After a lot of thought, I've decided to take a break from blogging for the foreseeable future. With my little C creeping its way back into my life and possible long term treatment now, I need to take a couple of things off my plate for the time being, and the blog is going to be one of those things. As it is, it felt like it was becoming more of a chore than anything else. I need my reading time to be more enjoyable right now, more of the escape that I really need, and what I don't need is the little voice in the back of my head telling me how many reviews I'm behind and trying to come up with what I need to say about the book.

I simply want to read.

I'll more than likely occasionally post on here what I've been reading, and if there is something that really blows my mind, I'll probably have more to say about it and may write up a proper post, but for right now, things are going to be very quiet around here.

As always, happy reading!

I will continue to blog according to my health and ability, and connecting my posts thru Goodreads, so please be patient if things get quiet around here again this year.

I am happy to report that my bone marrow transplant was a success and that I'm feeling more like myself everyday. That said, I'm going to try to start blogging a little more frequently, but please bare with me as I still continue to recover.

22. The Love Potion Murders in the Museum of Man by Alfred Alcorn

LibraryThing Early Reviewers



Title: The Love Potion Murders in the Museum of Man
Author: Alfred Alcorn
Copyright: 2009
Pages: 288
Format: ARC from publisher through LTER program
Rating: 2/5 stars
Finished: 4-1-09

I received The Love Potion Murders in the Museum of Man from LibraryThing's Early Reviewer program. I finished it awhile ago, and have been trying to decide how to write about it. I won't generally read other reviews before I write my own, but I had to double check some of the other reviews on LT to make sure I wasn't the only person who had trouble with the book. I had quite the love/hate relationship with this book. When the story was moving, I found it witty and the mystery had some level of uniqueness to it, but when the book was slow, it was agonizingly slow, to the point where on more than one occasion I had to drag myself through it and convince myself not to put it down for good. However, I can say that I might have to see if I can come across the first book in the series some time, but only if there is absolutely nothing on Mt. TBR that catches my interest first.

That sucks when on one hand you like it but the other you dont. Hope you moved on to something way more exciting.
