What I'm Reading: Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich
So, what's on your bookshelves these days?
Lately I've been doing a bit of reading/listening to audiobooks. My husband and I borrowed the audiobook of Garth Stein's The Art of Racing in the Rain. It's one of my new favorite books, and I love the narrator, Enzo, who happens to be a dog. Enzo is a very philosophical dog nearing the end of his life. He wants to be a human in his next life, just like he's heard about on a TV show about the belief in Mongolia related to what happens to a dog's soul when he dies. Enzo tends to watch a lot of TV, especially anything and everything to do with car racing. His master, Denny, is a race car driver struggling with a tragically difficult family situation, and it's a touching and often heartbreaking story. But it's really, really sweet and the ending is perfect!
On the way back from visiting my family for my birthday last weekend, we'd finished that book, so we started listening to Sizzling Sixteen on our Kindle. So far, it's funny, as usual. What I'll be reading next is Undead and Unwed by MaryJanice Davidson. It was a birthday gift, and the story of the newly undead former model/prophesied Vampire Queen sounds like it'll satisfy my Buffy fix. I so miss Buffy the Vampire Slayer!
Anyway, while I should be working on The MirrorMasters tonight, I've been doing other stuff online. Like blogging. And reading other blogs. Nathan Bransford had an awesome link to an Ode to Querying by Tahera. Absolutely hilarious! I'm definitely going to print that out when it's finally time to query. Oh, and I owe a role play post, which I will do this weekend, in addition to finishing chapter 10.
I feel a bit guilty for not working on The MirrorMasters tonight, but it's just not happening until tomorrow. Do any of you feel like that if you don't work on your writing on a given day?
As always, I'd love to hear from all you writers and fantasy fanatics out there :)
