I hate Mary Higgins Clark.
Last night I started reading her latest book, The Shadow of your Smile. I stopped only beause I was getting tired. This morning I thought I'd read a little while having breakfast. BIG MISTAKE. I spent the rest of the day reading.
I should have known better. I've read her books before and I get so into them that I truly can't put them down.
I started the day with good intentions. I was going to walk, then put the meat I bought yesterday in the freezer, freeze some blueberries and strawberries that I also bought. I had bananas ripening on the counter, just begging to be baked into banana bread. There was laundry and ironing just waiting for me.
Alas, nothing got done. I spent the entire day reading. I finished the book. I wonder how many other do-nothing days Mary Higgins Clark has caused.
Now you can see why I say that I hate her. I mean that in a very loving way. I wonder when her next book will be available.
