Books I've Been Reading & Other Observations

First off, I have to apologize for basically disappearing off this site. It wasn't my intention to let it fall by the wayside, but here's the thing...with the new schedule I'm working + some crazy hot temps lately, my mind is not really thinking "Oh, book reviews!" It's more "Air Conditioning and HOW!"

But, I have been reading. Just read the first three books by Meredith Duran and have to say 2 things. 1. Why in the world did I wait so long to read her and 2. The Book Smugglers were right...again. *headdesk*

The woman writes some amazingly descriptive and beautiful prose. Her stories aren't easy and the love stories themselves are difficult and sometimes downright difficult to deal with, but they are beautiful. So far, book 2 is my favorite. There's something about the way that book is written that just makes my heart melt. *sigh*

I read Jeaniene Frost's book today and loved it! Fast-paced, funny and bizarre...all things I expect from a Frost novel. :) Will have to review it for real someday.

And I have quite a few books left to read. Yesterday was "New Book Tuesday" and I went a little wild. *wince* OH well. :)

And that's about it. It's been consistently at least 100 for over a week now, we don't have air conditioning and I'm melting. I'm going to go get a wet towel, spread it over my bed and hope I sleep tonight. For those of you with air conditioning I've only got one word for you....PBBBBBT! :~P

It's good to see you back!!! It's been hot here too, 2 weeks of 100 temps, we cooled down to 97 today!! I have AC but I'm also going to have a HUGE electric bill and I'm not looking forward to that!

I haven't heard of Meredith Duran before.....I need to check her out!!

A-ha! Told you so. I think Bound by Your Touch is my favorite by hers as well.

I LOVE Meredith Duran and just bought her Written on Your Skin book. I'm sure it will be as wonderful as the last one was.

Stay cool!
