I'm going to be honest. I've had a shitty day. I woke up at 5:30 a.m. with The Migraine From Hell, and the usual fix-it of eating 4 ibuprofen and going back to bed with a cool washcloth over my forehead and eyes did not work. Finally this evening it's gone away with only a few "pings" here and there, just little love taps from my poor noggin, reminding me of the aching pain I've been in all day.

But, I didn't log on here to whine about The Migraine From Hell. No, I wanted to talk books. If I could, I'd pop Wendy on the head (gently, cuz..ow) for steering me towards the likes of Chelsea Cain. This chica (Chelsea, not Wendy) knows how to freak the bejeezus out of me! Her sociopath character, Gretchen Lowell, is one messed up biotch. Honestly, take any serial killer out there, fictional or real, and multiply that by about 20. And there you have Gretchen. Holy smokes...

I'm still suffering from the occasional slump, but I was finally able to finish reading BORN OF NIGHT by Sherrilyn Kenyon. A review will be up at Romance Reviews Today one day soon, I hope. I just need to, well, I have to write it for that to happen. I know I've mentioned before that I'm not a sci-fi fan, and I totally don't get Star Trek (except for the most recent movie *fanning self*), but this book was enough for me to go ahead and buy the next one in the series, BORN OF SIN. I may yet get the whole Patricia Briggs thing if this keeps up! I thought I was current and happening because I was enjoying the whole Nalini Singh series, or what I've read thus far. ;-)

Well, back to the books. I promised myself I'd read a bit more of yet another review book I have, and then I may spend some time with Gretchen Lowell later on tonight (*shudder*). For those that have read this series, is it just me that's only able to read this book in doses before walking away from it for a couple hours? The scenes with Gretchen and Archie are staggering!

Ummmm, so you're liking it? LOL

I actually thought Heartsick was the tamest of the three books so far - but then I remembered the flashback scenes. Yeah, those are pretty brutal. And creepy. But I didn't have to "walk away" from Heartsick. I literally gulped it down in like two readings.

But I'm twisted like that.

Oh yeah, I'm liking it. It's just gorific in a manner I've not read before. I think I'm heading out today to pick up the 3rd book... ;-)
