Well, hell.

April 8, 2009

Guys, I decided to read over the first three chapters of Secret Vampire while I was eating dinner.  I thought it was a good use of my time.  Then I could make some notes, whatever, and by the time the spaghetti was gone I’d have done everything I needed to do to be ready to hook up with Liss later this week.

And then I read the first line.

And then I totally lost it.

See, my friend was very recently diagnosed with cancer, and it all start with stomach pains with her too.  I literally put the book down a chapter and a half in–right when Poppy realizes from the doctor’s expression that things are capital-B Bad–and started to cry.

This is going to be the least funny recap ever.

    We can start with something else. Trust me, I understand entirely. Secret Circle?

      I don’t have it.

      No, I want to do this. It just threw me. If nothing else, it’s an interesting discussion on cancer–and isn’t that why Smith stopped writing in the first place? Maybe this was her psyche’s way of dealing with it. If she can do it, I can do it.

    You can do it!! There are so many other things to focus on for your snarky comments. There’s Phil, there’s James, there’s even a brief mention of Thierry (yep, he’s my favorite). I can’t wait to read your recaps 🙂

      Oh, I am ready for Cover!James. So far I really like Book!James but the cover is cracking me up.

    The covers are the always “awesome”. Take Soulmate for example. Why does Thierry look like a corpse!?!

      My daughter’s been hoarding the books so I haven’t seen that one in a long time.

      They’re odd covers for sure.
