Hello to all our wonderful readers! Just wanted to write a brief note letting you all know (since I have no doubt you’ve been anxiously refreshing the website wondering where I might be) that I’ve returned from my rather unexpected hiatus. If you follow us on twitter (me: @ellen4YA Judith: @iloveyafiction) you might have noticed us joking about my computer dying. Well here’s the honest to goodness truth: not a few hours after I finished my last review I was drinking some wine, playing an online jigsaw puzzle (love them) and watching Game of Thrones. I lifted my head to yell at Theon Greyjoy (ASSHAT extraordinare) and when I look back down my computer screen is grey, and then just dies. So the next day I take it to my new bffs at Best Buy who tell me my hard drive is “corrupt” and there’s no getting back any of the stuff saved on my computer. They take it, tell me it’s fixed, but when I go to pick it up am informed something was “rattling around” and so now they have to replace my motherboard. But it’s a story with a happy ending because I FINALLY have my computer back and am ready to do some book reviewing!
Oh, and on a related note, I’m never EVER EVER EVER reviewing another book about angels. I just got my computer back, I can’t risk a negative angel review taking it all away again! (What, I’m Irish Catholic, we’re seriously superstitious.) I even joked with Judith that we might have to start a new area of the blog just for when I start a book but then there are angels involved and I have to put it down. Instead of DNF it would be TBA (There Be Angels) or something similar.
ANYWAY. I also thought I’d make up a list of the books I plan to review in the coming weeks. They probably won’t come in this order since I tend to review whatever I’ve just finished and I’m not very good at sticking to my own plans.
1. Rematch (The Vortex Series) by Janine Caldwell
2. The Timberwolves Series by Tammy Blackwell (hey! Those two last names are so similar!)
3. The Crimson Soul sequel by Tim Cody
4. The Covenant series by JL Armentrout
5. My own review of Easy by Tammara Webber
6. Other stuff I can’t think of right now.
7. Those frigging Christopher Pike books I’ve been planning to read/review for months. I need to get my act together!
Well there it is. Let’s hope nothing goes wrong this time and you can all enjoy my wonderful witticisms and deep thoughts about YA (see, this is why I need that sarcasm font).
