How do you like your coffee?

Today I'm blogging about some of the things I learned about coffee while researching SEXPRESSO NIGHT ( now available from Ellora's Cave) over at Nine Naughty Novelists - come on by!
I finished The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes. She is one of my favourite authors, but this wasn't my favourite book. Lots of characters and I didn't connect with all of them. It took a while to figure out what was going on - okay it took the whole book, and at the end I felt a little let down. There was one hint (that I caught anyway, maybe others whizzed by me) about it and that wasn't even much. At first, I noticed that the days were going backwards, yet the events weren't. I said that to my husband, and my daughter (aka Miss Smartypants) overheard and said, "It's a countdown". Duh. Of course it's a countdown! Then I got all excited about what we were counting down to. All the characters are moving toward the same one point in time, one day, and I did like the ending for some of them but much of it felt very deus ex machina - I mean, come on? A chunk of ice falling out of the sky? Still, a very entertaining Marian read.
Just started Pleasure and Purpose by Megan Hart, another favourite author!
What I'm Reading Wednesday
I finished Strip Search by Shayla Black aka Shelley Bradley. I really enjoyed this story though I did want to give Mark a smack at one point but then every good hero needs a little smack once in a while when he's being a stubborn male!

I had all these great books loaded on my Sony reader and then by chance I happened upon a new release by my FAVOURITE AUTHOR Marian Keyes. So sorry everyone else, she moved to the top of the list with The Brightest Star in the Sky. I've started it and can't quite figure it out, many characters, though I do notice we are moving backward through time...tomorrow is a day off for Remembrance Day and maybe I'll get more reading done! (Should be writing, but...)
New Marian Keyes book!!

I was so excited when I went to the book store and saw Marian Keyes' new book out! Finally!! (No worries, Marian!) She aplogizes for how "embarassingly long" it took to write this new book. I'm just impatient. I've already started it and have had some laugh out loud moments already. My husband says, "Is this going to be another one of those books?" She's funny!!
