I hope that everyone is having a fabulous and SAFE 4th of July weekend! I haven't really done any parties or cookouts or anything, seeing as if I haven't been at home, doing things, I've been working. Hopefully our neighborhood will have excellent fireworks and I won't regret not going anywhere.
Well, on the reading front, I've offically finished the Harry Potter series. It was phenomenal, I loved it and I'm a tad bit sad that its over. But, all good things must come to an end I guess? Anyway, I've gotten the first movie from Netflix, which I plan on watching tonight.
But, Harry Potter has kind of opened up my love for young adult and children's fiction. I was going to start another series, like The Dark Tower series, but I keep thinking of The Chronicles of Narnia. They were always some of my favorite books as a child. I think I've read the series at least 3 times, but its been years since I've read them, so I think I might delve into those next. They might be a reread, but I could read them a million times and be perfectly okay with that.
One another note, I realized the other day just how much reading calms me down. I was absolutely raging the other day, it was actually sort of scary how angry I was (for reasons that I won't go into). So, I went and got my book, and fell in. By the time that I was finished, I looked up, hadn't realized how long it had been and I was so much more relaxed. It was amazing. I felt so much better and I had finished a book. So I think that's going to be my biggest stress reliever now. Its productive and relaxing.
On the blog front, I'm sad, but I deleted my IntenseDebate comment widget. It kept eating my comments. I would get emails, but they wouldn't show up on the blog. But its sad, because now the comments that I have will be lost. But, I guess that's what I get. I just wish Blogger would change their commenting system. I want to be able to reply to people, strike up conversation and such. You can't do that with the current system. :[
That's all for this week. As always, have a fantastic week, and happy reading! <3
