Both of them are very innocent but determined. Sybil never seems to feel she's in over her head whens he commits to becoming a nurse and forges ahead when it's difficult, so I get the feeling that, as a middle-class housewife in Dublin, she was the same way. Tom is an idealist and he's surprised when the tzar's family is shot and later when that family's house is burned in Dublin and he has to run and leave Sybil behind. He is almost more naive than Sybil and needs her strength. She needs his independence to break free of the suffocating life she's been born to. I would have loved to see a spin off show of their lives in Dublin.

Ask me next week and it might be Ronan Dex and Jennifer Keller on Stargate Atlantis or Georgianna and Darcy from Rhys Bowen's Royal Spyness series (though that might not be until summer because I think that's when the next book is due.)(less)

I like to get in a minimum word count every day and if I don't I'm more frustrated than if I have to delete and start over, so fighting is the best of bad options.(less)

Video Friday: Send Me an Angel

There are a ton of songs (okay, a few), but this is the one I was thinking of. I love the haunting chorus.

Moments of brilliance in an insipid sea of teenage hormones, undramatic drama, and unfunny comedy. The dinner at the aliens' house was amazing and not to be read )or remembered) while eating.

I feel like this was a bait and switch. Not that the book was terrible. It had some logic problems (low gravity is not the same as flying and when you pour hot water into a single-use water bottle the plastic will melt), but the writing was fine. Whe ...more

“No. Not another dime.” The man at the table said into the phone. “The sucker bank is closed.” Sucker bank. Good one. Alex gestured at the bare table, nothing but the daisy in the little vase in the center and a half empty sugar caddy.”
Christa Maurice, Waiting For A Girl Like You

“The plate looked like five-star quality. Mushroom sauce trailed artfully over a thick, juicy steak. The baked potato should have been on the cover of a magazine. The crisp, golden skin split to allow a perfect square of rich yellow butter to melt into the fluffy mash with a sprinkling of fresh chives over top. The herbs had been clipped just this morning from the garden Paul maintained in his backyard. The salad balanced in such a perfect tower that Alex wasn’t sure she’d get it to the table without having it topple over. A crystal wine glass filled with jewel-toned red wine completed the meal.”

I don't normally set a reading goal for the year. Some years I read a lot, some not as much. But I have a 3 page wishlist for the library!
