This must be confession week. First, I readily admit to hating weddings. Second, I confess that I have never, ever, in all of my days, watched Survivor. It seems dumb, dorky, and totally contrived. I bought Wicked Games on a Twitter recommendation, and when I realized it was a Survivor-type contemporary romance, got pissed off. Well.....in a moment of boredom, I decided to give it a go. And I loved it, in spite of its reality-television-based premise. I am quickly becoming a Jill Myles fan. This was a fun, quick read, filled with sexy island time and a totally satisfying romantic ending. I still have no interest in watching Survivor, but this book was probably way more entertaining. I think I will try one of Ms. Myles' paranormal romances next....maybe Gentlemen Prefer Succubi?
Next up, on the reading horizon.....Jane Eyre, which I downloaded for free on my Kindle. I'm starting with the classic, then tackling the mash-up Jane Slayre by Sherri Erwin. I also got another M/M recommendation from Mandi, Tigers and Devils by Sean Kennedy. This one sounds sweet and romantic, so hopefully I won't bail in a panic (flashbacks of bearotica are popping into my head....hee hee!).
On a Debbie Downer note, I have decided not to attend the national RWA meeting this June. :^(
I barely survived the NEC meeting this past weekend, and that was a small, quick affair, unlike the jumbo extravaganza in New York. As much as it pains me to admit this, I'm not the same person I was pre-heart attack. Some of that is good (I'm 45 pounds lighter) and some of it is bad (I'm totally exhausted from my meds). I am still planning to attend the New Jersey RWA conference in the fall, especially since I will be able to do my first book signing there (yay!).
Hope everyone is having a fun reading week! Let me know!
