Mixed Feelings

Last week at work has just been really busy. I may have mentioned before that I started doing this new assignment that got me going to different places. But at the same time, it's not that I've been so busy to the point of exhaustion that I'm not able to collect my thoughts to write something here. So what was it then? Hmmm, not sure really...

And here we are, now September, Labour Day's come and gone... hmmm...

Anyhoot, a friend who used to live here was back in town for a visit so we met up last Saturday for stroll around downtown and some munchies after.

Rogue Kitchen & Wetbar

Deciding what kind of drink to have, something caught my friend's attention and when we asked about its size, I swear, we didn't think it was that much. HAH!

"Fishbowl" size
Sushi Bombs 2.0
Fries x 3 (with gorgonzola cream and bacon, with truffle oil and parmesan,
and poutine)

Good times, indeed!

Other than meeting my friend, didn't really have anything concrete planned for the weekend. I just really wanted to relax, and perhaps read a book or 2.

via Chapters

As far as liking this book, I usually gauge how good a book is by how much I'm not able to put it down or how quickly I can read it. I finished it in 2 days or so. I've finished some books in a night, or definitely less than a day. I know, 2 days is not bad. But one reason I think is I just want to finish it. Is that good? To a degree, I still say yes.

Firstly, I'm not a circus fan so for me to read it, in the first place, and finish at that, I think says something already. But it was kinda' slow-moving for me as vivid as some parts of the book are. Also, I wish the writer focused on fewer characters which would have probably allowed for more development of the 2 main characters. It almost felt like an ensemble. It felt like it didn't fully demonstrate the love that supposedly developed between the 2 main characters.

Anyhoot, just my take, that's all... Will I read it again? Doubt it. Can I part with it to share with friends? Yes. Did I enjoy it? I say it's alright...

Yup, everybody's a critic...


  1. I bet that fishbowl drink wasn't enough! Bwahaha! And TY for that book review! For, can I borrow it?

    1. Took a while to finish that drink is an understatement HAHA... and yes, for sure:p

  2. I read the Night Circus too. I don't mind it, I think it was quite magical

    1. It was, wasn't it? I did enjoy those parts describing the circus itself and feeling like you're right there...
