I read Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X, #1) by Richelle Mead yesterday. I’ve had this in my to-read pile for quite some time now and I’m happy I got a chance to read it finally! Now I just have to add the next book to my to-read pile and hope I liked it as much as I liked this one.

For today’s participation post, I’m supposed to talk about how I’m doing. It’s the first Thursday of the month today so there was a market in the community hall. We went there and had a turkey dinner lunch buffet for $12. It was definitely worth it and I like helping raise funds for the community projects we have going on. We ended up spending $30 buying a bunch of stuff we probably don’t need but it was for a cause. We try to help local businesses, especially farms, so we bought 2 dozens of farm eggs.

We also tried to get my winter truck tires studded from KalTire just to be on the safe side but since it was used already last winter, they couldn’t put the studs in all the way so that was a fail. It was really good of them to even try, though. Some would just tell you they won’t do it since they’re not brand new tires.

I had a good couple hours nap in the afternoon and we ended up watching Iron Lady on TV. I loved Meryl Streep and her portrayal. I even caught Scotty wiping tears away a couple of times throughout the movie.

ddd-spine-poetryI’m not really into poetry and most of the times I never seem to get what most poems – or even abstract art, if I may add – are really about, but I love taking up challenges so I’ll try my best. It probably won’t be any good or won’t even make much sense but I’ll try my best to work with what I’ve got and give you my first ever attempt at poetry. You be the judge, here goes nothing…

She loves you, she loves you not…
After obsession, possession,
darkness becomes her:
A wild surge of guilty passion,
serpent’s kiss…wildfire.
Immortal beloved.
The alchemy of forever.

    I have been meaning to read Gameboard of the Gods for so long. I’m glad to learn that you liked it 😀
    And I love your spine poem – it’s so lovely!

      Thanks! It took me half an hour trying to pick out the books to use. Poetry isn’t easy, ha ha! And yeah, it took me a while to actually read the book, too. It was really good, though.

      Yeah, it probably would have taken me that long, but I just sued the books in my lounge room, haha.
      I have had it sitting around for a while, but never had the motivation to pick it up! Hopefully I will now.

    And I think you did really well on your poem. 😀

      Thanks! 🙂 I enjoyed picking out the books to use. It was almost like a puzzle trying to make the titles work together.
