The new year is still shiny!

Today I got my hair beautified. I’m looking pretty spiffy! Then I walked up the street to one of my fav stores in town and they were having a 30% off sale. I did not leave empty handed. Then I came home and got some writing done.

Am up to chapter 3 three on revisions for My Beloved Assassin. It’s going well.

Tomorrow is mailing day for several December Extravaganza prizes. Two packages are heading off to Africa. My thanks to everyone who dropped by to answer my silly questions!

I read a bunch of books during my break.

  • Covet by JR Ward — still thinking about what I think
  • A vampire book with a heroine I adored, but the rest — meh. And the ending. WTF?
  • Susan Elizabeth Phillips No One’s Baby But Mine I enjoyed this book, but I have an issue with a woman tricking a man into impregnating her without his knowledge. That’s just too wrong for me to believe in such a heroine.
  • Susan Elizabeth Phillips Glitter Baby Also enjoyed this one. But it’s dated. This must have been one one the last generational Romances written. I kind of miss them.

Did anyone else read Covet? What did you think?

    Hi Carolyn! I read Covet, I love JR Ward, but didn't care for this book too much. I understand she was building her new world, but I think she lacked in her romance (it was unbelievable) and she didn't write enough about Jim and the other angels. It bordered between being too much information and not enough information, does that make sense?

    and FYI – Looking forward to Durian's story!

    I've had JR Ward's books on my wishlist for a long time but haven't gotten around to reading them yet. PNR is not my favorite type of book so I tend to save them when I have nothing else to read….but my aunt tells me "I don't know what I'm missing"…she's in love with them all!!!

    I have read all of her books and was disappointed. I just got bored with the story. A couple of other books in the series felt the same way which is bumming me out. The early ones are awesome though. I am still holding out hope!
