next up, urban fantasy

I managed to leave the library with three urban fantasy books yesterday. I found Kim Harrison's latest release, "White Witch, Black Curse," which made me very happy as I thought I might have to buy it in order to read it. I also left with "Embrace the Night" by Karen Chance and "At Grave's End" by Jeaniene Frost.

If that isn't hitting the jackpot, I don't know what is!

The oldest daughter, the Romeo and Juliet reading one, asked for the movie "Shakespeare in Love" which I was also able to find. We will sit down to view it over our three day weekend. She was quite impressed by the number of Academy Awards the movie earned. My fave part is Judi Dench's amazingly short but amazingly crafted portrayal of Queen Elizabeth, for which she won a coveted little golden man.

The wind is blowing and the dark gray clouds are moving quite rapidly across the sky. Not sure if we will see rain this morning, but it looks like a very typical Good Friday outside right now. I hope Easter Sunday is bright and cheerful....this pattern of gloom/sun/gloom/sun needs to be broken.

Enjoy the weekend.

I love Judi :) she is a great actress. The movie you are viewing is a good one, but has slow spots, fyi, good time to pop the corn :)!

Michelle! Hey girl, when does your next book come out?? We watched the movie yesterday and both of my daughters loved it and proclaimed Joseph Fiennes as 'very hot, very very hot!" LOL

Ha-ha! They're right ;]

My next book comes out September 15th... quite a while from now. But I just received the cover and it's fifty kinds of fabulous (I have a temporary one up on my website)!!

I checked out said cover and I give it two enthusiastic thumbs up. I love covers where you don't see a full face; I'd rather use my imagination to fill that 'blank' in as I'm reading the story.

Really?! Thank you!!! I was a little worried that it was yet another headless woman...

I hope you're having a great Monday!
