wouldn’t be like this – but, my baby is utterly adorable. Seriously.

I submit as evidence:

And last but not least, the Bwun’s very admirable attempt to crawl today:


The Sea of Trolls

by Nancy Farmertrolls

This was on a list entitled something like “Fantasy books every 6th-grader should read.” It was one of the few I hadn’t read (as a 6th-grader or otherwise), and one of the books on my list that was available at the library. Thanks to the Bwun’s voracious appetite, I was able to start reading Saturday and finish today.

The first 100 pages were miserably predictable and therefore boring. But I kept reading, because if I got through The Eye of the World, I’m convinced that I can finish almost anything. Eventually the story did becoming intriguing, although I disliked the protagonist and his twelve-year-old mind. Annoying.

The ending was sappy and bleh, despite a plot twist I ought to have picked up on and missed. I have no intention of reading the sequel (or the third book, if there is one). But at least I can cross it off my list!

Now 5% complete with my 2009 goal of reading 100 books.
