I suck.

Not in a hemovorous sort of way, either. More in a “can you believe how long it’s been since I posted on my website” sort of way. I plead parenthood, two active pseudonyms (Damn you, Cortez, and your Teutonic success!) plus there was this terrible natural disaster during an alien invasion while I was very sick and it wasn’t my fault.

All right. Let’s see if I can update my general progre...

“I've got a bad case of the 3:00 am guilts - you know, when you lie in bed awake and replay all those things you didn't do right? Because, as we all know, nothing solves insomnia like a nice warm glass of regret, depression and self-loathing.”

“I look over at him. He stares straight ahead.
"So," I say. "Golem, huh?"
"I prefer the term 'Mineral-American.”

“Yeah? Feels like we just traded one set of rumors for another. We still have no idea where he is, what his plans are, or even what he looks like."
Patience, dear girl, patience."
Easy for you to say. You're immortal.”

Polls

Time to pick our next series read. There were a lot of ones nominated, so in order to get a consensus we will do this poll in 2 steps. I will put all of the ones nominated in the first poll for one week, the top 6, will move on to a the final poll, for another week.

My hopes in doing this is because we are a small group I don't want to end up with a lot of ties as there have been great books nominated. :)

Only the first book is listed for the poll, but we will be reading the first 3 in the series.
