I stayed up way late last night writing, then woke up way early this a.m. because groceries were being delivered between 7 and 9.

This totally meant that a nap was in order this afternoon and was accomplished marvelously. ::g::

Enjoying the rest of the evening watching Leverage.

Note to [livejournal.com profile] theamusedone: you were so right. I love it!. Tim Hutton, Christian Kane and gang have fun playing modern day Robin Hoods. Especially enjoying Aldis Hodge as the geek. (I remember him best from Friday Night Lights).


Am fascinated by the new Doctor. He's not what I expected. Unusual and interesting looks and full of passion for the role. I think he'll be great. (Yes, I know of the arguments for someone older, someone of colour, but when it comes down to it, none of us know what went on in the auditions, or the selection process and can't second guess the decision).

Am still obsessively in love with [livejournal.com profile] matociquala's Stratford Man duology, part of her Promethean series. I'm on reading #3 and still finding bits and bobs that I didn't notice before. I've bought yet another set of copies to give as a gift.

It's been a long time since a series has captured me so well, and over the past few weeks, I've discovered three of these:
-- Jenna Black's Morgan Kingsley series
-- Bear's Promethean Man series (see link above)
-- Maggie Stiefvater's [livejournal.com profile] m_stiefvater Lament (which I'm now reading)


Another book rec, though non-series:
Jan Burke's The Messenger - just out and a fascinating premise. I was privileged enough to read an advance copy and was captivated by the concept.

I LOVE being this entranced by books. Contrary to some beliefs, I get energized by reading fabulous books in the genre, even while I'm writing my own. I don't know if this is because I have a very strong grounding in my own "voice", but I don't think that I'm influenced negatively by reading other fiction while in progress with my own book. I just get excited about writing all over again.

On a final note for the night, I'm very excited that AmberKatze's Book Blog listed Blood Bargain as one of the best reads of 2008!
