SBD but first pretty covers again
I'm reluctant to blog because that would push my covers down. So wait, let me post them again and then get on with blogging.
P of L = MARCH 1
MB = Release... soonish, not sure when.
Okay. SBD. I just listened to most of a John Grisham, The Confession. It was all about the execution of an innocent man. I can't imagine listening to that thing if I had any pro-death penalty leanings. I'd be screaming at the thing the whole time. No! No!
I admit, I figured out what was going to happen, and skipped ahead so maybe I missed the emotional wallop.
It was relentless. The writing was interesting because it wasn't what you're supposed to do. A gazillion POVs, no brilliant prose, clunky, lots to telling (not showing). It all seemed to add up to a style of nonfiction as if he was filling some kind of a report. And that worked for what he was doing -- writing a areyoufuckingkiddingme? screed about the death penalty, at least as it's carried out in Texas.
But now, either something uplifting or junky. It's too February out there and now I want a book without death in it. I'm waiting for the Kim Harrison book--released tomorrow--but I imagine it'll be a big mess too. The last couple have been big swirly messes, but I'm not giving up on them yet. Still too much fun.
Seriously, I want something with more fluff. That'll go on my tombstone: More fluff, dammit!
