How I thought I’d have the time and energy after an intense month of holidays to write the reviews/essays which these books deserve is currently beyond me. Wishful thinking perhaps.
Short version? Get your hands on any that interest you, it may surprise you, but I highly recommend those that I gave five stars. ;)
I hope very soon to get back into the public writing habit. While no one missed me, I have missed writing both here and privately.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to go spin some on my new spindle. It needs a name, any suggestions?

What a good idea, to name the spindle. Hmmm. Have to name mine, too.

Squeaky got named. I’ve not named the other spindles. Hmm… I’ll take a family photo shoot and see what happens. This is the first one that asked to be named… or maybe I just learned how to listen.
So, you probably don’t want a longer book list now, huh? So *don’t* read the Obsidian Trilogy (Mercedes Lackey and James Mallory) or the following 2/3 of a trilogy (book 2 was published last month, I just got and finished it from the library).
On the other hand, if you have some time to dig into a few good books, those would be top on my list of current recommendations :) But now I have to wait for #3. I haven’t even been able to find an update on when it should be written, although there are some good cliff hanger bits. And the website (Mercedes Lackey’s) doesn’t look like it’s been touched *at all* since last year – and the books out/coming looks 3 (!) years old.
