The Devil Flu

I am not an incredibly busy person. My best friend works full time, has two children, entertains guests every Sunday night for dinner, and writes books. To me, she's an incredibly busy person. Still, somehow I've managed to not blog much in the month of May. I could blame it on the house buying stuff, but it's more the fact that the flu is the devil keeping me pinned to the couch. The devil I say.

It exhausts me and sucks out any pieces of creativity and word-putting-together I rely on. It makes me loathe the idea of world building, and even stare at the lap top with disgust. Yes, the very lap top that I usually treasure and hold dear to my heart.

But, as this devil flu has raged through my head, and sinuses, and throat, and limbs, I've clung to a tiny shred of the writerly me. A glimmer of hope. And that is, The Immortal Rules by Julie Kagawa.

Ah, so goooood. I've been wanting to read this book because it's about a kick-ass predator of a girl. And my book is about a kick-ass predator of a girl. :)

I am in no mind to write a review right now, but it's coming. I just had to say that WOW this book was fun and creepy. (I still picture vampire type zombies with milky eyes when I try to go to sleep at night). I also had to say that WOW, I've reached 100 followers. Crazy what happens when your head is pounding and you feel as though you'll never breathe normal again.

So, have a great Memorial Day Weekend everybody!

Have you read The Immortal Rules? If so, what did you think?

What are your plans this weekend?      


  1. I hope you feel better soon! And congrats on the 100 checkpoint.

  2. I hope you feel better soon. This book sounds interesting. Thanks for sharing.

  3. I haven't even heard of this one by Julie Kagawa. Thanks for mentioning it! I've read most of her Iron Fey books, though, and really enjoyed them.

    Hope you're feeling better soon!

    1. Really? I wonder why you haven't heard of this one. Wonder if maybe they aren't doing a big promotional push. Hmmm.

  4. I have been up for a week after ankle surgery - I totally get it. I hope you get feeling better soon and settled - just found your blog - look forward to following you on your journey :)
