Like a bad penny that keeps turning up, I'm back from my hiatus. We spent Thanksgiving with the in-laws, which meant Wendy was out in the boonies with no cable TV, no computer, and if you don't have Verizon as your cell phone provider? Yeah, you don't have a cell phone. Plus, you know, I spent the week in freezing temperatures with about a foot of snow on the ground. Let's just say what passes for cold around the Bat Cave seems downright tropical in comparison. So, what happened while I was away? Well, a few things.....
Heroes & Heartbreakers. November was an intriguing month. Usually these lists feature a little bit of everything, but for November it was all America vs. Great Britain. So while the settings may be familiar, there is a nice variety. Everything from whisky runners to those upstart colonists!
Head on over and check it out.
Warning: Spoilers for Season Four of Boardwalk Empire commencing in 3, 2, 1.....
Since I was away in the boonies with no cable TV - that meant I had to wait a whole week to watch the season finale of Boardwalk Empire. We finally watched it last night and....
This was a pretty mediocre season for me. I spent the whole season waffling between annoyance and disinterest in the Dr. Narcisse character and while I "get" he almost has to be included in a show that essentially plays around with real historical events/characters - ugh, J. Edgar Hoover.
So much for a blaze of glory.
Oh well. At least we still have yummy pictures of Jack Huston sans Richard's mask to keep us warm at night.
I got a lot of reading done while I was away, so expect several book reviews over the next few days. You know, just as soon as I carve out some time to write them. A nice mix of contemporary and historical romance and not a single dud in the bunch! Yippee!
