Sunday Coffee – Busy busy busy

IMG_8338I haven’t had time for much these days. Been under a lot of stress. Just wanted to take a moment to pop my head back in and say hello. Hopefully soon I’ll get back to my feed reader and responding to comments and all that jazz.

In the meantime, I’m gearing up for next weekend’s Readathon! My oldest son’s birthday is that day – he’ll be fourteen! – and he wants to have a readathon party for his birthday. Ha! So he’s going to participate too, on Instagram, and we’ll take a few hours off in the afternoon to have a little party.

I don’t have any particular plans for readathon yet. There are a bunch of RIP books that I have yet to get to, so I might make this a RIP-centric readathon. I have to admit, though, I’m tempted to spend the day going back to reread the Hunger Games series. I haven’t read it since Mockingjay came out in 2010 (even though I adored Mockingjay, unlike most people). My two younger sons are currently reading through the series and we’ve been watching the movies slowly as they finish each book. I kinda want to reread in preparation for the first Mockingjay movie coming out next month. We’ll see. Torn between rereads and new reads!

Anyway, that’s all for this week. Hopefully life will go back to an even keel soon.

    Using the readathon to re-read a series sounds like a great idea. I wish I could participate, but a two-year-old doesn’t exactly get the concept. πŸ™‚


  2. Oh my. I can’t believe it’s only a month away from Mockingjay. Thanks for reminding me.

    I think with the book, it was just that I was on the wrong “team.” However, in the movies, I’m on the right team as that character is a little more likable to me in the movie than he was in the books.

      I didn’t choose a team – actually, I called myself Team Katniss. I liked Peeta as a person, and thought Gale was a controlling monster, and didn’t want Katniss to end up with either (though I did enjoy how it went in the epilogue). πŸ˜€
