Poor Dresden
Just finished Turn Coat by Jim Butcher.

It took me awhile to finish this, actually. The beginning was a bit slow, but the second half was very well done and made me okay with the first portion.


*Sigh* I'm not happy about Luccio, but yet I found it a compelling way to go about it, so I forgave Butcher.

Of course, this might be due to Murphy actually telling Dresden that she loved him... even if it wasn't meant the way I smugly took it.

I do find it puzzling how Butcher can make me ship different girls with Harry and yet I still have that overall Murphy/Harry Super OTP thing going. Bizarre, I tell you!


I'm not buying Kim Harrison's hardcover until after the move. Heck, I brought Butcher's book to work with me so I could get that sucker packed after finishing it! I don't need more to move. Who knows, maybe my waiting so long for it will make the price of the HC cheaper! *Crosses fingers*

I think you are going to hate White Witch, Black Curse with a burning passion, so feel free to let it wait for quite a while.

You really have me wary about this book. >_>

Let's just say that I am significantly less than pleased with recent romantic developments.

Okay, I couldn't help myself! I tried, I really did! But I went to amazon.com and checked out a couple of reviews (and yes, spoiled myself).

And gods, I'm so glad I did.

WTF?!?

Okay, wow, the swimmer guy would've been better than THAT. >_> <_< And Trent only has one scene? ... Screw this book! Harrison is officially on probation. You just let me know when she starts writing sane again, okay?

Yeah, that's pretty much how I felt about the whole thing. Seriously, what the shit. It makes me wish she'd just drop the damn romance angle and get on with the plot. And I -like- a good romance. It's just... seriously, what the crap. Out of NOWHERE.

I'd also like to note, for the record, that Listens-to-Wind needs to cut loose more often. That was pretty sweet.

I totally agree. That was very awesome. ^^
