Funny how life can interfere with reading isn't it? I love to read but some days I cannot focus --- too much chaos around the house I guess what with kids and cats and cats and kids. I can see where doing your own writing would make reading other people's work difficult at times - hard to enjoy a good read if you are under pressure to produce. Chris is good - hope you get a chance to read him soon. My 14 year old (who is really too young for these books) adores his main character.
I've heard good things about Grabenstein's books--I just haven't had a spare minute to read. I've stopped a couple of chapters in on the MASK OF ATREUS -- no fault of the book -- I'm just overwhelmed with projects right now. GOD, how I would love to just have a day to sit and read!
I didn't either. I like modern and slightly off-beat (which explains why I adore Chris Grabenstein at the moment). Funny too but not repetitive o r slapstick - just some good humour in the stories. I think that is one thing I really liked about Grace and Peter. The stories are good and the people are fun. Great combination.
well, thank you so much, LC. I was pretty disappointed too, but I plan on eventually finishing up the series--and the truth is, I wasn't quite ready to write that next Grace and Peter book, so this gives me time to think about what I really want to do with it.
Diana - I won a copy of Sonnet off you last year in some contest or other, had to rush out to get the other two and then found out that there is not another one in the near future. I nearly cried. I loved those books. Still hoping to hear more of Grace's adventures and looking forward to your new series too.
