As you can see, I’ve been working through my comic book TBR this week, and finally got caught up with all the Batman Eternal comics I have (there are two more waiting for me at the comic shop by now). The story line’s interesting, but I’ve been a bit disappointed in Batman himself. It seems like the story really centered around…well, everyone else, and he’s been sort of ancillary, although the last two issues I read seemed a bit better in that regard. I don’t know…something just seems “off”, but I can’t quite put my finger on it. We’ll see how it continues…

Dare to Love was a good read – very angsty, but in a very plausible way. I’ll be looking up the next book in the Dare series soon. I generally enjoy Carly Phillips books though…easy reading, deep characters.

I was enjoying Lovers at Heart too, until just today (um, Tuesday, that is). The main heroine just crossed into TSTL territory for me (too stupid to live), and while I’ll finish the book (I think), it feels like the story should have ended already, and now we’re headed into padding territory just to make it a longer book…which never works. Maybe it’ll get better again, or maybe her actions will become more plausible if I keep reading…

The Eye of God is really chaotic, and also really hard to put down. There are things going on in one spot with one Sigma team, different things going on with another team, new members who are dealing with diving into action, several different storylines that I’m sure will eventually converge on each other, I’m just not sure how yet…

Yeah. Last night I pulled the old “just one more chapter” line on poor hubby…and it ended up being three, of course (and I still didn’t want to put it down, and wouldn’t have except for work in the morning). *sigh* I have Friday off from the day job. I suspect Thursday night might be a late one…

This week, I have more comics to catch up on, and I dare say I’ll finish the books I’ve got going (aside from Tatterdemon), and then I have the brand new Jill Shalvis novel to start. And hubby finished with Innocent Blood by Rollins & Cantrell too, so I have that burning a hole in my nightstand as well.

Is there anything better than being surrounded by piles (digital or physical) books just waiting for their turn to be read? Maybe…but not much tops that for me…
