The morning's flying by too quick, I slept until 7:30 which is late for me and have been alternating reading Sue Henry's Degrees of Separation
and browsing communities here at LJ, still not feeling good about the LOTF ending and see that a lot of others feel the same way.
I did a new post at shadowsofmindor
about a new blurb at starwars.com. Check it out if you get a chance. I've got my hopes pinned on getting the real
Luke Skywalker back in this upcoming novel.
The Sue Henry book I'm reading, Degrees of Separation
, is about her long-running character Jessie Arnold who lives in Alaska and trains sled dog teams. It's a mystery and there's always some kind of crime for Jessie to solve. But the characters are always interesting and the location too and so I always like curling up with one of these books.
I've just finished Nevada Barr's latest, Winter Study
, a couple of days ago but was surprised I didn't like it as much as previous ones. There was a claustrophobic feel to it with them practically being trapped at a park (the lead character Anna is a park ranger and usually is in a different park in every book) near one of the Great Lakes during winter. And Anna seemed much more vulnerable and slightly out of character in this one and that didn't sit too well with me.
And I have a family party to get to a 3:00 this afternoon and I am NOT in a party and socializing mood. I'm in a hermit mood. A stay in out of the sticky heat and no-I-don't-want-a-piece-of-birthday-cake mood.
