The stand alone companion to Blood Magic, which we all know I loved enough to want to fight people about, The Blood Keeper did not disappoint, and if anything I think I love it even more than I did Blood Magic, who knew that was even possible?
First things first, can we appreciate this cover? Oh man, it's so gorgeous and I'd be a total liar if I said that this cover wasn't part of the reason I decided that I needed it. That being said, I finally got time to read it and yup, glad I did. Warning, this may very well be the laziest book review I've ever done. No fault to the book, I'm just hella lazy today.
I have to be completely honest that I had no idea what I was getting into when I decided to buy this book. I didn't read the blurb before I bought it, or before I started reading. Only that the cover looked happy and cheerful and so very different from the books I'm used to. "I love books, " I thought to myself as I put this one in my cart. "Even if I don't read it, it's so pretty and will look nice on my shelf."

No matter how hard I try I can't focus on any book I sit down to read. I can't review a book I can't read, and it's not fair to blame the authors for my frazzled and fried brain being unable to focus on any of their glorious words.
So there it is, Chainsaw is stuck.
I've been working on my own writing instead of reading, but as all readers and writers know, reading is like a vitamin to good writing, so even writing has been going slow.
I won't even mention the junk that has been going on in off the internet land because it's just as if not more frustrating than a reading slump.
Bear with me a while longer. I swear I have some book reviews coming!
This is just a little something I wanted to share. As many of you know, I have been working on my own writing projects as I slowly whittle my way through my ever expanding TBR. The project that I'm working on goes a little bit like this:
