June 28th Meeting

CHILD 44 by Tom Rob Smith

This book is a page turner... there were some times where I thought something was amiss.. but still it is a great thriller, nonetheless.

It took me on and off about 2weeks to finish it... yes, if you do have the time just for reading you'll probably be able to finish it in 2 days.. or if you're a fast reader.. even less. It's about 400 pages long or more I can't remember the exact number of pages.. but that's not really important.

Our meeting took place at our hangout "Take Urban" same time.. and there weren't many of us since Sandra and Susan were out of town.. WE MISS YOU GUYS!!! Mitzi, you're greatly missed, too.

So, there was Dana, Rebecca, Bernadette, and me.. just us 4 girls.. we had a little chit-chat about the book and after our little discussion we headed to the bookstore to pick out our next book.. and we did have some trouble choosing what to read.. but we did come up with the next 2 books. Our next book, for July 19th, is Blue Bloods by Melissa De La Cruz. And our next one after that is called The Lightning Thief by Rick Riordan and we don't really have a date set for that one yet.. but we'll come up with one..

Hope you all have a great week.. Happy reading everyone!

June 14th Meeting @ Sanbon

Little Women by Louisa May Alcott

And to fit the occasion, we had a picnic style meeting which was perfect~!
We all met up at Sanbon station, got some food from E-mart and headed up to the foot of the mountain... I brought the mat and we settled down in a very quiet place.
It was different from our other meetings because there weren't much people around and less noise (practically no noise). Cool mountain air and terrific scent of nature.. it was very relaxing.
We had a wonderful discussion. Wish you were there~

2009 is, well, it's not one of the best years I've had..
but it is a year that does give me the opportunity to look at things in a different perspective.
I haven't really been myself lately.. though that itself is a very confusing statement.
I feel like I'm in a whirlpool struggling to get out but the current is too strong.
Yes, there is progress.. time to time, I feel myself surfacing but then there is that pull that sucks you right back in and you're back to where you started.. it feels like it's never strong enough.
I'm not really rushing myself.. but I do know I need to straighten things out soon..

Losing someone you love is never easy...
It feels so surreal and that feeling doesn't seem to go away..
I try to busy myself and tell myself that there are things that needs to be done..
but to actually get around to doing it seems hard..
Nothings seems right.. and reality isn't reality any longer..
