Books: The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides
Happy read-a-thon kick-off everybody!
I haven’t had the best start to the read-a-thon myself, which is mainly due to this bundle of joy:
This is Lewis’ new puppy, Harley. She’s not mine, but I’ve been at his house since she came home on Friday – playing, cleaning, feeding, trying to keep my ankles away from her sharp little teeth… She’s a lovely little thing, although her back legs are too big for her so she keeps falling over when she tries to move too fast.
I have got a little bit of reading done while Lewis was at University earlier. Harley was asleep on my feet, so I was able to read without feeling a little ‘nip’ for attention, bless her. 39 pages is hardly amazing, but then nor is The Virgin Suicides, so we’ll call it even.
Crossing my fingers for a slightly better page count for the rest of the read-a-thon!

A poor day for similar reasons to yesterday – puppy! I did come home today though (about an hour ago, in fact), so I managed to finish The Virgin Suicides on the train. I was so bored with it by the end that I probably would have put it down if I didn’t need something to keep me awake. Ah well, it’s done now!
I can’t wait to start my next book, although I haven’t decided what it will be yet. I do need to write a review before I can go to bed although it might end up being a Top Ten Tuesday post instead.
I just stumbled across a review of The Virgin Suicides film. It’s a movie? Really!? Well that must be depressing. Also boring. But mainly depressing. It has Kirsten Dunst and James Woods, but what a weird book to make a film out of.
