Reading progress update: I've read 260 out of 1171 pages.
The Count of Monte Cristo - Alexandre Dumas

Hello everyone and how are you all?! I know I know I have been gone for quite sometime and I have no excuses, but laziness and operation get life together. But, enough about me I am here to do an update of this here book I am reading. 

 

This is the very first time reading this book, I have seen a movie (2002 to be exact) and read a retelling of this story called "The Count of Monte Cristo as Retold by Sherlock Holmes" by Holy Ghost Writer I enjoyed both.

 

I am 28 chapters into this book out of 117 (crazy I know!) and I am loving this book. Edmond has suffered for to long, the entire time I was reading this book all I could think of is the musical version of Les Mis! (Yeah, a musical geek!). You know that a story is going to be quite interesting and really good, when right off the bat you meet a character that you are gonna despise and that is the character of Danglars. Oh and two others that of Mercedes cousin Fernand and that darn lawyer person (who ever he is suppose to be I don't care) M. de Villefort. Yeah, they are on my list!!! (Fictional BS Characters)

 

But, this book so far has really taking over my mind when it comes time to read it. I get so caught up into Edmond's world, that it feels like I am living his world. The chapters of this e-book are pretty short and go by really quick, most especially when you get into the book. I don't remember based on the movie and the retelling on how it ended, but I am looking forward to it again when it comes time.

 

I am going to end here or else I will just ramble on and on about this book!

 

I hope you all are having a great day & night and I will be back again at some point lol!

 

LATER DAYS!

Queen Margot, or Marguerite de Valois - Alexandre Dumas

I am not proud, but I am happy; and happiness blinds, I think, more than pride. 

 

Alexandre Dumas

 

Alexandre Dumas (born July 24, 1802) was born Alexandre Davy de la Pailleterie. He took the surname Dumas from his grandmother, an enslaved Haitian woman named Marie-Césette.

Reading progress update: I've read 214 out of 768 pages.
Vicomte de Bragelonne - Alexandre Dumas,David Coward

Well, I'm throwing the towel on this one for now.

 

I started the audiobook for a Jail Visiting landing. I'm double over the amount, and it's been about a month since I dedicated time to it. With all the books I have currently going, I don't expect to finish it any time soon, so I'm dropping it and adding to the library the pages done.

Plan of Attack
If We Were Villains: A Novel - M. L. Rio
The Maid of the North: Feminist Folk Tales from Around the World - Lloyd Bloom,Ethel Johnston Phelps
The Vampire Defanged: How the Embodiment of Evil Became a Romantic Hero - Susannah Clements
Shadow Games - Glen Cook
Shakespeare Saved My Life: Ten Years in Solitary with the Bard - Laura Bates
The Three Musketeers - Alexandre Dumas

So, I am once again overwhelmed with library books and I have to get cracking!

 

I should be finished If We Were Villains in one more evening, if the cat lets me and I can stay awake.  (Mr. Cat leaped on me in bed this morning at 5:45 a.m. to let me know he was ready for me to get up.  And he'd been such a polite bed-partner until then).

 

Maid of the North is an interlibrary loan which can't be renewed, but it reads fast.  I will finish it this weekend for sure.  Same thing with The Vampire Defanged.

 

Shadow Games has been put on hold far too frequently and I really want to finish it up quickly, too.

 

Then the next 2 library books to tackle are Shakespeare Saved My Life and The Three Musketeers.  I've renewed them both on at least a couple of occasions and I'll soon not be able to renew again.  Gotta get cracking!

 

My mission is clear.
