I want a dragon

Okay, today is supposed to be my first day fully back at work. Except sitting within arms reach is Naomi Novik's His Majesty's Dragon, which I'm two thirds of the way through. You're thinking it can't be that good if I put it down. Except that I started at 11pm last night, vowing to read "only a few pages" and read 228 before collapsing. This book is GOOD. Very good. I can't wait to finish it. But now I have to go hide it so I'll do some work. I'll do a proper review after I've finished (which will probably end up being in a few hours given my self control).

I've already finished reading Karina Bliss's Mr Imperfect. Loved it. Go buy it if you want a to-die-for hero as well as a wonderful and honest story. Christian and Kezia have a past but they manage to talk about it and understand what went wrong. The minor characters were also great - interesting and funny without taking over the story. A big thumbs-up from me. (And oh yeah - it was hot *g*).

In other news, more awesome reviews are coming in for Slave to Sensation, which is so exciting. The release is less than a month away now and I feel like a little kid hopping up and down saying, "Are we there yet?"

The newest review came from Romance Junkies. The reviewer said that: "Nalini Singh has penned an incredible world where fire and ice mix to create an unforgettable sensual eruption. SLAVE TO SENSATION is a volcanic start to a new series that’ll leave you craving for...more." (Squee!!)

And in the most exciting news of all, I might actually get broadband today. Please, please, please...pretty please...

What a great review! Can't wait to get my copy of Slave to Sensation.

(But I'm still not picking up the stars... sigh!)

Great review. I went back to work Monday too. The summer just went way to fast. But I love being back in my library surrounded by books. Keeps me motivated to write my own.

Christina - I don't know why you can't see the stars. :( What browser are you using? Maybe I can ask Gabrielle to see if it's something we can fix.

Hey Lyric - I loved, loved working in the library! You're right, it's such a great motivator.

Congrats on the great review, Nalini! I'll cross my fingers for the broadband. There's nothing worse than slow internet.

*crossing fingers for the broadband*

My internet's back to normal (it was slow for a week or so) and so you should get broadband today too. Synchronicity or something. Or just because I Say So. LOL!
