Now, as for the Black Eyed Peas - I've always enjoyed them as a group - not every single song, but love their faster stuff. However, I can't say that I like eating black eyed peas (hahaha- sorry, couldn't help it.....I grew up listening to bad puns)
That's it for the music - I can only handle downloading two videos tonight. Everytime I put downloaded the video and then tried to write something, the internet would stop working and I would lose the video and the previously written paragraph. Hell, I must have written and re-written the Katy Perry blurb about five times, the Black Eyed Peas at least two! yep - and I STILL left in that horrible pun. Mwhahaha
And Now - Back to bookish subjects...
I found Phoenix Rising, the new release by Pip Ballantine and Tee Morris. I couldn't find an excerpt anywhere, but I did find the book series website. There will be more novels - Ministry of Peculiar Occurences. This is Steampunk. I like the cover, but I don't like the look of the cover model, or her clothes. It comes across as almost....crude and harsh at the same time. And I don't like that I also sound like an old prude, but that's how the cover comes across to me. It's the pose with the clothes....and the cover model looks... (shudders)
At least she has cool gadgets and weapons on her...maybe that's the idea of the pose...no. The rest of the cover was cool. I like the portrayal of the weapons, the steampund aura and the little curlycues at the corners...
Happily, I also found a trade ppb copy of Bleeding Violet by Dia Reeves, a book I've been coveting for a long time. I thought I would never find it in ppb - and couldn't really bring myself to buy it in hardback without knowing the writer's style...with hardback prices, I want to know that I'm going to love a book before shelling out h/b prices for a novel. This cover is pretty cool = the color, the fabric (even though it's been done quite a bit in YA covers) Looking forward to reading this, though I'm not sure when. I've been putting off reading a lot of my favorite writers' books and I have a bad feeling that I've actually LOST some books. How's that for feeling bookishly out of control? Update - I started reading this - couldn't help it, it jumped in my hands in the morning and opened up to page one...I've been reading it ever since. This character is weird and fascinating.

You will not throw books. If you prove yourself worthy I will let you pet me, and I may even come sit on your lap. In the meantime I am watching you.
