I thought about getting a little extra workout in after the girls went to bed last night but I ended up doing this instead:
Hot chocolate and a good book make for a pretty good night, as long as you can keep your eyes open.
And since we're on the subject of books, I have to say the last two books I read left me not completely satisfied.
The first one was Allegiant, the third book in the Divergent Series. I was not happy with how it ended. I can see why the author went that direction to close out the series and I don't insist on always having the perfect, happy ending, but I was actually annoyed enough by the ending that it made me mad I invested so much time in those books.
The other book that left me shaking my head at the ending was Gone Girl .I'm curious to see if the movie has the same ending, because I actually think it would be ok as the ending of a movie, but as a book in which the characters are so developed, it was hard to swallow. I felt like there was no real resolution.
I'm only 55 pages into The Goldfinch, but so far I am enjoying it. I really like the author's writing style and how she paints detailed pictures with her words. I'll let you know what I think of the whole thing once I have turned the last page.
Have you read any good books lately?
