Ahahahahaha I was fighting this gym at the train station and I could see someone else was fighting it at the same time and when we beat it some guy sauntered over, leaned in like he was offering me drugs and went, ‘So what team are you on?’
I love how Pokemon has just completely taken over again like it did when I was a kid. But this is a book blog, Emma, not a Pokemon Go blog. Keep your Sandshrews to yourself.
I had a revelation while reading Three Wishes this morning. There’s a bit where Cat asks her sister, Gemma, what she did with her engagement ring when her fiancé died. Gemma says she gave it to a busker with a beautiful voice who was singing one of her favourite songs. Cat is appalled and Gemma explains it’s because ‘I don’t concentrate’. I realised in that moment that she’s been my favourite character the whole time without my even realising.
I just finished Children of the Corn, a short story by Stephen King. Sooooo creepy. I’d definitely recommend.
Obviously it’s only teeny-tiny, but technically it’s a whole e-book so I’m counting it as one of my seven books in seven days! (I’m such a cheat.)
Also, apparently it inspired a cult film, so I could always watch that this week for one of the challenges!
My god, today is going so slowly.
Read more Three Wishes at lunch and am nearly done now – I should finish it on the way home. It’s not as memorable as Moriarty’s other books but it’s still good. Gemma just gets more awesome.
Wow, I didn’t really believe people when they kept saying how hot it was today. I’ve been sitting under the air conditioning so was like, ‘Uh-huh, whatevs.’
I finished Three Wishes just as I was supposed to get off the bus, so was like nooooo slow down bus. It was great! It’s probably one of my least favourites out of Moriarty’s books, but they’re all awesome books. (My favourite is a tie between Big Little Lies and What Alice Forgot, if you’re interested. The Last Anniversary is my least fave.)
I’m going to read The Grown-Up by Gillian Flynn after sunset and am planning to start Forgive Me, Leonard Peacock today (a late addition to my TBR for this week… I told you I’m rubbish at sticking to TBRs).
