Bookshelf: Paullina Simons



For the past few weeks I have been reading Paullina Simons's "The Bronze Horseman".


I felt inappropriate reading it on vacation at the beach in Puerto Rico because the main characters were wasting away in the cold Leningrad winter of 1942 without food or warmth and meanwhile I was trying to even out my sunburn while sipping a pina colada.

But THEN I got to the really saucy stuff (which I did not see coming). And while I am so embarrassed at reading this book on the T (because if the people on either side of me read what stuff Alexander and Tatiana are doing in the woods then I'm going to be reeeeeally uncomfortable) I'm simply not willing to stop reading it in public. I just hold the book open, just barely, and keep it close to my face. Which, now that I'm thinking about it, is probably really bad for my eyes.

I need to know what's going to happen! Will they survive the siege of Leningrad? Will they get a happily ever after? Will they do more saucy stuff that gives me lots of "feelings"? So what it really comes down to is that I don't care if the person beside me on the Red Line judges me for reading this because I NEED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENS.

In other news, for those of you not living in Boston, this morning was a temp of 0 degrees. Zero. Nada. A big ole goose egg. So cold there are no degrees, not eve one. Don't even ask about the wind chill. I loose feeling in my toes on my walk to the T (but let's be honest, that's partially because of my choice of footwear).

So with the cold temps and absolutely no plans on Saturday I am telling myself that it's going to be a writing day.

However, I have to be realistic. If I can get at least 2,000 words written then I will allow myself to binge watch a few episodes of Dance Academy. And maybe bake a little something. It's been a few weeks since I made any cookies...

Happy Reading!
