Over the last few days I haven’t been reading all that much–I guess finishing two books in two days takes a lot out of a girl. That definitely played a part in it, but I’ve been in such shock over Cory Monteith’s death that I haven’t really been in the mood to read since the announcement was made on Sunday morning. I don’t know what that says about me, but there you have it. I think the reason I was so floored by his death was that he wasn’t that much older than me. At 31, he was only 4 years older than me. It always hits very close to home when someone close to my age–even someone I’ve never even met–dies. I guess it is a facing one’s own mortality thing.
Anyway, I finally started a new book this evening–Fatal Affair by Marie Force, which I got for free from Amazon through Book Bub sometime last month. I’m about 12% done according to my kindle, and so far I really like it. Let’s see if that lasts. After that, I will probably start A Lady By Midnight by Tessa Dare, the third book in the Spindle Cove Series (I will be reviewing the first two books soon–as soon as I’ve gotten my thoughts in order). If not that book, I might go for the newest Victoria Dahl or a re-read of something else–maybe Birthright or The Villa by Nora Roberts. I am definitely not short on reading materials. However, I am not sure how much reading I will be able to get done in the next few days; my dad is coming to town on Thursday and then we’ve got a family wedding on Friday (talk about facing my mortality: a cousin, who is the same age as I am is getting married–when did I get old?).
