This and That

I slept for four hours today. Of course, since I stayed up until after one last night and got up at six to go to the rink this morning, I really needed it. Now my whole day is off and the article due today is still only half finished. Gah.

I finished Jill Monroe's book, Sharing the Darkness, last night. She is a fab writer.Great tightly written story too.

Ummm what else. In a fevered pitch to get ready for competition on Sat. Tomorrow she will practice from 7 to 11 and then we will run to the bank so she can cash her check and get all the glitter stuff she needs. Then I drop her back off the rink for a little R&R with her friends and BF and will drive my son and a friend of his to a concert. (about an hour south of us) Will hang out at the inlaws who live right down the street from the concert hall. Will wait for call pick them up and take them home. The next morning, I get up and have to have my dd to the competition by eight am. (About an hour north of us.) Will be there ALL day. From 8am to 5:15. UGH! Will find a restaurant with many drinkies.

Sunday I rest. Sorta.

Am looking for another book to read. Going to hit the bookstore sometime this weekend for some good YA. Any ideas? I want to get Twilight. What else?

My goddaughter just finished reading Twilight, and she loved it. *g* I wanted to ask her to lend it to me, but I've got...uh...about 15 books in my TBR pile.

Sorry. No suggestions for YA books. The only ones I read are Harry Potter, and only because they're the younger version of my own genre, and I hope to catch those readers as they grow up.

But, I hear you on the sleep issue. My typical schedule (this year. I'm hoping for a change in a couple of months) has me staying up until 12:30 am or so to write, asleep by 1, and up at 6:30. Five days a week. I'm exhausted.

Glad you got some sleep, and I'm sure it was much deserved.

I didn't care for Twilight.

Get anything by Scott Westerfeld, Justine Larbalestier's new series, anything by Holly bLack, Speak, Elsewhere, Teach Me, A Great and Terrible Beauty, Sticky Fingers by Nic Burnham...

Or if you are in the mood for something lighter, go for one of the Simon Pulse romantic comedies (you can recognize them by the cartoon covers), or Plan B by Jenny O'Connell.

Hey, cool. I'm so glad you liked it. And thanks for the nice words - you made my day!
