Because I could not stop for death...

It's kindly stopped for me. (Good poem...)

Seriously, though, either this is a massive migraine aura or I caught my loving husband's stomach flu from the weekend. I feel HORRIBLE.

I finished Hush, Hush yesterday. It was good. It lived up to its hype in many ways. I flew through it in only four hours or less and that's about 100 pages an hour. I like when I read that fast... it means the action/dialogue/thrill level is just right for me. Good book. It left a lot of things open-ended, but I'm guessing/assuming there is a sequel in the works. I'm also hoping that's why Nora is so young in this book.

Okay, I'm going to go lie down and hope death comes quickly.


  1. hope you feel better soon!


  2. Two things:

    1. I'm so sorry you're sick! That's awful. Didn't you already meet your flu quota for the season? Feel better soon!

    2. This is my favorite poem ever. Not my favorite Emily Dickinson poem, favorite poem poem. I don't know why either, but your post title made me happy.

  3. Had to google Hush, Hush. Never heard of it, but thanks, always want to hear about a good book.

    Now, close your eyes, sleep. Get well.

  4. Yes, there is a sequel coming out this fall. I think it's called Crescendo. Hope you feel better soon:)

  5. I'm staying away from Hush, Hush. It's just too similar to my current WIP. It makes me want to hit someone o_O

  6. Get better, Wendy. Why do you keep getting sick? That makes me want to hit someone, too:}
