I'm busy with edits at the moment, but while I'm working how about telling me what book you're reading at the moment and what book you want to buy next.

I could always do with some more books on my to-buy list!

Also - what's for dinner tonight? I can't think what to have...

Let's see, we're having what ever is in the fridge (for me that means Greek potato salad...Yum). LOL! I fixed my son Mac n Cheese, so he's very happy.

My reading material starting tonight is Witch Blood by Anya Bast. I just finished MaryJanice Davidson's new anthology called Dead Over Heels. It was great. There are three stories in the book are Undead and Wed (a Betsy short), Survivors (based in Fred the mermaid world) and Speed Dating, Werewolf Style Or, Ow, I Think You Broke the Bone (a Wyndham Werewolf story). They were all great novellas! There's a sneak peek at the new Betsy book Undead and Unworthy (the first 2 chapters) and it promises to be a great read! I'm so excited about it now.

I have no idea what's for dinner tonight. I'll have to decide what I'm making. LOL

As for reading I'm rereading A Kiss of Shadows by Laurell K Hamilton because I'm waiting on books I ordered online to arrive.

And now a few days later, I'm still wondering what to have for dinner! It's really hot today so I'm thinking salad...

It's cold here because of the rain we've gotten this past week, so we had chili tonight.

Its hot here today we went swimming yesterday. Let's see being the domestic goddess that I am we will probably be having chicken and rice tonight. As far as reading (looks at my tbr pile and sighs) I know I want to read everything in that pile but have you ever had a time when nothing jumps out at you and screams "READ ME" ? I am having one of those weeks grrrrrrr... I have a ton of YA stuff to read but I'm not really in that mood. I think I need to go back to bed and start my day over! Can I get a re-do?

I'm with you, hollie. It was 5 degrees here this morning.

We had hamburgers for dinner tonight - easy treat for the kids, who behaved so nicely for daddy while mommy was at work all day.

If it's any consolation, it's getting cooler here in NZ. Sometimes I need a vest when I take the dog for a walk in the morning.

Reading slump - isn't it terrible when you have a pile of books in the to-read pile and can't find anything to read! I hate that.

For paranormal lovers - have any of you read Unshapely Things by Mark Del Franco. It's a little bit different with a druid hero. It's not a romance - more urban fantasy. Here's a quick blurb:

In the alleys of the decrepit Boston neighborhood known as the Weird, fairy prostitutes are turning up dead. The crime scenes show signs of residual magic, but the Guild, which polices the fey, has more "important" crimes to investigate and dumps the case on human law enforcement. Boston police call in Conner Grey, a druid and former hotshot Guild investigator-whose magical abilities were crippled after a run-in with a radical environmentalist elf. As Connor battles red tape and his own shortcomings, he realizes that the murders are not random, but part of an ancient magical ritual. And if Connor can't figure out the killer's M.O., the culmination of the spell might just bring about a worldwide cataclysm.

This is the first book in the series. The next book, which I haven't read yet is called Unquiet Dreams.

I've also been reading YA recently. I've just finished I'd Tell You I Love You, But Then I'd Have To Kill You by Ally Carter. It's about a group of girls who attend a spy girl. I enjoyed it, apart from the ending. I'll probably pick up the next in the series when it comes out.

This book has been optioned for a Disney movie.

PS - I had pasta for dinner. Rigatoni with a tomato, mushroom and spinach sauce.

I am so glad you mentioned this book. I've been looking at Unquiet Dreams and it looks like a good read, but I didn't know if it was a first book or what and I kept forgetting to look it up. LOL!
