Thunderstorms and Late Night Reading

Thunderstorms and a terrified Maltese shook me awake at 4:30 this morning.  Once he found that I was awake, he climbed up on my pillow, buried himself under my chin and trembled so hard I thought he might fall apart!  Clearly going back to sleep before the storm ended wasn’t going to happen.


So I did what I always do when I have an unfilled stretch of time…  I read.   Not wanting to get deeply engrossed in the book I’m currently reading and end up not going back to sleep the rest of the night, I downloaded a free selection onto the nook app on my phone.  “Waking Kate” by Sarah Addison Allen is a free download for both nook and kindle but I’m not even sure what to call it.  At only thirty eight pages it isn’t even a novella but was the perfect length to fill the short period of time until the thunder ended.   “Waking Kate” is a teaser for her newest book “Lost Lake.”  Which, after reading this short prequel during the wee hours of the morning,  I have added to my must read list!  Of course I would read pretty much anything by this author!

      • I read The Sugar Queen. I loved the characters and the little bit of magic that was so grounded in reality! And Yay! I’m glad to be the first. It is hard starting out. This is a large community so it can feel overwhelming to get involved but most everyone is really nice. Don’t be afraid to reach out and say hello! Twitter is the best place to find people with similar interests I think. Good luck and feel free to email me if you need anything!
