I've theorized on twitter that this might be because I'm working so hard on my books. I'm writing and editing all of the time-- that's a lot of words coming at me everyday. So maybe, that's why my reading drive has been out of gas. My brain is feeding on my books.
Good news is that I think I might be getting the desire again. I'm still writing and editing a lot, so maybe this is a temporary feeling. Still I just finished BREATHLESS by Sophie Jordan. Breathless is a spin-off novella about the FIRELIGHT character, Az.
video review here. While I did enjoy those books, I can't really say the same about this novella.
Breathless by Sophie Jordan
My rating: 3.5 of 5 stars
I should probably stop reading Novellas. I don't think they ever leave a lasting impression. This one was no different. It was well written. The romance was nice. The story was ok. Nothing exceptional.
Recommended *If you love the series enough to read it.

It took me longer to finish Breathless than it should have, because I didn't have the
TAKING ON THE DEAD by Annie Walls. Its been on my mind ever since. A zombie novel. Just what I need. A good-old, gritty survival story.
My pure excitement for the book got me to finish Breathless this morning, which couldn't have take me more than 10 minutes. I finished it, opened up Taking On The Dead, and started reading. I didn't read a lot, just a few pages. Long enough to see the first zombie-- and it was GREAT! I'm already in love with the writing and the setting. I can't wait to keep reading.
Btw, when I went on to Goodreads to add this to my reading shelf, I noticed that a lot of you already had it added as a "To-Read". How dare you know about this awesome zombie novel with loads of potential, and not tell me! For shame. For shame on all of you ;P
Anyway, (Not that anyone ever comments, but just in case) what are you guys reading and what did you just finish. Anything good? Hiding any zombie novels that I should know about? Well, off to do some more editing. Talk soon guys! -Lindsay Mead
