I feel like I've been away from this space for quite some time, even though it's only been about a week. We had such a wonderful, relaxing Thanksgiving weekend and I promise to write more about that in the next few days. But first, a yarn along post, with Ginny.
I am in the final stretch of my secret project - hopefully I will be able to reveal all next week. With that other yarn in the basket, I will make a secret hat to accompany the secret project on its way to its secret recipient. I didn't want the secret project to get secretly lonely in a box all by itself - and I wanted to make sure a certain secret noggin would be nice and toasty this winter too.
I'm also still reading Divergent with my book club group. I would recommend it to you as someone who was a big fan of the Hunger Games, with the caveat that it's not quite as good, but still worth a read. I think the main difference for me is that the action in Divergence started happening almost right away, without giving me a good chance to know the characters or get really invested in their stories.
And that's okay - as we go through the book, the characters are obviously getting more and more developed, and I really like the story.
Of course, a big discussion in my book club is what faction each of us would be in if we had to choose. For me, it's kind of a no-brainer - I would have to go with Amity - although I wonder what the initiation for that faction would look like? It's probably full of laughter and compliments.
That's how I roll.
P.S. What's your favorite holiday book? I love A Christmas Carol and read it every year, but am looking for another one to read in the upcoming month.
