I had a small family upset late Friday night. The book review and bookstore feature will be posted as soon as I have time. Sorry.
There will be a grand total of
30 28 posts before this celebration is over with. I may just fall down dead at the end.
We had perfect weather for July 4th and I spent my evening at a BBQ with friends. One of who is heavily pregnant with her second child and getting induced this morning. By now, she should have popped out a healthy baby boy. I need to go buy a teddy bear before going over to see him this weekend.
What am I reading?
Finished: 45 Pounds by K.A. Barson
Reading Now: The Girl Who Chased the Moon by Sarah Addison Allen
What Next: The Lavender Garden by Riley Lucinda
are+adam+and+ronan+from+the+raven+boys+gay – This is the first I’ve heard of any such thing. But now that you mention it, I can kind of see Adam being gay. He’s be drawn to Gansey, because when isn’t he, but I could see being homosexual part of the problem he has with his abusive father. I didn’t get the vibe from Ronan.
I’m also getting a lot more hits for gay erotica. Apparently I need to do more reviews of that genre.
