I'm alive!

I have been rather quiet. The network card in my pc is fried, so I am computerless for the moment. I am borrowing computer use at the moment.

Things are interesting right now. I have a lot of reviews to catch up on. I don't really have the time right now to spend writing the reviews up, but I am trying. I put the Patricia Briggs one up today. That's an accomplishment.

A few things are going on lately. David Gemmell, a god, died back in July. That's sad in itself, but the thing that is must upsetting me is that he died with an unfinished trilogy on Troy. I am reading book one right now, Lord of the Silver Bow, and book 2 comes out in the fall. Book 3 was supposed to come out next year, but who knows if it will. I am sort of reading book 1 slowly, because I don't want to get to the next one, have it end suddenly, and then not have a conclusion. So, I am waiting for some sort of announcement. I will read them anyways, but I want to be prepared. I can't see the trilogy not being finished, and I really really am liking book one. So, hope all will be well on that front. I am still very sad that he died, my plan is to go on a Gemmell read and try and read all his books between now and next fall. Wish me luck!

Anyways, I plan to make a list of the 25 best books I have ever read. The meme has been going around. I wasn't very interested at first because most people were doing romance books, which I don't read, but then I thought I would just do non-romance. People are doing that also. I think it is going to take some major thinking, at least five of them will come from this year alone thanks to all the wonderful blogs I have been reading, I have read a lot of GREAT books.

Other than that, just wanted to give a shout out to Heather from A High and Hidden Place who is expecting, hope everything goes well on that front! Dance Chica has voting and suggesting going on for her classic book club. I never did get around to The Scarlet Pimpernal.

I will try and have some more exciting book reviews up soon!


  1. Looking forward to a meme. Though a deceptively simple idea I suspect I will have difficulty picking my top 25.

  2. I was at the library tonight...and they have loads of David Gemmell books!

  3. Thank you sweetie! ;) I'm so excited!

    And you definitely should read The Scarlet Pimpernel. I really enjoyed it.

    Can't wait to see your 25 favorite books. I think I would have a hard time with that!

  4. carl v. - I know, it is a simple idea, but it sounds hard.

    Marg - Yes, there are lots of them, but I like a challenge. He has one with an Arthurian connection, that excites me. :)

    Heather - I am glad that you guys are looking forward to everything! I will have to read Scarlet Pimpernel soon. the bookstore didn't have it and I find it distracting to read on the computer.

  5. Yikes! I hope you get your computer back soon.

    And I second Carl's comment!

  6. Oh, I hated it when my computer was out last spring! Hope it's restored to health soon, and looking forward to the memee!

  7. Can't wait to read your reviews! Have you gotten to New Moon yet? I LOVED it!

  8. Mailyn - I posted my review to New Moon already. :p

  9. Nevermind, no I haven't. I read that wrong. Oops! Glad you enjoyed it!
