Bookworm Report, May 2007

My allergies have kicked into high gear. I'm stuffy and sound like a frog. But I've been baking alot lately, and found some great new recipes. It's been nice to have a break from reviews, but I'll probably start again next month. I kinda miss it.

And I'm posting at Starting Write Now. Today's post -- My love of Series Characters.

We just went through a bad allergy attack her with sneezes, sniffles and coughs. ugh.

I actually have a busy June, but around all it I hope to write too!

Prep by Curtis Sittenfeld was really good. Introspective, but good. I could understand why marketing had a difficult time with it.

Prep by Jake Coburn was so-so good. It was too short and had a rather anticlimactic ending.

I'm feeling okay, except my nose is plugged. And I sound weird. But I'm not exhausted like a cold makes me. There is some good in the world :)
