My latest column is up over at Romancing The Blog. Read it, live it, love it!
I added an Amazon widget to the sidebar. No particular reason, just because it amused me.
I'm still continuing to post updates over on my Upcoming Historical Romances wiki. New covers! New titles! Go forth and look at the pretty!
In Wendy Is Trying To Jump Start Her Mojo News, I plowed through Fearless Fourteen by Janet Evanovich on audio book yesterday. First, some back story - I've never "read" Evanovich. She's one of my Audio Only authors. This is why I suspect I'm still happily chugging along with this series. Listening, in my opinion, isn't quite as "taxing" as reading. That being said, even listening to this fluffy bit of brain candy was a bit tiresome.
Basically I listen to Evanovich for two reasons: 1) There's usually at least one laugh out loud moment and 2) Ranger says something that makes me have to change my panties. Fearless Fourteen? Nothing funny. No particularly choice Ranger moments. In fact, the author bypasses genuinely funny for a series of inane zany antics that strained credulity (Stephanie getting attacked by blue dye, everything Grandma Mazur does, everything Lula does (seriously, Lula drives me batshit crazy), a stalker who has psychic revelations about flying pizzas etc. etc. etc.) Granted, nobody reads Evanovich looking for realism - but this was just "wackier" than usual in my opinion.
I don't "do" wacky.
So for those of you who resisted the siren call of buying this in hard cover? Yeah, good for you. Because I can so not see paying $27.95 retail for this. Heck, I'd have a hard time forking over $7.99 for the paperback. Go to the library. The waiting lists should be starting to wind down now. Trust me, you can wait for it. Final word on the matter? Blah. Final Grade = C-
