As I type this I've got bookmarks in 3 different books:
- The Burning by Susan Squires--I've still not finished this one, put it aside figuring to pick it back up soon, but have had no interest in finishing.
- The Outrageous Debutante by Anne O'Brien--a Harlequin Historical written by British author. This is the 2nd Regency period historical I've read this month written by a British author, it seems that just about every book in this period I pick up is written by an American. I'm noticing differences in language and description--interesting.
- Deep Freeze by Lisa Jackson--I have not read a Lisa Jackson book in years. I ran into the UBS yesterday and the clerk "HIGHLY" recommended this one. We'll see.
Normally, I read quick and finish one book before starting another. A paranormal, a historical and a romantic suspense, one of them should be able to hold my attention long enough to finish.
I've been through the May Romantic Times 3 times. Nothing looks remotely interesting. I know the problem is me.
A little off the topic, but my brain kind of works that way...
Has everyone already checked out Karen's discussion about cursing. It's a good one.
I don't really curse, it was one of those "do as I say, not as I do" things we hear growing up. When I was little my mother cursed like a trucker, but when I told my sister "f*** you" when I was 4, she cleaned up her mouth. Once in a while she'll let something fly when she's really mad.
When it comes to cursing in a book, I expect it to fit the character and storyline. I don't expect "f*** you" out of the mouth of a debutante, but I do out of the mouth of a man on a construction site. Just my thoughts on the subject.
Have a good one and happy reading.
