QotD: In Heavy Rotation

What albums are in heavy rotation for you right now?








These are the three cd’s Iisten to on my five hour trips home.  Occasionally mixed in with a couple of radio stations.  I can pretty much sing all the songs on all of these though, and they’re a good mix of tempos and rhythms, so I’m happy with them.  I’d add Keane into the mix, but it’s a dualdisc and I’m afraid it might get stuck in my car’s cd player.  I also have a couple of comedy discs, but I don’t listen to them too often because I don’t want to get tired of them.  Comedy just doesn’t stay funny for me if I listen to the same jokes all the time.

The Truth-Teller’s Tale by Sharon Shinn

I just got done reading this book.  It was just as good as the first one.  I was a little disappointed that I didn’t get to find out more about the characters from the first book, but this book had it’s own amazing characters and story.  I absolutely love the twins.  I guess part of it is because they seem like two sides of my own psyche.

I’m a person that people confide in, yet I am very very bad at telling a lie and can very rarely pass off anything as true that’s not.  The only way I ever do that is to stretch the truth or not tell all of the truth.  If people ask me something outright I answer them honestly.

Adele and Eleda both connected with me in a way that characters in a book don’t often do.  Usually I find traits in a character that  I’d like to have, not ones that are already so close to my own characteristics.  A highly recommended book.  What a wonderful way to spend the morning!


Wolf Hunting by Jane Lindskold

I just got done reading this book.  I love this series.  It’s a great set of books, this is the fifth so far, and there’s still more I want to know.  There’s a good mix of old and new characters and even the characters that have been around since the first page don’t become boring and bland.  Somehow they stay interesting as do the story lines.

My best friend bought me the first book in the series, Through Wolf’s Eyes, because I like wolves and she thought I’d like it.  Now I’m hooked.  Jane Lindskold has written some other great books as well, if you’re a fantasy fan you should definitely check her out.

Now to find another book to read.


QotD: Discovering Music

Go to one random page in Explore Audio. What CD do you see that you’re most interested in listening to?


This is the cd I decided on, mainly because I don’t actually know any of the songs, but I’m sure I’ve heard them before on my yahoo radio station.  So I think it’d be cool to get to know the songs better, plus it’s a very interesting name.

This might be one I add to my collection just to see what it’s like, granted it’s available on yourmusic.com.







The Safe-Keeper’s Secret by Sharon Shinn

I just got done reading this book.  It was sitting in the living room, I was half paying attention to the VH1 top 20, so I decided to pick it up.  And then continued reading it until I was done, minus a bathroom break or two.  It was a very enjoyable experience.  The kitty curled up in my lap, a very nice way to spend the morning.

I loved the book.  I love most books I read so that’s probably not a surprise.  But it was very engaging and still simple.  The premise of having Safe-Keepers, and Truth-Tellers, and Dream-Makers is one I find intriguing.  I really enjoyed this book, a very good, fast read that made me feel good.  I now have to read the next book, The Truth-Teller’s tale.  I hope that it at least touches on the characters from this story, because I want to know more about them.
