Moonspun Magic. Nice Cover. Not. Posted by Picasa

Well, over the weekend, I actually started the second of the Catherine Coulter books that I’d borrowed from the library. The book I chose was Moonspun Magic. Sigh.

I started reading this on Friday evening. Didn’t manage to read more than ten pages before my mind started wandering. I finally gave up for the night when I got to page twenty-one. Sigh.

On Saturday morning, hubby and I had a lie-in, and once again, I tried to read. This time I got to page 68, before I decided there were better ways of spending my Saturday mornings. I then spent the next three hours cleaning house. Sigh.

Hubby and I had plans on Saturday evening, so reading was out of the question.

Sunday Morning, I tried again with Moonspun Magic. I got to page 104, when I suddenly decided that this was a good opportunity to watch Terminator 3: Rise of The Machines, which Paul had bought on DVD, and I’d forbidden him to watch in my presence. It was actually better than I thought it would be. Sigh.

I was half-way through T3, when I realised what the problem with Moonspun Magic was. It was f*cking BORING as hell. Sheesh.

So in the end, I decided to scrap Moonspun Magic, and fast forward to the next book on the list which was Night Fire.

    If you want to read historicals, Karen, I think you should switch to Catherine Anderson’s. Try “Coming Up Roses” and maybe that’ll turn things around for you. 😉

    Karen, might I suggest that if you want to honestly give historicals a try, you move out of the mass 80’s offerings or at least move into the Classics of that time?

    Best,

    Sarah, chuckling over the books you have chosen for yor first foray.

    Karen, honestly after reading your comment:
    “On Saturday morning, hubby and I had a lie-in, and once again, I tried to read. This time I got to page 68, before I decided there were better ways of spending my Saturday mornings. I then spent the next three hours cleaning house. Sigh.”
    you sound just like your description of the book!!!…diablos! Most be the food, come here to eat some “Mangu” or “Sancocho”…I still have hopes for you!

    Anne, I’ll be going to the library later today to try some other authors

    Sarah, I thought Catherine Coulter was really popular? Don’t worry, I shall be trying a bunch of others.

    Ro, now I never said that we didn’t have sex did we? I said we had a lie-in, which could mean, that we may have done the nasty, before my attempt at reading, either way, I don’t think I’ll confirm or deny, you’re far too obsessed with my sex life (g)
