That title was supposed to be a Harry Potter reference, but I didn’t want to answer my own question in the first sentence.
Thank you very much to everyone who has read this blog in the last few months since my last post. I got a promotion, then life happened. The Actually Currently Reading section of my Currently Reading list is also composed of rather long novels, so it might be a while before I actually get to the last page of anything.
I am still reading War and Peace and giggling because none of the characters are how I would expect after seeing Natasha, Pierre, and the Great Comet of 1812. For one, Anatole is less suave than Natasha thinks he is.
I binged all of the webseries from The Candlewasters sometime during the summer, and I fangirled so much that my current ringtone is now a song from their adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing. I’ll tell you all my thoughts on their storytelling in an upcoming post.
I bought a few French books this week at Half Price Books. One was a book of poetry by Charles Baudelaire, and another was a novel by Gilles Leroy about Zelda Fitzgerald entitled Alabama Song. I know I’m technically already reading four books at the moment, but none of them are in French, so I think I’m clear to add two more.
I started hand sewing a new part of my Regency costume that I once wrote about. Classic literature was my gateway into history and fashion. My other main hobby besides reading is studying the intersection of fashion and society. This might become a section of this blog.
I’m going to try to return to writing, now that I’m not in training at work anymore. The tone might be a bit different from two years ago when I started this thing– but, then again, it was two years ago. What I read for pleasure has changed a little bit.
Thanks for sticking with me. I’ll see you later.
