I didn’t sleep very well last night, although I managed to stay up all day yesterday (unusual lately). Unfortunately, I ended up sleeping most of the day, today, and I’m still sleepy! So I hope I can sleep well again, tonight.
I have a fever, too, so apparently pushing myself to not nap was a bad idea. Doctor’s orders are still to lay down 15 minutes of every hour, which makes it difficult to get much done at a time. Oh well. It’s better than a fever.
The girl got home safely, but didn’t go out with her friends tonight as planned due to a threatening migraine. They didn’t really see much of the meteor shower, because the skies were too cloudy, but they did have fun.
I finished reading the second of Kat Richardson’s Greywalker books today, Poltergeist. Very good stuff, and a nice change from some of the too-common urban fantasy themes. The library is holding Underground for me, which I hope to pick up tomorrow.
Love Bites gives a synopsis of the
first three all four Twilight books.
Edit: Katie informed me that the above actually mentions events in book four, which caused me to accidentally give her a spoiler. Whoops!
It’s a really, really good thing I stopped reading after book two. I’m absolutely disgusted!
Happily, the book I’m reading to review for TCM is quite good. I’m a wee bit distracted by the author’s Very Silly Name–I don’t know if it’s a pen name or if she had cruel parents. It doesn’t change the fact that the book is enjoyable.
The review is more detailed than what I posted here.
TCM is pretty cool, if you’re willing to read new books by unproven authors and review them. Hope, you’d probably do really well with it–lots of them are eBooks, which I have trouble with reading on a screen. They have separate mailing lists to find reviewers for “adult” and “general” publications, as well as separate lists for the reviews themselves. If you’re willing to review adult material, I’ve gotten the feeling that they have a difficult time finding enough people for that side.
This is the first book I’ve actually reviewed for them. I started to review an adult novel, but couldn’t get past the first few pages for all the mechanical errors. They had no problem with it, no fusses.
I think many of the reviewers are authors, because if you’re a reviewer, you can get your own work reviewed and featured, free.
