- Check out Apocalypse Later: Why Dystopian Novels Speak To Us by Josh Corman.
- This week I started and "quickly" abandoned Winter's Tale by Mark Helprin. I felt like I was chewing scenery and not make progress in the book and then suddenly after about 250 pages the "main" characters are gone! The book is 700 pages long. WTH! There's a right way and a wrong way for an author to "disappear" a character or characters. Book Riot compiled a list about this very topic recently: How to Kill Off Characters.
- My picture of the week! It's finally spring in Iowa and I grilled out twice last week. TWICE!!
- I realized last week I failed to mention that my friend, Erin, and I met 3 authors at Chi-Fi 0! And of course, I came away with the following books:
- Watching: The West Wing Season 2, Supernatural Season 2, The Big Bang Theory Season 7, Suburgatory Season 1
- Read or Reading: Through Time: An Unauthorised and Unofficial History of Doctor Who by Andrew Cartmel. Dorothy Must Die by Danielle Paige.
