Random Stuff

I don't have much to blog about today. I'm trying to finish up Ride the Fire by Pamela Clare and loving it. A great book with two very tortured souls set in an unusual time period of pre-Revolutionary War America. And the hero is to die for! I'll try to write a short review later.

Don't you just love the little image in my profile? It's one of Raphael's cherubs from the Sistine Chapel. I took an Art History class in college as an elective because I needed a break from all those computer and math theory classes and it made quite an impression on me. Sometime in my life I must get to Italy and see Florence and the Sistine Chapel. I have seen these little cherubs almost everywhere I go. They're on mugs, T-shirts, and I think I even saw them at Target on something. Anyway, I love them.

What else? Oh, cleaned out Mt. TBR a bit. Found a Blaze called Scent of a Woman by Jo Leigh that looked good so I pulled it out to put in my nightstand pile of what to read next.

Pretty slow today.

I LOVED Ride the Fire too! So far it's my favourite book published in 2005 - and we're in the middle of August. Have you read the other two in the series?

No, in fact I didn't know it was a series, but this morning (before work.. just had to read a few more pages) she introduces Nicholas' family members which made me think they had their own story. What are the titles? Did you like them?

Sweet Release is her first book. I really liked this one. It's the story of Nicholas' parents.
The second, Carnal Gift didn't fare so well for me. I tried to get into it 3 times but I intensely disliked the heroine. But RTF blew me away. I have Extreme Exposure TBR. I read somewhere that she is going to be writing another historical series.

Wow, I haven't touched my blog in over 6 years and I'm still logged in!  Good thing because I have no idea what my password is.  In ...
