Off to the country...

 This is Mother and Child weekend down at the cabin.  Amelia, Erin, and several of their friends plus at least 10 kids under the age of six.  Whoa, Nellie!  I'll be going down later to spend the night.  Thank goodness, Fee and I have our own little cabin, because the big one has to be a mad house!

I'm looking forward to seeing "adopted" daughter, Ren, and her two little ones.  Ren is another reader, and we've shared many book titles over the years.  She and Erin were friends in high school at the Louisiana School for Math, Science, and the Arts, roomed together at Northwestern in Natchitoches, and later, in Baton Rouge.

I've finished a couple of good fantasy books that I'll review soon:  Reader & Raelynx by Sharon Shin and Throne of Jade by Naomi Novik.  Have an R.I.P. book in progress, and it is very good as well--Four and Twenty Blackbirds by Cherie Priest. 


  1. I hope you have a wonderful time, Jenclair! Sounds like you'll be quite busy!

    I look forward to your reviews of Shin and Novik's books. I've been curious about Novik for awhile now but haven't yet read any of her work.

  2. Thanks, Wendy! I'm home for a little while, but had a great time yesterday and last night. So many kids!

    I love Sharon Shinn's Twelve Houses series, and think I'll feel the same way about all of Novik's. I've enjoyed the first two very much.
