Random Ramblings, #1

Bookish Rambling:

  1. I’ve been reading Furyborn by Claire Legrand, and JEEZ! I’m such a judgmental reader. I absolutely HATE knowing what’s going to happen to character at the beginning of the book, and this book starts with a flash-forward. I KNOW it’s probably going to be a good book, but it’s hard for me to be motivated when I know certain characters are going to have unhappy endings. Does anyone else do this?!
  2. I really need to get over this “I wanna read fantasy/paranormal romance” thing because I’m SO DAMN picky. Like I want romance to be heavy in it, but not the only focus of the story. I want characters who are under 30, because I’m under 30, but I don’t want to read books with younger teens as main characters. I really need to stop having so many “requirements” for my cravings.
  3. Why, oh why, doesn’t my library have an eBook copy of Spinning Silver?

Writing Rambling:

  1. I really need to write more. It’s been, like, way too long. But it’s hard for me to focus with “the big move” happening so quickly. Plus, my husband and I are staying with family for the next two weeks because we didn’t want to pay for another full month of rent here, so there’s the whole not having much space thing…
  2. Does anyone else HAVE to have all their main characters named before they can really get into figuring out the story? I can’t focus on anything until I’ve named my characters. It’s really frustrating.

Personal Rambling:

  1. I’m so very excited about moving to California, but I’m also a little terrified. I’ve never lived in a big city before. I mean, at least not what I’d qualify as a big city. Mostly, I’m nervous about driving there.
  2. Also, how the heck do adults make friends? The last time I haven’t lived in my hometown was when I went off to college. You’re practically given friends in college because it’s so easy to make friends AND everyone else is in the same position. I’m kind of nervous about that one.

      I figured it would be. The friends I have I’ve known since high school or college. I’ll definitely look into Meetup! That’s a great idea. I’m really hoping it’s easier since I’m moving to an area where most people are “transplants” like me.

    I totally understand what you mean about books. Sometimes it feels like only teenagers have fantasy adventures and anyone older is a bit player. It’s why I wrote a series, but it’s a mixed blessing because I already know what happens! But if you’re looking for fantasy romance with over 20s but under 30s, check out Elizabeth Hunter books. She has a ton of them and something for everyone.

      Yes, definitely. I would LOVE to see more “New Adult” fiction that’s a bit…better? than what’s out there, especially in the fantasy genre. I’ll definitely check her out. Thanks for the recommendation! ๐Ÿ™‚
