(Warning: Part of this was written while I was at work, the end was written around 9pm so it may not flow in the best of ways – my apologies.)
This has felt like maybe the longest week ever, which is odd considering I had Monday off for the holiday. Regardless of its lengthiness I’m glad the weekend is finally here.
Despite my aching eyes yesterday I couldn’t help from continuing “The Law of Nines.” (But with my glasses on) There’s no doubt I’m sucked in at this point, just like I was with the Sword of Truth Series. Terry Goodkind has this awesome way of writing his main male characters as strong, but the female lead is always stronger. I like this 😉 My Teagan is totally this way whether it’s evident or not at first because I just love when females are kick ass. Also, major bonus – “The Law of Nines” is linked to the Sword of Truth Series, but the setting is current day – our world, the lead male’s name being Alex Rahl and the mysterious woman’s name being Jax Amnell. And I just read that it’s part of a trilogy AND that he has been signed on for another trilogy of strictly Richard and Kahlan (from the first 11 books of The Sword of Truth Series) novels. I’m so ecstatic I could SQUEE… okay I did. Geez… I’m such a fangirl at times. For those of you who loved Legend of the Seeker on TV, read something of Terry’s, seriously it will be worth your while. I promise! He is the writer who will help me be grounded again, just like he inspired me back then to even write my story. I’m glad I will have finished my reading stint with Terry Goodkind.
Although, I did just buy the following on recommendation and/or because I couldn’t stop myself (Gosh I’m such a sucker for new books; seriously this is the longest addiction I’ve ever held):
“Betwixt” by Tara Smith (thanks Heather (aka edgyauthor) for the suggestion)
“Howl’s Moving Castle” and “Dogsbody” by Diana Wynne Jones (thanks m-stiefvater for the awareness)
“The Overton Window” by Glenn Beck (thanks Glenn for the importance of such a thriller at such a time in US society)
“Infinity: The Chronicles of Nick” by Sherrilyn Kenyon (thanks Amazon for adding to my reading addiction with your suggestions and Target for showing me the physicality of this book last weekend and tempting me with its beauty when I shouldn’t be spending on such luxuries)
Also coming sometime next week because I already pre-ordered it: “The Short Second Story of Bree Tanner” by Stephenie Meyer. I may seriously wait until the release of Eclipse for this because unfortunately I still feel a bit mad at her for lying about writing more for the series. (see THIS POST for explanation)
So that’s it. All I have to say today. I wanted to say how irritating certain people have become to me lately, but it’s not worth entertaining the energy in doing so, so I will let it go. Let’s hope they don’t push the same nerves next week and prompt me to go on a rampage about idiocy and ignorance next week.
Much love to all my LJ friends… you have no idea how much you encourage me. And for once, in a while, I’m looking forward to writing again. As soon as I’m finished with the awesomeness that is “The Law of Nines.”
Peace – Sarah
