|Josephine Wall's Star Ship|
Hubby passed on his cold to James and I so we both have the blahs and have been doing a lot of resting and reading. James cold settled in his throat but fortunately he hasn't been throwing up. Usually when he gets sick we end up spending a good amount of time in the bathroom with him hugging the porcelain goddess and of course he needs his mom during that time. My cold settled in my sinuses and took away most of my energy. I'm glad this all hit us the past week or two, because we are going on vacation a week from now to Seattle. Everyone will be on the mend by then and ready to have fun.
I read Lori Foster's Men who Walked the Edge of Honor series which included "When Your Dare", "Trace of Fever" and "Savor the Danger." Good good books with the more than handsome alpha males and strong female leads. Also Kristin Hannah's "Night Road" which was quite the emotional read about love, loss and forgiveness. I also discovered Lauren Dane and her Chase Brothers series. Love discovering new authors. I'm currently reading independent author Claire Farrell's YA paranormal story Verity on my nook. Love that ROW80 has introduced me to so many new and different authors and I've been slowly reading their stories. Now just need to start reviewing them so you guys can read them too.
I completely failed this week with working on my wip - hard to concentrate with pounding sinuses. (Which is also why there was a lack of commenting on my part) Though I did think about the story a lot, working it out in my mind and since starting to feel better going to put some concentrated effort into this next week. To find out how everyone else is fairing, go here.

Over at 52 books in 52 weeks it is week # 33 and I'm highlighting the latest NPR reader poll of their top 100 picks for Science Fiction and Fantasy books. Surprisingly I've read almost half of them. Click on over and see how many you've read.
