"Tonight's as good a night as any."



I am pretty freakin' amazed that I didn't have any zombie dreams last night. Holy Carumba! The season finale of The Walking Dead was just a bit out of control. Especially after the weird creepy thing with its 2 "pets" rescued Andrea. That was hands-down the scariest shizz on the show. Forget about the zombies!

My favorite line was when Daryl asked Hershel if he was ready to die. Hershel said yes. And Daryl said "Tonight's as good a night as any." And then hopped off the porch. That guy is BAD-ASS with a capital BAD-ASS. Yeeeeeee hawwwwwww!!!!!!!

All right....time for Monday morning updates. (Sips coffee calmly).

1. I finished One Good Reason by Sarah Mayberry, and Ridley was right. It was 5 stars, all the way. This is not my usual read...it's a Harly, a contemporary, and filled with angsty characters. But I'll tell you this, I lived that book. My heart rate was racing during the explosive first love scene, my anxiety went up when Gabby was getting drunk off her ass at the big holiday party, my tear ducts were leaking (heavily!) when Jon and his brother finally embraced for the first time, after many years of abuse at the hands of their father. It was an extremely emotional and satisfying read.

Grade: A

2. I re-read A Hunger Like No Other by Kresley Cole (one of my fav re-reads). This is one of the best paranormal books out there (in my not-at-all humble opinion). Love the Scottish werewolves, love the superficial crazy-ass fey who love their bling and lop off heads without a moment's hesitation, love how Emma the Timid turns into Emma the King Killer. The sex in this book is the hottest stuff going.

Grade: A

Well, it looks like Boston skipped winter and is heading right into summer. It's supposed to be in the 80s this week! Craziness!

Happy Monday,
Penelope

Andrea knocked it out of the park for me. She's awesomely ass-kicking.
And yes, did dream about zombies all night long...

I actually thought Andrea was going to die in the last scene. I had a bad feeling about that. I couldn't see any way for her to survive. That ending was wickedly cool! She is the true survivor of the bunch....used her guns, her axe, her fists, her feet...whatever it took to fight those mo-fos off. I agree...she wins Master Zombie Slayer for the episode.

I guess I'm going to have to try One Good Reason now. ::sigh:: There you go, forcing me to buy books again. ;)
