I’ve kind of lost my blog writing mojo this last week or so. The last half of last week was filled with taking care of a sick kidlet, and most of the time I’d normally use to work at home on ye old laptop is now given over to her so she can play her games or do some educational stuff. I can’t believe this, but it looks like we’ll be getting her, at five years old, her own computer. The sooner the better!
So I’ve just been reading for the most part when it comes to the blog. Things like this:
So I can’t complain, really, when I’m getting some reading done. I just need to get the writing about it part back in line.
Some brief opinions on these reads:
I’ve finished Bayou Moon. This is the usual Ilona Andrews unique awesomeness. Action, sooper eevil villains, a very nice romance and an excellently vivid world. What’s not to love? Somehow, though, I’ll have to find a way to explain in my review why I didn’t like this one as much as the first book. At the momwnt, I’m stumped as to why. There’s not one thing wrong with this book. I liked it – I just didn’t wholly connect with it for some reason. Don’t you just hate that? The book’s obviously awesome, but for some reason, you and it aren’t gel’n.
I also finished Play of Passion – and it’s almost the exact same feeling I had with Bayou Moon. Except I pretty much know why this one and I didn’t wholly connect. Still, I’m annoyed at myself because, again, this is really a wonderful paranormal romance that I just didn’t connect with completely. In all honesty this is probably my least favorite of the Psy/Changeling series to date, and I can back up why in my upcoming review, but a slightly less great Singh PNR is still light years above and beyond most romances I pick up lately. That’s probably just me, though. Ive been having an off year when it comes to romance, it seems.
Magic at the Gate. Oh, Allie Beckstrom series, I love you. I’m not finished with this one yet, but I’m loving it. Loving, loving and loving.
I got some books in the mail yesterday. My TBR and review piles are turning into Oh My God How Am I Going to Read ALL of You piles. I think I could solve some of that by doing some giveaways. So good news, the Giveapalooza will be making it’s way back to a post near you. Soon.
That’s Lurv for ya lately. Happy reading, everyone.
