More Spiders

I'm getting everything ready for the big visit home for my reunion. Too bad I didn't stick to my diet! Yeah, yeah. I'll jump back on board when I get back, after eating all the fried greasy food my heart desires!

Today's a day. I gotta tell you. I'm totally beat, totally unmotivated, and totally lacking anything in the way of energy. What is wrong with me? I'm bummed about work, I'm bummed bout things around me. The only highlight is that I get to go home, but I may very well be unemployed when I return.

When did everyone decide that the economy crap was the excuse they needed to start screwing over workers? Why do I have to have the realization that if everyone out there had a job they loved, could afford to wait for that job to come around in fact, that there wouldn't be these issues. But everyone (almost everyone) has this issue. Some of us just fight the inevitable longer. And it's bringing me down!


Anywho, I guess it could be worse. We could be overrun by giant killer spiders. But, if I happened to survive, my work situation wouldn't be a problem anymore, would it? Kidding.

Anyway, you don't want to hear about my pity party. You want books! And hey, great reads are the best medicine in my opinion. That and Cajun food and seeing my seesters!

A couple of weeks ago, I posted an entry here about Sarah Pinborough's Breeding Ground, a creature feature that was a super fun and chilling read. Well, the companion, Feeding Ground (I'd thought it was a sequel, but it's a parallel story, so I am corrected now), is out and hit the horror spot once again for me.

This time, there are two groups of kids fighting to survive the infestation while a drug lord believes he's found a way to train the creatures. I'll forgo any more of a synopsis and instead lead you to the look inside feature offered by Dorchester so you can check it out yourself -- and I highly recommend you do 'cause everyone could use some cool creepy reads this fall!

Oh what a bummer! My hubby experienced this first-hand. Luckily, he was rehired six months later, but the fear of the unknown was overwhelming!

I can't wait to have some time off to devote to some great horror reads! I received Feeding Grounds earlier this week and can't wait to get to it!
