The Good News, the Bad News, the Book News

First, the Good. I sold a bag!! To a total stranger on Etsy! Whoooo!! This really inspires me to get crafting again, and luckily the creative juices have been flowing. Look for new stuff at over at the bag blog in the near future! (some of the won't be for sale, as I have CHRISTMAS to think about!) I have Monday off work and hope to make some serious progress in the Christmas sewing, as well as make up a Brand! New! Bag! that I drew out last weekend.

And now the Bad. Just as I'm starting to feel like a human being that eats again, I got a sinus infection. Booo. The good part of the bad news though, is that I thought up this blog post title days ago, and am already feeling much better. I actually went to the doctor, where they gave me Amoxicillian. Does that stuff really work? No good decongestants or cough medicine though, which I was hoping for.

And for books. I've actually read two books in the last few weeks. Kitty Goes to Washington and Kitty Takes a Holiday by Carrie Vaughn. These are books 2 and 3 in the series that begins with Kitty and the Midnight Hour. Kitty is a werewolf (ha. ha.), the first to come out publicly. She's not an Alpha wolf, she's not always right, she's often unsure of herself. She's very human, for a werewolf. If you can suspend you system of beliefs long enough to believe in these things, the books are very believable. (How's that for a selling point?) No Anita Blake superpowers or Stephanie Plum slapstick or anything, just a nice girl who happens to be a werewolf. The books are getting stronger, and I think with this last one that Vaughn really took a risk and established herself. (In a word, Cormac.) The next one comes out in January.

After finishing Holiday, I zipped over to to read some reviews and see what people thought of it. One of the reviews is a decent review of the book, but ends with this, which surprised me. Do people really think this way?

I do hope the series continues- I'd like to know more about the shaman who comes to save the day. As for the setting, I hope the story takes place somewhere else. I have never been to Colorado, but I don't much care to visit. Seems kinda lonely and small minded, appropriate for this book, but I'm done with it.

She's never been there, but knows she wouldn't like it? Based on a fictional book about WEREWOLVES? You know, I've never met her, but I don't think I care to. She seems kinda small minded...

Up next, a little non-paranormal to cleanse the palate. I started Knocked Up by Rebecca Eckler on Haley-O's recommendation. This does not appear to have much in common with the movie of the same name, regardless of whatever lawsuits are floating around. I am thinking of reading the latest Lisa Kleypas (it's about Cam! Swoon!) once I'm done with this one.

Did I mention I sold a bag??


  1. Hope you feel better soon!

    I'm from Colorado originally and love it! Someone is weird if they don't like Colorado. . .


  2. Yeah, I don't think the movie is ANYTHING like the book! ;) ENJOY!!! And, feel well!!!
