I am so in love with our apartment. My favorite part: a reading nook off the living room where we're putting two chairs. I will spend so much time in the overstuffed one reading with my feet propped up on the ottoman. Soon, I will return to my reading of the Orange Prize longlist and be writing reviews with all of thoughts. I'll post pictures of it soon enough (once I find the box with the camera in it, perhaps.) Packing and moving has severely cut into my reading time, reviewing time and time to visit other blogs, but I'm hoping things get back to normal this week.
I've been reading The Seas by Samantha Hunt, which is on the Orange longlist. I like it. When I'm reading it, I'm engaged (although more with her writing and than the characters at this point). When I'm not reading it, I don't find the urge to pick it up instead of packing (and now unpacking), so I'm not making as much progress as I would like. I'll reserve my final judgment until I finish it, but I hope to have a review of it up later this week.
In the meantime, I'll do my best to get back into a reading and blogging groove. Happy
