Reading ADD

I cannot seem to finish much lately. I did read Demon's are a Ghoul's Best Friend by Victoria Laurie and really enjoyed it, but I still have Strangers in Death half-read and usually I stay up late reading the new In Death book. And I started Wish Club by Kim Strickland and set it down. And Ghost of a Chance by Kate Marsh and Nylon Angel by Marianne de Pierres. And The Charmed Sphere by Catherine Asaro. And The Mercenary by Cherry Adair. So hmmm....I want to finish these!

And bah, Gambit's dumping things off the desk and getting hair all over my monitor! And yes, the picture is of Tux, not Gambit. But it's still cute!

Oh, I did buy Grimspace by Ann Aguirre yesterday. So far it's quite good. So maybe it is helping my reading problem.

My love for knows no bounds

Ah....Zappos, I love you. When my city was out of winter boots, you came to the rescue. When I ordered after 8 p.m. on Monday, you had my shoes to me by Wednesday morning. And that's the free shipping option. I love you, I really do. And my new Keen Vail boots look fabulous.

I'm here, really!

Ah...the joy of being snowed in. Yes, we're in the process of getting 7 inches of snow today. After we got some ice last night. Oh joy.

Anyways, I updated my books read list on the left there. Anything above the Lori Wilde book is new. As you can see, I went on a Lynsay Sands glom. So good, too.

Unpredictable by Eileen Cook

PhotobucketI was surprised at how much I liked Unpredictable. At first, I found myself annoyed that Sophie would spend so much time and effort in getting back a man who clearly didn't love her, but she's just so funny that I couldn't stay annoyed and just went along with the ride. I'm very glad I did.

This may be mainly Sophie's story, but there is a cute romance, too. I enjoyed the horoscope quotes at the beginning of each chapter and how they related to the events in the book. There's also a great cast of supporting characters, from Sophie's friend Jane to Melanie, Doug's new girlfriend and the reason for Sophie's invention of psychic talent. And we can't forget Nick, who helps Sophie "become" psychic and may just be the one man who really sees who she is.

I just loved how her scheme gets away from her and she's left scrambling to somehow salvage everything and how it all ends up. It's a very good book and I will definitely be getting the next from Eileen Cook.

Bad blogger, bad!

Ack, where has the time gone?

Things have happened, I suppose. Death in the family, lots of vet visits (okay, not a lot, they just added up to lots of moolah), and just plain tiredness. I've composed many a blog post in my head, but haven't posted.

I did read Joanna Bourne's fabulous new book and loved it.

Also read a great YA fantasy by Joanne Harris called Runemark. If you enjoy Norse mythology, it's a must read. I hope there will be more like it.

Also am reading Lynsay Sands Argeneau series. I had read the first two in the series when they first came out. But later, the really first book in the series, A Quick Bite, also came out, so now I'm reading them all in order. She's come out with, I think, three in the series in the last few months. Or is in the middle of coming out with a series of them. I enjoy the series a lot. It's not silly funny like Katie Macalister's vampires, but not dark like some of the other series that have come out. And she had her vampires from Atlantis way before some of the new ones have (I swear I read at least one new series that had Atlantis vamps). Anyways, I'm on the 4th one, Bastien's story, and still enjoying them. I figure that's always a plus, that she's held my attention through at least three books, two of which I'd read before. And I like how you don't really have to read the previous books so far to really get into the story. She has the other characters in the books, but they serve a purpose.

Hmmm...I think that's all for now. They're forecasting about 8 inches of snow for tomorrow night. Ugh.
