The WTMF stands for "What Tickles My Fancy." But I can see that I could have gone in a whole other direction with that. *grins* I'll try and behave. Really.
I tried the Christina Dodd book, but I simply couldn't get into it. When I was still in the early throes of the book...and the manacled man was considering beading...I was done. So there it is.
However, I decided to blog about Awaken Me Darkly by Gena Showalter.
I read this a couple of week ago, and it's worth buying.
It was an alien romance. There weren't a lot of technical terms and words to stumble over. The characters were great. And I was going to rate this a B. But then I hit THE TWIST. And OMG! That pulled this book right up to an A-. Because it was utterly delicious. Utterly. So check this one out. Well worth the time and effort.
I picked up Angels and Demons by Dan Brown the other day at the Friends of the Library sale. I thought HEY! I really enjoyed The DaVinci Code; I should fall all over myself for this one. Let me just say that it's exactly the same. I'm twenty pages in and expect an albino to pop out and start whipping himself. And I'm not saying the book is bad. Quite the contrary. It's very well written and humorous. And I'm curious to see how it ends. But it's so similar to TDC...it's disappointing.
I really must find something that captures my attention and makes me forget I should be writing. Or maybe that's a good thing in itself.
