OK, this is the scenario I'm in right now. I started listening to this book at work months ago (you all know how I like to listen to audio books while I'm at work). Now I'm far enough into it that I HAVE to finish, but the main character is really started to get on my freaking nerves!! Do you ever do that? I would probably stop reading it if I didn't have so much time invested in it already. And speaking of time, you all know it never takes me this long to read/listen to a book, so that kinda tells you that I've been reluctant to listen to it.
Anyway, even with that being said, I like the book alright. I mean, I'm reading it, aren't I? Plus, what I didn't mention is that it's the 2nd book in a 2-book series, so I can't NOT finish it. I have to know how the stories wrap up.
Just tell us what the book is already!!! (That's what I can hear you all yelling at me). Well, here 'tis.

I DO like IT because it has interesting Chinese folklore and I get to learn about a different culture, even if it is a fantasy-type story. Plus, it has a kick-ass female main character, which I always appreciate, even if I want to bean her over the head with her own swords quite often.
Also, just as an aside, on my Kindle right now I'm reading the classic novel Great Expectations by Dickens. I'm reading this because they made a mini-series that's going to be on Masterpiece Theater in April and I LOVE anything Masterpiece, so I wanna know the story. It's starting slow, but I hear it really is a good one. It's not a classic for nothing, you know.
Oh, and another aside, did you all notice how I just jumped back into blogging like nothing happened and I didn't just lose like a whole month? Yeah...we'll pretend that didn't happen.
Love to all,
