Apr 12: “Dragon’s Redemption” by Eden Ashe, #2 in the Dragon Lore series, a paranormal romance at 212 pages. Blurb from Goodreads: When her brother goes missing, everything in Lily Cage's world turns upside down. Born a Hunter female, the last thing she needs is an attraction to
the scariest dragon in existence. The one known as The Destroyer. With peace
between the Hunters and Dragons hanging by a thread, one wrong move on Lily or
Dallas's part could catapult them all back into war. But with Dallas playing by his own rules and someone
on the outside decimating her life, they have a choice--stand and fight, or
lose everything they never realized they wanted. I didn’t love this
one like I did the first book, but then my head’s not into reading so much
right now (gee… I wonder why?). I’d like to blame my head instead of the book,
but actually, it’s probably a bit of both. Which is a shame, because it was an
interesting story. It just felt a little…rushed. Dallas
Well… the book signing at the library didn’t go so well (but I got pictures!). I had one visitor, who didn’t read romance. No one else stopped by to say hi.
I must look scary or something.
Then again, not many people wandered into the library. It was raining all day long! Plus, this is
smaller branch. The woman running the 2nd Monday Authors program said more
traffic comes through the other branch and that they may end up switching it so
that all the 2nd Monday Author events happen in the other library. And, if the
program is still going on next year (and she hopes it is, because she doesn’t
feel there are enough author events around), she said she’d invite me back next
year in the other branch. So, that’s nice. Plus, all three of my Bitten by Love
books were checked out! Gotta look at the positives, huh? Centerville
My doctor appointment yesterday went pretty much as I expected. I’m scheduled for an echocardiogram next Wednesday and have a stress echo to look forward to in the near future. Oh joy!
So…This happened yesterday (see picture). Luckily, I was able to boot Big Red up on the second try. I am so not amused. I sent this picture to Dell. From now on that’s what I’m gonna do. Take pictures and send them. Then maybe they’ll replace Big Red. I’m sure Dell will call back when I’m not home, because that’s what they do!
So… Do you find reading difficult when it seems the whole world is against you or is reading a means to escape? I had really hoped for that escape, so maybe the world really IS against me.
Because I look scary or something. J
P.S. I noticed Blogger must have changed the way pictures post. I didn't get the option to make the picture larger or smaller and I had to drag the picture instead of clicking on Left/Right/Center. Why do they have to keep messing with stuff that isn't broken???? Why am I always whining??? Wasn't I supposed to stay positive??? Ugh. I'll do better next post.
