I voted. Only saw one long line and so I settled in with my book. Then I heard a lady ahead of me wish her name started with a letter before K. When I asked why, she pointed to the line I should have been in. It had TWO people. So, I got in and out fast this morning. My little, blue vote won’t sway my state–but I still have a voice and that feels wonderful!
So, what do I do when I’m suffering from election nerves? Apparently, I buy books. I didn’t buy my normal amount of books this year. Sad, I know, but remember, my job went away. However, in the last month, I think my election nerves helped me make up for it. Here is a list of books I’ve recently purchased. Now… I’m going to have to be good. At least a little while. 😉
So, first, two research books about Vikings and Norse Mythology.
The Vikings by Jonathan Clements
Then, I went crazy on fiction.
Jenna Black’s The Devil Inside (Fellow Miriam client and all around nice lady–we share a lot in common when it comes to tenacity in this biz. )
Anne Frasier’s Pale Immortal ( I linked to her site instead of Amazon because this was the only one I had to order from an outside party through Amazon! But I wanted to start in the beginning and I’ve already devoured it. In fact, I loved it so much, I will be ordering the rest of the series! And her other books as well. )
Malena Lott’s Dating da Vinci (This one sounds so good! Going to Malena’s ladies night out bash this week!)
Colleen Gleason’s The Rest Falls Away (I’ve come to really like this author on Twitter, so I’m looking forward to this book–the reviews on this and later books in the series are fantastic!)
Devon Monk’s Magic to the Bone (TODAY IS DEVON’S RELEASE DAY!!!!! Fellow Miriam client and I AM SO EXCITED about this one–fun to see my critique partner’s name in the quote on the cover, too! Rachel raved about this book, so get yourself a copy this week!)
Ann Aguirre’s Grimspace (I’ve wanted this forever–can’t believe I’m just now buying.)
Cherie Priest’s Four and Twenty Blackbirds (Currently reading this one–wonderful, lush, southern Gothic setting. Feels like I’m there!)
Neal Asher’s Gridlinked (I know nothing about this author–the book just sounded cool.)
I also bought a couple of books from Apex Book Company .
Matt Wallace’s The Next Fix (Loved something I read in the description. “If you like a chaser of tech with your horror, humor with your darkness, and beauty with your grit, The Next Fix is your next high.”)
Gratia Placenti For the Sake of Pleasing Edited by Jason Sizemore and Gill Ainsworth (Collection of short fiction by great authors!)
