I’ve been reading more! I just finished Patricia Briggs first book in her Feral series, DESIRE UNTAMED. I enjoyed it. It’s not a 5 star read for me, but I know people love, love, love the books and I see why!

Right now, I’m reading Silver James (**waves madly at Silver!**) PROMISES PROMISES.  I just shy of half way through and totally loving it! I’m even a little surprised because novella length books are a hard sell for me. I just don’t always love them, but his book is hitting all the right buttons to draw me in and have me rooting, and rooting hard, for the heroine Kelly.  I’ll let you all know what I think when I’m finished!

So far, I haven’t been called in for jury duty. I’ve had all week fairly free, but Friday I have a hair appt I don’t want to miss. I’m going to be peeved if I get called in on Friday! Just warning you all so you can take cover :-)

Okay, what are you all reading?

    Awww! Thanks, Jen. I’m so glad you like Kelly. This was such a fun novella to write. I love Little Mike and Kelly, hate her parents, and adore Big Mike and Maggie. I may just have to write their story one of these days, even if it’s just a free read on my site.

    Fingers crossed for no jury duty. I know how it goes when you reallyreallyreally need and want a hair appointment and something gets in the way! :D

    Dang. I forgot to mention what I’m reading. I got all caught up in the fact you were reading PROMISES, lol

    I’m reading an oldie (but new to me)–WAR FOR THE OAKS by Emma Bull. It’s touted as being the “original” urban fantasy, first published back in 1984. Wow. Ms. Bull can write! Her turn of descriptive phrase has me green with envy! Next up on my list are Rocki’s FACE OF DANGER and Kate Carlisle’s MURDER UNDER COVER.

    I hope you don’t get called in tomorrow. Hair appointments are very important the judicial system should know this! I got mine done yesterday so it would look good for boys graduation Saturday. I am so excited for the kid.
    Mentioned it the other day – yes it’s taking me a long time to read because I just don’t get to sit down with it but it’s EONA Allison Goodman. It’s the sequel to EON and is so good. Yes, they’re YA but worth the read.

    Silver, I finished the book last night–so I basically read straight through, taking a break to cook dinner and write the blog :-)

    Free reads are great promo tools…just saying! (Although I haven’t done it yet.)

    What would you change your avatar too?

    Viki, that’s right! Congrats on your son’s graduation! And I’m glad you’ll have nice hair for it! LOL! I really don’t want to get called in tomorrow, but we’ll see.

    I’m worried about getting sucked into yet another YA series!

    I have no clue what I’d change it, too. I guess the avatar I use on Twitter, which is the “real” me. I’m slow to change things. LOL And all this talk of hair appointments has me wanting to get mine done! I’ve let mine go since The Only’s wedding and now I’m at that decision stage–do I let it go and be “ugly” until time for RWA the last of June when I can get it cut just right? Or do I get it cut extra short now and hope it will grow to the right length by then? *sigh* I hate hair decisions. :P

    I have PROMISES, PROMISES waiting for me on my Nook. I had to get it when you mentioned it on an earlier blog.

    Right now, I’m reading Rick Riordan THE THRONE OF FIRE, book two of the Kane Chronicles. It’s a YA and centers around magic and Egyptian mythology. Before that, I read Shelly Laurenston’s BIG BAD BEAST. I have several books waiting for me on my Nook. I’m not sure which one I want to read next. Decisions, decisions…

    Silver, I like your avatar on Twitter!

    Hair decisions are hard for me. Which is why my hairdresser–whom I’ve know for 20 years–makes them for me :-) Good luck with your hair decision!

    Dawn, ohhh Egyptian mythology sounds sooo interesting! Even though I just said I’m not going to get sucked into another YA series….

    I’m so behind on Shelly L I don’t know where to start!

    Ack, where was I this morning? I’ve got my fingers crossed that they don’t call you to jury duty tomorrow. Hair appointments are very important things.

    I just finished reading This Side of the Grave by Jeaniene Frost and started Must Love Hellhounds this morning. The first two stories in that didn’t blow my skirt up, but I’m really enjoying the third one. And I have an order on its way with Roxanne’s Shiver of Fear and Karin’s Blood Law in it. Should be some fun reading this month. =o)
