Long Time No QuackFriday, May 22, 2009 22:38
I am slowly ‘trying’ to dip my toes back into the pond. My internet is still touch and go but I am trying to work with it. Lawson was a doll and let me babysit her laptop for a weekend. So I am down from 1200+ emailsbut still fighting. I am NOT saying don’t send emails… do do do.
I am delighted to see the blog doing well without me, even if the reviews got down way below what I would like. Hopefully we will be back up to 2 a day soonish. Sorry some of them are old. Some of the quacks had to take breaks for this reason and that reason – the books were read and I feel the books still deserve reviews. We will try to mix them in with the ‘hot and happening’, maybe you will find something you missed.
Sandy has been doing a bang up job on the duck chats and we will be adding a Duckie Hour. Something of a quickie interview with a few authors, more info on that coming up. As always there will be Duck Flashes, Ponderings, randomness and all that jazz. IF my net holds up we might even get our template updated, le sigh, wouldn’t that be grand?
Interesting (if overblown) interview at AAR with two Editors at Avon. I posted at AAR, which of course never showed the new owners of AAR were all about getting me fired for being a ‘blogger’ and apart of ‘maili’s clique’ almost from the moment I joined up to review so no shock there. Aww good times.
Any other amusing dust ups I have missed? I did see the ever delightful Bella has crowned herself queen of the internets. She is special.
I have tons of reviews to do. LOVED: The Madness of Lord Ian Mackenzie by Jennifer Ashley, First Comes Marriage by Mary Balogh, Never Love a Lawman by Jo Goodman, Burning Wild By Christine Feehan, Sudden Death by Allison Brennan, Tempted All Night by Liz Carlyle, Hard and Fast by Erin McCarthy
Enjoyed: Rachel and the Hired Gun by Elaine Levine, Then Comes Seduction by Mary Balogh, At Last Comes Love by Mary Balogh, Montanna Creed series by Linda Lael Miller, Led Astray by a Rake by Sara Bennett
Those are just the A+ – C- sitting next to the computer no clue how many I will do or not. I am currently reading Tasting Fear by Shannon McKenna and going back and forth with starting Skin Trade by LKH. And I STILL haven’t decided what I think about Ward’s last book and I have read it twice. Parts I adored, parts I hated and parts just made me go what the fuck.
Soooo what about you? What cha reading? What cha up too?
