The time is 11p.m. while I'm typing this. I can't sleep. It's Saturday, so there's no reason for me to go to bed early. And there's nothing interesting to watch on TV. So what did I do? I ended up doing my NaNo, but it's no fun when you are running out of ideas and there are times that I just want to kill off the hero, haha... but of course my story will not go on if I do that, so I let him live. Nah... I'm just kidding. I'm in my rambling state because I'm behind my target so please excuse me. Blah Blah Blah...

Another thing is, the power supply of our desktop computer has blown this morning when the hubs was about to download some pictures (fortunately the circuit breaker tripped in time to cut off the supply), so that means we can't use the desktop but at least we have a laptop around. (Ah... at least my NaNo will be saved, so I better quit rambling.)

Anyway, back to my favourite topic: Books! Here are the books which I have bought recently:

The Six Sacred Stones by Matthew Reilly

Ice Storm by Anne Stuart

Sacred Cows by Karen E. Olson

The Almost Moon by Alice Sebold

A Student Of Living Things by Susan Richards Shreve

Heart Stopper by Joy Fielding

Hunting And Gathering by Anna Gavalda

Note: I have been waiting for Matthew Reilly and Anne Stuart's books like for ages, so I was thrilled to find their new releases. And also, because of Wendy's great reviews, I have decided to pick up Sacred Cows and The Almost Moon. Thanks, Wendy! Now I can't wait to read all of these books!

  1. It is still Saturday morning in California and already I want to go take a nap. :-)

    I do hope you will enjoy your books! Looks like you have some good ones there. :-) I am sure you will like Sacred Cows. Almost Moon is one I worry no one will like even though I did. :-S

    Have a good night.

    I am delighted to see you bought Karen's first book, Sacred Cows. I have reviews of her other two books in the series on my blog,, as well. They really are great and I love to see other readers discover them!

    I picked up Sacred Cows after Wendy's review too and I really enjoyed it. I'm trying to find the second book in the series now.
    I read Hunting and Gathering this summer and thought it was cute. Enjoy your new books.

    Hi Bookgirl! I can't wait to read Sacred Cows, and I'm still searching for the second book because most bookstores don't have it. I probably have to check it online.

    Happy reading. :)
