One of the things I enjoy most about reading is finishing a book that I didn’t particularly enjoy–especially if I’ve been reading it for a month. Such was the case this morning when I completed Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. While I did not enjoy the book, I also didn’t dislike it–overall, I suppose it’s a pretty neutral feeling towards the book. I read it for the Readers Imbibing in Peril (RIP) VI Challenge in which I’m participating. But I didn’t find the book to be particularly creepy or anything–I found the movie to be much more so. I digress–there will be more in the actual review post. Besides Rebecca, I finished listening to Honolulu by Alan Brennert this week, as well. I enjoyed it immensly!
I suppose I might admit that one reason I took so long to finish Rebecca was that my husband and I began watching past seasons of How I Met Your Mother on DVD in the last couple weeks. I hadn’t realized that Nick liked the show so much–he’s been wanting to watch like 2-3 hours at a time!!
I’m currently reading Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children by Ransom Riggs (for the RIP VI Challenge) and HP and the Order of the Phoenix by JK Rowling (for the Harry Potter Reading Marathon). Here’s hoping that Miss Peregrine’s will be more of a creepy fit, in my mind, than was Rebecca.
