It is a truth universally acknowledged that on the day you have to fast for bloodwork at the doctor, you will wake up ready to GNAW YOUR ARM OFF. And when you get there, you will have to wait for some ridiculous amount of time for reasons unknown, even though you were the second person through the door when they opened. So as I was sitting there, I think I opened about 4 different books on my Kindle.
I’m about 30% through Carolyn Haines’ Them Bones (the first in her Sarah Booth Delaney mystery series set in the Mississippi Delta). It’s funny and authentically southern (Haines is a born and raised Mississippian) but just not working for me. So then I tried to start rereading the first Inn Boonsboro book, which I LOVED the first go round. Couldn’t hold me. Then I switched to Meljean Brook’s Mina Wentworth and the Invisible City, which I forgot I had. It snagged me decently enough, but I got called back finally.
Oh, and this would be AFTER I went through 3 different books on my Zune on my walk this morning (because yesterday I finished Rescue My Heart). Mary Kay Andrews’ The Fixer Upper was taking too long to get interesting. And I just wasn’t in the mood to reread la Nora’s Midnight Bayou. And Kresley Cole’s Poison Princess, which started interestingly enough is already losing me.
And I already started and rejected another half dozen contemporary romances recommended based on la Nora’s contemporaries from What Should I Read Next.
I am in a serious reading funk. I don’t know WHAT I want but NOTHING is working for me. And maybe that’s because my brain is pretty caught up in Revision Hell at the moment. And because I’m tired and totally have the attention span of a squirrel on crack. Last night was Boys’ Night, so hubby was out, and I was going to watch Stardust. Ended up going to bed at 7:45. I blamed the Benedryl, but really I think I was just that tired. Thank GOD it’s Friday and tomorrow I can SLEEP IN.
Anybody read something awesome lately?
