I love those ladies. Their blog is always so upbeat, and a lot of fun. I've been a follower for a while now. In fact, it may have been the very first book blog I started following, so it was really special to see my own book reviewed on their site. Thank you, ladies! You rock my casbah!
We're facing a potentially debilitating ice storm here at the Ides of March, so I'm racing to get my online work done in case we lose power. One of the things I've been meaning to do has been to review the books I sat down and read yesterday. I made myself take a reading day, which is kind of my version of a taking a sanity day at work. It was great. In addition to the two books I've put up for review today, I also read J.L. Bryan's Jenny Pox, which blew me away. It was wonderful in a mind-blowing, brain-twisting, etc. etc. fill-in gruesome but worshipful metaphor way. With an impending ice storm and the possibility that we might lose power, I think I'll wait to write my review for it. Plus I just need time to process it.
This leaves the last bit of work for ROW80 for tomorrow's check in. It's not supposed to get really nasty until tomorrow night, so I should be able to get everything done. Why am I being so meticulous about this? Because I live in the South and we freak out about snow and ice. The schools have closed for Monday already, and we've been told to expect widespread power outages. Since Auburn is playing in the National Championship for the first time since 1952 on Monday night, the prospect of losing power is enough to cause a state-wide panic. It's not real if you can't watch it on TV, you know. And we take our football very seriously here in the SEC. Hopefully there won't be riots. I plan to download a hoard of books to my fully charged Kindle, because the battery will last for a month (according to the website.) At any rate. here are my reviews:
