  1. Howdy ladies. I haven't abandoned you but I've been limiting my time online to work on current WIP which is progressing slowly but surely. I've been enamored with the Bridgertons the past couple weeks and finished the Julia Quinn Bridgerton series. They are all quite good and will go into the reread pile for another time. Moving forward now with Genevieve Cogman's Plot Hole which I'm enjoying. 馃槝
  2. I'm in a flufferton state of mind and thoroughly enamored with Julia Quinn's Bridgertons. I currently on #6 When He Was Wicked. I haven't been able to get into my space opera Ancestral Night so will set it aside until I'm, Ahem, in a sci fi state of mind. * Grin * The poor Count is also idle but I hope to get back to him soon. Meanwhile he has the Abbe to keep him company. We're coming to the end of Volume one with Chapter 27 according to Project Gutenberg so @Lady Florida. I'm looking forward to your thoughts and spoilers are welcome as I've already read through the readers

  4. Happy Easter to all who celebrate! Sharpen your pens and pencils and get ready to write some poetry, tell a joke or two, or plants some flowers, for April is upon us and with it National Poetry Month, National Humor month, and Lawn and Garden Month. We're pulling up anchor and sailing through a worm hole to the secret world of Irene Winters, a librarian spy in the Invisible Library series by Genevieve Cogman. The library is set in a secret dimension, and locations and time periods vary depending on which door Irene chooses to go through as she hunts for dangerous books. The stories
  5. For my historical fiction read this week, I finally dove into The Duke and I, the first Bridgerton story and thoroughly enjoyed it. Will probably continue to read the series. Also watched the first episode of Bridgerton on Netflix which is equally good.
  6. I'm so sorry Terabith. I stumbled across these the other day and was contemplating it. Complete false advertising as they say the product is made out of titanium alloy metal. You should definitely file a complaint and filed a claim with your credit card company. The website is very deceptive and nowhere on the site does it say the dragons are balloon and need to be inflated. Their policies do state Full refund within 30 days without reason. I would look up how to report fraud in England. Here's some company info I found. Maybe it will help with your claim.
  7. I finished reading Thea Harrison's Elder Races series, (except for the novella's) which I thoroughly enjoyed and want to read again. The setting remind me of the Guild Hunter series in which the main setting is New York and they live in a high tower, but there aren't any angels involved. Dragons, Gryphons, Elves, and Vampyres sets it apart. Dragon Bound Storm's Heart Serpents Kiss Oracle's Moon Lord's Fall The Wicked Kinked Night's Honour Midnight's Kiss Shadow's End Currently reading Elizabeth Bear's space opera Ancestra

  10. Good morning! Books in progress are Count of Monte Cristo, continuing Thea Harrison's Elder series and currently on Night's Honor, and started a sci fi space opera Ancestral Night (#1 White space) by Elizabeth Bear.

  12. Happy Sunday, dear hearts. Today is World Poetry Days so I鈥檒l leave you with a poem by one of my favorite poets. A Prayer In Spring By Robert Frost (March 26, 1874) Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today; And give us not to think so far away As the uncertain harvest; keep us here All simply in the springing of the year. Oh, give us pleasure in the orchard white, Like nothing else by day, like ghosts by night; And make us happy in the happy bees The swarm dilating round the perfect trees. And make us happy in the darting bir
  13. I am scheduled for this Saturday. California tier which includes those with medical issues that would put them at risk. My doctor decided I qualified so getting the shots.
  14. @Mothersweets Beautiful puzzle. Have fun putting it together @KareniOh my goodness, those covers. Giggling all the way through. The cover with Brad Pitt. Snort! My buying ban is officially over. I'm there. Downloaded it last night and foresee getting and reading the rest of the series as Serpent's Kiss was great. I totally enjoyed seeing Carling come alive and enjoyed the relationship between she and Rune. My doctor emailed and said I qualified to get the Moderna Covid Vaccine so scheduled for Saturday to get the first one. I have a low tolerance for drugs of an
  15. You are definitely more braver than me. I personally wouldn't go to the mountains and hike by myself. I'd be too nervous to relax. However I would on a beach where I can be by myself, but still be safe. Or a small town to wander through or maybe by a lake.
