October TBR Challenge

This months TBR challenge was to read a paranormal or fantasy book.

I chose Dark Celebration by Christine Feehan.

What a disappointment! It isn't that it was a bad book so much as it was so much longer than it should have been (I know this is a shock coming from me, short stories piss me off). The same phrase/scene/etc. was repeated over and over and over again. Hammered into the reader really.

I got this book from the library. It made me angry that the rest of her series was in mass market paperback and this one was hard cover so I refused to buy it. THANK GOD! It's the first time I had to force myself to finish one of her books.

I guess if you're new to this series (the Dark Carpathians) then the story would have been good. (Everything was certainly over explained for anyone who has read any of the other books). It was a collosal disappointment for me though. I'm really glad I didn't buy it. If I had it probably would have been a wall banger and it CERTAINLY would have been given away.

It's Snowing!

It looks pretty now but I KNOW I'm going to hate the shovelling. I'm waiting until after supper tonight to do that though. (If I don't wait I'll just have to do it again anyways)

Happy Halloween (a little early)

Someone sent me this in an e-mail.

Okay this just makes me giggle for no sane reason *snort* I have no idea what he's saying but OH. MY. GOD.

And because I was taking pictures

Just for you Dakota :)

The sun was at the wrong angle for me to get a good picture of the mountains. It's a pretty view though :)

What I'm doing this weekend

*sigh* yard work
