Joining Kat and friends for Unraveled Wednesday.
No photos of the knitting because I spent all day yesterday tearing my hair out with accounting stuff. No time to take photos. Next week… I hope.
I finished the first of the three remaining stripes on the plaid afghan. Even with my ingenious yarn cake management system, it took me at least halfway through the stripe to get the hang of it again. As a reward for sticking to it I promised myself that when the stripe was finished I would switch to the Moderne Log Cabin afghan, which has large blocks of mindless garter stitch.
After working on the ModLogCab for a week, during which it got progressively larger and more unwieldy, I promised myself that when I finished the current block I would go back to the plaid afghan.
The grass is always greener, etc.
A Case of Need by Michael Crichton (originally published as by Jeffrey Hudson). Found this in the Kindle app on my iPad. Medical thriller, okay. 2.5 ★
The Housewife Assassin’s Handbook by Josie Brown. Ditto above.
The Split by Sharon Bolton. Decent thriller set in Scotland and on South Georgia Island. Plot is fairly improbable, though. Multiple personalities? Really? 3★
If It Bleeds by Stephen King. King is such a good storyteller. 4★
A Room Full of Bones by Elly Griffiths. This is #4 in the Ruth Galloway series of semi-cozies. 3★
A Dying Fall by Elly Griffiths. #5 in the series and head and shoulders above the previous ones. The Goodreads ratings reflect that; the previous ones had ratings in the 3.5-3.9 range (out of 4). #5 and subsequent books all have ratings of 4 or higher. 4★
No more photos of book covers next to my review/rating. WordPress has decided everyone must use their new, *improved* interface which does not seem to allow inline pictures like the classic interface did. I tried to go back to the classic, but it seems that the only way to do so is to sign up for the Professional version… which costs $284. Sorry, no way.
And now, time for a chuckle. I am trying to lose the corona 10. How about you?
I hear you on the blogging update – Blogger just switched us all to New Blogger and it’s been a major PITA…
Loved the singer! She made me want to jump up and clap! (That counts as exercise, right?)
I know what you mean about knitting project switching! I did a lot of wishing I was working on something else last month.
You can have Stephen King. I read my first book of his (finally) and didn’t enjoy most of the experience. And it wasn’t because it was horror, because there’s very little of the horror element in 11/22/63. It was just his writing style that didn’t work for me.
No more book covers? Then how are we to judge?
