Musing Monday's June 30, 2014

TC is in the sun musing about the chipmunk she sees out the window.
Hopefully that is all she does.  So far this month she has presented me
 with two chipmunks - one alive and one dead but both in my bedroom.
Musing Mondays asks you to muse about one of the following each week.Musing Mondays is sponsored by Should Be Reading.
• Describe one of your reading habits.
• Tell us what book(s) you recently bought for yourself or someone else, and why you chose that/those book(s).
• What book are you currently desperate to get your hands on? Tell us about it! 
• Tell us what you’re reading right now — what you think of it, so far; why you chose it; what you are (or, aren’t) enjoying it.
• Do you have a bookish rant? Something about books or reading (or the industry) that gets your ire up? Share it with us!
• Instead of the above questions, maybe you just want to ramble on about something else pertaining to books — let’s hear it, then!

I usually pick audio books written by authors that I have seen but have not read anything they published.  Recently I picked up Ice Forged (The Ascendant Kingdoms series)  by Gail Z. Martin and Written in Red (The Courtyard Series) by Anne Bishop.  Both are fairly prolific fantasy writers but I since I did not know their work I passed them by for authors whose work I was familiar with.  I loved both books.  Since Ice Forged and Written in Red were the first book in a new series and book two in both series had already come out I did not have to wait to read the next book in the series.  Worked well.  While I did not have to wait for book two book three in both series has not come out yet.   Now I have to wait almost a year to get my next fix in both series.  I guess that is the price we readers pay when we enjoy how a authors writes.  We have to give them time to write so we can read.
