Boy Bait

The Blueberry Boy Bait is somewhat less enticing than I had hoped. Plus, huge: an entire 13x9" worth. I guess it's good for what it is, but I'd anticipated a denser, more coffee-cake-like texture and this is decidedly fluffy.(I used Cook's Country, which is a division of Cook's Illustrated so obviously the recipe is perfect.) Slim was up all night and was only baited into consuming a small square. (He was trading gold, obvs.)

Still between books - finished A Special Kind of Love - and the panic is setting in. Never Let Me Go has been intimated but I don't know that I can wait for Amazon/my landlord to get it to me - I have mentioned his practice of dumping five Time Outs on my doorstep at a time, right? Usually on a Sunday.

I red Never Let Me Go when it first came out and though I enjoyed it I must tell you it is a time-release book; it has haunted me and grown in my mind. I've been planing to re-read it but almost don't have to. It's become a ghostly place in my mind.

Hmm...I think this may be what I need right now! I just read The Secret History as a 'fun' read and I want something that lingers a bit more...'a ghostly place in my mind' what a lovely phrase!

I just read something that definitely veered toward guilty pleasure but reminded me so much of the Secret History. One of my favorite things in life or to read and to read about are big, rambling old houses with a history and a group of eccentric people living there, up to something. The Likeness by Tana French was all that, plus murder, which I also enjoy. Reading about.

I have a copy of Never Let Me Go if you're inclined to borrow it. And yes, it's wonderful.
