Tana French is the Bomb

I have a serious girl crush on her.
Faithful PlaceFaithful Place by Tana French

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

O.M.G. Tana French - I (heart) you. This was by far her best yet. Frank Mackey, his disturbed f'ed up family and the grit of Faithful Place were brilliantly written. I give this 4.5 stars. There were only a couple of small parts I felt bored, but who doesn't expect that in a novel at some point. I'm sure it wasn't the book, it was all me.
I have to admit I had a feeling who did it and even though I was right, I didn't feel let down at all. It played out perfectly.
I can't recommend this book enough. 1000 times over READ THIS BOOK!

To update or not to update,

That is the question.

Actually, that reminds me of a t-shirt I want from cafépress. It's a Doctor Who thing where he rambles on about pushing a red button. You had to be there or not depending on your perspective.

October has no disguise from Autumn around these parts. The trees look GORGEOUS. The colors are bright and deep that sing heartily into one's soul. Makes me feel like a kid again. Walking through the yard and hearing the crinkle beneath my feet as the cool air envelopes my lungs and whispers in my ear 'your alive!'

I've got some pics somewhere around here of the family. More will be included with those shortly. Lil girl has a swim meet coming up along with Halloween. But alas, this will be our first Halloween ever apart. Qué? you ask. Well, Michael and I are going to the Rally to Restore Sanity in DC that weekend. It's up to the awesomeness of our in-laws to take the kids trick or treating neighborhood this year. And by awesomeness, I mean they are flying from NY to IN to watch the kids for us. How freaking awesome are they? UBER.

I bought costumes already, so, no worries there. Lil man is going to be Darth Vader and Lil girl is a Sorceress. Very cool.

I have completed the story of my book and I'm only down to serious editing right now. Along the way I'm inputting the subplot. It was always there, I just didn't know it until a friend pointed it out to me. (thanks Jo)

Other than that, same shite different day. Now, I'm off to find some more info on David Tennant''Single Father' along with a few other BBC TV dramas that hit UK telly's this past week. Interweb don't fail me now...
