Updates: Blizzard-less

The meteorologists once again failed in spectacular fashion when their blizzard predictions resulted in barely a dusting, and only in the north of the state. Unfortunately, Massachusetts and Connecticut and everybody up that way got the three feet of snow predicted, so I hope they're all okay and not freezing.

Meanwhile, the false-alarm blizzard caused a preemptive cancellation of the Brandon Sanderson signing. I wasn't really up for the hour drive anyway, so no worries. :)

Read:

I really enjoyed Omega City. It has conspiracy theories, danger, great tension throughout and, I think, will appeal to guys and gals. The Clockwork Dagger was okay, but lacking in several departments. I probably won't be reading the sequel.

Currently Reading:

I'm still slowly stubborning my way through Illusionarium. I'm at a point where something exciting should happen next, but I'm not holding my breath. I picked up the other two at the library yesterday and am looking forward to both.

That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my mini-review of Fiendish by Brenna Yovanoff! In which a girl buried alive wakes up. :)

  1. Oo, so Omega City will be freaking amazing to the rest of us? ;-) (I joke because I love you :-P) But seriously, how spec fic is Omega City, I can't tell if it's just adventure or if there is some sci-fi or fantasy in it.

    1. Aggh, the high expectations! They burn! ;) But Omega City is probably more suspense and adventure with a touch of sci-fi. It's about Cold War conspiracies surrounding a certain crazy scientist and inventor...and there's a city...that may or may not contain "Omega" in its name. >.>

  2. Damn. I really want to read the Clockwork Dagger and already bought a copy. So hopefully you are just WRONG. =(

    1. Haha, I hope so too for your sake. :) It wasn't that The Clockwork Dagger was bad exactly. I read through it quickly; it just didn't engage me enough to invest in the sequel.

  3. Still on Heather Dixon, eh? That isnt promising! The Love, Lucy cover looks a bit out of your realm. What do you think so far??

    1. Yes, it's generally not a good sign when it takes me this long on a book. I'll probably finish Illusionarium anyway because it's an eARC and I try to finish those unless it's absolutely, unbearably horrific; but yeah, not super excited. :(

      I finished Love, Lucy. It's not bad, but it's the second European vacation/study abroad YA based on A Room with a View I've read. And some of the plot devices that work well in that era don't work as well in modern day for me. Still, not bad.

  4. I know how it is when a book is just ok and you don't feel compelled to continue. Sorry Illusionarium is turning out so hard for you

    1. It's disappointing, and I'm really surprised because, despite not loving it, I didn't have this problem at all with Dixon's last book. :(
