I Fear I'm Hosed

The Bloggess just posted this:


So, for me, that's Audrey in Finding Audrey, who has suffered an as-yet-unidentified personal trauma that has her wearing dark glasses to avoid eye contact and hiding from the rest of the world; A.J. Fikry, described by most who know him as the most self-centered and selfish person they've ever met; and three teen alpha girls — Emerson, Tenley, and Sydney* — who are being tormented by an unseen, unknown enemy and as a result are emotional basket-cases.



(I haven't finished these books yet, I suspect some personal growth lies ahead for at least a handful of these characters, but at this writing they are troubled and hurting.)
 
In short: We're zombie food.


I'm also reading the new Stephen King book, but it's early days yet, I'm not sure who the protagonist even is.


It will be in the 90s and humid all week — perfect time to hunker down with library books, a cold drink, and a fan!

Ugh. I dislike summer. But July's almost over, this too shall pass.

— Lady C, which rhymes with "G," which stands for Good Attitude, ha


* The book is equally about all three of them, there's no single protagonist, though I think we're supposed to like outsider Sydney the best.

I am thoroughly enjoying all four books so far, btw. Check 'em out!

  1. I got the new Stephen King from the library but it said it was a sequel to Mr. Mercedes which I have NOT yet read. So I took it back unread.

    My zombie apocalypse team would be AWESOME: James Dean's character Jim Stark from "Rebel Without a Cause", Hiro & Baymax from "Big Hero Six" and Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell, master magicians from the TV miniseries. Obviously too much TV watching this past weekend...

    1. I didn't even think about TV, since I hardly watch anything in the summer, but I fell asleep watching "Outlander" last night and of course watched Jeopardy. So maybe my team is Claire, Jamie, and Alex Trebeck?

      I think "Finders, Keepers" is not a sequel, per se, but it includes some of the same characters. I didn't read Mr. Mercedes either, yawn, but the plot of this one intrigues me. The last Stephen King I read was the JFK one, which I ADORED; I'm not exactly keeping up, in other words.

      Lovely to hear from you! Kiss your boys for me. xxx
