I had a great three day weekend and did no work! Today–all work and no more play!
We went to see The Time Traveler’s Wife. I found it depressing. Maybe the book was better.
I promised I let you all know what I thought of RED HEADED STEP CHILD by Jaye Wells. I wasn’t sure at first; the heroine is an assassin, and she kills a friend in the opening scene. That was hard for me to get past, HOWEVER as I kept reading, I really did get caught up in the story. While I started out with very little empathy for the heroine, I did eventually emotionally connect with her.
My two favorite things in the book: the demon who is addicted to infomercials and the hot, sexy mage that shows up.
The writing is good. Toward the very end of the book are these two lines: “His face was grim, but his eyes told the real tale. Through them, I could see his soul had aged.” These lines were so perfect for the situation.
So my verdict is that I’d read her again.
How was your weekend? Did you guys do anything fun?
