Have you ever read a book that literally takes over your whole life? You ignore your family, stay up late reading, get up early to read again, and then read at work when you are supposed to be working? Well, that has been my week because of one of the most fabulous series I have ever read – the All Souls Trilogy by Deborah Harkness. The third and final installment of the series, The Book of Life, came out this past Tuesday and I have thought of nothing else since, which is why I am very quickly trying to put together a mystery photo post this morning before work because I forgot all about it (I know Bunny Chow, you’re saying AGAIN?).
Deborah Harkness is an absolute wizard with words. She is a university professor of history and teaches European history and the history of science. So, when she writes about witches and vampires, there are so many history and science facts flowing through your brain that it is quite easy to believe that these creatures could actually exist. Her writing effortlessly transports the reader into the story where you come to love all of the characters like family. I have now finished the final book, and I actually feel sad that it is all over, like there is something now missing from my life :(. If you haven’t read this series, I would highly recommend it!
Anyway, on to the subject at hand – the mystery photo. Thank goodness I use fantastic software called ACDSee to organize and categorize my photos, so that even though I forgot about today’s post, I was able to quickly go to my category entitled “patterns and closeups” to find something that might baffle your brains. It always seems so obvious to me because I have seen the full picture, but let’s see what you think. Is this an easy one or a “Cindy’s being really mean again” one? Give me your best shot. Ok, ready, set, go….
