Their excitement over the packages I received during the ‘Bloody 16’ week was as nearly as much as mine. I could practically see them sitting on the edge of their office chairs, waiting on tenterhooks to find out what books I had got in the mail.
In order to put them out of their misery – and to stop the begging and whining – it is my pleasure to reveal… *whips off red velvet cover*…
If you’re interested in finding out more about these, see info in Smugglivus 2008 ‘best ofs’ here, here and here.
Of these, I’ve read Sarah Monette and Elizabeth Bear’s A Companion to Wolves (which I’ll talk about in another post – I may even *gasp* do a review) and am now part way through Linnea Sinclair’s Gabriel’s Ghost.
I know; kind of a letdown after all the bitching I did about desperately needing to open the packages to get to my eagerly awaiteds.
I blame the ‘mood reader’ thing. I needed to first satisfy my m/m romance craving and then I got distracted by more boy-germ, action/adventure books by Matthew Reilly.
Utterly hopeless. *sigh*
How did you like A Companion to Wolves?
What, you can’t wait until I do my review? lolIn all honesty though my feelings were mixed about this book. I think one of the reasons I want to write about it is because, even a week after I finished it, I’m still really conflicted and need to articulate the way I’m feeling.
Woopwoop! The Loot, the loot! :)Yes, we are evil, remorseless enablers–and you know you love it! Ana and I will be reading Melusine for the end of February (Kristen, whose Smugglivus post prompted it all, dared us!)–so we’ll have some goodness to talk about. How are you liking Gabriel’s Ghost??
It was Kristen’s post that sucked me in too! I’ll make sure that I read it before the end of Feb so I can particpate intelligently (more than I usually do anyway *g*) in the discussion.I am liking ‘Gabriel’s Ghost’, although as I said I did get/have been distracted by other new arrivals. Sci Fi is a little bit harder for me to get into (not my fave of the speculative fictions – I prefer watching it to reading it), but what I’d heard about Linnea Sinclair intrigued me. I read her ‘Zombies’ first to see if I could connect with her writing and really enjoyed that so thought I’d give ‘GG’ a whirl. Not sure at this point yay or nay, but, as I said, I’m liking it so far.
