Everything I have written in the last few days has turned out lame.
I think I have discovered the problem.
I have blog block.
Now, I'm not really sure it exists but, I'm sucking wind over here. Oh, sure, there was the brilliant follow-up to the epilogue post that was squashed horribly when I went to get the book I was talking about only to discover that it didn't have an epilogue. I was going to point out the good kind of epilogue and since I could only remember two I thought it was fine because they both illustrated a different point. Now, I only have one epilogue I can remember that was good and well, I guess it kinda makes it's own point.
Upcoming books? I don't have a clue. I don't even have a list! I'm trusting that they will jump off the shelf at me the next time I go to the bookstore. I know JR Ward should be out in the next few weeks and that Loretta Chase's next one will be out. Other than that, I don't have a clue. If I do have an idea of a book I would like to buy it is either by someone I have never heard of *screams of fear* or someone I have heard of and have 5 books of theirs that I have not read yet.
Oh, that brings up my new two book rule. If I haven't read an author's book and I have two at home then I cannot buy that new book.
Hey, it took me years to perfect this!!
I got lucky with Kleypas since I have like 9 of her books in the house. Also lucky with Julia Quinn although the first time I tried her I thought she wasn't for me. The last book of hers that I read did leave a bad taste in my mouth but I'm hoping it was a fluke. The character Colin was supposed to be charming but he was a jerk and very brutish. I didn't see anything of the character I had been led to believe he was.
Anyways, I'm obviously just rambling now and instead of being 'boo'ed of the stage I will leave with my dignity in tack.
Hey! Tomatoes!? You would throw tomatoes!?
I'm going to go and read something, so there.
Now, if only I could decide which frickin' book I want to read next!
I was actually writing a blog where you guys could pick the next book I should read (somebody gag Kristie! I'm saving *that* book and I'm not nearly in as bad a shape as I could be so, I'm not breaking that glass!) but then I decided it was lame because how can I possibly not pick a book?
I would suggest procrastination but I know that's not it. It's just fear that the book I will pick could be bad and also the feeling of being overwhelmed by all the good books I have laying around and need to be reading NOW! It's like trying to pick which piece of gold you would like to be made into a ring. They're just all so pretty and would make great rings.
Crap, I'm rambling again.
I'm a mess.
I do want to wish a certain someone a Happy Birthday - she knows who she is!
