Reading progress update: I've read 225 out of 399 pages.
Nightshade - John Saul

I want all these rich snobs to die. I hate people that harp about breeding, like only BAD people come from BAD families. "Know the father, know the son." Yeah, well, fuck you. My grandfather abandoned his son, and my daddy turned out to be a great guy. POTUS knows his family tree, and he's a fucking nightmare. Breeding doesn't mean shit. Especially since all these rich families are usually so inbred I'm surprised they don't have extra toes.

Reading progress update: I've read 104 out of 399 pages.
Nightshade - John Saul

I would like to take a moment here to make a PSA to Gerry Conroe, the editor of the Granite Falls Ledger, and anyone else who thinks deer hunting is "pointless": deer hunting is good for the environment because deer reproduce rapidly and humans, being the stupid creatures that we are, have killed off most of their natural predators. This means they can keep spawning and spawning without any population control, and that, my friends, is devastating to agriculture. Deer can leap most 10 foot fences, and they are notoriously aggressive during mating season. Without people hunting deer to keep them in check, crops would be wiped out, top soil would erode and other animals would starve. Now, I'm not saying everyone is entitled to just go shoot as many deer as they please. No. You are only to hunt males, and only so many, and only during deer season. And for the love of God, eat what you hunt. Don't be that guy. I despise big game hunters, trophy hunters that shoot beautiful animals just for the horns, or the skin or a cool photo. With those people, it's not sport. Sport would be winning the hunt bare handed against the lion, not from 100 yards away with a rifle and a scope. 

 

But anyway, hunting is sort of necessary. A necessary evil, a lot of people say. Until wolves and cougars are more numerous in the wild again, animals like deer, rabbit and ducks have to be kept under control. Those are just facts. 

 

Now back to your regularly scheduled reading.

Reading progress update: I've read 15 out of 416 pages.
Nightshade - John Saul

I haven't been able to read much lately because of my migraines. So I do audiobooks. Too bad Libby didn't have this one.

 

But here's a fun story. I saw my new primary care doctor to get things set up and running, and he recommended they run an allergy panel on me. I agreed because it has been 15 years since I was tested. I didn't think they would find anything, though. I was told I had non-allergic rhinitis. Weeeelllllll....not this time. The nurse tested me for 40 different triggers, and I came back allergic to a whole host of local Okie grass and trees, plus four types of mold and....CATS. I am allergic to cats. My cats. Kill me.

 

I'm about to start an aggressive regimen of allergy shots, and I have to carry an EpiPen for a while. But the treatment has a high level of success for those that complete it. It just takes 3-5 years. 

 

But they said that may explain why my migraines are so bad. I never had these problems in Tennessee because I wasn't allergic to the local flora there. I also only had one or two cats while there. Here, my allergens have quadrupled. 

 

My life is loads of fun, yeah?

Nightshade
Nightshade: Die Wächter - Andrea Cremer
The Characters

Calla Tor
Renier “Ren” Laroche
Seamus “Shay” Doran

The Story

I found this book to be equal parts intriguing and annoying.

The Intriguing:
- WTF is going on? The whole mystery of the Searcher/Keepers is what I want to know more about. I’m dying for them to uncover the truth.
- What exactly is Shay (a.k.a. The Scion)? Why is he so important?

The Annoying:
- The love triangle between Calla, Ren and Shay. I understand that they are young and hormones are raging but we could have saved 25 pages by not talking about it so much.
- The double EFFING standards! “Oh, Ren’s a young alpha male it’s natural for him to go out with other girls and want sex but NO Calla you can’t dare have desire too.” I’m paraphrasing, but you get the gist. They can take that crap and shove it.

Overall I liked the book. I think it some pages could have been edited out and some opponents (looking at you huge spider) could have been left out altogether. But I’m intrigued enough to go on to the next book.

Charming Read
Charmed Fates: A Paranormal Mpreg Gay Romance (The Omega Date Diaries) - Odin Nightshade

Charmed Fates is certainly an appropriate name for this newest addition to the Omega Date Diaries. This opposites attract story is both charming and sweet. Indigo has an innocence about him that is oh, so endearing and Aaron is quite the skeptic, but still a likable character. The book is well-written and entertaining. It is a quick read, but there's no shortage of story here as Indigo and Aaron find themselves thrown together, again and again, by an uncanny set of coincidences. While there is some blush worthy steam, this one has a bit more on the sweet romance side than others in the series, but it's just as good and this pair is so good together in spite of their differences. It is part of a series, but each book is a standalone, the only connection being the Omega Date app. All in all, Nightshade has given us another delightful Alpha/Omega tale.
