It's really not my fault at all

Ay yi yi....this trying to post more thing isn't really working well.

Nick's been not feeling well lately, which sucks. At least he's really good about it, but I still feel bad for him.

I have been reading, but haven't finished something in awhile. Just have a bunch of books going at once. Hmm...what are they? Garden Spells by Sarah Addison Allen (surprisingly good and not something I ordinarily read), Aunt Dimity's Death by Atherton, Demon in the City by Liz Williams (started just today after a B&N trip and impulse-buying), edited by Esther Friesner, and I think something else. I had also been reading Chicks in Chain MailGil's All Fright Diner by A. Lee Martinez, but I finished that today.

Also had my second allergy shot today. Went well, although the nurse almost didn't do it since my peak flow was down from the other time. Well hell, I don't exactly know what my numbers are supposed to be in the first place, so maybe that one time before was some freak thing. Anyways, guess I'll start knowing those numbers since I have the check it each visit.

Oh, and besides the Liz Williams book (it's all Michele's fault), I got The Electric Church by Somers (and that one's all Lili's fault) and then the first C.L. Wilson book (and THAT one is all Jane's fault). So really, I can't be faulted for plunking down close to $40 on an unplanned Barnes and Noble trip on only THREE books. Really, I can't. See, Nick?

Always happy to contribute to book buying delinquency! Loved Zhu in that one; but then I've become a Zhu fangirl. I picked up ELECTRIC CHURCH earlier, and since Fictionwise is having a Halloween sale on its horror and dark fantasy titles, I'll probably be picking up a few more ebooks before the end of the month.

I see you read Trinity Blood. I'd have enjoyed the manga a lot more if it weren't for Esther; love Abel and Tres though (I have the first novel and it's Esther-free, thankfully.)

Are the novels any good? For some reason, I've stayed away from any novels made from manga.

Oooh...didn't know about the Halloween sale.

And that excerpt/doodle you had on your blog was fabulous. Makes me want to read the whole book.

I haven't read the Trinity Blood novel yet, but I do know the novels came first, then the manga, and then the anime. I've heard the novels are more detailed and serious. I'll let you know if it's a good read.

I have all of the Dante Valentine books on my Wishlist over at Fictionwise and they qualify as dark fantasy, so I'll pick those up by the end of the month.

Thanks for the comment on the excerpt thing. :)
