It has been a slow, boring week for me, as I am just now recovering from a cold sore. I haven't written any fiction lately, but I hope to find a few minutes to write (besides from writing reviews and blog posts) this weekend. I have tons of books to review, so I have made myself a reading schedule for the next month.
I picked up three books from the Walmart for $2.95 each. They are Night School by Mari Mancusi; He Is Legend edited by Christopher Conlon; and Sugar and Spice by Lauren Conrad.
Books in the mail this week were: Beyond Hope's Valley by Tricia Goyer; A Sister's Forgiveness by Anna Schmidt; The Messenger by Siri Mitchell; Crazy Dangerous by Andrew Klavan; and How to Apologize to Your Woman by Karen Field Bolek.
I bought 4 Film Favorites: Draculas (featuring: Horror of Dracula; Dracula Has Risen From the Grave; Taste the Blood of Dracula; and Dracula A.D. 1972) a few days ago, but I haven't had time to watch any of them. Last weekend, I watched The Adventures of Tintin, which was surprisingly entertaining. I'll post a more depth review on it next month.
Question of the Week: Have you ever had a character that disappointed you? One that you fell in love with and then "broke-up" with later on in either the series or stand-alone book? Tell us about him or her.
My Answer: I would have to say Anita Blake from the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter series by Laurell K. Hamilton. In the early books she was a tough-ass necromancer, which she still is, but I have started to dislike the character and the series. The later books have too many sex scenes that adds nothing to the plot.
