I am aware of the fact that I failed to post a single entry during May. In my defense, I was apartment-hunting (again) and generally being stressed with work stuff. And stuff.

But! The good news is that I have started a semi-professional book review blog, Clarissa's Bookshelf. It ties into my day job, so it definitely won't replace LJ, but a lot of my book-blogging energies are going in that direction at the moment. I'll still flail about dramas and life and books here, of course! As if anything could stop me from doing that (aside from LJ's apparent trajectory of rendering itself unusable, that is)!

Love you, miss you. Hope to post more once I've moved into my new place. It's in the Gourmet Ghetto, so... be prepared for a lot of flailing about food. Nom nom!

Thanks! :D I had a lemon marionberry muffin from the Cheese Board the other day, and I'm pretty sure I burst into tears right there in the street, it was so good. And I'm really excited about the farmers' market.

I envy living where there is good food besides what I make myself. Congrats, haha.

Now taking in what books I've read that are on your recommendations list...I need to work on several of them I've known I should read forever. -_-

I'm so ridiculously excited. :)

SO MANY BOOKS. Though I was talking with an author/reviewer the other day about "homework" reading vs reading for yourself, and she said that even if something's the big book of the moment, sometimes you have to wait until it's the right time for you to read it. Which I thought was very astute. Sometimes a few years will go by during which I repeatedly think, "Oh yeah, I should read that," until it's finally the book I want to be reading at that particular time in my life.

Yes, very true! I'm pretty sharply intuitive about what books are going to be like, so I do listen to my druthers.
Even if it gets me in trouble. Because they come on hold from the library for me at the wrong time, and I have them for too long, just waiting for The Mood to strike...
