Bone Dressing by Michelle I. Brooks

Bone DressingBone Dressing by Michelle I. Brooks

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Making my way through this novel, I found it was a decent story. I was a bit torn on how to rate it, as it did confuse me a bit, but it is definitely a book worth reading.

Seeing as how it is part of a series, I can understand why there would be items that confused me in the process of making my way through it. That being said, (and no I won't go into detail of what confused me. You will just have to read the book...) I would recommend the novel to just about anyone. Most of the characters are very well developed. There was only one or two that seemed to have been a bit vague (not by their description but their actions and personality) but I assume will build and grow throughout the series.

Brooks has a great imagination and it shows in her work. The imagery she spells out makes it easy to visualize the scenes in the book. Everything Syd sees is clear and vibrant and well thought out.  
The only thing that really drove me a bit batty throughout the reading was the fact that Syd (main character) uses so many metaphors that I wanted to bop her upside the head and tell her to grow up a bit. Of course, as the book progresses, this does seem to occur less often as she does grow as a character.

All-in-all, it is worth a read.

God Bless You, Mr. RosewaterGod Bless You, Mr. Rosewater by Kurt Vonnegut
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I've always been a huge fan of Vonnegut, ever since reading Cat's Cradle in elementary school. Each time I read a book of his, it reaffirms my love for his style. This book flows so nicely and kept me curious as to how it would end, all the way until I reached it. I will be sad when the day comes when I've read all his novels and there are no more to follow...

The Queen of Lazy...

So lately (for like a year or more) I've been feeling extremely lazy and unorganized. I haven't gotten any writing done, my home is a disaster and while my life has been going so wonderfully, I am feeling the need to try and get myself back on track. So here goes...

4 Weeks to a More Organized Home

I started this today and plan to push my way through it until the end of the month and see if I can get back into the swing of things.

I'm planning on pulling out BtKH and getting back to work on it. I know that there are some fans out there waiting patiently for it. Thanks for waiting and I hope that I can get it to you in the relatively near future!
