Back in the Sunday Salon

Hello Saloners, after a long absence due to my wedding and honeymoon, I’m finally back!  There are some pictures of me reading on my wedding day, unfortunately I don’t have them on my computer at the moment.  The ones of me reading actually IN my wedding dress are in the posession of the actual photographer, so that may be a few more weeks, but I have one of me reading between doing my hair and makeup that I just need to transfer off the camera

I just finished reading Lauren Willig’s ‘Pink Carnation’ series.  I started on the honeymoon by reading “The Scarlet Pimpernel” and then began working my way through her books, which are about the other ‘flower spies’ that are supposed to have continued where the Pimpernel left off, particularly the Pink Carnation.  I’ll have a review up sometime soon, but I really enjoy her books.  They are a little fluffy, but they are extremely fun and engaging. 

Today I’m not likely to get a ton of reading done (I’m now on “Aberrations”) because we are going to go work on completing our registry at Crate and Barrel and probably will go and see The Dark Knight.  However, I informed my husband that I am only going to see The Dark Knight if he first takes me to the library book sale going on in the area this weekend.  Not that I have time to read new library sale books, with all of the review copies I’ve got right now, but why should that stop me?

  • Those must be classic photos of you reading in your wedding dress – can’t wait to see them. I think that should be on LT’s home page!

    Good to see you back, although you managed to post-date enough posts that I hardly missed you!

    Any good wedding stories to share (besides the reading)? There are always bloopers.

  • I can’t wait to see the pictures!

    Aberrations is really good. It took me a little while to get into it, but once I did I loved every minute of it.

    Have fun at the library sale and movie. I’d like to see it myself. As far as the sale, I’ve forbidden myself from buying any new books for a while, but you’re more giving to charity at a library sale than you are buying books, don’t you think? :) If you find any Norah Lofts or Jean Plaidy books there that you don’t want, I’ll reimburse and pay for shipping. :)

  • I can’t wait to see those wedding pictures too. =)

    The Newberry Branch book fair is this weekend, is that the book sale you are going to? You’ll have plenty to browse through, on the website it says more than 100,000 books sorted into 66 categories! Have fun!!

  • Fluffy is the perfect word for Willig’s series. I remember reading them last year and having fun with them, but at intervals I would sometimes stop and think and wonder “Why am I reading these again? They’re so-” and then I’d bap myself on the head and dive back into the story.

  • Congratulations and welcome back. My son and I went to see Dark Knight and really enjoyed it. Have fun at the book sale, and I agree with Literate Housewife – it is not consumerism to make purchases at a library sale, it is charity.

  • Welcome back! I can’t wait to see the wedding pictures!

    I recently read The Scarlet Pimpernel. That series sounds like an interesting one…Congratulations on your wedding too.

  • *pictures!

    And congratulations!

  • Congratulations on your marriage! I look forward to seeing the photos of you reading on your wedding day. :-)

    I am reading Aberrations at the moment too. I look forward to reading your thoughts on it when you are done.

    Have a great week!

  • Congratulations on your marriage! I thought the Pink Carnation series was a light, fun, fluffy read too :)

  • Welcome back! yes, post reading-in-wedding-dress pics when you can.

  • Congratulations on your wedding! 😀

    Also, I just heard about these books by Lauren Willig this past week, thanks to TSS, and I put them on my TBR list.

  • I heard “The Dark knight” was amazing. Hope you enjoyed it— if your husband took you to the book sale!
