Amy’s having a blogiversary contest that involves revealing your “heart list.” There will be yarn, food, and a “dog prize” (although it’s unclear to me whether you actually receive a dog for that last). Winner will be selected April 4.
The Yarn Harlot returns to the Twin Cities on April 10! Alas, I’m not able to attend this time around, but if you’re going and you’re interested in meeting up with some local knitters for dinner beforehand, check out this Ravelry thread.
Steward of Song by Adam Stemple. The sequel to Singer of Souls is another well-written urban fantasy from Stemple, but it sadly lacks the intensity of the first book.
The Dead Girls’ Dance: The Morganville Vampires, Book Two and Midnight Alley: The Morganville Vampires, Book Three by Rachel Caine. This teen-oriented paranormal series has quietly sucked me in…
T is for Trespass: A Kinsey Milhone Mystery by Sue Grafton. What can I say about Grafton’s Kinsey Milhone series? Always a good read, although I do wish Grafton had a lighter hand with the foreshadowing.
Over Hexed by Vicki Lewis Thompson. Pleasantly distracting trashy paranormal romance – no vampires or werewolves. 🙂
Gods in Alabama by Joshilyn Jackson. I’d heard mixed things about this novel, but I enjoyed it and didn’t untangle the heart of the story on my own.
Dingo by Charles de Lint. De Lint’s latest is a solid young adult novel set near Newford.
Recently, I won a contest over at Brigitte’s and the prize package arrived in record breaking time (we suspect that someone usually just walks the mail to Minneapolis from Toronto).
“Oh, what’d Gandalf send me?! That little hottie…” -Mayhem
“Simmer down there, Mayhem. Hmm, I wonder what Mae’s included for me, since I know she thinks I’m the cat’s meow.” -Chaos
A new kitty toy, a black cat Pez dispenser, a thrummed mitten kit (yay!! For thrums, I’ll knit thumbs), tea, a Toronto travel mug, some Green & Black’s cocoa, yummy chocolate, and my all-time favorite gluten-free crackers – thank you so much, Brigitte!
“Mom, is chocolate really bad for cats, or do you just want to keep it all for yourself?” -Chaos
Darn it – busted! 😉
Oh yeah, and it snowed yesterday. By the time you read this, we may have had seven or eight inches of snow! Nope, this is not an April Fools joke, alas.
“If I tip my head just so, the flakes sort of look like birds…” -Chaos
