Yesterday was Summer in full, Hot, humid, sunny, and muggy glory. A day for taking advantage of the nearby river. Alas, the hot humid day brought with it some forceful wind. Forceful enough to white cap the river and portend a rough and rigorous kayak paddle. Now, that's not to say that I shun a vigorous paddle. On a hot humid day working up a sweat is not my idea of a relaxing float.

On my way home to do the chores; feed the cats, bring in the trash container, and weed the garden, I stopped to pick-up the mail and I was pleasantly surprised to receive a package from Amazon. Enclosed was:

Faeries of Dreamdark. Blackbringer by Laini Taylor
.

I preordered this book from Amazon a couple of months ago. Laini Taylor is One of the duo who started the Blog: Sunday Scribblings. A blog offering a weekly prompt by either herself or Megg Genge , to which contributors offer their responses in either prose or poetry.

I started reading the book last night after supper and read the first 5 chapters. Now that I'm hooked I'll have to finish it today. I haven't visited the faerie world in quite some time, probably not since LOR. I always enjoy those visits and this is no exception. Any book that can grab a young readers attention and hold it as this one does is just what I'm looking for.

I might say that it's almost as relaxing as a smooth water kayak ride. ;-)

Nothing like hitting upon a good book you can hardly put down!Im always a little disappointed at the end b/c its over. When I find a good book I want everyone to read it..lol.

I live right on the Ohio River, I can walk to it. We grew up boating and were always on the river. I never thought about how lucky we were to have a big river practically in our backyard. I thought everybody did! lol
