Musing Mondays is a weekly meme that asks you to choose one of the following prompts to answer:

I’m currently reading…
Up next I think I’ll read…
I bought the following book(s) in the past week…
I’m super excited to tell you about (book/author/bookish-news)…
I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…
I can’t wait to get a copy of…
I wish I could read ___, but…
I blogged about ____ this past week…

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: Do you steer away from heavy emotional books?

This came up when I was talking with a friend about what book I could read to keep my mind off the loss of my sweet Dutchy. I don’t usually stay away from the tear jerk-er books, in fact if an author can bring tears to my eyes that is an author I am going to read more of, because happy, sad even mad I like being moved by what I am reading. That being said I was staying away from anything heavier then a Garfield or Calvin & Hobbes as she handed me books. I know she was trying to help but oh so many books were rejected, not her fault of course. In the past I have read deeper novels for sure,Mercy & My Sister’s Keeper by Jodi Picoult come to mind as does Good Grief by Lolly Winston (considering reading it again in the future).

I digress, when I noticed what I was doing it got me to thinking and so I asked a few friends. Surprising to me several of them said they purposely didn’t read heavier books, they just wanted to stay away from them in general. I don’t think I make the choice consciously generally only sub consciously most of the time, but I could be wrong. It is something I feel I should look at more in depth at another time.

So what about you? Bring on the musing!

blockquote>“Then again, she didn’t like small talk either, so she was glad he wasn’t commenting on the weather or the landscape. Life was too big and too short and too important to talk about the lack of rain or the latest gossip. She wanted to know how people felt about themselves and one another, whether they were happy or sad. She wanted to know what made them feel loved and what hurt them to the core. She wanted to know about their past, how they got where they were, and their relationships with their mothers and fathers and siblings. She wanted to know if she was the only mixed-up person in the world who felt completely and utterly alone.”
― Ellen Marie Wiseman, The Life She Was Given

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION: What are your feelings on YA? Do you think it is just for young adults or do you think it’s cool full grown adults like it too.

On time this week but I won’t be answering the question myself. I am sorry for that, I just only have enough energy to come up with the question. Saturday my beloved darling cat Dutchy who I have had for 17 years passed away. Finding it hard to cope without her.

Welcome August! Wow are we really looking down heading into fall soon? 2017 seems to be flying by! I am still working on the re-read of Poldark.

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION:Do you ever wish you could go back and fall in love with reading all over again?

Late again this week… This is not normal for me I promise. Just have some family stuff going on and it comes first. I won’t be answering my own muse this week. Sorry everyone but I hope those of you who are taking part enjoy the muse.

“At that, his smile faded and he kissed her. “Ross,” she said. “Dear Ross.” “I love you,” he said, “and am your servant. Demelza, look at me. If I’ve done wrong in the past, give me leave to make amends.” So he found that what he had half despised was not despicable, that what had been for him the satisfaction of an appetite, a pleasant but commonplace adventure in disappointment, owned wayward and elusive depths he had not known before, and carried the knowledge of beauty in its heart.”― Winston Graham, Ross Poldark

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION:Has a book ever made you crave a specific type of food?

I know I am very late in posting this week. No real excuses to give other then I forgot to schedule a post and the last week yesterday especially have not been fantastic. Sorry about that everyone, I will try not to have that happen again.

Anyways on to the muse.

I know this seems like an odd question but I enjoy comfort food and I find when reading scenes that mention food always catch my attention. There have been several books that end up making me nearly drool with the desire to have some of the food in it. After reading one particularly nice scene that talked about a table full of sweet treats had me running to see if I had any pie to have.

I am back to another series set that I have liked since I was younger and is currently a running TV show. Good ole Ross Poldark has been a friend of mine since oh goodness well since I was very young. He is a very flawed hero but I always found that was one of the reasons I liked him so much, even if I didn’t like his actions he was very human.

“The case is closed, Mr. Poldark. You will kindly step down.” “Otherwise,” said Dr. Halse, “we will have you committed for contempt of court.” Ross bowed slightly. “I can only assure you, sir, that such a committal would be a reading of my inmost thoughts.”
― Winston Graham, Ross Poldark

THIS WEEKS RANDOM QUESTION:Which ending of your favorite series did you truly enjoy but think the author ruined the ending?

OH there are several of these for me. If I had to pick just one, I would say it boils down to the Southern Vampire Mysteries i.e True Blood series. The show at least didn’t make me hate the ending, the book series though well frankly I will never ever forgive the Author for it. Not only was the ending a complete hash, the “follow up” little novella made it worse. Like it was a half assed way to try and not only make more money but try and fix some of what fans were having a fit about.

So how about you?

i am so sorry this is up late this week everyone. I had it scheduled to go live and wordpress decided for some reason not to post it on time. I feel bad! I am glad that I double checked the blog though after packing up a wholesale stitch marker order. Whew! So apologies made here we go and it is Teaser Tuesday.

I actually just finished this book but as I was working through the night have not had a chance to start another yet so one last quote from the second book in the Saxon series.

“But deep under the earth, where the corpse serpent gnaws at the roots of Yggdrasil, the tree of life, there are three spinners. Three women who make our fate. We might believe we make choices, but in truth our lives are in the spinners’ fingers. They make our lives, and destiny is everything. The Danes know that, and even the Christians know it, Wyrd biõ ful araed, we Saxons say, fate is inexorable.”
― Bernard Cornwell, The Pale Horseman
