It's Wednesday!

Wow! This week has gone so quickly. This is just a random up to date post as I watch my neighbors' dogs run off yet again (the cute little one attacked the mailman today -- the anklebiting dog, that is).

I have been reading. I swear. I've struggled, though, because one of my most recent reads was highly, highly disturbing. And it takes a lot for me to say that.

My weekend reading in the hammock left me with the heebie jeebies. It wasn't a poorly written book by any means. In fact, it's probably a testament to how well the author can write that she freaked me completely out.

My next read, was Saturday's pre-pub post, Michael Marshall's Killer Move. And I loved it. I know, I probably should have gone with something light and breezy to clean off the cringing feeling the other book left me with. But I went with the page-turning thriller instead.

Page-turning is one of the best (even if it's overused) ways to describe what Michael Marshall does. Like his last release, Bad Things, about half of the book is somewhat misleading in terms of the game changing twist that he throws at you.

I've got an ambitious weekend of reading plans ahead. We'll see if I'm able to accomplish it all. I'm starting S.J. Bolton's Now You See Me (about to hit the hammock again now that the work day is over).

Also, if you're interested in podcasts at all, I encourage you to check out the Orbit podcasts. The latest features Mira Grant (aka Seanan McGuire). I find these highly entertaining and Grant talking about zombies and the flu is awesome!

Ok, I'm off to hit the books. The only thing I need to make this perfect is a pool and a cool lounge chair!
