I just read the first three books in the Immortal Vegas series (box set). I quite enjoyed them. Urban paranormal fantasy. Tarot cards, adventure, Atlantis, and lots more. This set was free for Nook. I will keep an eye out for the rest in the series.

WTF?!!?!!

Libby1 I think this was my husband‘s response to this book, too. After trudging through The Bone Clocks I decided to pass on this one. 4y

I finished this one today. I am loving these books by Maas. Waiting for the next one is going to be stressful.

GypsyKat I'm with you about the stress of waiting. AND the next one is just going to be about Chaol. We don't get to find out about Aelin until 2018! 😭 5y
JEMoutrageous @GypsyKat I read that. I am very sad about it. No other book I have read since, has come close to being as good as that Maas books. It has taken away my ability to write coherent sentences as well. 5y
GypsyKat @JEMoutrageous Haha! I hear you! I really like her writing style, and I loved the world as well. 5y

Thanks so much @LaurenReads ! #cupidgoespostal makes life awesome. I love the P&P colouring (British spelling, of course) book. I will be on that in no time. And the socks are perfect. I think that my Nook may just fit in the pouch you sent. If not, it may be my new to go bag for coloring implements. The pen and chocolate are headed with me to the Dominican Republic tomorrow. And the gift card is above & beyond. Thank you so much. I love it all.

JEMoutrageous Ahhh! It is not a pen, but one of those old school pencils. Perfect for my crosswords on the plane! 5y

Saved | Lorhainne Eckhart

I can't believe I actually read this entire thing. It was horrible. If this was historical fiction hearkening to 1782 then maybe I would have liked it. I kept waiting for the captain to have some sort of epiphany. He did not. So the woman marries the captain who saves her from the man who bought her, but she now is basically in the same sort of imprisonment. Please don't bother with this one.

Just finished this. Loved it. I think I like Throne of Glass better, but KA female assassin protagonists almost always win in my book. Though I have high hopes for Feyre. I think I own the next book in this series. I really hope I do. I just do not need to buy another book right now. *Sigh* Don't worry. I'll buy it if I have to.

AliBG I loved this book too--until I read the second one and then I loved the second one so much I couldn't believe I'd ever liked the first one. No writer has EVER gotten me to flip like that. 5y

Another excellent book by Maas. The next one comes out in September. The only saving grace is that at the end of each book you feel satisfied. There is a true beginning, middle and end. I don't feel like I am going to go out of my mind if I don't have the next book immediately.

AliBG Unlike A COURT OF MIST AND FURY! 5y
JEMoutrageous Uh Oh @AliBG I was coming to start that tonight. Should I wait until the next on comes out this spring? 5y

Thought I would give you all a taste of yesterday's Women's March in DC. It was unbelievable how many people were there. I saw several librarian signs but could not get my phone out fast enough.

So, I live in DC. We are going to the movies and avoiding the metro and the downtown area. Last night, I accidentally gave directions to a Trump wack-a-doo on my way home from work. He was looking for "Trump Tower," so he could "pay his respects." Ugh. I am avoiding federal DC, and enjoying the "DC as F*ck" portion of the city I love. Maybe I will hit an anti-inauguration concert later. DC is known for its punk bands. Tomorrow, the woman's march.

JEMoutrageous I guess I could stay home and read too. 5y

Everyone said I would love it. And I do. I really do. I read The Assassin's Blade first and it really filled in a lot of things. I am glad I chose to do that. It made me feel like I had insight into the characters. I started the next book on my way into work. I feel a little greedy for the series and like I will be sad when it is over.

Shameless plug for my sister. She works for 49th State Brewery in Denali, Alaska. It has the bus from the movie version of Into the Wild on its property. McCandless spent some time in Healey, Alaska, about 5 minutes from the brewery. This past summer she had some musicians record songs on The Bus. So listen to some tunes. 😁😎 https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLTnARQSD7XREDqV6MXGm8jScICcqfU2tj

On Tuesday, I visited the National Museum of African-American History and Culture. I was only there for about 2.5 hours, so I only made it through the culture part of the museum. One of the docents suggested we do that part because of the amount of time we had before it closed. It is one of the best museums I have ever visited. My kudos to the curators. Now I have to make plans to go see the rest of it. Next tix available in April.

I am strictly an #ereader. I love my Nook. I currently have 1,096 unread books on it. A good majority of them were free or less than $2. I originally received an e-reader because my boyfriend could not take all the books in our small apartment. Then he one for me with a glowlight so I would not bother him at night. I am on my fourth Nook. I got my sister hooked on them too, because she travels all over the place.💓💓💓💓💓 #seasonsreadings2016

So once I finished The Beast, I needed some more JR Ward. The Angels' Share is the second book in The Bourbon Kings series.

I quite enjoy the series. #romantsy

Taming of the shrew | William Shakespeare
post image
Panpan

Last night, I went and saw a play, Tame by Janelle Walker. It was written in response to The Taming of the Shrew. I can't say that it was good. It was rather convoluted. The playwright did not show that a shrew is just a patriarchal construct. Kat just came off as grieving, mentally ill and ill used, not a strong willed woman that knows what she wants.

Kiss Tomorrow Goodbye | Horace McCoy

This was published in 1948, if I remember correctly. There was a lot of slang in here that I did not know, and I actually had to look up a bunch of words. Not my favorite book, but I can imagine why people liked it and why they made a movie of it. It definitely had that dark noir feel that was popular at the time. There were no redeeming characters.

This book was interesting. The author used stream of consciousness to show how the main character's mind worked. This, and a bit of Irish slang, made for a difficult read. Some of the action was a bit difficult as well. I picked this up on Nook for a couple of bucks, so keep an eye out for it. I am glad I read it, but I definitely do not want to read it again.
