After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn

Mrs. Queen Takes the Train Mrs. Queen Takes the Train by William Kuhn
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

At turns laugh out loud funny and incredibly moving, William Kuhn's Mrs. Queen Takes the Train follows the Queen, who has not quite been herself and finding herself outside the palace gates accidentally unattended, decides to take advantage of the situation to go buy some cheese. As more members of the palace staff discover her missing, they decide to try to find her before the prss or public discover that she has gone missing.

This is a ridiculously charming and funny book that took me by surprise on a number of occasions at how touching it is, as well. If you are a fan of Alan Bennett's The Uncommon Reader, you will certainly enjoy Mrs. Queen Takes the Train.
