My delay...

Ok, you've probably noticed I've been MIA for a week or 2 now.

It's not because I want to, I promise. My job has me swimming drowning in paperwork. I can barely see the light of day. In fact, I heard the chirping of a bird the other day and had to pause a moment because I didn't realize it was a bird! So, yeah. Super busy.

I have been reading, though. I've been reading a lot actually. It's the only thing that helps me rest at 2 a.m. when I finally wind down from all the day-time work. Of course, it's never wise to start/read a book at 2 a.m. because I just can't stop at a few pages (or chapters)!

So, until things settle down a bit, I will be taking a break. =( I'm sad about it, but I have to pay the bills. Being an adult does have its drawbacks at times. Wish I could read all day and discuss books and still eat and have a house, but alas, that doesn't happen in my world.

When I return, I promise I'll have lots of book reviews. (I've read about 5 books so far I need to write up!) Hopefully things will settle down after the big "conference" later in September.

Wish me luck!

  2. Being a grown up sucks. I'm in a similar-ish position and I'm going crazy! So much reading, not enough writing time. Good luck with everything!

Review: The Search for Delicious

The Search for Delicious Natalie Babbitt
Product Details

Reading level: Young Adult
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Square Fish (August 21, 2007)
ISBN-10: 9780312369828
Source: My personal book


Summary from Amazon: Gaylen, the King’s messenger, a skinny boy of twelve, is off to poll the kingdom, traveling from town to farmstead to town on his horse, Marrow. At first it is merely a question of disagreement at the royal castle over which food should stand for Delicious in the new dictionary. But soon it seems that the search for Delicious had better succeed if civil war is to be avoided.


Gaylen’s quest leads him to the woldweller, a wise, 900-year-old creature who lives alone at the precise center of the forest; to Canto, the minstrel who sings him an old song about a mermaid child and who gives him a peculiar good-luck charm; to the underground domain of the dwarfs; and finally to Ardis who might save the kingdom from havoc.

My Review: I love this book! It is such a fun, easy, and enjoyable r…

The Winner's Crime ( Marie Rutkoski)

Book two of the dazzling Winner's Trilogy is a fight to the death as Kestrel risks betrayal of country for love.

The engagement of Lady Kestrel to Valoria’s crown prince means one celebration after another. But to Kestrel it means living in a cage of her own making. As the wedding approaches, she aches to tell Arin the truth about her engagement... if she could only trust him. Yet can she even trust herself? For—unknown to Arin—Kestrel is becoming a skilled practitioner of deceit: an anonymous spy passing information to Herran, and close to uncovering a shocking secret.

As Arin enlists dangerous allies in the struggle to keep his country’s freedom, he can’t fight the suspicion that Kestrel knows more than she shows. In the end, it might not be a dagger in the dark that cuts him open, but the truth. And when that happens, Kestrel and Arin learn just how much their crimes will cost them.

This week's question: Do you have any furry friends?


These are my fur babies: 

This is what it often looks like while I'm busy working. As you can tell, productivity is high. 


This is Lilly waiting for her boys to come home. She'll spend the entire day just like this if she's not sleeping next to me in my office. 

This is Roscoe. AKA The Boss. He runs the show around here. And yes, he has a sweater AND a coat for cold weather.
