I have been horribly sick for the last two weeks which is why there have been no posts. I'm starting to feel better and as such started to read again too. I couldn't concentrate long enough to be able to read! Thank goodness that part of my illness is over....
Right now I'm in the middle of reading The Iron Daughter. It's pretty good although there are some things that make the story drag. I'm not that interested in the details of characters that have no bearing on the plot. For instance there is a battle against a monster where I'm at in the book and there is a lot of detail about creatures fighting it but no one pertinent to the plot. Finally the creature ends up after the main character and that's when it gets interesting. But the author puts a lot of these little details in that I just don't care about and don't seem to move the story forward all that fast. I'm much more fond of the Bitter Frost series with Faeries. The author doesn't give as much detail and moves the plot along very smoothly. But don't get me wrong, I am enjoying the book and completely swept up by the story. I just skip more than I read sometimes.
I got another book called "A Discovery of Witches" that sounds fantastic and I'll be reading that next I think. The cover caught my eye and I do have good experience judging a book by its cover art. And after reading the synopsis, it sounds like it could be decent.
I'm getting pretty excited right now. Our anniversary trip is only weeks away and we will be taking a train to Savannah. I've never been on one and we'll be checking our bags so we can move about to the food car or just to stretch our legs. We'll get in to Savannah and check into the hotel before heading to our favorite pub that has the BEST ruebens I have EVER had!!! We'll spend a day and a half there and then fly to Texas for 4 days to visit with my husbands family.
Hopefully after we get home I'll be able to pick up my new computer. I'm SO happy about that. I'll have a huge monitor and great graphics so City of Heroes will look AMAZING! I'll be able to use the new Ultra Mode they introduced to see the extreme detail they have worked so hard towards for 7 years now. They have some amazing end game (not to be confused with end of THE game!) content that will be released every couple months. They also just released a teaser trailer showing the new animal costume pack they are releasing! Tiger, Leopard, Lion, Wolf, and Eagle heads, tails, and feet plus various skins will be part of it. I'm getting this the second it's out. My Kitty Norville can finally have a true werewolf form. Plus they are adding a special run power that will let a character run on all fours!!! It looks AMAZING! I hope some of this brings even more people back than the recent stuff already has. I haven't seen the servers this full since before they upgraded to larger servers!
Ta ta for now!!
