I haven't finished reading the Codas at the end of the book (read Coda I, enjoyed it well enough), but that's okay, because I mostly just want to review the meat of the book, the actual story of Redshirts.

As someone who makes her living off writing, I don't have a lot of time for leisure reading, like maybe a new book squeezed in every 2-3 months. So when I do make the time for a fresh story, I'm hoping it will be good. I'm praying it'll be worth my t...more

“Not everyone can look past an insult and continue to work with the person who slights them”
Jean Johnson

“Kodan: “I had the good sense to win the hand of a woman as smart and kind as she is beautiful. If not more so.”

Tava: “You mean you had the wit to blackmail me into following you home, where you promptly stole my heart,” she teased.

Kodan: “That, too,” he agreed. “But I didn’t steal your heart. I merely exchanged it for mine.”
Jean Johnson, Shifting Plains

“He knew this could turn out to be a very dangerous ploy if it backfired, but he also knew he had his best friend firmly on his side. If nothing else, he knew he could let her take all the blame and she’d do it. He’d owe her majorly — what else were best friends for but blackmail opportunities and owing giant favors, anyway — but she’d do it.”
Jean Johnson, Bedtime Stories: A Collection of Erotic Fairy Tales

Jean Johnson Heheh, my hair's actually pretty tame now, back to its normal light brown, more or less. The polkadots were, hmm...a good 3-4 years ago? As for the rest of me, busy busy busy zomg busy at the moment with multiple overlapping deadline, eek! But I'm enjoying the work. Ooh, relationship with your best friend? :-) Here's hoping that works out, because those are the best kinds. You already know each other's dirty secrets and annoying/bad habits, yet you still enjoy each other's company...only now more so. *grin*

Erin I am good! I'm in college now, just got into a relationship with my best friend 5 days ago :) Things are going well for me, and I have been loaning out the Sons of Destiny books to all my friends! How about you? How are things? Still have a crazy hairdo? For some reason, I remember you saying you had polka dots in your hair.
