Afraid of vamps

umm its never a good thing to read freaky books before bed! I have known that for years, but what i didn't know was that its not good to read books about vampires, eat cheesecake brownies and be stressed out before going to bed... Very bad combo!!!

so far im liking The Historian. We have been having lots of rainy dreary weather around here so it definately helps with the mood. im at page 90 and while there have been bits and pieces of action, there really dosn't seem to have been much going on. its not as bad as the whitney otto book though... ehh we will see

pink dosn't stink....

OK. .. i finished the secret history of the pink carnation last night. It didn't stink. it had a lot of good things in it. it kept my attention.. and so what if there was a bit too much romance thrown in.. that's what makes a good book a good book for some people.. not me though. I liked the little twist at the end. I'm not going to give anything away if that's what you are reading this blog to find out. you are just going to have to read the book for yourself.

OK. so its October now. its supposed to be a scary month full of ghouls and bumps in the night so i figure why not read a scary book too. I've already read the typical Dracula and Frankenstein.. so I'm getting a bit crazy this year. This year I'm taking on Elizabeth Kosteva's The historian. I didn't think i would ever crack this book.. mostly because of all the negative things i heard about it.. mostly that it was slow going and a bit boring.. but i am willing to at least try it. My friend Jen is going to read it along with me. we figure if we don't like it by page 100 then it will be time to give up on it. so far at page 18 it doesn't feel so bad yet.

pink pink you stink


im reading the secret history of the pink carnation. I have mixed feelings on it. Im about half way done, still don't know the secret of the pink carnation.. which is what is keeping me reading. The stinky part of this book is that its got way too much romance in it. I could care less if the good guy spy is feeling up the hero chick or whatever.. i don't want to read about a kiss for three stinking pages.. it just doesn't do it for me. im sure that when i get to the end of the book ill have lots to say. but for now im just happy that i know that romance like this does not happen in real life, and for those who think it does and are expecting it.... well its not ever going to be that way so stop waiting!!!
