So the last week and a half I have been pretty much absent. I had this big team project/presentation that I had to give on Thursday night for my Finance class. Last weekend I spent pretty much every waking moment buried up to my ears in spreadsheets and numbers. Between work this week and putting together the powerpoint for the project, I just haven't had the time to read, let alone update this poor blog.
But now I'm finished! yippee!
In the reading department, I am still working my way through the Kresley Cole book Captain of All Pleasures. It hasn't really been doing the trick for me. Nothing inherently bad about the book, just nothing all that special. It feels somewhat cliched and redux. That said, I did sit down with it for a good hour this morning and now that I'm in the last 3/4s of the book, it seems to be picking up (finally).
I've been looking over the e-books I snagged from Harlequin during their daily freebie giveaway over the holidays. Funny enough, one of the ones that I did read during the time I was working on my finance project was set in New York and the protags were supposed to be big finance execs. haha. It didn't really inspire me to keep studying. I also started one by Hope Tarr called Strokes of Midnight. This one seems promising. The writing is decent anyways and I'm not rolling my eyes after the first few chapters. I feel like categories are so hit or miss. I haven't really read them since my teen years, but I'm trying to dip my toe back into the waters. Sometimes short and sweet is all I have time for.
Watched another episode of Torchwood before bed last night. I don't care if John Barrowman is playing for the other team; I'd do him. He is purty. And although sometimes you want to slap Captain Jack for being such a cocky self-assured bastard, you want to hug him at the same time.
