Today, I read another chapter of Red, White and Drunk All Over: A Wine Soaked Journey from Grape to Glass by Natalie MacLean and am truly enjoying that book. She has a unique way of describing wines in a vivid, visual manner that hones in on how the wine makes you feel as opposed to the typical taste and aroma terms. I've picked up on a few interesting new facts about wine too and find it much easier to remember these tidbits of information when I recall it in conjunction with her stories.
I'm also reading Girl, Interrupted by Susanna Kaysen and it's ok so far. It was a book I've been meaning to read and it's been sitting on my shelf for ages. The movie is in my DVD collection, so I figured I'd give it a shot and check off another book read for the Read the Book, Watch the Movie Challenge.
Conjure Woman by Charles W. Chestnutt is a book that I'm slowly working through. It's downloaded on my cell phone, so I read it when I have downtime here and there.
I gave up on Malinche by Laura Esquivel for now. Like Water for Chocolate is one of my all time favorite books and I was expecting a love story equally as enchanting with Malinche...but that's not the case. So, eventually I will pick it back up again, but not right now.
So, that's all for me. I will spend my last hour before bed reading Red, White and Drunk All Over.
Nighty Night and good reading!
