As If You Never Left Me By Elizabeth Jewell

I mentioned I was reading it but forgot to blog on finishing it.

I really liked this book. I liked the premise, and the characters really grabbed me. It had humor, which I love in a book. The conflict was well resolved.

I think it ranks just below Scott Carpenter's and Sahara Kelly's stories as my favorite of the Ellora's Cave books I got.

I just started Wolf Tales by Kate Douglas. Whoa boy, not even done with the first chapter and it's steamy. I'll have to post a link to the cover when I blog on finishing it. Love the cover for this, very hot. And *grins* I have a signed cover flat. I framed it *nods nods nods*.

I'm not sure how I feel on multiple points of view. I think you have to be really really good to pull it off. I read Laurell K. Hamilton who writes in first person. I can't say I've ever felt cheated only knowing Anita's or Merry's POV. I'm going to have to think on that one. And go read more books only in one POV, probably non first person ones too.

May the muses have lots of bubble bath

A recent read.

By Morgan Hawke.
Genre: Contemporary m/m
You can read all about it by clicking above.

This was my first eXasty book. Morgan has a style of writing I forget about until I pick up a new book by her. She writes in single third person. While I’ve personally never found any single POV quite as satisfying, or depth as engaging as multiple POVs, I enjoyed Torrid. Morgan is a very talented writer. And it’s a novella so it was a quick read. It was just what I needed to curb my reading addition to make it through preparation for finals.

You’ll find some great stuff on Morgan’s website~

Her blog is one of the best on the web. I always look forward to her entries.

Until later~

Cross your fingers

I've said that a lot lately dealing with submissions. So thought it would be interesting to research the origins of the phrase.

The cross in pre-Christian times was considered a symbol of unity with spirits connecting at the intersection points.

Originally, in European countries, two people were required to use their index fingers to form the sign, one to make the wish and the other to support it.

The act was simplified so that a person could do it by themself. And further simplified into the phrase, "Cross your fingers," in order to bring about good luck.

May the muses cross their fingers
