My week was deliciously filled with all sorts of book related stuff.
• Early in the week I received a package from Chris with a yaoi novel and two of her ManLove cd’s. It’s always nice to receive packages by mail, but especially with content like this. Thanks, Chris!• I actually found the time to do some bloghopping two nights in a row this week. Yay! And consequently I immediately bought too many books again because of the reviews I read… (sigh)
• On another night of this week I had the girls from my book club over to discuss Emma Donoghue’s novel Room and all sorts of other book related stuff.
• And last night after work I met Lis (who you might know from her guest reviews here) for a bite and a drink and lots and lots of booktalk!
Room by Emma Donoghue.
And then Tam distracted me with her review of a short read at the Brief Encounters blog, which I happened to have on my ereader and I impulsively started reading it (One Night Stand by Cassandra Gold from the Friction anthology) and subsequently I read another story from the same anthology: Yes! by Kim Dare. Both were very enjoyable!
Darkfever, who uhm… charmed me with her remark about age: “Thirty was a million light-years away. Forty wasn’t even in the same galaxy.” Ouch. Thank you Mac! ;)
Wishing on a Blue Star. It’s free and features stories by Z.A. Maxfield, Amy Lane, Jan Irving, Victor J. Banis, Jambrea Jo Jones, Clare London, Mary Calmes and Lex Valentine. The anthology was written in honor of author Patric Michael who is battling cancer. Both Chris and Jase brought this book to my attention. It’s a free download here.
So, now I’m in the middle of four(!) different books and I can’t decide with which one I want to continue first. Maybe it’s best when I start a fifth book then, lol! Or maybe I should let you vote. :)
But since it’s Happy Gay Friday I think I will pick one of the m/m reads though.
Jen, aka Twimom, and Patti. Jen is starting a month of celebrating today and she invited me to join in the fun with a guest post. Woohoo! She has wonderful prizes to give away, go check it out here.
And Patti has an M/M Romance Month starting next week about which I’m very excited as well, even if she hadn’t asked me to be part of it! I just love this genre. And look at her button!
I’m still not sure though what to write about. I’m free to write about anything M/M related (my favorite book/series, how/when I started reading this genre, favorite topics in m/m books, books everyone should read, etc.), but I can’t decide on the topic.
So please tell me: what do you think would be an interesting thing to hear/talk about for this guest post?
Have a Happy Gay Friday!
