i love orange juice. i can't guzzle it anymore - have you ever looked at the carbs on OJ?? eep! - but i buy a little jug of it & take "shots" now & then. : ) it's just so bright & cheery-tasting. well, when it's the right kind. there are lots of orange "juice-like-drinks" out there, ya know? and they have their place - who doesn't like a good swig of sunny d now & again? and that concentrate stuff?! ah, the memories. lol but, for me, nothing beats the full flavor and happy feeling of simply orange. it's just my favorite OJ. so i thought i'd share. : )
today i tried to read American Vampire, but i didn't like it. it was an interesting story & well written, but it just wasn't the vampire story for me. idk if i've mentioned i'm a little picky about my vampires? i know the sookie stackhouse books are beloved by many, but no thank you. anne rice? nope. you know my vampire loves - lynsay sands, kerrelyn sparks - and sherrilyn kenyon, except i don't really think of her dark-hunter books as "vampire" books. michele bardsley's broken heart vampires are good. and of course, i ADORE the way amanda ashley writes vampires! i love the fact that each author (even the ones i don't like) takes this well-known supernatural creature type and makes it their own. i love that there is so much variety of vampire lore, because it means that there is something for everyone!
and i am still on pins & needles waiting for my books. i hope they all make it here friday. or, you know, they could get here tomorrow. i'd be super okay with that. LOL (i'm not complaining - i know that if i deigned to use an e-reader i could have them all yesterday!)
my next book is going to be The Duchess's Next Husband by a super sweet author, Terri Brisbin. and if i finish it before my books get here, after that will - i think - be a julia quinn.
um. what else? probably nothing you'd like to read about. *laugh* not that you wanted to read about OJ & vampire books, but you did, so thanks!
i had some other thoughts swirling around yesterday, but i never did get them written out, and now i've mostly forgotten them (well, not the thoughts, but how i wanted to present them) and i'm hungry so i think i'll make some pasta & meatballs & cream sauce, and also my computer says it needs to charge. so! i hope your camel day was fantastic & stuff! : )
