I hate Daylight Savings Time. This is not new information for anyone who knows me or follows me on any social media. I also hate campaign season. I do love my answering machine though. I just wish I could the ringer off on the phone. I can only hope that things will go back to semi-normal after tomorrow. And that’s all I’m going to say of a political nature. Y’all don’t care what I think–as you shouldn’t. Any intelligent adult should be able to look at the sides, arguments, debates, and have enough common sense to make their own decisions. I won’t tell you how to vote, y’all don’t tell me how, and we’ll all get along just fine.
Reading. I did some of the listening variety. I hit the top of the hold list at the library for the audio version of Jennifer Estep’s lastest release, KILL THE QUEEN. It’s fantasy of the nearly epic kind with a hint of romance. I enjoyed both a new-to-me author and new-to-me narrator. I’m also in the middle of a re-listen of Nalini Singh’s Archangel/Guildhunter series because her latest released last week. Once I get through with it, I’m looking forward to a re-listen of Ilona Andrew’s Hidden Legacy series, because the new release in that series comes out tomorrow. I’ve hit my 220 book challenge on Goodreads so I upped my total to 240. I’m pretty sure I’ll read/listen to at least 20 more books this year.
Writing: Yeah…It’s National Novel Writing Month. I am making some progress. Not steady. Not good, but progress. ‘Nuff said.
TV: I’m all over the cops stuff lately: “Live PD,” “Live PD Presents: PD Cam.” I do love me some Sticks Larkin from Tulsa PD Gang Unit. *happy feminine sigh of appreciation* I need to get back into watching the series/movies/etc. that are stacking up on my DVR.
Sports: Yeah…It was a split this weekend. After beating a ranked Texas LAST week, OSU couldn’t seal the deal over Baylor this week. OU managed to hang on to their game against Texas Tech.
Have I mentioned that I HATEHATEHATE with stabbyfork hate DST? It screws up my sleep, my eating times, and the ebb and flow of my energy.
OH! One other bit of interesting book news. I’d gotten an email that I’d won an ARC of a book that I was looking forward to reading once copies hit the library. I’d read the first book as part of a contest (which is why I’m not mentioning titles) and enjoyed it. So, the other day, I get a package from Tor/Macmillan and I’m thinking, wow, that was fast. Only it wasn’t the book I one, it was an ARC if “THE RUIN OF KINGS” by Jenn Lyons, who is not the Jennifer Lyon whose books I love, and who is a good friend. This book has a dragon on the cover–always a good sign–and is being touted as the epic fantasy of 2019. At 500+ pages, it will take me some time, as it’s in print. I have no clue how I got on their radar, but yippee! Free books. And I should read more fantasy. It used to be my genre of choice.
And that’s it for me. What interesting things are you reading, writing, watching, playing, doing?
