I just finished The Dead Girls' Dance by Rachel Caine, book 2 in The Morganville Vampires series. At about 250 pages each, I'm taking 5 hours to finish each - my standard reading rate is 50 pages per hour. So if I start now, even with a break for dinner, I should finish book 3 tonight and get a good start on book 4 before I go to bed. Depending on how much caffeine I drink this evening, I just might finish book 4 too! I think it's looking good for getting all 7 read before Monday night. I'll still be short two books but that's ok, maybe I'll buy those there at the signing.
Wish me luck!
Wow, in my rush to start on the next book I almost forgot to mention the one I just finished. Well, I guess that my enthusiasm for reading the next book is actually a really good review - The Dead Girls' Dance was so good that I'm eagerly rushing to read the next in the series, Midnight Alley. I 'm not doing full reviews of any of these books, if you want that kind of information you're welcome to read all the reviews at the Amazon.com link I post for each book.
Now, I'm off to refill my quart cup of ice water and then head back out to the back porch where I'll be reading until the kids make me feed them dinner. Hey, I DID wash all the dishes this morning before I started reading for the day. And I took Giselle to soccer practice, and I returned some shin guards to Target, and I got my eggs and veggies and bacon and sausage at the farmers market, and I picked Giselle up from soccer practice (I surprised her with a lemon/pina colada Jim Jim's). So I haven't been sitting around all day just reading.
