Yeah Yeah - My blog has been dusty but I have a reason. I hate January and had little to say about it.
I did remember to say Rabbit Rabbit though - I am not sure if it works but it can't hurt and Bungerston is adorable, yes?
So, January. I am not a fan. It's cold and dark and makes me stabby. I get ideas and then I just let them sit there because I am not in the mood to create them yet. I think maybe I am waking up a bit but I can't tell if that's because January is over or just because it's 80 degrees today. But will be back to cold tomorrow. Meh.
I did read a lot, which makes the day better in my humble opinion.
Books For January:
The Invisible Library - Genevieve Cogman
The Masked City - Genevieve Cogman
The Burning Page -Genevieve Cogman
The Lost Plot - Genevieve Cogman
(Yes I re-read all the Invisible Library Series and I just loved the new one. I was having trouble waiting for it to release in the US and happily I snagged a UK copy of it (The Secret Chapter) The dragon plots thicken!
Night Sins - Tami Hoag
Dark Paradise - Tami Hoag
(I usually don't read the crime suspense books but these were light and easy to get through and fun)
Under the Dome - Stephen King
(re-re-re-re many re-reads LOL I love this book though. Aside from what causes the Dome, the horror of what people can do makes this one even scarier)
Island of the Lost - Joan Druett
(I wanted to like this book and it had a lot of interesting information and the story was awesome and full of adventure but, it dragggggged. It's about two real ships that crash land on and island at the same time but they don't realize it and how they have to wait to be rescued or find their own ways off - it was just dragggy)
The Stand - Stephen King
(another major re-read but is one of my favorites - not sure it was a good idea with this Corona Virus sprouting about the world)
A Map of Days - Ransom Riggs
(From the Miss Peregrine series, I have the first 3 and had no idea he had written more. I grabbed the ebook version of this book 4 and it was great. A lot darker than the first 3 and book 5 was just released a few days ago.)
From the Corner of His Eye - Dean Koontz
The Face - Dean Koontz
(Aside from the Odd Thomas books, these are my favorite Koontz books and I have re-read them many times. Some of his stuff can get a tad dark even for me - I hate reading about some forms of cruelty, but these two just make great stories)
The Passage - Justin Cronin
The Twelve - Justin Cronin
The City of Mirrors - Justin Cronin
(And I have now re-read these 3 or 4 times now. My head is still in the story as it was so well done. I cried several times at the ends of the various storylines and wish there was more. It may be about the end of the world, apocalypse dystopian type thing and it is all of those things. But it is also about humanity and what we can get up to as well as love. I think overall, it is a love story and that is what really counts in our lives.
And that brings us to February. ..
The Party Bears are back! Yay!
Not vicious or malicious
Just de-lovely and delicious
