Yesterday, I ran into the UBS looking for Elizabeth Thornton's The Marriage Trap, it the first in the series and I figured I probably should start with that, but as soon I walked in the door, what I wanted went out of my head and I picked up:
- The new Romantic Times with Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Side of the Moon on the cover. I don't read Kenyon, hopefully I'll find something good.
- Stobie Piel's Prince of Ice, I have no idea why I bought this book, I was thinking about picking up something used by her, since I've never read her, but they only had westerns and I wasn't in the mood for a western.
- Emma Holly's The Top of Her Game, I've been looking at this one for the last several visits and decided it was time to get it.
- A beautiful birthday card for my SILFH, I'm tempted to save it for my sister, her birthday is later this month, and get something else for the darling SIL.
I was about to close this post because I couldn't remember what else I wanted to say, but I sat for a minute and it's come back to me.
Dear Author has become one of my favorite review sites, even if I don't post, I read all their very clever reviews. I've noticed that authors are commenting about their reviews and I'm curious how readers/reviewers feel about this? Especially when the review is less than favorable.
I'm picking this one up from Amanda, who picked it up from Lindy on one of the RT message boards:
"I don't write romances, where there is nothing more than the man and woman getting together and then being torn apart and the rest of the book is about their getting back together. My books are too complex for romance readers.."
At first I was insulted, then I thought it was funny and then I thought it was rather sad. Amanda has a link to her website, and it doesn't seem like she's had anything published in 6 or 7 years. I have no idea if the quote is accurate, but if it is, are romance reader really perceived as this stupid?
That's all I can think about right now. I've got 10 loads of clean folded laundry to put away and they're calling to me.
Have a good one and happy reading.
