Okay, so on New Years Eve I decided to treat myself, I went into the local bookshop looking for the latest Marian Keyes book, I wanted to totally escape reality, be entertained and feel alive! But it was sold out…..I looked for something else, I couldn’t find anything suitable, I like to escape into Chic Lit every now and again, but I am fussy. I was about to give up, buy some crappy gossip magazines in the newsagent (they are verboten in my house, I feel so dirty when I read them). On the way out of the shop I saw a huge book, picture of a woman’s pout with blood dripping, I picked it up, Trueblood trilogy, (as see on HBO- means nothing to me, don’t really do tv) 17 yoyos! SOLD!
I brought my book home, a bit sheepishly showed it to my partner, I read all the Anne Rice books when I was young, I love the eroticism of the “other” but I see it as a childish indulgence so he was suprised to see me reading this. But read it I did! I have flown through the first two books, I only have a couple of pages in the third book… I highly recommend them, if you are feeling lost, bogged down in the problems in your life, tired waiting for the Visa bill. It’s total fiction, but it’s brilliant, easy to read, lots of wonderful supernatural beings! I really love it! It has been my life line over christmas. My partner is delighted when I say I need to be alone to read my book because when he sees me after that I am in great form, I’ve forgotten about my worries!
And there are loads of books in the series! I am gonna finish the third book today, I bought the Marian Keyes book and the fourth book in the series, so I am gonna read the Marian Keyes book next, my dreams need a bit of a break, I’m dreaming sexy dreams about the undead, but in my dreams the undead are my friends!!! So I need a bit of a Chick Lit period! I’m starting to believe Vampires might exist…..
