MY GOD. I don't even know how to react. I am just... shocked.
Yesterday, I decided to run to the mall and get my eyebrows threaded (<--- ten times more awesome than getting your eyebrows waxed, by the way). On my way out of the mall, I saw that the mall had a Barnes and Nobles. How could I pass that up?
I had finished my last book (The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory) the night before and was looking for my next book. I have been seeing a few suggestions floating around in the blog world and wanted to just browse around. One book, in particular, caught my eye.
I saw it. Picked it up. Bought it. And went home immediately.
Colon was being a little weird (more on that later), so I decided to start reading.
First reaction: I have no idea what to think of Nick. I don't particularly like him. I hate the way he describes his wife, at times. What is this book about, anyway?
So, I read.
Reaction: Amy isn't that bad. Why would he talk to her like that.
Reaction: Why Nick. Why Andie?
Reaction: Oh, shit. This book is getting confusing. What the hell.
I finished the book just now and I am... shocked. This book has me looking at people funny. This book makes relationships seem... scary. You never know who you are coming across. Damn.
I definitely recommend this book. Read it. BUT be prepared for the F word. It appears often. Also, be prepared to have your mind blown!
... and my 24 Books in 2013 list now has 4 books.
1.Frankenstein - Mary Shelley
2. The Constant Princess- Philippa Gregory (Reread)
3. The Other Boleyn Girl - Philippa Gregory (Reread)
4. Gone Girl - Gillian Flynn
Now onto the "other" thing that mentioned above. Colon and I had a disagreement. Nothing horrible. Just something we did not see eye-to-eye on. When this happens, he needs time to cool down. So he does his own thing.
But, it lead me to think about a few things. Colon and I are out here TOGETHER. We are partners. We moved from Florida, where all of our friends and family are, to Arizona. We are each others family when we are out here.
Whenever we had a disagreement in Florida, Colon would do the same thing. BUT I never felt alone there. I felt so lonely yesterday. I could not call a friend to meet up and have lunch. No reason to leave the house. Where would I go? My loner tendency coming back to bite me in the butt.
It was the first (and hopefully, only) time I felt lonely since we have been in Arizona. Reading helped to pass the time. But... I am a little bit scared of the feeling.
This leads me to ask again :
How do adults meet people and make friends in a new place?
PS... The Other Boleyn Girl by Philippa Gregory is such an amazing book. You should read it, you won't be able to put it down until you finish it. AND once you finish it, you will look for more of Gregory's books to keep the feeling alive! I promise. This was the second time I have read that book and I STILL could not put it down!
PPS... I did not write the "lonely" stuff for you to hate on Colon. We all have different ways to deal with disagreements. He just needs time alone. Period!
