Hello, world! It’s WiP Wednesday (or in my case, writing Wednesday. Or, not writing Wednesday…whichever fits) again! I don’t have a WiP this week… I promised myself I’d take a break through the end of March and start planning out something new on April 1. I’ve been mulling and thinking over characters and story lines, though, and how I’m going to put things together. I still don’t have a complete story in my head, which is kind of scary because that’s where I sat with Caged Bird for 2 years before I gave up. I’m hoping this new venture turns into something and doesn’t go over like a lead balloon. I spent last weekend in New York, which was, in words that don’t even begin to describe the experience, AMAZING. I had a blast from the time the plane landed until I arrived at the airport to leave.

It’s Friday again, and time for another #FridayReads! Every Friday, we booklovers chat it up about what we’re reading. Here’s my list: Water for Elephants, by Sara Gruen – Sad to say, I’m not enjoying this book. Actually I’m not enjoying the audio book. I have the physical book and I’ll probably switch to that. The audio-book is always a matter of a compelling story that I can get lost in and an excellent narrator. I DO NOT like the narrator for this book and I find I just don’t care about the main character quite yet. I’ll pick up the eBook version this week where I left off. Damage, by John Lescroart- Another new book I started but have only read a page, so far. I LOVE Lescroart so I’m not worried about this book at all. Hoping to spend most of my weekend buried in this one. Roseflower Creek, by Jackie Lee […]
This book was a slow start for me, but once it got going, it was hard to put down. I was almost late for work one morning, because I had started reading and couldn’t stop. I literally sat down 4 hours ago to finish it, because I just couldn’t stand not knowing what happened anymore. The Help is a riveting, entertaining first novel– I think Ms. Stockett should be quite proud of herself.
