Desperate Times, Desperate Measures!

I've fallen off my reading train and I'm so not being left behind without a fight.

Deciding that somehow, the book I was reading had become a block for my reading mojo I picked up a book that would be fast, easy and done lickity split.


It had to be done.

MaryJanice Davidson can always be counted on for a fast read and I picked up her latest one while shopping with my book peeps (Lea, Mary, Nath and Kristie). I just couldn't help myself and I'm glad I bought the book because it's going to get me my reading mojo back again!

Small problem is that there is something fairly major that has happened in the previous book and I have no recollection of it. I mean, I'm thinking I would have remembered 'this'. All the same, I can't find the previous book (so maybe I don't have it) or I haven't exactly exhausted myself looking for it.

Cause usually, I have read the previous book, and my memory is becoming a holey mess which makes me fear too many things so let's not think too hard on it.

That said, the book also does not show up anywhere on my blog. The last reference to MJD was Undead and Uneasy and I think the last one was Undead and Unworthy.

Ah well, this book is pretty much re-capping everything that happened in the last book anyways so no worries.

By tomorrow I will have finished a book and I'll move on to the next without over thinking it.

And my reading mojo will stay put!

Hey Cindy
What works for me is I go the author's web-site & read an excerpt. That might help.
Take care & hugs to you & Bob & the kitties.

Hey Cindy :)

everyone needs an author like MDJ is to you, one that can pull you off a reading slump :)

glad you're back :)

by the way, I know we discussed buddy reviewing Untamed together, but I don't think it's going to happen. What about Branded by Fire instead?

Mary - I hadn't thought of reading excerpts - that might just be the ticket!

nath - Branded by Fire absolutely! Seeing as how I've been hunting it for 2 weeks now I should manage to buy and read it in a 2 day period ;)

LOL, that's what I thought :D

The Berkley books usually show up in store the Thursday before the release date... which would be tomorrow... but i don't know how the holiday will affect that :(
