Updates: Oh the Weather Outside is Frightful

But curling up under a thick blanket with a cup of hot tea and a good book makes you forget about the miserable snow-cloud skies. Until you have to get up and go to work the next morning. ;) But it's nice while it lasts. I saw someone write in a recent post that she'd never seen snow, and I was like, "You. Me. Trade. NOW." Oh well, fingers crossed the weather people get the snow forecast totally wrong. Again. ;)

The last quarter of the book finally delivered on some of the action and magical danger the synopsis promised, but it was too little, too late. Unless you want to read about a girl who won't shut up about her crush, I recommend passing on Hexed.

Currently Reading:

I'm almost through The Fog Diver, which is a fairly entertaining post-apocalyptic middle grade adventure full of airships, mutineers and the ever present, ever dangerous nanite Fog. Once I finish this, I'm hoping to pick up the pace (before I fall hopelessly behind on my GR Challenge) and churn through all my eARC's. On deck are: Uprooted, Siren's Fury, Rebel Mechanics, Powerless, and yes, still, Illusionarium.

That's it for this week's happenings! Thanks for stopping in and check back tomorrow for my review of Vision in Silver by Anne Bishop! In which humans are on a...highway to the danger zone! :)


  1. The Fog Diver sounds fun! But yes, totally over this winter. It was actually over freezing today which is rare.

    1. The Fog Diver was pretty fun! (Though I'm unclear on whether it's a standalone.) Ouch, it sounds like you got the short end of the weather stick. We actually hit the low 40's last night while it rained, but now it's pouring snow. I'm still hoping the weather people are wrong about the projected 5-8 inches. :(

  2. Snagged a copy of Siren's Fury, but it is just one of those covers I want in physical form. I'll see how it reads first.
    I still can't believe there are people in America that haven't seen snow. Well, I guess maybe that isn't so hard. It just seems like the weather is soooo crazy these days that it is snowing everywhere!

    1. I have pretty high hopes for Siren's Fury, so I hope it's good enough to warrant a pretty hardcover for my collection.

      Yes, those poor, deprived folks who have never seen snow... House exchange for the winter! ;)

    2. ooo that would be fun actually! Think I could find someone from Hawai'i? :D

  3. I completely missed that Siren's Fury was up on NG so thank you for pointing it out!! Yeah, our snow is finally melting and I'm so freaking relieved!

    1. You are very welcome! I think we may have reached 50 today, so here's hoping for more of the same!
